Aakash Chopra has predicted that the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) would defeat the Mumbai Indians (MI) in their WPL 2023 match on Monday,
March 6 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. RCB enter their second game of the tournament on the heels of a 60-run loss to Delhi Caps at the same stadium the previous day.
On the other side, MI defeated the Gujarat Giants by 143 runs in the WPL 2023 season opening on Saturday.
In a YouTube video previewing Monday's match, Chopra predicted that Smriti Mandhana and her teammates will shock Harmanpreet Kaur's team, stating:
Bangalore has arrived after losing their first match. The game will be played in Brabourne, where RCB has previously played but Mumbai has not.
If you conduct woman-to-woman marking, you will notice that the scales are tipped in Mumbai's favor, but I am siding with RCB.
I don't trust the hype, since I feel the pitches were normal Indian wickets despite all the hoopla around them.
