IPL 2019 | De Villiers vs Krunal in Focus as Bangalore Host Mumbai

And so, the focus of 22 yards will again be fixed for Royal Challengers Bangalore's first home in the IPL 2019. RCB Chennai out of Chennai was out for just 70 runs against Chennai Super Kings.

Yes, AB de Villiers cheekily was impressive at the press conference before the Mumbai Indians match, saying the wicket was 'turning two meters'. Yes, there were mostly spinners in Chennai. But Bangalore can also blame themselves. They got the chance to bat first and it was wasted by selecting poor shots.
There were more than 120 targets for Bangalore, they might have ended more. Chennai was bowled out for 71 runs in their 17 overs. Virat Kohli catches out Mid-wicket De Villiers had also lost the same way, after being dropped deeply, he played a ball slogan-swipe. Sublime dive slashed at a wide ball and edged to slip.
De Villiers said: "To play a good game in the next match, we need to rely on our batsmen, to evaluate the good conditions. We have got any wickets we have to play better than our last game."
But the good news is, RCB batsmen have the freedom to play all these shots and start on Thursday (March 28th). De Villiers hoped to be a 'good wicket', and he is likely to get it right.

Pitch was batting in the M. Chinnaswamy stadium last season. It may sound like the most obvious things to say, but things a year ago were very different. In the 2013 IPL, a team in Bangalore scored 161 runs. Only one of 150 cricketers in the team. The pitch for the Test match against Australia was determined by the average 'average below average' by the ICC.

It was almost impossible due to the small size of the field, but it showed how tough the batsmen had wickets. The pitch was recovered during the season, and things changed dramatically. Spinners roam; Yuzvendra Chahal, Samuel Badree and Pavan Negi shared 39 wickets in this season.
That changed last year. The minimum team score is 153. There were five examples of posting more than 200 teams. In short, the old Bangalore is back. Spinners fight! There was only 12 wickets in the season - his worst after the specialty was achieved. On the other hand, Umesh Yadav has taken 20 wickets.
Although the batsmen have the possibility of enjoying themselves again, the IPL is expected to continue. The last international match at the stadium last month was the second Twenty20 between India and Australia when India was easily behind Australia for 190 runs in 7 wickets, Glenn Maxwell scored a ton.

Subplot: Krunal Pandya vs AB de Villiers

One of the battles to watch out for on Thursday will be Krunal bowling to de Villiers. At the pre-match press conference, Mumbai's Quinton de Kock said they have a plan to dismiss de Villiers early, hoping it works. It's not hard to guess what that could be - Krunal has had de Villiers four in four times they've faced each other. De Villiers has a good record against Mumbai, and even has a century against them, but has only managed 33 runs off 32 balls against Krunal.
