How, where and when to watch Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Bangalore live match at 7.30 PM IST on April 9, 2021
Barely five months since he lifted the last IPL trophy, Rohit Sharma will head out defending it with the opening match of the 2021 season featuring the Mumbai Indians against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Mumbai have power-hitters in Kieron Pollard, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav, experienced bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, and allrounders in Hardik and Krunal Pandya, and it will be interesting to see how they go about their title defence this time around.
Virat Kohli, on the other hand, has been boosted by the inclusion of Glenn Maxwell, which means some of the load will be off him and AB de Villiers. Aside from that, an in-form Dan Christian lends balance to the side and adds depth in the batting order. Kyle Jamieson also brings form and a new-ball option, as Kohli will be keen for the Royal Challengers to rectify the wrongs of the previous seasons and aim for their first title.
