RCB suffered a setback right away by Jason Behrendorff who gave 36 runs and took 3 wickets in his four overs, who whacked early in the powerplay. However, du Plessis who made 65 runs off just 41 deliveries, and Maxwell who made 68 runs off just 33 deliveries paired up to show off MI’s bowling difficulties once more as they made the most of the ideal conditions for striking.

After early losses for Mumbai Indians such as Virat Kohli scoring just 1 and Anuj Rawat who made only 6 runs, RCB was able to make a comeback thanks to the efforts of Du Plessis along with Maxwell, who contributed 120 runs for a 4th wicket off only 62 deliveries. This powered the RCB’s assault.

Maxwell seemed to be in his stride as he produced some excellent shots and recorded his 4th half-century of the season by smashing four maximums and 8 boundaries.

On the opposing hand, du Plessis was similarly excellent in terms of strokeplay, hitting quick bowlers and spin alike to go to his 6th half-century. He was given a chance by Nehal Wadhera in the initial over when he had yet to establish his account, but he recovered quickly and went on to score.

Du Plessis has reached 576 runs in eleven games at a rate of 64, which has allowed him to extend his position at the peak of the chart for the leading run-getters in this year’s competition.

However, with their credit, MI came back during the 2nd half to remove Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror with 1 run, and du Plessis in rapid succession. This halted RCB’s assault as they were unable to push above the 200-run barrier, which at one moment appeared plausible. MI’s efforts earned them credit.

The bowling effort put up by Mumbai Indians was significantly better than it had been previously, as evidenced by the fact that they only let up 68 scores in the final 7 overs.

RCB’s score dropped from 131 runs for the loss of 2 wickets during 13 overs to 146 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in the fifteenth over when Dinesh Karthik did well to extinguish his mediocre run with the bat. Dinesh Karthik scored 30 runs off just 18 deliveries.

After Mumbai sent Royal Challengers Bangalore in to bat, the team quickly reached 199 for 5 thanks to a century partnership between Faf du Plessis with 65 runs off just 41 deliveries and Glenn Maxwell with 68 runs off just 33 deliveries. This was the 4th-century partnership of the season.

In his phenomenal performance, which resulted in a strike rate greater than 237, Suryakumar hit 6 maximums and 7 boundaries in his innings.

Wadhera, who had been dropped on 16 by Wanindu Hasaranga who gave 53 runs and took 2 wickets on a difficult return opportunity, was then promoted to the number 4 position and went on to score his 2nd half-century of the campaign. The left-handed batsman hit four boundaries and 3 maximums while facing 34 deliveries, resulting in a score of 52 not out.

Regardless of Rohit Sharma’s continued lackluster performance, the Mumbai Indians never appeared to be in any kind of a precarious situation because of the way their rearranged batting order performed. This was despite the fact that their bowlers had ignited a comeback of types in the 1st half of the match.

Even though Sharma, skipper of the Mumbai Indians, went out for just 7 runs when he was dismissed, RCB was unable to come back into the game thanks to a rapid start given by Ishan Kishan who scored 42 runs and a robust stand for the 3rd wicket.

At one point, RCB appeared to be coasting towards a large total when MI came back to hit the brakes. However, the failure of the visitors to score on even 200 runs ultimately came back to haunt them.

Ishan Kishan scored 42 runs in just 21 balls before being caught behind by Hasaranga. Rohit Sharma scored 7 runs before being dismissed by Hasaranga, which brought the powerplay to a close for Mumbai Indians with a score of 62/2.

Kishan struck four maximums and 4 boundaries, making a significant contribution to the 51 runs that he and Sharma scored together before Sharma was out for a score in the single digits for the seventh time in a row.

After facing only 26 balls during the entire season, Suryakumar reached his 4th fifty of the year and his 3rd at the Wankhede.

While he and Nehal Wadhera who scored 52 runs and was not out were making little progress in the 200 pursuit, the Surya storm reached the Wankhede. Surya combined with Nehal and shared a blistering 140-run partnership for the 3rd wicket off just 66 deliveries to bring down the opponents. They did this by taking the bowlers from Bangalore to the wash on a beautiful batting display.

The crushing victory propelled Mumbai to the third slot on the points table, moving them up from a dismal eighth place, while the loss dropped RCB to the seventh position, further lowering their standing.

In their run chase for 200, Mumbai Indians cruised to win in 16.3 overs, preserving their unblemished streak of never losing to RCB when playing at Wankhede since the 2015 season of the Indian Premier League.


Swashbuckling In a pivotal Indian Premier League match that took place in Mumbai on Tuesday, Suryakumar Yadav was in monstrous form as he blasted 83 runs off only 35 balls to lead the Mumbai Indians to a devastating six-wicket victory over the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
