Chasing, MI got off to a brilliant start as Rohit Sharma (43) and Quinton de Kock (24) stitched a fifty-run opening stand in no time. But Mumbai crumbled under pressure and went from 79/1 to 106/8 in just six overs. Harshal Patel (4/17) and Yuzvendra Chahal (3/11) ended MI’s innings on 111-all out after 18.1 overs.

23:18 (IST)26 Sep 2021
RCB win by 54 runs, consolidate third position!

RCB win by 54 runs after Chahal scalps the wicket of Bumrah and Harshal ends the defending champions' innings by dismissing Milne. What a win! On the other hand, MI lose three matches on the trot. MI: 111-all out (18.1 overs)

23:08 (IST)26 Sep 2021

Hardik, Pollard and Rahul Chahar fall one after another to the brilliance of Harshal! While Kohli took a smart catch to dismiss Hardik (3) on the first ball of the over, Harshal completely bowls over Pollard (7) and traps Rahul (0) between the wickets. And that should be the game for RCB. Mumbai need 60 runs in 21 balls now. MI: 106/8 (16.3 overs)

22:56 (IST)26 Sep 2021
RCB on the frontfoot

From 79/1 to 97/5! Mumbai are in deep trouble now as the balance shifts towards Kohli's side. Siraj takes the wicket of Suryakumar (8) and concedes just two runs in his over. All up to Pollard and Hardik now. MI: 99/5 (15 overs)

22:42 (IST)26 Sep 2021

Jubilation in the RCB dugout! Maxwell gets his second of the night as he removes Krunal (5) from the middle. The delivery went across the line, flicked the pad on the way to hitting the stumps. Next up, Pollard. MI: 93/4 (13.1 overs)

22:39 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Krunal, Suryakumar hold fort

Ever since Ishan's dismissal by Chahal, it has been a bit quiet from Mumbai. Krunal (5*) and Suryakumar (6*) are taking it easy through the middle overs as RCB attempt to ride on their newfound momentum. MI: 93/3 (13 overs)

22:24 (IST)26 Sep 2021

After his fifty earlier on, Maxwell impresses with the ball too! He scalps a big wicket as Rohit falls on 43. The Australian bowls a quicker outside off and Rohit's shot is caught by Padikkal at the long-on boundary. MI: 79/2 (10 overs)

22:20 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Rohit, Ishan start afresh

Rohit carries on in the same vein of form as Ishan provides good support with a fine boundary. MI: 75/1 (9 overs)

22:09 (IST)26 Sep 2021

Breakthrough for RCB! Chahal comes into the attack and on his fourth delivery, he removes de Kock on 24. The spinner entices the South African to go for the big shot but it's well taken by Maxwell running in. MI: 57/1 (6.4 overs)

22:02 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Rohit, de Kock in control at the end of powerplay

After punishing Christian with three boundaries in his opening over, Rohit (29*) and de Kock (24*) stitch a 50-run opening stand. Harshal comes into the attack and slows down MI's run-rate. Just five runs off his over. MI: 56/0 (6 overs)

21:50 (IST)26 Sep 2021
A barrage of boundaries!

A no ball by Jamieson brings the game to life! Rohit takes initiative and smacks the pacer for three consecutive boundaries afterwards. He keeps his momentum and punishes Siraj with confidence. MI: 36/0 (4 overs)

21:37 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Rohit, de Kock start the chase

Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock walk out to start the chase as Kyle Jamieson opens the attack. The openers start off nice and easy, not going for adventurous shots in the beginning. Just ones and twos so far. MI: 5/0 (1 over)

21:17 (IST)26 Sep 2021
RCB end on 165/6, MI need 166 to win!

What a turnaround by MI! Bumrah and Boult bowl two brilliant overs right at the very end, claiming three wickets and conceding just nine runs. On the back of Kohli and Maxwell's fifties, RCB end on 165/6 after 20 overs.

21:08 (IST)26 Sep 2021

How the tables have turned around! Bumrah removes both Maxwell (56) and ABD (11) in back-to-back deliveries! Boult and de Kock come clutch for MI with their catches. Just six runs off the over. Brilliant bowling! RCB: 162/5 (19 overs)

21:02 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Maxwell, de Villiers on fire

The floodgates have opened! ABD comes on and instantly chooses violence! A six on his second ball and a four on his fourth, all while facing Bumrah. The South African passes on the baton to Maxwell, who then keeps the momentum going with a massive reverse-hit six. The Australian punishes Milne even more with two boundaries. RCB: 156/3 (18 overs)

20:50 (IST)26 Sep 2021

Big, big wicket for MI! Milne removes Kohli (51) at a crucial time! The bowler pitched a slower ball into the pitch after seeing Kohli charge down... a mistimed pull guides the ball into the hands of Anukul Roy. RCB: 126/3 (15.5 overs)

20:42 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Kohli hits 42nd IPL fifty!

Fifty up for the outgoing captain! 40 balls, three fours and three sixes. RCB: 118/2 (14.1 overs)

20:29 (IST)26 Sep 2021
RCB cross 100-run mark!

Bangalore manage to stitch yet another vital partnership in the middle! Maxwell takes his time to settle down and then, he takes on the economical Krunal to punish him with a six. A four off Milne and 100's up! RCB: 101/2 (12.1 overs)

20:15 (IST)26 Sep 2021

The solid Kohli-Bharat partnership comes to an end! After being hit for two sixes in two overs, Rahul Chahar exacts his revenge. He dismisses Bharat on 32. Suryakumar with the catch at wide long-off. RCB: 75/2 (8.5 overs)

20:00 (IST)26 Sep 2021
RCB in comfortable position at the end of powerplay

After smacking Milne for a four and a six, Kohli (31*) moves on to punishing another new bowler. But he takes it easy against Krunal. Four singles in the all-rounder's opening over. Bharat is on 13* on the other side. RCB: 48/1 (6 overs)

19:51 (IST)26 Sep 2021
Kohli punishes Bumrah with four, six

Kohli ups the ante after the early blow in some style! He takes on Bumrah and slaps him for a one-bounce boundary... and then doubles the pain with a massive pull for a six! Bharat joins the party too with a four. RCB: 31/1 (4 overs)

Kohli has now crossed 10,000 runs in T20s. He has five centuries and 73 fifties in the format.
