Mumbai Indians will play the opening match of the IPL 2021 with Royal Challengers Bangalore on 9 April at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. It is the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.
They are the defending champions and looking for a third consecutive IPL title and sixth overall. But the first match isn’t going to be an easy win for MI as the contender RCB has infused young blood into the team. The star players of Mumbai Indians include captain Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Jaspreet Bumrah, and Trent Bolt.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB has yet to get its first IPL title despite having star players like Virat Kohli who is leading the team, AB de Villiers, and new recruit Glenn Maxwell. RCB is certainly a tough nut to crack for anyone but they have to prove their worth on the ground. The opening match is more challenging for RCB.
