Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Mumbai Indians today at Bengaluru. AB de Villiers is going to be crucial for the team. He has made four half-centuries in last five IPL innings at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. And he is all set to take on Mumbai. AB has made light of India’s premier bowler, Jasprit Bumrah. He is known for playing mind games and this might be another ploy for him before the game.
“Bumrah is a very good bowler but it’s also possible to get hold of him,” De Villiers said on the eve of the match. “It’s hard every single game but you look at the strengths and then you look at the weaknesses and realise no one is perfect. It’s easier on this ground with not so big boundaries. All the bowlers, no matter who you are, are under pressure here.”
“We’ve got a little bit of better balance this time around. More options as well. It’s an exciting cricket team. What I like is you still see old faces as well. It’s not a complete washout of a new team. Same faces but also bit more strength in the middle order. I think our balance is a lot better,” De Villiers added.
