Follow RCB vs MI highlights below -
MI have stolen the match in stunning style after two unbelievable overs from Bumrah and then Malinga. But controversy at the end of the match as replays showed that Malinga’s foot was over the line and should have been called as a no-ball.
1st ball - Shivam Dube hits Lasith Malinga for a huge six down the ground. RCB now need 11 off 6 deliveries.
2nd ball - Dube top-edges a delivery but Bumrah drops the catch on the off side. The batsmen take a single as ABD is back on strike.
3rd ball - ABD takes a single and RCB now need 9 off 3 deliveries.

5th ball - A good yorker from Malinga and ABD can only take a single. RCB now need 7 off the last ball.
6th ball - Malinga bowls another good yorker as Dube hits the ball towards long on and MI win the match by 6 runs.
Third wicket for Bumrah
Jasprit Bumrah is doing the trick for MI as he picks his fourth wicket of the night. Colin de Grandhomme is caught out in the deep by Krunal Pandya. Hope for RCB as AB de Villiers is still out there in the middle. This Bumrah over could be the turning point of the match as he picks a wicket and concedes just 5 runs.
Four, six, six
Hardik Pandya is getting taste of his own medicine as AB De Villiers simply tears his bowling attack. ABD goes four, six and six in the 18th over to close the gap between balls and runs. Hardik concedes 18 runs from his over as RCB now need 22 off 12 deliveries.
ABD completes fifty
AB De Villiers completes his well-deserved half-century and he is leading RCB’s charge in this chase. ABD needs somebody to stay on the other end in order to get RCB over the line.
In trying to clear the fence, Shimron Hetmyer top edges a Jasprit Bumrah delivery to be caught by Hardik Pandya at mid-off. Bangalore have lost their fourth wicket but ABD is still out in the middle and he is now joined by Colin de Grandhomme.
Four, six, six
AB de Villiers is on the verge of completing his well-deserved half-century as he hits four six and six of Lasith Malinga. This over firmly puts RCB ahead in the match as they now need 41 off 24 deliveries. ABD needs one run to complete his half-century
Four and four
De Villiers takes the attack to Hardik Pandya now as he hits back to back boundaries off his bowling. De Villiers is anchoring the chase really well and he holds the cards for the home side after the loss of Virat Kohli.
Kohli falls after completing milestone
Virat Kohli completes 5000 IPL runs and he becomes only the second player in the history of the competition to achieve this feat after Suresh Raina. But right after doing so, Kohli loses his concentration and top-edges a Bumrah delivery which is expertly caught by Hardik Pandya at mid wicket. Kohli goes for 46 and RCB lose their third wicket.
Krunal completes his spell
Krunal Pandya’s four overs comes to an end and finishes with figures of 0/28. While he didn’t leak runs like the other MI bowlers have so far, his wicket column will disappoint him.
RCB cross 100
Lasith Malinga had bowled a good over until then but de Villiers ruins the over by hitting a huge six over backward square leg. RCB are motoring along in the chase with these two giants of the game.
Four and six
Virat Kohli hits a boundary on the first ball off Mayank Markande’s over down the ground and then takes a single to hand De Villiers the strike. The South African then shows his class and hits the spinner for a huge six down the ground. Markande concedes 13 runs off the over as Kohli and AB are getting a move on now.
Huge appeals on two occasions
Pressure is building on AB De Villiers as the fielders are trying to crowd him out. Krunal though he had produced an edge off his bat but umpire said not out declaring the ball had touched his foot. Then, a huge LBW appeal followed but the ball had impacted outside the off-stump.
Yuvi drops a sitter
Mayank Markande could have picked his second wicket of the night after he produced an edge off the bat AB de Villiers. But Yuvraj couldn’t react in time and the ball hit his leg and fell down on the ground. Early reprieve for the former South African skipper.
In trying to cut a delivery, Parthiv Patel is castled by Mayank Markande and he become the second RCB wicket to fall. AB de Villiers now joins Virat Kohli in the middle. The duo will look to continue the momentum now in the chase.
Parthiv joins the party now
Parthiv Patel seems to have had enough at the non-striker’s end and he shows his hitting prowess against Krunal Pandya. He started off by hitting the ball towards deep mid wicket for a boundary and then hits a huge six in the same region. RCB cross the 50-run mark in the 6th overs, same as MI.
Virat Kohli on fire!
Virat Kohli is simly on fire at the moment as he now takes the attack to Hardik Pandya and hits two sublime boundaries in his over. The first one he cut past the point fielder for a boundary and then charged down the ground and hit pas the cover fielder for his fifth boundary off the innings already.
Kohli in ominous form
Virat Kohli hits Jasprit Bumrah for three boundaries on the trot and he lays down the marker for MI in the match. The first one he hit on the up towards long-on and then the ball took an outside edge for a boundary. The third one was simply class from the RCB skipper as he caressed the ball past the two fielders on the off side for his third four of the innings.
