Hardik Pandya IPL 2018 Mumbai Indians

Umesh Yadav took two wickets off consecutive deliveries with the new ball, Ishan Kishan fell for a golden duck and Royal Challengers Bangalore lost to Mumbai Indians by 46 runs. Virat Kohli might try and fix the team combination to address that issue or the RCB bowlers might rectify their lengths when they come out to play against the Mumbai Indians.

TOSS:Mumbai Indians had won the toss and elected to bowl first.

Anushka Sharma has found herself on the receiving end of vitriolic trolling once again. The next ball was fuller on the off stump. In this IPL 11 season, Virat Kohli's RCB team is giving its worst performance. Pandya gets his first wicket. He conceded 17, and Mumbai needed 45 from 24 only to see a different story unfold this time. Baz sliced Pandya for a six off a no-ball and the free hit too was deposited into the stands for a six. This team has many star cricketers. This is how it has treated the two teams who have traversed an nearly identical journey this year. "But class never dies and the 'Baz scoop" was a throwback to his glorious past. 10 runs from the over. With that wicket Mumbai were out of the game. Colin absolutely smashed his countryman, Mitchell McClenaghan to all parts of the ground in the last over. Then, openers Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav had a fine start. Fortunately and decisively for them, de Grandhomme smacked three sixes off the last four balls, including a free hit, for a competitive total. Twenty-four runs in the final over took RCB to 167/7, which proved to be above-par on a hard pitch.

RCB vs MI is also considered as one of the most popular rivalry in IPL and cricket fans are awaiting for the super-exciting encounter. We can't afford to field like that and let singles go to boundaries.

There had been some magnificent shots but some mis-timed hits as well. A loud appeal followed but MI decided against going for the review. Sneaks the delivery in to get it through the gap between bat and pad. Kohli couldn't get on top of it and was holed out at long-on.

Oppositions are quickly figuring out Washington Sundar and are getting the better of him. He should get another chance ahead of Kieron Pollard. An out of touch Pollard, however, chose to give Umesh Yadav a charge, despite the fact that the Indian tearaway was clocking 145kph.

McClenaghan, though, kept troubling Quinton de Kock (7), who struggled badly to connect the bat with the ball and was eventually caught brilliantly by Rohit Sharma at short mid-wicket off the Kiwi paceman. RCB can not afford any more such errors on the field, especially after Kohli urged his side to now treat each game as a "virtual semifinal". That was half the job done for the hosts. But it has been a slow IPL 2018 for both the teams playing at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

But Hardik was keeping Mumbai in the game. Just three runs from the over.

For once, though, RCB held their death-overs nerve.

OVERS 6: Krunal Pandya to bowl the the final over of Powerplay.
