Mumbai Indians defeat Royal Challengers







Pin It



Mumbai Indians defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by five wickets in their Indian Premier League match.

Put into bat, RCB, managed to reach a competitive 171 for six, thanks to a late surge by local lad Mayank Agarwal (64 n.o., 30b, 4×6, 6×4) and Tillakaratne Dilshan’s patient innings (47, 50b, 4×4, 1×6). Mumbai, who were tottering at 51 for five at one stage, scaled down the target in the last over of the match with five wickets to spare.

With this win Mumbai are on second with 18 points from 14 matches, while RCB are fifth with 15 points from 14 games. The Bangalore outfit have left with two away matches against Delhi Daredevils and Deccan Chargers.

The victory was inspired by an unbeaten 122-run stand between man of the match Rayudu (81 n.o., 54b, 6×4, 4×6) and West Indian Pollard (52 n.o., 31b, 5×4, 3×6). The sixth-wicket collaboration came into existence in the eighth over with the Indians needing 120 runs off 72 balls to win.

There on, they sent RCB’s wayward bowlers, barring Muttiah Muralitharan and Harshal Patel, on a leather hunt and finished the game in style. Few words were exchanged between Harshal and Rayudu after the game, and the two players might come under the scanner from the match officials.
