...
That's it from us today. Mumbai have gotten their campaign back on track while RCB have a few more questions to answer. We'll be back tomorrow with coverage of the IPL game between the Gujarat Lions and the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Till then, goodbye and good night.
...
Winning captain and man of the match Rohit Sharma said, "This is the kind of game we wanted to play, the bowlers did an excellent job to restrict a team of RCB's quality to 170. Krunal Pandya and Harbhajan did very well. They executed the things we have spoken about in the meetings. Last year, we had no one in the top 5 scores. So everyone takes responsibility, and it was the same story today. Buttler and Pollard did brilliantly. A lot of credit has to go to Rayadu as well."
...
Time for the presentation.
...
But oh god, do we need a team to bat first and win or what? This is getting largely predictable.
...
Right now, it's no secret that the RCB bowling line up is lacking quality. Lacking fizz. Lacking bite. Today it was exposed again under the bright lights in Mumbai. Iqbal Abdulla can hold his head high after picking up 3 wickets, he should retain his place in the squad.
...
170 was always not going to be enough against the Mumbai Indians on their own ground. Mumbai could have chased 200 today. The game changed after Krunal Pandya took the wickets of Kohli and ABD in one over. While Hand and Sarfaraz did get the innings back on track, it wasn't enough.
...
Mumbai Indians win by 6 wickets with 2 overs to spare.
...
17.6 Watson to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! MUMBAI INDIANS WIN by 6 wickets! Fullish ball outside off, Pollard tried to go downtown, but managed an outside edge that took the ball to the fence towards the third man area, and the team to victory!
...
17.5 Watson to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! A yorker on middle, Pollard squeezes that towards long on, and AB misfields at long on to let that ball go through for four!
...
17.4 Watson to Kieron Pollard, no run, play and a miss, short ball outside off, Pollard was looking at the midwicket fence, but couldn't connect this time!

...
17.2 Watson to Kieron Pollard, SIX! Length ball! Swivels around and smashed that into the crowd over deep square leg for a six! The Wankhede is too tiny for Pollard right now, clearing the boundary with ease.
...
17.1 Watson to Kieron Pollard, no run, wide yorker by Watson. Out of the reach of an outstretched Pollard!
...
Watson to bowl.
...
16.6 Richardson to Kieron Pollard, 1 run, leg bye, another short ball, Pollard tried to pull again, but missed the ball as it struck him on the thigh and went towards short third man.
...
16.5 Richardson to Kieron Pollard, SIX! Two in two! Halfway down the track and Pollard smokes that over square leg for another six! He's in a hurry to finish this! This was better, much much better. Short and eaten up.
...
16.4 Richardson to Kieron Pollard, SIX! Width outside off, and Pollard backs away outside leg stump and smashes the ball over mid off, just over the long off fence for six! That was almost like a tennis forehand, didn't look great, very, very effective.
...
16.3 Richardson to Kieron Pollard, no run, outside off, tried to dab at it, but missed the ball completely.
...
16.2 Richardson to Hardik Pandya, 1 run, short ball, pulled towards deep midwicket, and the ball lands just short of the man positioned there.
