Mumbai Indians VS Royal Challengers Bangalore IPL LIVE SCORE and LATEST UPDATES

  • That's it for today! RCB got a break recently against KXIP with a win but they are back to losing. Huge improvements required for them to stand any chance of qualifying for playoffs. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya has turned himself into a destructive finisher and Rohit Sharma was completely awestruck. We are done for tonight. Tomorrow RR take on KXIP. See you later, good night!

  • Lasith Malinga is Man of the Match for his spell of 4/31

    "Last couple of weeks have been tough for me (with all the travelling to Sri Lanka and then coming back). I had to give my 100 percent and glad we won the match. We have to adjust every single day in this kind of tournament. Mental preparation is very important. AB's the main guy. When he got out, I used my variations," says Malinga. 

  • Rohit Sharma, winning captain: Hardik's hitting is at a different level and it's helping the team and helping him. He wanted to contribute with bat and ball. He didn't have much cricket before IPL so he wanted to prove a point, to himself more than anyone else. The way he's hitting holds us in a better position. It will help us win those crucial games. (On Malinga) I've been talking about him more often, how he's been an important member of this squad. His performance matters to us. Now he's back from Sri Lanka with that sort of performance. It will help us moving forward because his form is very critical. Trust me, bowling at Wankhede in the death overs is not easy. He held his nerve against one of the best in the world. Credit to the bowlers as well to restrict a strong RCB line-up to 170.

  • Virat Kohli, losing captain: I think we played very well. After conceding 65 in six, it was always difficult to come back from that. We had to take a chance with the spinner at the end with two right-handers in. (On Moeen) He is striking the ball so well and he's bowling with a lot of heart. It's good to see a senior player in the team taking responsibility. He deserves all the credit for his performances. We now just have to enjoy ourselves, play the way we did in the last two games and try to show more composure in pressure situations. Need to take those half-chances. The catch that went down off Hardik could have been a game-changer.

  • MI win by five wickets!

    After 19 overs,Mumbai Indians 172/5 ( Hardik Pandya 37 , Kieron Pollard 0)

    There was a discussion on whether Chahal should bowl the over or not and the decision has paid for RCB. SKY went for a big shot down the ground but the ball was spinning away as he failed to get the distance and Saini took the catch at long-off. Pandya brothers in action now. Chahal finishes with figures of 2/27. 41 needed in 4 overs.

  • MI Score latest updates

  • Vedam Jaishankar, cricket writer and journalist

    MI vs RCB Expert's Voice

    The runs that RCB lost when Akshdeep got ABD run out may well cost them plenty here. The spinners will run out of overs and the final overs will have to be bowled by pacers who have hardly distinguished themselves. Worse, they won't have the cushion of those extra runs to bank on. All cards are with MI at this stage

  • After 15 overs,Mumbai Indians 127/3 ( Suryakumar Yadav 27 , Krunal Pandya 8)

    MI Score latest updates

    Negi was guilty of bowling short in this over. Width offered and SKY cut it straight past the short third man. Three singles and a wide as well. 45 needed in 30 balls.

  • MI Score latest updates

    FOUR! Negi opted to go short there. Poor choice as SKY waited for it to cut it past the short third man area

    MI Score latest updates

    One on first ball as SKY swats it to long-on. Another single in same area and then one through third man followed by three dot balls. Also, a huge appeal for caught behind against Krunal but it was never out. 53 needed in 6 overs. Ali finishes with figures of 2/18.

  • After 13 overs,Mumbai Indians 116/3 ( Suryakumar Yadav 19 , Krunal Pandya 6)

    Good over by Mo Ali. Just two singles off it. 62 needed in remaining eight overs. RCB need wickets here because you can't keep the MI hitters quiet for long.

  • After 11 overs,Mumbai Indians 108/3 ( Suryakumar Yadav 13 , Krunal Pandya 4)

    MI Score latest updates

    Ishan Kishan was in a hurry and looked like he was going to get this game over soon but Chahal had other ideas. He was first hit for a six over long-on but the leggie did well after that. Wide of off top-spinner was not picked by Kishan as he danced down and failed to connect for Patel to remove the bails. New Batsman Krunal gets a four on the last ball with a sweep shot. 64 needed in 9 overs.

  • MI Score latest updates

    FOUR! Well played by Krunal. Paddle-sweep off legspin through fine leg. Siraj put in a dive but failed to stop it

  • Vedam Jaishankar, cricket writer and journalist


    MI vs RCB Expert's Voice

    Spin has brought some hope for RCB. Two wickets in an over from Moeen Ali through prodigiously turning deliveries has lit up RCB eyes. Moeen grabbed both openers. Can he make this a really memorable match for himself and his team? The pace bowlers gave away too many runs. But RCB could still claw their way back through the spinners

  • MI Score latest updates

    SIX! Another maximum! Same techniques. Kishan dances down to put smoke it over long-on fence

  • MI Score latest updates

    SIX! Kishan counter-attacks. Shimmies down to the pitch of the ball to slam it down the ground

    Two wickets in first over of Mo Ali! Has he turned the game on its head? The ball spun back in from a good length on off as Rohit went for an inside-out shot to clean his sticks up. De Kock got out trying to play for the spin. But this one didn't spin and kept going straight as QDK was trapped in front of stumps. 

  • MI Score latest updates

    WICKET! de Kock lbw b Moeen Ali 40(26)

    Mo Ali draws the first blood! Cleans up Rohit! Outside off ball and Rohit went for an inside-out shot but it spun back in to hit the timber.

    Pawan Negi into attack and gives way just three runs. Makes you wonder why Kohli relies so much on the pacers. 102 needed in 13 overs

  • Well, he has not been doing a great job as a bowling coach surely!

    Saini has been good for RCB this season but poor tonight. Kohli looks resigned. His good length ball was on off as Rohit crunched it through extra-cover for a four and his short ball was slammed over deep square leg for a maximum by QDK. 13 off the over. Powerplay up. MI need 105 in remaining overs.

    MI vs RCB Expert's Voice

    RCB's fast bowlers have really bowled poorly. They have gifted runs to MI batsmen on all parts of the ground.They have been cut, pulled, hooked, driven, glanced on both sides of the pitch. Every now and then they get an edge.But even those have raced away as the bowlers have looked clueless. Poor Kohli just cannot set a field for such extravagant bowling. .

  • After 5 overs,Mumbai Indians 54/0 ( Quinton de Kock (W) 32 , Rohit Sharma (C) 20)

    Chahal has been called into attack! Sweep on first ball to square leg by QDK for a double and another slog-sweep in the same area for a boundary. Six off the over.