Moeen Ali falls
In trying to take a quick singles, Moeen Ali is comprehensively run out by Rohit Sharma. Moeen was miles out of his crease when Rohit ran inside and effected a direct hit. RCB have lost their first wicket of the night as Moeen heads back for 13.
Four, four and six
McClenaghan is leaking runs at the moment as Parthiv Patel hits him for his second boundary of the innings. Moeen Ali then gets into the act and hits him for a four and six. After top edging the ball for a boundary, Moeen showed his class and flicked the ball off his pads for the first six of the innings. RCB are off to a good start in the chase courtesy of their openers.
Excellent start from Malinga
Lasith Malinga is on the money straightaway as he concedes just three runs from his first over of the night. MI are playing a stunning bowling attack in the match which comprises of McClenaghan, Malinga, Bumrah, Pandya Bros and Markande.
Boundary to begin proceedings
Moeen Ali took a risky single to open his account but Parthiv Patel was more adventurous as he flicked the ball towards vacant mid wicket region for the first boundary of the innings. Seven runs came from the first over from McClenaghan.
RCB chase underway
Mitchell McClenaghan has the new ball in his hand and he will bowl the first over of the chase. Parthiv Patel and Moeen Ali are opening the innings. Surprisingly, Virat Kohli hasn’t opened the innings and it could be the Jasprit Bumrah factor.
Rohit Sharma excellent start and Hardik Pandya’s stunning cameo ensured MI reach 187/8 in 20 overs. Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers for RCB as he ended with a four-wicket haul.
Hardik Pandya is ensuring MI finish the innings strong as he hits two huge sixes off Mohammed Siraj in the last over of the innings. 15 runs came from the last over as MI end innings as 187/8. Hardik Pandya remained not out for 32 off 14 deliveries.
Mohammed Siraj picks a wicket on the first ball of the last over as he gets rid of Mayank Markande for 6. Pandya thought there was no edge and went for the run to get at the striker’s end but the umpire adjudged him caught behind and Pandya has to stay at the non-striker’s end.
Hardik goes berserk
Hardik Pandya is now taking the attack to Navdeep Saini as he hits a boundary down the ground and then hits huge six over mid wicket. To make matters worse for RCB, Saini bowls a no-ball and Parthiv and Moeen collide in trying to take the catch. Hardik scoring crucial runs for MI.
MI cross 150
Mayank Markande and Hardik Pandya hit one boundary each off Siraj and with that Mumbai Indian have now crossed the 150-run mark in the 18th over. MI need more of such hitting to put up a respectable total on this batting paradise.
McClenaghan dismissed now
Mitchell McClenaghan is the seventh MI batsman to depart as he is castled by Mohammed Siraj for 1. RCB are finishing the innings strong as MI keep losing wickets at regular intervals. Virat Kohli seems a happy captain at t he moment.
Another one bites the dust
In trying to score a six, Krunal Pandya (1) is dismissed off the bowling of Umesh Yadav who picks his second wicket of the night. The real credit of the wicket goes to Navdeep Saini who took a brilliant jumping catch at square leg boundary. He timed his jump to perfection and replays showed that it was merely couple of inches between his leg and the ropes.
Fourth wicket for Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal picks his fourth wicket of the innings as he now picks the crucial wicket of Kieron Pollard (5) who is know to go big in the final few overs. Pollard hit the ball high in the air and Hetmyer took a good catch at third man. MI have lost their fifth wicket now.
Chahal strikes again
Yuzvendra Chahal may have proved to be expensive today but he has been among the wickets. The wily spinner now picks his third wicket of the innings as he Suryakumar (38) is the latest to depart. MI have lost their fourth wicket as two new batsmen are now at the crease.
Four and four
Suryakumar Yadav shows his class as he hits back to back boundaries off Colin de Grandhomme. He played the paddle sweep for the first boundary and then hit the ball over the keeper’s head for the second boundary of the over. MI need more of such over to get near the 200-run mark.
Yuvraj Singh falls
In trying to go for the fourth six in as many deliveries, Yuvraj Singh is caught out at the long off boundary by Mohammed Siraj. Yuzvendra Chahal picks his second wicket of the night and it came after a good jumping catch by Siraj. Yuvi goes back for 23 off 12 deliveries. Chahal concedes 20 runs off his over.
Three sixes in a row
Yuvraj Singh turns back the clock in stunning style as he hits three consecutive sixes off the bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal. The first one went over mid wicket ropes, the second one went down the ground. The third six went over the long-on ropes.
Six and 100
Suryakumar Yadav hits a huge six off the bowling of Moeel Ali over long on and with that MI have crossed the 100-run mark. Yadav then hit a boundary the next ball as well as MI look to up the ante after a slow last few overs.
Time for Yuvi special?
Yuvraj Singh is out in the middle and he will look to build a partnership with already set Surya Kumar Yadav. Yuvi slammed a quick-fire half-century in MI’s opener and they need another such innings tonight.
