The first match of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be played between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore at M Chidambaram Cricket Stadium in Chennai on Friday (April 9). With the arrival of players such as Glenn Maxwell and Kyle Jamison, RCB’s team is very strong. At the same time, Mumbai, led by Rohit Sharma, has an amazing combination of experienced and explosive players. In such a situation, competition between the two teams can be seen in the first match. Meanwhile, former Indian batsman and commentator Akash Chopra has scored the outcome of the first match of the tournament.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Akash Chopra said he hoped Rohit Sharma’s squad would cover Virat Kohli’s army in the first game. Former Indian cricketer predicts that Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit together will score more than Virat and Maxwell. Taking note of M Chidambaram’s pitch, Akash said spin bowlers take more wickets than fast bowlers in the first match of the tournament. “The opener of both teams will play strong innings in this game,” Akash said.

Former opener James Neesham, Trent Boult, Adam Milne and Kieran Pollard are four foreign players in Mumbai. He named Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers and Don Christian as RCB’s four overseas players. For RCB’s fourth overseas player, he suggested selecting Kane Richardson and Kyle Jamison. Akash said Glenn Maxwell should bat in fourth or fifth position. In the absence of Devadatta Padikkal, RCB’s Rajat Patidar or Washington Sundar should come down with the captain Kohli, he said.
