IPL 2023: RCB vs MI, Today Match Prediction: Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians will begin their campaign in the fifth match of the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). RCB will look to maintain their recent dominance over MI having recorded three consecutive wins against MI in their last five meetings since IPL 2020. RCB, who are once again in search of their maiden title win in the league, would want to start on the high-note in front of their loyal fans at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

However, it remains to be seen how RCB will cope without players like Rajat Patidar and Josh Hazlewood, who both have been sidelined for at least the first half of this IPL due to injuries. The team will also have to wait for their Sri Lankan spin ace Wanindu Hasaranga, who is in New Zealand on national duty.

Mumbai Indians ended the last IPL at the last spot in the points table with only four wins to show from 14 matches.The most successful team in IPL history with five trophies in their cabinet, Mumbai will aim to put their best foot forward against a formidable RCB side.

Without their ace bowler Jasprit Bumrah and Jhye Richardson who are ruled out for the season, MI’s hopes will be pinned on Jofra Archer to fill the void and guide the other bowlers that the team management has marked out. Archer will have Australia’s Jason Behrendorff for company along with Akash Madhwal.
