MI made a horrific start, losing Suryakumar Yadav (0) and Ishan Kishan (0) off the first two balls from Umesh Yadav (2/36) and rallied to 60 for two after six overs. Both were clean bowled by Umesh. Mumbai Indians made a grand recovery from a shock start through sparkling half-centuries from captain Rohit and Lewis. Left-handed Trinidadian Lewis struck 5 sixes and 6 fours in his 42-ball 55. After his dismissal Rohit, who flopped in the first three games, took over the lead role to hammer 94 in 52 balls before departing off the penultimate ball, caught at long on. He smashed 5 sixes and ten fours.
Put into bat, Mumbai recovered from a shock start of 0 for 2 to post 213 for 6, their highest score of the season, mainly through the splendid batting of Rohit (94 in 52 balls) and opener Evin Lewis (65 in 42 balls). It was MI's first score in excess of 200 in four games this season.
MI were rallied superbly by skipper Rohit and Lewis who put on 108 runs in 66 balls for the third wicket. Lewis was out in the 12th over after which the home team skipper took over and stayed almost till the end. He was out to Corey Anderson. All the RCB bowlers went for runs, including Umesh in his second spell. Spinners Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal were particularly expensive.
RCB captain Virat Kohli's typically aggressive 62-ball 92 not out was the lone bright spot in the visitors' run-chase of 214 as they lost their way after a promising start. Kohli, who opened the RCB innings, slammed 4 sixes and 7 fours in his unbeaten knock but none of his batting colleagues gave him support. The next best was that of the other opener Quinton de Kock who made 19 from 12 balls.
Today's defeat at the Wankhede Stadium was also RCB's third in four games this season. Then, the Mumbai bowlers led by left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya (3/28) stopped RCB at 167 for 8 in 20 overs to notch up their first win in their fourth match of the season.
