While Royal Challengers Bangalore put up a much-better fight this time than their last few games, in the end, there was no stopping Rohit and Co as the are on the verge of becoming the first team to seal a spot in the playoffs. 
     
    We now move about 200 km from Mumbai to the neighbouring Pune, where the other Maharashtrian side take on Gujarat Lions in the second match of the 'Maharashtra Day' double-header. Stay tuned to the live updates on the match on our blog here. For now, it's a goodbye!

    Mumbai Indians now move to the top of the table courtesy their latest win, and are almost through to the playoffs now. 

  • The RCB players almost became statue-like as the winning runs were hit.  A fine cover drive by Rohit through extra cover and RCB woes continue unabated. It is playoffs ahoy for Mumbai as they climb to the top of the table. Sachin Tendulkar comes out with the MI contingent as the players shake hands. The crowd goes ' Saachin Saachin'. 

  • RCB fought hard on the field. Took the match to the last over, picking up crucial wickets along the way. But it was not enough. Their batting had not done justice to their talent and ability, though in the overall context of how RCB has been playing this season it was an improvement. The bowlers toiled hard. Even rookie Aniket Choudhary did a fair job. But the team that played better on the day won.Kudos to Rohit Sharma for a terrific innings and MI for the  win and progress to the next stage .

  • 7 runs off the last  overs. This should be mi's game now.  Rohit Sharma playing a captain's knock.  He fell just short of taking his side home against Pune. He would want to do better here. The good thing for MI,  he has Hardik for company. 'Jeetega bhai jeetega Mumbai jeetega' and ' Ganpati bappa morya' chants as MI inch closer.  Rohit has meanwhile reached gis fifty off 34 balls.

    Mumbai Indians need 65 to win from 42 balls. 

  • The crowd in the Divecha pavilion is going ga-ga over Kohli  as the RCB captain is fielding at long on near that stand. Pollard sends one in that direction. Kohli gives chase but fails to cut it off. Pollard is sonn sent back by Chahal.  That brings Krunal Pandya to the crease. 

  • Krunal Pandya has been shadow practising since a long time now. It looked like he won't bat after he injured himself while fielding. But now, he is ready to play. 

  • 18:56 (IST)

    OUT! And now it is Pollard who has to head back to the dugout, coming down the ground, and flicks the final ball of the over straight to Travis Head at the midwicket boundary! MI nervy at 98/4

    Pollard c Head b Chahal 17(13)

  • Kieron Pollard walked out to a huge reception from the Wankede. 'Apna Karan (Kieron)  aa gaya, ' says a voice in the crowd. 

  • Pawan Negi has bowled brilliantly in his two overs. Never really allowed the batsman to take control. He has just conceded eight runs and picked up two important wickets of Butler and Rana.

    Negi into his third over, and he has been fantastic so far! Rohit tries cutting the second ball, but can only get a single after the ball bounces over the keeper's head with an inside-edge. Couple of runs for Pollard thanks to a misfield by Chahal near backward square-leg. 


    Mumbai Indians need 73 to win from 48 balls.

  • 18:45 (IST)

    After 10 overs,Mumbai Indians 74/3 ( Rohit Sharma (C) 11 , Kieron Pollard 1)

    Rana c Head b Negi 27(28)

  • Rohit Sharma comes in at the fall of Buttler's wicket.  Rohit has not scored a lot of runs in the IPL this season so far, but just may be his day.  What the RCB bowlers have done is not let MI run away with the match .  Good and accurate bowling from Watson. Beats Rana outside off

  • 18:39 (IST)

    After 9 overs,Mumbai Indians 70/2 ( Nitish Rana 27 , Rohit Sharma (C) 8)

    Watson into his second over. Rohit plays the first delivery towards the leg side for a couple of runs. Would have been another good over for Watson, before Rohit smacks him towards the midwicket boundary to get his first boundary. Eight off the over.


    Mumbai Indians need 93 to win from 66 balls. 

  • 18:33 (IST)

    After 8 overs,Mumbai Indians 62/2 ( Nitish Rana 26 , Rohit Sharma (C) 1)

    Negi introduced into the attack now. He was quite handy with the bat earlier. Remains to be seen if he can get a breakthrough for captain Virat with the ball. And he does exactly that in the third ball of the over, with Buttler coming down the ground and driving straight into the hands of extra-cover. Skipper Rohit Sharma walks out to bat, and gets off the mark in his second delivery with a single. Superb over for RCB, with just four and a wicket coming ff it. 


