Rohit Sharma expresses dissapointment

"It is disappointing to be on the losing side. We got ourselves to blame though. Didn't play smart cricket, losing wickets in the powerplay didn't help. We wanted to keep ticking with the scoreboard. Credit to RCB, they bowled really well, it was a tough wicket and they kept us guessing," says the MI skipperThats all from our side of this game. Do join us tomorrow for further coverage of IPL 2018.

Royal Challengers Bangalore win!

That's it! A fine victory for Royal Challengers Bangalore. They have won the match by 14 runs. Defending 167, the bowlers finally came good and managed to restrict MI to 153 runs. Tim Southee was particularly exceptional at the death overs. Smiles all around and a perfect birthday gift for Mrs Kohli as RCB eke out their third win of the season. 

23:35 (IST)01 May 2018

Hardik Pandya departs after scoring a fine half-century. Terrific catch by skipper Kohli at long-on. It was a slower delivery by Southee and gets the desired result. MI- 143/7

23:26 (IST)01 May 2018
Tim Southee keeps in tight!

Tim Southee concedes only 5 runs in the 17t over. Shows his experience by not giving the batsman the legnth to get under the ball. Good fielding in the deep helps as well. RCB are back in the game, MI need 30 runs in 12 balls.

23:16 (IST)01 May 2018
Expensive over!

Colin de Grandhomme concedes 17 runs in the 16th over of the match.  The Pandya brothers are at the crease and turning the heat on RCB. Two fours by Hardik and one huge six by Krunal reduces the target to 45 runs in 4 overs. The chase is on.  

22:57 (IST)01 May 2018
Run out!

A terrific throw by Umesh Yadav from the deep and JP Duminy is run out. He might have made it had he put in the dive but the error in judgment leads to fall of the wicket. Massive breakthourgh for RCB.  MI- 84/5 after 12 ovs.

22:35 (IST)01 May 2018
Keiron Pollard is gone!

Change of bowing for Kohli works,  cross-seam delivery by Siraj and Pollard tries to dab it down to third man but only manages it to edge the ball wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock. MI sink further to 47/4.

22:32 (IST)01 May 2018
Turn for Chahal

The pitch at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru is suddenly looking vicious as it offers leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal turn and bounce. Deliveries pitching on a right-handers off and middle stump is turning square.

22:26 (IST)01 May 2018

That ends the powerplay overs and Mumbai Indians are 36/3 after 6. With this we have the first Strategic Timeout of the innings. Kieron Pollard and JP Duminy are out in the middle and the two need to stay till the end. 

22:21 (IST)01 May 2018
RCB bowlers keep it tight

This has been a fine performance so far from the Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers. They have just given 29 runs in 5 overs and have picked 3 wickets. Mumbai Indians need Kieron Pollard to stay at the crease till the end and get them back in the game

22:12 (IST)01 May 2018
Rohit Sharma departs

Umesh Yadav strikes again and he has the big wicket of Rohit Sharma as he has been caught behind for a golden duck. MI 21/3. It was a back of the length delivery from Umesh that just kissed the inside edge of Rohit's bat and Quinton de Kock takes a good catch. Anushka Sharma is delighted in the stands after that wicket

22:07 (IST)01 May 2018
Umesh yadav removes Suryakumar Yadav

Another one goes down for Mumbai Indians and this time it's Suryakumar Yadav who has been trapped in front of the stumps by Umesh Yadav. Suryakumar goes for an unsuccessful review. Mumbai Indians are 21/2

21:56 (IST)01 May 2018
Early breakthrough

Ishan Kishan has been cleaned up by Tim Southee for a golden duck. Mumbai Indians lose their first wicket for 5 runs after one over. Ishan came down the track a bit and tried to play it to the on side but missed the line and saw the stumps being shattered behind him

21:39 (IST)01 May 2018
Royal Challengers Bangalore score 161/7 against Mumbai Indians

Colin de Grandhomme took on Mitchell McClenaghan and hit the fast bowler for three sixes to take Royal Challengers Bangalore's total to 161/7 in 20 overs. This is surely a vital inning that the Kiwi player has played for his side.

Another one bites the dust

What an over from Hardik Pandya as he scalps three wickets in that 18th over giving away only two runs. Washington Sundar goes for 1 and RCB are now 141/6

21:23 (IST)01 May 2018
Two in two for Pandya

Earlier, Pandya removed Mandeep Singh as he tried to hit it in the air but only managed to give a catch to Suryakumar Yadav in the deep to get dismissed for 14 off 9

21:20 (IST)01 May 2018

Mandeep Singh joins the party and he smashes a back of the length delivery from Jasprit Bumrah for a maximum. He moves to 13 and RCB are 138/3. RCB need some more shots like that to get to a defendable total. They have lost the matches after scoring huge totals

21:08 (IST)01 May 2018
Hardik Pandya hits bull's eye

Hardik Pandya gets Brendon McCullum with a brilliant direct hit at the non-striker's end. RCB lose three for 121 and McCullum goes for 37. Stationed at mid off, Hardik Pandya shattered the stumps at the non-striker's end.

With Indian skipper Virat Kohli taking on the Hitman Rohit Sharma, the clash between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians offers a delicious treat on offer for fans. But this around, the things could turn uglier with both the sides desperate for a win. So far, both Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore have won only two matches and are filling the bottom two positions in the table currently. Both MI and RCB will be eager to pull off a win to improve their odds of getting through to the playoffs, inspite of the poor record. Whichever team loses the battle, will have a lesser chance of making it through, and hence the clash between Mumbai and Bangalore is being termed as the "fight for survival". Both Kohli and Rohit are in tremendous forms, and scored fifties in their previous match. The two skippers will hope to inspire their side to pick up the much-needed win.
