HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:39 (IST)

    Negi got his lengths wrong in that over . The pressure of bowling the penultimate over to him ..he was getting some sharp turn and one would have expected a better over from him.

  • 23:38 (IST)

    MUMBAI WIN: Pawan Negi comes into the attack. Pacers have been rather ordinary for RCB and Kohli has no other option. He is smashed for a straight six and then a four by Pandya. This match looks all but over for RCB. The batsman doesn't stop. This time through midwicket, he gets another four. Make it another six. Delightful batting by the right-hander. And Mumbai finish it in this over. 22 runs come from the over as Mumbai win by 5 wickets.

  • 23:33 (IST)

    This game is going down to the wire. How costly will the run out of AB be ... Also will that extra run that malinga conceded of the last ball be a factor. Nail biting stuff.

  • 23:31 (IST)

    OUT: Hardik is getting some crucial boundaries for his side. He picks up a length ball from Siraj and that goes for a four. This is good batting by Pandya brothers. But Siraj is struggling for sure. And finally he manages to get a wicket. Krunal doesn't get one from the middle of the bat and Milind takes a catch. It's 148/5 now.

  • 23:27 (IST)

    Siraj is under pressure. This is the over that the Mumbai Indians need to go big !!

  • 23:15 (IST)

    The RCB medium pacers will have to bring all their slow variations into play . The knuckle ball , the off cutters , the leg cutters .

  • 23:13 (IST)

    OUT: Kohli is persisting with spin, and hasn't used Stoinis till now. Could be a debatable decision if RCB don't cross the finish line in the end. On the other hand Mumbai are batting exceptionally well. But Chahal has done the trick in his last over. He bowls one in the slot. Yadav goes for his hot but is caught on the boundary by Saini. He goes for 29 as Mumbai are 129/4. 

  • 23:06 (IST)

    Just get the feeling that the overs that the medium pacers will bowl, will define the game.

  • 22:51 (IST)

    OUT: Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav are dealing in sixes. There is no respite for RCB bowlers as Kishan picks one in the slot and hammers it into the crowds. With this shot they reach 100 too. And Chahal has done the trick. He invites Kishan into playing a big shot and the latter misses the line of the ball and is stumped. A 21-run cameo comes to an end as MI are 104/3.

  • 22:46 (IST)

    Ishan Kishan is a quality young bat : He has the ability to break into the indian team as batsman . He is a wicketkeer batsman and that’s why I feel he needs to work on his fielding too . Pant and Kishan can both play in the same 11 in the future!

  • 22:41 (IST)

    Hoooo boy - the two set batsmen back in the hut , pitch turning quite a bit . Game on !!

  • 22:39 (IST)

    OUT: Another one perishes as Moeen Ali has two. This time it's Quinton De Kock as he is caught in the crease and the ball hits him in front of stumps. He goes for 40. Mumbai are 71/2. 

  • 22:36 (IST)

    OUT: Sharp turn from Moeen Ali and he has castled well-set Rohit Sharma. The ball pitches well outside off and spins into Rohit's off stump. A welcome wicket this for Bangalore as the batsman goes for 28. Mumbai are 70/1. 

  • 22:32 (IST)

    The openers have set it up brilliantly for Mumbai Indians. Smart , sensible batting will see them though.

  • 22:19 (IST)

    This is an unbelievable start by Mumbai Indians - they look like they wanna finish this with an over or two to spare . The key for RCB is to pick up wickets . They need to get Chahal into the attack soon. At the moment , this is turning out to be a walk in the park for Mumbai Indians.

  • 22:13 (IST)

    Umesh Yadav comes back into the attak and he is being clobbered by De Kock for two four and a six to start with. It's a humongous six. MI are looking really confident here. Exceptional start here by Team MI. After 3 overs it's 36/0. 

  • 22:10 (IST)

    Batting is only gonna get easier as the game progresses .The Indians need to bat smart and keep wickets in hand for the last  6 overs.