    Mumbai Indians need 101 to win from 72 balls. 

  • 18:31 (IST)

    OUT! Negi gets the much-needed breakthrough in just his third delivery, with Buttler coming down the track and driving straight into the hands of Head at extra-cover! MI 61/2

    Buttler c Head b Negi 33(21)

  • 18:29 (IST)

    After 7 overs,Mumbai Indians 58/1 ( Jos Buttler 31 , Nitish Rana 25)

    Watson introduced into the attack in the seventh over. And a tidy one for RCB, with just three singles coming off it. With the two batsmen at the crease, having smacked quite a few boundaries around the ground in the powerplay overs, they will look to canter along for some time. 


    Mumbai Indians need 105 to win from 78 balls. 

  • RCB going with 2 spinners deprives them of their best new ball bowler Sam Badree. Chahal and Negi will have to step up and make up for his absence. Clutch of wickets only hope when target not too stiff

  • 18:23 (IST)

    After 6 overs,Mumbai Indians 55/1 ( Jos Buttler 30 , Nitish Rana 23)

    Chahal to bowl the final over of the powerplay. Keeps it tight for the first five deliveries, giving away just two singles, before Buttler smashes a monster six towards wide long-on, with eight coming off it. Strategic timeout signalled at the end of the over. 

    Mumbai Indians need 108 to win from 84 balls

  • Bit of a lull in play.  MI had made their way to 36/1 after 4 overs.  The Wankhede has found its own way to keep itself entertained as it suddenly goes 'Saaachin Saaachin'.  The DJ calls fir a flag-waving competition among the stands

  • 18:18 (IST)

    After 5 overs,Mumbai Indians 47/1 ( Jos Buttler 23 , Nitish Rana 22)

    Aaravind introduced into the attack in the fifth over. FOUR! Rana pats the second ball of the over down the ground for his fourth boundary! FOUR! In the slot for Buttler to smack it down the ground, and the Englishman does exactly that in the penultimate delivery of the over. 11 off the over, with a single off the last one. MI progressing quite well at this stage. 

  • 18:14 (IST)

    After 4 overs,Mumbai Indians 36/1 ( Jos Buttler 18 , Nitish Rana 17)

    Choudhary to bowl his second over of the innings. Buttler tries hammering the second ball of the over down the ground, but Choudhary's foot takes the pace off the ball, and Chahal is able to dive near the straight boundary to save a couple of runs for the visitors. Vicious bouncer in the fourth ball. Four runs off the over, a much better one for RCB. 

  • Jos Butler smashes back to back boundaries to put Adam Milne under pressure. RCB will have to contain MI in the first 6 overs. 

  • 18:09 (IST)

    After 3 overs,Mumbai Indians 32/1 ( Jos Buttler 15 , Nitish Rana 16)

    Milne introduced into the attack. Buttler launches himself in this over with back-to-back fours. First a drive wide of mid-on, before pulling the short ball outside off towards midwicket. Misfield by Aravind at third man after a slash by Buttler, and manages to stop the boundary in the last second. Wide in the fourth delivery. Miscue by Rana in the fifth ball while looking to guide it towards the leg side, though it is too tough for Choudhary to collect while running backwards. Four more in the last ball, with Buttler timing his drive to perfection. 17 off the over. 

  • 18:03 (IST)

    After 2 overs,Mumbai Indians 15/1 ( Jos Buttler 2 , Nitish Rana 13)

    Chahal into the attack from the other end, and there are a couple of scares for MI in this over. A bit of a mix-up between Buttler and Rana in the second ball, with Rana's sweep in the fourth delivery falling just short of the fielder at backward square-leg, before running away for a four. Boundary the last ball, with Rana piercing the gap between extra-cover and mid-on this time. Nine off the over. 

  • 18:00 (IST)

    After 1 overs,Mumbai Indians 6/1 ( Jos Buttler 1 , Nitish Rana 5)
     

    Nightmarish start for MI, with Parthiv choosing to pull the first ball towards the leg side, and miscuing it. Gets caught at short midwicket. Rana, the new batsman at the crease, flicks the last ball of the over towards the fine-leg boundary. Six off the over .

