MI vs RCB: Match Overview
With the addition of young players like Cameron Green, Tim David, Dewald Brevis, Tristan Stubbs, and Tim David this season, the formidable Mumbai are undergoing a transition. Therefore, some kind of blip was anticipated, but their situation was made worse by the collective failure of the top players last season.
Although Jasprit Bumrah is expected to miss the entirety of the IPL 2023 due to a back injury, Rohit, who has an enviable record, will continue to captain MI and hope to return to top form. Jhye Richardson is additionally out.
Their pace bowling setup will be strengthened by Jofra Archer, but do they have an Indian fast bowler who can work with the English cricketer? Probably not, and as a result, the Australian left-hander Jason Behrendorff will be brought in, forcing MI to bench the hard-throwing Brevis and Stubbs.
MI coach Mark Boucher will hope for a lot more from his core players this season, in addition to hoping for a great debut from all-rounder Green, the second most costliest player in IPL history, to help the team solve the fast bowling conundrum. Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav were decent last season.
The return of the home-and-away format and the conveniences of the Wankhede Stadium are two additional things that can assist Mumbai. MI took home the trophy the previous time the league was played in its usual format.

The team's bowling lineup will be strengthened by in-form Mohammed Siraj, Sri Lankan leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who will take the most wickets for the team in IPL 2022, and Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood.
