2. MI vs RCB
Arguably one of the most glamorous battles in the tournament given the kind of players these two teams flaunt. With AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Dale Steyn, and Lasith Malinga all in action in a single game of cricket, what more could one ask for! They might not have a renowned rivalry like a CSK or MI, but both the teams bring a lot on the table when pitted against each other.
From the days of being termed as a battle between Sachin Tendulkar-Sanath Jayasuriya’s opening pair against the calmness of Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble to the days of being termed as a battle of two of India’s finest modern-day stars Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, their competition has come a long way.
Although Mumbai has dominated the Challengers, the encounters between them have been the most entertaining ones. Out of 25 encounters so far, Mumbai Indians have won 16 and Royal Challengers have won 9.