Rohit Sharma departs
Umesh Yadav drops the ball short and Rohit Sharma goes for the expansive pull but ends up top-edging it. Mohammed Siraj takes a good high catch after coming inside from long-on. Mumbai have lost their second wicket as Rohit departs for 48 off 33.
Rohit shows his class
de Grandhomme bowls a bit full and Rohit gets down on one knee and sweeps the ball for a boundary towards square leg. The MI skipper is approaching his well deserved half-century and he is leading his team’s charge in the innings.
Expensive over from Chahal
After the high of his last over, Chahal gives away runs in his second over of the night. The first ball went for four byes while Rohit swept the fifth delivery for a boundary towards backward square leg.
Good over from CDG
Colin de Grandhomme starts off in a fine fashion as he gives away just four runs in his first over of the night. RCB have pulled this back in good style after MI openers blazed away to 50 runs in the first six overs.
Quinton de Kock tried to go for the reverse sweep but missed the line of the delivery and the ball hits the stumps after taking a slight edge off the bat. Timely wicket for RCB as Rohit and de Kock were on rampage. This is Chahal’s 50th scalp at the Chinnaswamy stadium.
Dropped and boundary
Navdeep Saini pitched the ball up and de Kock hit the ball on the leg side and Colin de Grandhomme dropped an easy catch at mid wicket. To add insult to injury the ball goes for a boundary as well. Then, on the last ball of the over, Rohit hit the ball towards extra cover for a boundary and with that, MI have crossed the 50-run mark in just 6 overs.
Six and four
Another expensive over for RCB as Mohammed Siraj concedes 11 runs from his first over of the night. On the third ball of the over, de Kock hit the ball over the long-on fence for a huge six. Then, on the last ball of the over, Rohit hit a pitched up delivery down the ground for a boundary.
First six of the innings
Umesh Yadav now bowls short to Rohit Sharma and the right-hander hits the ball on the up for a huge six over mid wicket ropes. First six of the innings for both Rohit and Mumbai Indians as they are scoring at a rapid pace. Seven runs came from that over from Umesh.
de Kock gets into the act
Umesh Yadav drops the ball a bit short and Quinton de Kock gets into position early and slogs the ball towards deep mid wicket for his first boundary of the day. The two batsmen are looking in good nick and these are not good signs for the home side.
Edge but four
Excellent delivery from Navdeep Saini but the ball takes an inside edge and goes just the stumps for a boundary behind the keeper. Then, on the last ball of the over, Rohit plays his trademark cover drive and gets his fourth boundary of the innings. Mumbai Indians are off to a brisk start as they score nine runs from each of the first two overs.
Four and four
Rohit Sharma has given Mumbai Indians a flying start as he hits two boundaries in the first over from Umesh Yadav. On both the occasions, Umesh bowled on to the pads of Rohit and the right handers flicked the deliveries for boundaries.
Match about to begin
The players are making their way into the middle and we are about to get underway with the Match 7 of the IPL. Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock will open the innings for MI while Umesh Yadav has the new ball in his hand.

As for Mumbai, Lasith Malinga returns for them while Jasprit Bumrah too has been included in the line-up after suffering an injury scare in the first game.
Manish: RCB’s likely XI
Virat Kohli, Parthiv Patel, Moeen Ali, AB De Villiers, Shimron Hetmyer, Shivam Dube, Colin de Grandhomme, Washington Sundar, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammad Siraj. Here are the reasons for this team.
Pratik: MI’s predicted XI
Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rasikh Salam, Mayank Markande, Lasith Malinga - and here are my reasons for it
Manish: Kohli against MI
Over the years, Virat Kohli has done well against MI and has got 4th most runs against the three-time champions in IPL after Raina (787), Dhawan (629) and Dhoni (612). An added incentive for the skipper will be that he is 46 runs away from completing 5000 runs in the tournament and can become the 2nd batsman to reach this landmark after Raina.
Pratik: MI’s record vs RCB
Mumbai Indians have won 14 out of their 23 matches against RCB in the IPL.Their win rate of 60.87% is their 2nd best against existing IPL teams. MI have also won 4 out their last 5 encounters against RCB, while they have won 3 out of their last 5 encounters versus RCB in Bengaluru.
RCB may not have won title under Virat Kohli but that doesn’t mean he is any lesser than Rohit. Kohli’s personal form has been outstanding over the years in the IPL as his batting records suggest. Most runs in one single season, most centuries in one season, second-highest run-scorer in the history of the IPL. These are just some of the feathers that are present in the illustrious cap of the India skipper.
Pratik: Captain Marvel
Let’s start with Rohit Sharma, MI’s very on captain marvel. He has led them to three IPL titles and is the most successful captain in the history of the tournament along side MS Dhoni. If he gets into the groove, there are not many batsmen in the world who match his stroke-making.