  • 22:07 (IST)

    SIX: Navdeep Saini starts from the other end and with a wide. But Rohit just pulls him on the first ball he faces. That's a big six. That is a quick start for Mumbai and they are looking in a hurry to achieve this target. It's 20/0 after 1.5 overs. 

  • 22:01 (IST)

    Umesh Yadav starts for RCB and Rohit and Quinton De Kock open the batting. It a good start by the bowler by on the fourth ball, he gives one in the slot and De Kock smashes that for four. On the next ball it's a four through the fine leg region. It's 9/0. 

23:39 (IST)

Negi got his lengths wrong in that over . The pressure of bowling the penultimate over to him ..he was getting some sharp turn and one would have expected a better over from him.

23:06 (IST)

Just get the feeling that the overs that the medium pacers will bowl, will define the game.

23:05 (IST)

Ali comes on for another over. And he is dealt with safely by both the batsmen. And there is a huge appeal for a caught-behind by Parthiv, but the umpire is not interested. Just three runs come from the over as MI are 119/3 after 14 overs. 

23:01 (IST)
23:00 (IST)

These wickets haven't really stopped the run flow for Mumbai. They have Suryakumar and Krunal taking things forward for them. Currently MI just need 56 in 44 balls. MI are 116/3. 

22:51 (IST)

OUT: Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav are dealing in sixes. There is no respite for RCB bowlers as Kishan picks one in the slot and hammers it into the crowds. With this shot they reach 100 too.

IPL 2019, MI vs RCB Highlights Match at Wankhede: As it Happened

Follow all the live cricket score and latest updates from the game between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)MUMBAI WIN: Pawan Negi comes into the attack. Pacers have been rather ordinary for RCB and Kohli has no other option. He is smashed for a straight six and then a four by Pandya. This match looks all but over for RCB. The batsman doesn't stop. This time through midwicket, he gets another four. Make it another six. Delightful batting by the right-hander. And Mumbai finish it in this over. 22 runs come from the over as Mumbai win by 5 wickets.

Fresh from their first victory of the season on Saturday, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be looking to keep their playoff hopes alive when they face Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday. The last time these two teams met in the season, it was a game marred by controversy as umpire failed to spot a no ball and de Villiers' effort went in vain for RCB. Mumbai will be looking to regain momentum after going down to Rajasthan Royals in the previous game with the race for the playoff spots getting closer by the game. The home team will be needing their captain Rohit Sharma to lead from the front. He got off to a start against Royals but was dismissed for 47. He is yet to register a half-century this season. RCB’s dependency on AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli is no secret. Getting them early will be key for Mumbai to succeed but both the players have an impressive record at Wankhede. The toss might well play a key role with RCB preferring to chase rather than set a target.

Lasith Malinga might return for the home team, especially after Alzarri Joseph leaked 53 runs in three overs in the last game and also looked to have hurt his shoulder during fielding. Jasprit Bumrah will be the bowler to watch out for and his mouth-watering clash against Kohli will be something everyone will keep an eye on. RCB bowling will be under the pump at Wankhede – a ground on which 180 has been the par score. Navdeep Saini has been the only bright spark in an otherwise disappointing bowling line-up. Dale Steyn will be joining the team soon and that should help the men in red but this game might come a bit too soon for the fiery fast bowler.

PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR

ROHIT SHARMA – The Mumbai skipper hasn’t been having the best of seasons but looked good in the match against Royals. He was impressive during his stay at the crease and is too good a player to be kept quiet for such a long time. A flat track and an ordinary RCB bowling attack might prove to be the perfect fodder for the hitman to roar back into form.

NAVDEEP SAINI - Kohli and de Villiers are known match-winners but young Saini has been one of the impressive players in this IPL. His exploits in the Ranji Trophy are well known but he has announced himself on the big stage with solid performances. Clocking speeds above 145 kmph regularly, Saini will certainly be tested against Mumbai but will back himself to do the job for his team.

TEAM NEWS/AVAILABILITY

MI – Joseph likely to miss out due to a shoulder injury and Malinga is likely to return.

RCB – Steyn is likely to join the team but whether he is straight away thrown into the action is what remains to be seen.
