ICYMI - India's squad for 2019 World Cup was announced. And Australia's as well.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the IPL 2019 game between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The last time these two sides met, Kohli delivered, AB de Villiers delivered and yet Jasprit Bumrah helped MI squeeze in a win. Today it is again going to be a contest between these three.

RCB have registered their first win after six straight losses. There are problems still, especially in the bowling department but maybe now, with the confidence of a win, they can operate with a little more freedom, deliver some of their plans "without fear" as their skipper had been asking of them a few games ago, as they also managed briefly in they previous game.

Rohit Sharma's men have blown hot and cold through IPL 2019. They've now had a couple of close finishes at home, which has seen them end on the right and wrong sides of the result. They need their captain to fire and produce a big knock.
