It’s Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma. Two different kinds of captains and leaders. One whose body language bristles with aggression. The other who is more laid-back but street smart.
In other words, a gun-slinger versus a smooth operator. The IPL lung opener between defending champion Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore could prove intriguing.
The surface for the day/night game at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium on Friday should provide good carry in the first half but could assist the spinners later on. Dew could be a big factor.
TOSS UPDATE: Virat Kohli wins the toss. RCB to bowl first.
