    Virat Kohli gets orange cap

    'I don't feel like wearing this (orange cap) right now. We were not good enough on the day. Credit to Mumbai," says Kohli.  "We just threw it away, and need to reflect on our dismissals. One or two good partnerships would've done it for us, but credit to Mumbai who bowled really well. Mumbai played well, we didn't get any chances, and when you have your back against the wall - like they did - they could play fearlessly. We tried our hardest but couldn't get the breakthroughs."

    Strategic timeout!

    IPL Live Streaming Virat Kohli (AP Photo) Mumbai Indians are yet to open their win account in the Indian Premier League. Out of the three matches they have played so far, they have lost all three. They have failed in their batting, once in their bowling and have been looking for ideas to reverse the faulty start to the league. Rohit Sharma is yet to find a settled batting order for this team and also the perfect combination. It is a similar problem for their opponents on Tuesday. Royal Challengers Bangalore have failed to get their combination right. They have won only one of the three matches so far in the league. The lost loss was against Rajasthan Roayls which came at home. Now they travel to Wankhede Stadium where there will be a good wicket to bat on and there would be just enough for the bowlers. Can Bangalore upset Mumbai at their home and get the second win of the tournament. Or will Mumbai finally open their account in the league?
