Pollard won the toss and elected to bowl. RCB got off to a good start as their both openers, Devdutt Padikkal and Josh Philippe, started hitting from the first over. However, Philippe got out after scoring 33 in 24 balls. Padikkal kept the scoreboard moving one from end, but wickets kept falling at regular intervals. On Wednesday, neither Kohli nor AB de Villiers performed with the bat. The skipper gave away his wicket at the individual score of nine and de Villiers returned to the pavilion after making 15 runs. Padikkal had scored 74 before Jasprit Bumrah sent him to the dug-out. Towards the end of the innings, Gurkeerat Singh and Washington hit a few boundaries, taking their side to 164.

When Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan came to open the innings for Mumbai, they seemed prepared to deal in boundaries and sixes. But, Mohammed Siraj sent de Kock to the pavilion at the individual score of 18. Kishan also got out sometime later after making 25 runs. Suryakumar Yadav, who came to bat at number three, single-handedly helped his side chase the target of 165. He smashed 79 (not out) off 43 deliveries.
