Royal Challengers Bangalore (164/6)

Josh Philippe (33/24): Rahul Chahar to Josh Philippe, OUT! STUMPED! Josh’s foot is in the air and he is a goner! That was really quick from de Kock because he just had a second. Excellent! A good little innings from Philippe comes to an end but he could not continue. Chahar strikes back and it is a much needed wicket for him. Philippe makes room but Chahar shortens his length just a little. It lands on middle, there is extra bounce and it also turns a little. Josh looks to go over covers but misses. De Kock takes the bails off and there is a muted appeal. The umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that Josh needs to start walking back. Mumbai now have a chance to pull things back a little.

Devdutt Padikkal (74/45): Jasprit Bumrah to Devdutt Padikkal, OUT! CAUGHT! Bumrah is once again becoming a thorn in Bangalore’s throat. The well-set Padikkal departs as well. Excellent from Bumrah. He bangs a shortish ball around the body. Padikkal looks to flick it over fine leg but he does not get as much pace as he anticipated. He ends up flicking it to the left of fine leg. Trent Boult there moves to that side and takes a simple catch. End of a fantastic innings from Padikkal but he departs at the wrong time as his side are losing wickets in clusters now.

Virat Kohli (9/14): Jasprit Bumrah to Virat Kohli, OUT! TAKEN! That is the exact reason why Bumrah was got back on. Brilliant from Pollard and brilliant from Bumrah. His 100th Indian T20 League wicket and it is a special one. This though is not for the first time he has bounced Kohli out. It is short and on middle, gets big on Kohli. He tries to pull but gets a top edge. It goes high towards mid on. Tiwary from mid-wicket runs towards the ball and takes a good tumbling catch. Kohli’s struggle comes to an end.

AB de Villiers (15/12): Kieron Pollard to AB de Villiers, OUT! CAUGHT! The skipper gets the big fish himself. Big moment in this game as everyone knows how dangerous AB de Villiers is in the back end of the innings. A dipping full toss around off, De Villiers bends his back and looks to heave it over mid-wicket. Unfortunately for Bangalore, AB cannot get under it. He hits it in the air and straight to the man at deep mid-wicket. Rahul Chahar there makes no mistake and takes a simple catch. The two umpires get together and send it upstairs to check the legitamacy of the height. The replay shows it is not an issue and de Villiers has to continue his walk back to the dug out.

Shivam Dube (2/6): Jasprit Bumrah to Shivam Dube, OUT! CAUGHT! Another one bites the dust for Bangalore and Mumbai are pulling things back very nicely here. Bouncer from Bumrah! It is on middle, Dube looks to pull. He does so and gets a lot of height. The distance is missing though and it goes straight into the hands of Suryakumar Yadav in the deep. He takes a good catch. Second wicket for Bumrah. 

Chris Morris (4/2): Trent Boult to Chris Morris, OUT! TAKEN! Another one bites the dust and Bangalore have completely lost their way! Now even 160 looks farfetched. Boult gets his revenge. It is short and outside off. Morris uper cuts but it goes straight into the hands of the third man fielder. Pattinson makes no mistake.

Gurkeerat Singh Mann* (14/11) and Washington Sundar* (10/6): Trent Boult to Gurkeerat Singh Mann, No, he can’t! A couple to end! Mann looks to move right across and play it in the square leg region where both the fielders are in the ring. It is a little too full and hence, it goes off the toe-end towards deep mid-wicket for two. A good last over for Bangalore. THEY END WITH 164!

Mumbai Indians (166/5)

Quinton de Kock (18/19): Mohammed Siraj to Quinton de Kock, OUT! De Kock holes out! Siraj gets the breakthrough Bangalore needed. It is slightly short and on middle, angling away. De Kock looks to pull it, he tries to play the shot he has done so successfully but this comes off the bottom. It goes straight to the man at deep mid-wicket who makes no mistake. Mann is the catcher.

Ishan Kishan (25/19): Yuzvendra Chahal to Ishan Kishan, OUT! Chahal comes on and strikes! Kishan, the well-set batter is out of here and Mumbai are in a spot of bother! Kishan steps out and Chahal bowls it nice and wide outside off. Kishan has to reach out for it. He looks to do so and tries to go over long off but it goes off the toe-end. Morris runs to his right from long on and takes it.

Saurabh Tiwary (5/8): Mohammed Siraj to Saurabh Tiwary, OUT! CAUGHT! Super catch from Padikkal and Siraj has his second. What a game Padikkal is having. First with the bat and now a diving stunner in the field. Bangalore have their tail up and why wouldn’t they. They have continued to get wickets at regular intervals. Fuller on off, Tiwary looks to drive it through mid off but he ends up hitting it uppishly towards mid off. It looked like the ball will fall short of Padikkal there but he dives in front and takes it inches above the turf. 93 needed in 56.

Krunal Pandya (10/10): Yuzvendra Chahal to Krunal Pandya, OUT! CAUGHT! Krunal Pandya holes out! Another classic Chahal wicket. A nicely looped up delivery around off from Chahal. Krunal looks to go downtown but he is decieved in the air and by the lack of pace in it. He mistimes his shot and ends up hitting it straight to Chris Morris at long off. The big South frican makes no mistake. Kohli screams in joy as he knows this game is there to be won and the skipper is pumped up. 58 needed in 37! Game on!

Hardik Pandya (17/15): Chris Morris to Hardik Pandya, OUT! TAKEN! Morris now has a go at Hardik. He gets his revenge. Still though, Hardik has probably done his job. This partnership surely has. It is a full delivery again but this is outside off. Pandya looks to go over covers but fails to get under it. He does not get the elevation he wanted and Siraj takes a good catch diving to his right.

Suryakumar Yadav* (79/43) and Kieron Pollard* (4/1): Mohammed Siraj to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR! Up and over! No miracle from Siraj as Yadav just needed the one ball to finish things off. A classy drive. It is full and outside off. Yadav lofts it over covers for a boundary. MUMBAI WIN BY 5 WICKETS!
