RCB vs MI IPL 2018 Highlights: Bowlers power RCB to 14-run win against Mumbai Indians & move up to fifth on points table
Royal Challengers Bangalore pacers blew away the Mumbai Indians’ top order before shining in the death overs to set up a much-needed 14-run win, which kept them alive in the IPL Play-offs race in Bengaluru on Tuesday. Mumbai Indians bowlers had also exploited a difficult batting track but leaked a few runs towards to end to allow the hosts post 167 for seven, which was a fighting total under challenging conditions. Captain Virat Kohli (32) and Brendon Mccullum (37) added 60 quick runs in the middle overs to help RCB recover from a slow start. However, Colin de Grandhomme three sixes off the last over changed the course of the game. RCB were completely on the back foot but that last over made them believe that a win was possible.
Chasing a manageable target of 168 runs, Mumbai lost wickets at regular intervals and could only post 153/7 in their 20 overs. Except for Hardik Pandya, who scored a patient 50 off 42 deliveries, the rest of the Mumbai batsmen were unable to stand up to the RCB bowlers.
