IPL 2021 Highlights, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Mumbai Indians (MI): Harshal Patel had another night to remember! In chase of 166, MI were given an electric start by openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock, as the duo brought up their 50-run stand in quick time to take the side to 56/0 at the end of the Powerplay. But their joy was short-lived as Yuzvendra Chahal removed de Kock(24) and Ishan Kishan (9). On the other hand, Maxwell got the crucial wickets of Sharma (43) and Krunal Pandya (5) to finish with figures 2/23 in 4 overs. Mohammed Siraj bagged Surykumar Yadav's (8) wicket to leave MI 5 down. Harshal then picked up four ofthe remaining five wickets, including a hat-trick to guide RCB to a convincing win. The Royal Challengers Bangalore set Mumbai Indians a target of 166 in 120 overs. It all began with Jasprit Bumrah dismissing Devdutt Padikkal for a duck. In the previous over, Virat Kohli was dropped on 0 and he made them pay by scoring a second consecutive 50. Moreover, he became the first Indian to cross 10,000 runs in T20 cricket. Overall, he's the fifth batter. He put on 68 runs with KS Bharat (32) for the second. The onslaught was carried forward by the 51-run stand between Glenn Maxwell and Kohli. Eventually, Kohli fell for 51 before Maxwell got to his fifty. With AB de Villiers, he took RCB past 150 before being dismissed on 56 by Bumrah. The MI pacer struck again in the next delivery, dismissing ABD on 11. Eventually, RCB posted 166/6 in 20 overs.

    "We haven't started well in the second leg. We haven't played the brand of cricket that we are known to have played in the first half and we are desperate to correct that today. I had a couple of wicketless games and I knew at the start of the tournament that you can't keep picking wickets every game, but I'm doing things that I want to do on the field and my execution is almost there and that's what I'm backing now. That (first game this season vs MI) game gave me a lot of confidence to perform the way I did in the first half. In terms of execution also it gave me a lot of confidence and I'm taking that confidence into this game:

    "It's a big game and it would be nice if we get a win tonight. It will be a strong contest today and hopefully, we will be the ones that come out on top. Our guys know what to do exactly, so when they get out there, it's just going back to what they've done in the past and just try to get the job done. I know it's difficult but they have come back before and I'm sure they will do it, at least starting today. I live in the water, I do it every day and night (fishing), and not too worried about cricket (during quarantine) it's been great. But, since now back into cricket have to worry about this now"

    IPL 2021 RCB vs MI Live: Pitch Report

    "The outfield is quite superb here. It's a fresh pitch for today's game. It's a very hard and compact surface and there is a nice grass coverage. It looks as though the ball will come on nicely and the spinners are gonna have to work really hard as I don't know how much purchase the slower men can get out of this surface. The faster men are the key on this surface."
