MI vs RCB: Live Score and Update
MI vs RCB: MI jump for 8th to 3rd!
Another convincing chase by Mumbai Indians. They have chased 200 three times this season, and the margin just getting better and better. This one has came with 21 balls spare!.. 7th 200+ successful chase in the season! Suryakumar Yadav played a commanding innings and ensured that MI are in a comfortable positions to win this game! RCB just never arrived with the ball. MI have thrashed RCB to reach the third spot!
MI vs RCB: MI looking for a massive win!
75 runs from the last five overs! The partnership has launched a brutal assault against the RCB bowlers. Suryakumar Yadav has scored 50 runs off his last 17 balls. He has smashed bowlers to all parts. Hasaranga picked up the openers in the powerplay, but has ended with grisly figures of 2 for 53 here tonight. The required rate is below 6 RPO now! MI are 174/2 after 15 overs. They need 26 runs from 30 balls.
MI vs RCB: MI are coasting!
A brilliant partnership between Nehal Wadhera and Suryakumar Yadav building here. Mumbai Indians are well on track to chase this down. RCB need wickets and quickly. MI are 99/2 after 10 overs. They need 101 runs from 60 balls. The rate needed might be at 10 per over but Green, David and Jordan to follow. That’s a lot of batting!!!
MI vs RCB: MI off to a flying start!
Ishan Kishan gave Mumbai Indians a flying start going after the RCB new-ball pacers. Wainindu Hasaranga pulled things back by dismissing Kishan and Rohit Sharma in a span of three deliveries. Kishan tried to slap it through the covers and caught a thick edge, whereas Rohit was trapped in-front! The platform is set for the chase! The req-rate maybe around 10 but MI have a mean batting line-up to follow! MI are 62/2 after 6 overs. They need 138 runs from 60 balls.
MI vs RCB: RCB finish just under 200!
Mumbai Indians have pulled this back very well! 200 was well on cards, but RCB have ended with 199/6 after their 20 overs. They would believe they have fallen 10-15 runs short here. Faf and Maxi lead the charge for RCB once again tonking the ball around the Wankhede. The 120-run stand put RCB in a strong position, but the middle order failed to follow-up!
The target for Mumbai Indians is 200 runs from 120 balls. It is a batting beauty at Wankhede, and MI have a very dangerous batting line-up. Remember they have chased 200 in their last two wins! Will they do it the third time? .. or will RCB defend this?.. A interesting second-half coming-up!
MI vs RCB: MI hit back!
RCB have slipped from 131/2 to 152/5 in the last 3 overs. Maxwell’s wicket has triggered a collapse. Good captaincy by Rohit Sharma, brought in Behrendorff and got wicket immediately! Both the set batters are gone. Kedar Jadhav walks in as a impact player replacing Mahipal Lomror. He is at the crease with Dinesh Karthik! Can this veteran duo take RCB past 200?.. RCB are 152/5 after 15 overs.
MI vs RCB: Faf-Maxi Onslaught at Wankhede!
RCB absolutely bossing this at the halfway mark. Maxwell has reached his 4th fifty of the season. They were 20/2 at the end of 3 overs, now are 104/2 after 10 overs. A dangerous partnership building for RCB. MI need wickets quickly!
MI vs RCB: Faf-Maxi at rescue!
A good partnership building between Maxwell and Faf du Plessis after the loss of two early wickets. They did this against CSK, they did it against RR and now they are doing it again against MI! Faf is on the charge and looks set to get another good score under his belt. He has been RCB’s guiding light this season and is having a blast of a season! RCB are 56/2 after 6 overs.
Mumbai Strike early!
Jason Behrendorff has struck early for Mumbai Indians! First he got Virat Kohli in the first over. Virat charged down but only got a faint edge and found Kishan’s gloves. Then Anuj Rawat played a strange shot! He was walking across to play the scoop shot towards the on-side, but Behrendorff follows him outside off. Anuj Rawat opens the bat face late, tries to improvise, but ends up playing a completely awkward shot. Green catches the skier and RCB lose 2 wickets inside 3 overs. It’s Faf-Maxi duo to do a rescue ace for them once again! RCB 20/2 after 3 overs.
