Yuzwendra Chahal made a splendid performance by picking 4/38 against Mumbai Indians and breached its middle order. His efforts went useless since Jasprit Bumrah made a counter to his performance by picking crucial wickets from two overs by conceding just 5 runs including the RCB captain Virat Kohli yesterday at Chinnaswamy stadium.
RCB managed to slam 181/5 during the death overs but a controversial decision by the umpire during the last over turned the result of the game to Mumbai’s side. Earlier, Yuvraj Singh slammed a decent cameo and supported Surya Kumar Yadav through the openers lost the wickets very early.
Virat Kohli slammed 46 runs and reached the milestone of 5000 IPL runs after Suresh Raina who crossed this benchmark in this season. Kohli slammed Jasprit Bumrah by three boundaries in his first over but in the next 10 balls he faced, he could not slam a four. He slammed 46 runs off 32 balls with four boundaries. He made a strong stand with Parthiv Patel and the duo amassed 60 runs before Powerplays to answer a score of 187 runs posted by Mumbai Indians.
By the dismissal of Virat Kohli, the team fell into trouble and needed 72 runs off 28 balls. On the other hand, AB De Villiers added 70 runs off 41 balls with 4 boundaries and 6 sixes. De Villiers slammed Lasith Malinga with 20 overs from a single over and in 18th over, Bumrah was thrashed by De Villiers for 18 runs. In the last over, the team needed 17 runs from last over and De Villiers slammed Malinga with a six from the first ball. Later, Malinga took the match into control and handed Mumbai Indians a victory by 6 runs.
In the first innings, Yuzwendra Chahal was slammed by Yuvraj Singh by three sixes from a single over and he conceded 20 runs from his first over. The openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock added 48 runs and 23 runs to the opening stand and provided a solid platform for Mumbai Indians. They succeeded to add 53 runs from the Power Play. Rohit Sharma added two consecutive boundaries in the single over of Umesh Yadav and later he added two boundaries in the spell of Navdeep Saini. Rohit Sharma added 8 fours and one six in his innings.
Surya Kumar Yadav added 38 runs though Chahal succeeded to pick Yuvraj Singh. Later, he fell to Chahal in his quest to hand a decent score for the team. Royal Challengers came with the same squad as the first game whereas Mumbai Indians called back Lasith Malinga and benched Ben Cutting and Rasikh Khan.
