Brilliant chase from Mumbai Indians in the end. They were always going to need one good partnership to chase a target like this and despite Badree's heroics at the beginning, Pollard kept his head and architected a brilliant chase. The form of Pandya brothers would be a concern for the other teams this IPL. Mumbai Indians are checking a lot of boxes with the form of key players and youngsters like Rana. The only cause for concern would be the form of Rohit Sharma. He may be looking at promoting himself to the top of the order to make more of an impact on this tournament.

142 was never going to be enough against a team which had many potential match winners. Badree was magical. But RCB needed a miracle. Mumbai found its champions in Pollard and Krunal Pandya. Krunal's temperament to deliver under pressure again and again is outstanding. Pollard redeemed himself spectacularly. What a fight back! What a win. Kudos Mumbai Indians. You fought back like champions. You deserved the win.

Kieron Pollard is the Man of the Match for his scintillating 70 off 47 balls that helped Mumbai post a stunning recovery.

Pollard has played one of the best T20 knocks of his career here. Played himself in and teed off once he got his eye in. He has not just put Mumbai Indians in the driver's seat here but has also given a case for a promotion in this MI middle order. It was Pandya brothers in the middle overs that sucked the momentum completely out of that RCB innings. It could be those two again to see their team to the finishing line. Can't keep them out of the game, can you?

Apr 14, 2017 - 19:32 (IST)

After 18.5 overs, MI 145/6 (Krunal Pandya 37, Hardik Pandya 9)

FOUR! Not the best of starts for Mills in his final over. Krunal couldn't quite connect in this one, but went for the shot keeping the vacant leg side in mind. Tries another pull next ball, only to get a single. Wide off the fourth ball. In the end, it is Hardik Pandya who hits the winning runs once again, smashing the fifth ball over the cow-corner boundary to bring up a four-wicket win for Mumbai Indians!

Who would have thought of that when they were reduced to 7/4 in the third over. 

Apr 14, 2017 - 19:26 (IST)

After 18 overs, MI 133/6 (Krunal Pandya 32, Hardik Pandya 3)

Chahal into his third over. Swing and miss first ball, with Pollard shuffling far to his right, and missing out on the shot despite stretching out. Polly tries the same thing next ball, and connects beautifully to smash it straight over the bowler's head! Chahal though, has the final laugh in the third delivery, as Pollard gets caught by ABD at long-on while looking to end the game with a bang. Couple of threes in the next two delievries, with the ball beating the keeper on both occasions. Single to end a 13-run over, with victory now looking quite gettable for the Pandya brothers. 

MI need 10 to win from 12 balls.

Apr 14, 2017 - 19:22 (IST)

OUT! Pollard looks to go for a second consecutive big hit, though he gets a bottom-edge this time to get caught by ABD's safe hands at long-off. End of a fantastic innings by the big Trinidadian, an innings which he needed badly after a couple of poor outings. MI 126/6 after 17.3 overs.

Apr 14, 2017 - 19:19 (IST)

After 17 overs, MI 120/5 (Kieron Pollard 64, Krunal Pandya 31)

Aravind back for his final over. Good running between the wickets in the second ball of the over, with Pollard running back for a risky second. Misfield by Mills at short third man results in four extra runs, which is also the first boundary conceded by Aravind in his spell so far! The last thing RCB would want at this stage! Swing and miss for Krunal in the last ball. The partnership between Pollard and Krunal now worth 87! 

MI need 23 to win from 18 balls.

Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will hope for a turnaround in fortunes with the return of their skipper Virat Kohli, who has been declared match fit, when they take on a confident Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Friday.

The Delhi batsman was declared fit on Thursday by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) medical team and will look to boosting the confidence of RCB, who have lost two out of the three matches that they have played so far in his absence.

In Kohli's absence, South African AB de Villiers made his presence felt in the previous game against Kings XI Punjab, when he smashed his way to an unbeaten 89 off just 46 balls to help RCB post a respectable 148-4 on his comeback after recovering from an injury.

But his single-handed effort failed to take the team home as RCB went down by eight wickets. With the likes of Chris Gayle and Shane Watson failing to fire, Maharashtra batsman Kedar Jadhav was the lone consistent performer in the opening games.

Among the bowlers, seamer Billy Stanlake and spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Pawan Negi have been among the wickets.

On the other hand, back from two consecutive home victories, third-placed Mumbai will be eager to get an away victory in the early stages of the tournament.

After the narrow win against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Sunday, the Rohit Sharma-led side dominated with both bat and ball to defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets on Wednesday.

Mumbai will, however, be a bit worried with the form of Rohit and West Indian Kieron Pollard, who have so far failed to get a good score in the tournament.

The top order has been among runs with openers Parthiv Patel and Jos Buttler giving Mumbai good starts. In the middle order, youngster Nitish Rana stood out with scores of 34, 50, 45 in the last three matches.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya delivered in the first two matches with the bat while brother Krunal was in business with the ball against KKR and Hyderabad.

In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga and Mitchell McClenaghan were among wickets in the last match.


Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shane Watson, Chris Gayle, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav (WK), Travis Head, Sachin Baby, Stuart Binny, Tymal Mills, Sreenath Aravind, Aniket Choudhary, Yuzvendra Chahal, Pawan Negi, Harshal Patel, Adam Milne, Iqbal Abdulla, Samuel Badree, Avesh Khan, Tabraiz Shamsi, Praveen Dubey, Billy Stanlake.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Parthiv Patel (WK), Kieron Pollard, Tim Southee, Jos Buttler (WK), Ambati Rayudu, Mitchell McClenaghan, Nitish Rana, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Johnson, Lendl Simmons, Vinay Kumar, Saurabh Tiwary, Karn Sharma, Krishnappa Gowtham, Siddhesh Lad, Nicholas Pooran, Shreyas Gopal, Jitesh Sharma, Deepak Punia, Jagadeesha Suchith, Kulwant Khejroliya.
