The second match of the IPL 2021 game ensures to be a cracker. We’ve seen quite a few thrillers in matches between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the past. Positively, we will see more witnesses tonight.

Rohit Sharma and his men have missed both games they’ve performed in the 2nd leg so far. Similarly is the case with Kohli and his lads in red. With RCB vs MI have both these teams looking to begin their accounts in this 2nd half of IPL 2021, match 39 is definitely going to further end the weekend on an action-packed note.

However, CSK and KKR, the ones Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore both lost to interestingly, battle it out in today’s opening game, let’s take a look at some key records that can be broken in the match later tonight.

#1 Rohit is Three sixes aways from hitting 400 T20 supremacies


The Hitman is assuredly the very successful skipper for the Indians. But you should know about the fact that he is also the highest run-getter for the team with over 4,300 runs to his name when his time in Mumbai?

Overall, Sharma has managed 5,513 runs in his 200+ match-long IPL session, going behind the 5500-run mark in MI’s early match against KKR, making him only be the 3rd ever player to do so.

Nevertheless, in today’s match versus RCB, if Hitman manages to hit 3-balls out of the park, he will have 400 sixes beneath his belt in all of T20 cricket. Crossing this position would make him the first Indian and the 7th player, overall, to make it.

#2 Q#2 Quinton de Kock is 26 runs difference between 7000 T20 runs

Quinton de Kock has not just have been an amazing wicket-keeper except also a masterpiece of an opener for the Indians. In the year 2020, the wicketkeeper-batsman led to scoring 503 runs including 4-half-centuries. His knowledge with fellow opener and captain Rohit Sharma was much praised, and he became one of the key reasons that MI achieved win the trophy last year.

Now, if the South African batter takes 26 more runs, he will make it through the 7000-run mark in the T20s. A milestone is clearly worth marking out for.

#3 Virat Kohli is 13 runs short between 10,000 T20 runs

Indian captain Virat Kohli had a big day with the bat in their game against CSK, even if the result didn’t go in their support. He secured 53(41), but greatly it got acquired him closer to an important milestone in international cricket.

Kohli is now just 13 runs diffident from getting 10,000 T20 runs under his belt and if he gets through this personal milestone now against Mumbai, he will become the first Indian and the 5th overall batsman to do so.

#4 Mohammed Siraj requires 5 scalps to pick 50 IPL wickets

Hyderabad’s fast bowler Mohammed Siraj was acquired ahead of IPL 2018 by RCB. Believing in his ability to pick up quick wickets and be the death bowler they so urgently need, RCB’s control decided to give him the chance to play for their side.

And he hasn’t let them disappoint since. The 44 IPL shows that he has made since Mohammed Siraj has taken up 45 wickets at an average of about 29 and an economy of 8.7. In tonight’s game against Mumbai Indians(MI), if Siraj acquires a 5-for he will have entered the 50-wicket club in the IPL.
