RCB vs Mumbai Indians:- A Comprehensive Victory for RCB against the Mumbai Indians, Well done RCB !

Virat Kohli won the toss, read the dampness in the pitch, took a perfect decision to field 1st and the team did the rest as RCB won by 9 wickets.

The RCB bowlers went steaming in at the Mumbai Indians batsmen:-

Virat Kohli called it right both at toss as well as the field first decision. He read the dampness in the pitch perfectly well as the RCB opening bowlers Zaheer Khan and Vinay Kumar who was coming in after missing last match steamed it at Mumbai Indians openers and bowled a deadly opening spell of 1st 4 overs. Inside 4 overs the Mumbai Indians had managed only around 5 runs with loss of Franklin and in form Rohit Sharma. Vinay Kumar ran through and took both the wickets.

Meanwhile, Harshal Patel too coming into the side bowled some lovely balls and his hard work paid of. He kept it tight and did not let the opposition play him freely. He too bowled a superb spell of 4 overs picking up 2 and giving away just 24 runs. Muttiah Muralitharan continued his deadly form and spun web around Mumbai Indians by picking up 2 wickets in 2 balls 1st snapping Karthik who was looking to build it up and then the dangerous D.Smith. Towards the end H.Singh and Pollard did a bit to take Mumbai Indians to score of 141 runs as Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers bowled well to contain them.

Chris Gayle made it count, as Virat kohli finished it all:-

Tillakaratne Dilshan did well to play of Malinga along with Chris Gayle who was also being watchful at the start. Dilshan fell for 19 but he had done his job and in came Virat Kohli then it was nothing looking back from there. Both Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle rotated the strikes well, left the bowlers thinking and rained Sixes and Fours in the stadium. The shots they played left the Mumbai Indians fielders as a spectator as they could do nothing about it and even the bowlers were not spared with exception of Malinga and Harbhajan Singh who bowled well. 

In the end at 18th over 1st Chris Gayle hit Rohit Sharma for a Six and then Virat Kohli finished off the match with yet another Six and as Gayle remained unbeaten on 82 runs of just 59 balls with 5 fours and 6 sixes and Virat Kohli was not out at 36 of just 25 with 2 sixes in his name. Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 9 wickets with 2 overs to spare. It was a comprehensive win for RCB as they went on to defeat Mumbai Indians.

Chris Gayle was the Man of the match and became the Orange Cap holder as he became leading run scorer in this season.
