Today, Mumbai Indians will clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Both Mumbai and Bangalore started off their IPL campaign with defeats, so it will be a chance for them to make amends.

Quinton de Kock, who represented RCB last year and is in Mumbai’s side this year, revealed the one threat that his side would need to conquer if they want to win the tie against the Kohli-led RCB.

“AB being AB, he is a big wicket for them. I think if we get him out pretty early, we stand a good chance of doing well in the game. So we have spoken about it — about how we’re going to try and get him out and hopefully it comes off tomorrow,” Quinton de Kock told reporters on the eve of the match.

“Otherwise, we just hope he (de Villiers) makes a mistake,” he added.

Mumbai are known to be slow starters and they will need to get into their groove quickly. “Any big tournament around the world, everybody wants to get off to a good start. Coming into this game, knowing we haven’t won a game, so it’s a big game for us tomorrow. We need to get going with a win and hopefully build some momentum, get things rolling for our campaign this year,” he said.
