Mumbai Indians came up with a brilliant performance, chasing the target in just 15.3 overs for the loss of 3 wickets and won comprehensively by 7 wickets.

It was Rajat Patidar’s brilliant inning of 50 runs in 26 balls and Dinesh Karthik’s explosive inning of 53 not out in 23 balls that took the team to a competitive score.

Jasprit Bumrah was the standout bowler for Mumbai, picking up the fifer and effectively thwarting the RCB batsmen’s attempts to accelerate, supported by a disciplined bowling effort from the rest of the team.

The Mumbai Indians’ chase was nothing short of spectacular, showcasing the depth of their batting and aggressive intent right from the start. Ishan Kishan played a stormy innings of 69 runs in 34 balls, while Suryakumar Yadav returned to form and contributed a quickfire 52 runs in 19 balls.

Rohit Sharma also played an important inning of 38 runs in 24 balls. The team’s approach was resolute, ensuring that the required run rate was always within reach. There was a volley of boundaries to chase the target, with Mumbai Indians easily achieving the target with 27 balls to spare.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Captain Faf du Plessis: ”  It’s a tough pill to swallow to be honest. Combination of two things, the outfield was very wet with dew, I needed to somehow win some tossed

Mumbai Indians Captain Hardik Pandya: “Always good to win. The way we have won, it’s quite impressive. The impact player has allowed to use an extra bowler if we require it. It gives us a cushion as well. The way Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan batted gave us the platform, it was important for us to finish it early. That’s the beauty of this team, players know what to do. Blessed to have Bumrah on my side. Surya does it over and over again. He practices a lot and the amount of experience and confidence he has is tremendous. I did tell him when he scored the fifty that welcome back.”

Jasprit Bumrah: “  I am very happy with the outcome. But I will not say I had always thought of taking a five-for. The wicket was sticking in the first 10 overs. One of those days where things went in my favour and catches went to hand. In this format, it’s anyway very harsh on the bowlers so you need to have different skills. Can’t be a one-trick pony. Everyone is doing research and data. Have trained to have different skills. Bowling is tough because you will have to take a beating, you will have to have bad days to learn from it.”
