Watch: Star Sports released a teaser for MI vs RCB
Fans are started to celebrate the Indian Premier League which is going to commence on April 9. The opening will be played between Rohit-led Mumbai Indians and Virat-led Royal Challengers Bangalore at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Both the teams have started their training ahead of the competition as we can expect some tough battle among them. Mumbai Indians will miss the service of Quinton de Kock who is engaged with his national team against Pakistan in a three-match ODI series.
With Ishan Kishan in the side, Rohit Sharma would hand over the wicket-keeping duties to the youngster and might add Chris Lynn in place of him.
However, they have a strong line-up with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya.
Their bowling department is also strong as well as they have the nations best bowlers named Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult. RCB on the other side has the likes of their skipper Virat Kohli and the in-form Devdutt Padikal on the note.
Their batting also looks strong as they have AB de Villiers and the new entrant Glenn Maxwell and Mohammed Azharuddeen in the side. They always struggle with their bowling department that failed on many occasions and results in losing the game.
Coming to the point, the Star Sports network has released a teaser on their official Youtube channel of Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore ahead of the IPL 2021. Fans are enjoying the teaser and started sharing it on social media platforms.

Rohit's men vs Virat's men:
According to the head to head records, Mumbai Indians often dominated the Royal Challengers Bangalore on many occasions whenever they face.
Both the teams have faced each other 29 times as Mumbai won 19 out of them whereas Bangalore won only 10 games. Virat Kohli always had the issue of lack of bowling in his side as they leak a lot of runs in the game.
But this time they would be working hard on their weak areas and would come up with new strategies on the field. The Rohit's army will be looking to hit a hat-trick by winning the trophy in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.
