it was hard to see mumbai indians dropping jayasuriya in the last match but let us hope that he will come back today. he will be hurting and so will the mumbai indians after a string of defeats. the first match between these two teams was one sided which was actually surprising since bangalore won it. but today i think mumbai indians will win it comfortably. who do you think will win?

RC Bangalore is one of my favorite team because it has two of my favorite players Rahul & Anil. I thought that Kevin and Robin's presence will encourage this team but it wasn't the case. I think Vijay Malya is not handling this team properly They don't have a good opening pair, Dale Styen isn't fit and no consistency with their feilding efforts. You must be very happy that Jayasurya is back and was able to meet victory for sachin's team!

I think it is also going to be one sided match I just have to watch which side the pendulum goes. Because both teams have to win this to be in the semis I think Chennai and Delhi are there in Semis we just have to find out which other teams are going to be in the semis. This match is the last hope for both the teams and I think they will take there best combinations to win this one.

The Mumbai Indians seem to be low on confidence. If they want to win this game they will have to get their batting together and batsmen will have to step up a gear.I was surprised to see Jayasuriya left out in the last game, but I sure theyll play him this time unless he is injured or something. Ronchi made a mess of the chance he was given in the previous game. I was expecting a lot more from him. I have seen him play in the Australian domestic circuit and he absolutely hammered the ball everywhere. I was somewhat cheering when he came out to bat, but that did not last long. Expecting better from him next time. As for Bangalore, they once again collapsed in the last match. Their batting seemed to be getting back on track in the past games, but they are back to what they are good at. Mumbai's bowling is strong, and Bangalore will have to bat very well if they want to compete. Players such as Rahul Dravid, Jaques Kallis, Anil Kumble, Mark Boucher, Robin Uthappa etc will have to really be up to the challenge. I cant really pick one clear winner, its a 20-20 after all. But I will go with the Royal Challengers. They will miss Nathan Bracken who is injured. Hopefully they find some inspiration from somewhere to perform. Lets hope it turns out into a good contest, and the game goes on right to the end.