  • The score that RCB could manage in the end -- 162/8 -- looks a bit underpar. Mcclenaghan again the pick of the bowlers for MI.  None of the batsmen from the visiting side could go on and put up a big score.  Kohli and ABD gots starts but railed to convert.  Will have to favour MI to win this one. 

  • Most ducks in IPL:

    13 - Harbhajan Singh 

    12 - Gautam Gambhir, PARTHIV PATEL*

    11 - Manish Pandey, Piyush Chawla 

  • 17:56 (IST)

    OUT! Golden duck for Parthiv, and he walks off first ball! Miscues his pull towards the leg side, and Chahal pulls off a superb catch down at short midwicket. MI 0/1

    Parthiv c Chahal b Choudhary 0(1)

  • 17:54 (IST)

    Choudhary bowls the first over of the innings. Parthiv and Buttler open as usual. 

  • Mumbai Indians have lost only one match out of four while chasing at Wankhede in this IPL. On the contrary side, Royal Challengers Bangalore have won two matches in this IPL and both while batting first. 

    Royal Challengers Bangalore today:

    1-6 overs: 52/2 (RR-8.66) 

    7-15 overs: 63/3 (RR-7.00) 

    16-20 overs: 47/3 (RR-9.40)

    Will the middle-overs hurt Royal Challengers Bangalore once again at the end of the match?

  • 17:43 (IST)

    After 20 overs,Royal Challengers Bangalore 162/8 ( Adam Milne 0 , )


    McClenaghan to bowl the final over of the innings. Jadhav tries to slog the first ball over the cover boundary, but doesn't connect, and ends up with a single, which brings up the 50-stand for the sixth wicket. Negi reaches out for a wide-pitched delivery, and hammers it down the ground for his first boundary. Negi holes out to Pollard at long-on  while attempting to slog a slower ball from McClenaghan. Jadhav is dismissed in the next delivery in a near-repeat of the previous dismissal, and it is a team hat-trick in the final ball as Aravind is run-out for a diamond duck. 


    Mumbai Indians need 163 to win from 20 overs! 

  • 17:39 (IST)

    OUT! Milne faces the last ball, misses, and sets off for a run with non-striker Aravind budging from his spot quite late and getting run-out. Parthiv runs down and clips the bails off. Three wickets off the last three balls! RCB 162/8

    Adam Milne run out 0(0)

Preview In-form Mumbai Indians (MI) are all set to take on bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL at the Wankhede Stadium in Ipoh on Monday.

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai are on the second spot with seven wins in nine matches, while lacklustre Bangalore are at seventh spot after having won just two of their 10 games.

Mumbai, who have virtually qualified for the knock-out stage of the cash-rich tournament will have an advantage as the hosts have just lost one game on their home ground.

High on confidence after Mumbai edged past Gujarat Lions in a super over in the last match, the hosts will like to dominate Bangalore from the start.

Mumbai's bowling department has been in brilliant form. Their batting department has also shown its class so far in the tournament.

Opener Parthiv Patel along with Jos Buttler, Rohit, Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya are also going through a purple patch that will surely help the home team in outplaying the visitors.

It also seemed like that the upcoming match between two team would be a lop-sided one because down-and-out Bangalore, who have some quality batsmen like Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson have drastically failed to click in unison.

Unlike Mumbai bowlers, Bangalore also lack experience in their bowling department. They lack some quality front-line bowlers who can do damage in the death overs.

So Bangalore would bank on their key spinner Samuel Badree to execute the plans and gave the visitors some positivity.

Squads:

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Lendl Simmons, Mitchel Johnson, Mitchell McClenghan, Nitish Rana, Parthiv Patel (wicketkeeper), Saurabh Tiwary, Shreyas Gopal, Tim Southee, Lasith Malinga, Krunal Pandya, Keiron Pollard, Ambati Rayudu, Asela Gunaratne, Harbhajan Singh, Hardik Pandya, Jagdish Suchith, Jaspreet Bumrah, Jos Buttler, Karn Sharma and Vinay Kumar.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (captain), AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Mandeep Singh, Adam Milne, Vishnu Vinod, Sreenath Arvind, Kedar Jadhav (wicketkeeper), Shane Watson, Stuart Binny, Samuel Badree, Iqbal Abdulla, Travis Head, Sachin Baby, Avesh Khan, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tymal Mills, Aniket Chaudhary, Praveen Dubey, Billy Stanlake.
