Mumbai Indians as well as Royal Challengers Bangalore are fighting for a spot in the playoffs. However, Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings have already set their road to the playoffs. And there are only two slots left for other teams to occupy.
However, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first. RCB received an early blow after the departure of Devdutt Paddikal. But the bold army came back well with a total score of 165 runs. Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell massively contributed to the score.
But the target was a tricky one due to the slow wicket. As the game went on, the pitch became even slower. And it is always hard to score on slow surfaces. However, even Mumbai Indians got to a flying start.
But consecutive wickets spoiled the whole momentum for the five-time IPL champions. Wickets kept falling one after the other like a pack of cards in the game. This happened right after both the openers were out.
Mumbai Indians after the start of 57 runs for the first wicket, lost the next ten wickets in just 54 runs. Eventually, Mumbai Indians were all out for just 111 runs. The highlight of the match was Harshal Patel’s phenomenal hat trick. He took the wickets of Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Rahul Chahar in the hat trick.
