Krunal Pandya said, "Really happy the way I bowled today. Just wanted to vary my pace, mix it up. Generally, it is a high scoring ground, expected the same today but when I bowled a few balls, I knew it will assist me if I vary my pace. It's an honour to be part of this Mumbai team and I feel glad to contribute."
...
The man of the match is Krunal Pandya!
...
Rohit said, "It was a crunch game for us. We were not thinking about what is going to happen in the table before the game, we focused on our processes, we bowled, fielded and batted well. Bangalore has always been a high scoring ground, we discussed a lot of stuff in our meetings, it was important to keep taking wickets and keep the score low. In the middle of our chase, we had a bit of a hiccup but in the end Pollard and Jos did the job for us. We just want to continue, we have 3 games left, our focus is on the next game."
...
Kohli said, "We're literally playing knockouts now. Great knock by KL to keep us in the game. The bowlers pulled it back nicely, but it was too much to ask them to restrict them to 150 here. Kudos to MI's bowlers and fielders. We lost a couple of early wickets, dismissals you don't see often, we never really got momentum. Credit to Mumbai for reading the wicket and bowling so well. I asked the boys to give their 120 percent and I'm glad they did. I'm proud of the effort put in by the boys. It's a wonderful situation to be in, having to win all the games, no room for complacency, it's an exciting position. It's going to take a lot of character to get to the playoffs from here, but this is what you play cricket for."

GAME OVER! Mumbai Indians win by 6 wickets. This is their sixth win in 7 against the RCB at the Chinnaswamy. Very impressive win. They won the first important battle, the toss. They were always going to be at an advantage chasing here. Then they came out with the ball and bowled very impressively, restricting RCB to 151. For the RCB, it was a much more impressive bowling display. Sreenath Arvind, Aaron and Chahal were all impressive but Watson, for once, and Jordan, again, failed. Mumbai Indians are an incredibly strong team and will be tough to beat.
...

...
18.1 Aaron to Pollard, 1 run, shortish ball, outside off, Pollard swivels and hits it towards long on.
...
Aaron!
...
Effectively over as Buttler deals a dagger into RCB hearts with two sixes off the last two deliveries. 10 required off 12 now. Easy peesy.
...
17.6 Jordan to Jos Buttler, SIX! Full ball on leg stump, Buttler picks it up from there, as he had backed away outside leg stump and smashed it towards the deep midwicket fence. It hits the boundary cushions on the full.
...
17.5 Jordan to Jos Buttler, SIX! Misses the yorker, does Jordan, bowls a full toss on the stumps, and Buttler, clears his front leg and smashed that straight back over Jordan's head for six. People were expecting the ramp shot, this wasn't a ramp shot, this was a full blooded heave over the bowler's head, 98 metres, that has gone into orbit.
...
17.4 Jordan to Pollard, 1 run, low full toss on middle, flicked away towards deep mid-wicket for a single.
...
17.3 Jordan to Jos Buttler, 1 run, low full toss outside off, driven to long on for a single.
...
17.2 Jordan to Pollard, 1 run, full ball outside off, guided towards third man for a single.
...
17.1 Jordan to Jos Buttler, 1 run, full ball outside off, driven to ABD at long-on
...
Pollard tears into Watson, destroys him, looks to have the mental edge here. 18 runs taken and Mumbai can do this at a canter here. 26 off 18. Do RCB have a death bowler? Jordan came in as a specialist! Is this now his moment?
...
16.6 Watson to Pollard, no run, slower ball outside off, Pollard swings, but misses the ball.
...
16.6 Watson to Pollard, WIDE! Way outside off.
...
16.5 Watson to Pollard, FOUR! Waist high full toss, Pollard thrashes that ball, flicking it off his hips towards deep square leg for a four again. This is turning out to be a very expensive over for RCB, that too by thier most experienced bowler.
...
...
16.4 Watson to Pollard, FOUR! Short ball outside off, Pollard looks to pull, gets an outside edge, and the ball flies between the keeper and short third man for four! If you flash, flash hard. Pollard's living by that mantra as he threw the kitchen sink at that ball.
...
16.3 Watson to Jos Buttler, 1 run, back of a length outside off, guided towards deep point for a single.
...
16.2 Watson to Pollard, 1 run, full and wide of off stump, smashed towards deep cover for a single.
...
16.1 Watson to Pollard, SIX! Full and wide outside off, Pollard smashes that over long off for a maximum. Brute force by Pollard. Pollard has targeted Watson as his man today, looks to be completely winning this battle.
...
16.1 Watson to Pollard, WIDE! Slower bouncer, way over the head of Pollard.
...
Watson.
...
Ah, too much excitement here. Buttler has teed off and there are 4 overs to go and 44 runs to win.
...
15.6 Aaron to Jos Buttler, 2 runs, full ball outside off, Buttler looks to go downtown, gets an outside edge that skies up in the air. It falls short of the man at deep point.
...
15.5 Aaron to Jos Buttler, FOUR! Looked to ramp, Aaron fires it outside off, Buttler still ramps it over the keeper's head for four. Just no logical explanation for that shot. Had the bat ready, was going to lift it over the keeper's head, either to his left or right, makes the adjustment at the last second to play it to the right.
...
15.4 Aaron to Pollard, 1 run, full ball on leg stump, driven towards long off for a single.
...
...
15.4 Aaron to Pollard, WIDE! A bouncer, but perhaps, it was too high!
...
15.3 Aaron to Jos Buttler, 1 run, full ball just outside off, driven down the ground for a single.
...
Buttler and Pollard at the crease. Both these batsmen have only one gear. We are in for some fireworks. Sit back. Enjoy.
...
15.2 Aaron to Pollard, 1 run, back of a length outside off, flicked towards midwicket for a single.
...
Buttler.
...
15.1 Aaron to Ambati Rayudu, OUT! What a catch! This time by ABD! Length ball outsid eoff, Rayudu picks it up from there and looks to hit it through long on. Doesn't get the timing right, and AB, running in from long on, dives forward and takes the ball inches off the ground. Unreal catch from AB! He was nowhere in the screen as the ball looked to land on the ground, but the most magnificent of forward dives saw AB complete that catch. What a moment.
...
15.1 Aaron to Ambati Rayudu, WIDE! Way outside off!
...
Aaron. HUGEEEEE over, cannot imagine what will happen if Pollard starts to unleash on Aaron.
...
Timeout. This game is on a knife edge.
...
Great battle between Pollard and Watson as Pollard look to smoke it to all parts of the Chinnaswamy!
...
14.6 Watson to Pollard, no run, wide outside off, Pollard looks to smash it over the off side, but misses it.
...
14.5 Watson to Ambati Rayudu, 1 run, good length on middle, knocked towards long on for a single.
