TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.25)165/6
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Devdutt Padikkal, 1.4 ov), 2-75 (Srikar Bharat, 8.5 ov), 3-126 (Virat Kohli, 15.5 ov), 4-161 (Glenn Maxwell, 18.3 ov), 5-161 (AB de Villiers, 18.4 ov), 6-162 (Shahbaz Ahmed, 19.2 ov)
19.2 to Shahbaz Ahmed, cleans him up! Yorker on off, and the off stump is dislodged! Bowls that right under the bat of Shahbaz at 135kph, as Shahbaz looks to heave that to the on side, but that was too good a ball to do anything with. Right where his captain would have liked, and Boult starts the final over with a dot and a wicket. 162/6
1.4 to D Padikkal, snuffs him out! Away, away, away, and this time manages to find a thick edge as Padikkal pokes at this, QDK takes an excellent catch moving to his left. Beat him twice, got the edge once and Bumrah has already made a mark tonight. Padikkal made the mistake of poking at that with an angled bat.. 7/1
18.3 to GJ Maxwell, yorker length ball on off, and that is ballooned to long-on! Looks to hoick that near yorker just outside off, but gets that off the bottom of the bat to Boult, who barely has to move to take a simple catch. A masterful innings comes to an end, with Maxwell giving RCB hope of a total near 185. 161/4
18.4 to AB de Villiers, two in two, and Bumrah is on a hat-trick! de Villiers edges it behind to the keeper. That is short of a length just outside off, and climbing on to the batter. de Villiers to upper cut that, but gets a thick edge behind, as RCB lose another one. 161/5
15.5 to V Kohli, dances down, and top-edges this pull to deep square leg! Knuckle ball from Milne on a short of a length on off, as Kohli is too early into that shot. Gets that pull off the edge, as the substitute fielder runs in a few steps forward to complete that catch. Vital wicket for Mumbai here. 126/3
8.5 to KS Bharat, lofted delightfully but he has picked out the man at wide long-off. Good catch in the end, Chahar has the last laugh. But Bharat has done his job. Right intent in trying to clear the ropes, the execution was a tad off. But he can be happy with his contribution. 75/2

TOTAL18.1 Ov (RR: 6.11)111
Fall of wickets: 1-57 (Quinton de Kock, 6.4 ov), 2-79 (Rohit Sharma, 9.6 ov), 3-81 (Ishan Kishan, 10.3 ov), 4-93 (Krunal Pandya, 13.1 ov), 5-97 (Suryakumar Yadav, 14.1 ov), 6-106 (Hardik Pandya, 16.1 ov), 7-106 (Kieron Pollard, 16.2 ov), 8-106 (Rahul Chahar, 16.3 ov), 9-111 (Jasprit Bumrah, 17.3 ov), 10-111 (Adam Milne, 18.1 ov)
14.1 to SA Yadav, nabbed at short third man! Siraj bowls this fullish and really wide of off. It is an offcutter too, as Suryakumar goes fishing at that away from his body, while also presenting a horizontal bat. The ball flies off the top edge to Chahal, who takes a sitter. It would have been a wide easily had he left that alone. 97/5
16.1 to HH Pandya, Kohli runs back at extra cover, and takes that skier! Hardik is beaten by the lack of pace, as Harshal goes for the scrambled seam ball on a full length outside off. He goes for the slog to the on side, but gets it off the leading edge, as the ball balloons to the off side instead. Harshal has his 20th wicket of the season, and with that, he has just pushed his side further ahead. 106/6
16.2 to KA Pollard, clips his leg stump, and Pollard departs too! Harshal on a hat-trick. Pollard is across off a little too soon, as Harshal bowls another slower ball which is very full and dipping on middle. It angles in after pitching, and strikes his leg stump since Pollard is already across his stumps.. 106/7
16.3 to RD Chahar, that is a hat-trick for Harshal, and he is off in celebration! A third slower ball in a row, and it is dipping on to the batter to be a low full-toss on leg. But Chahar is clipping that from off stump rather, and is struck on the pad. Harshal knew it was out the moment he appealed, and the umpire raised his finger immediately too. 106/8
18.1 to AF Milne, and the off stump comes off again! All hands up against another change of pace ball. Milne looks to flick this across the line, but it is a slower ball yet again - in fact, all four of his wickets have now with that lack of pace delivery - as Milne misses and Harshal hits again! Gets his fourth for the day, as Mumbai fold up for their lowest ever score against Royal Challengers in IPL. 111/10
6.4 to Q de Kock, he's hoicked this to deep midwicket where Maxwell takes a good, low catch diving forward. Chahal did de Kock in flight, got this to dip and turn as well. Got the feeling that de Kock ended up dragging it a bit. Such delightful legspin bowling. 57/1
10.3 to Ishan Kishan, leading edge, and skied to short third man! Kishan's poor run of form continues. He skipped down to this full ball on off, which was turning away from him a touch after pitching, as he looked to hoick that away to the on side. But that is mistimed, as the bat face closes, and he sends that for an easy take. 81/3
17.3 to JJ Bumrah, cleans him up! The off stump is down and out. Bumrah goes low to sweep this full ball outside off, which is again coming into him. But he plays too early, and is completely beaten by the turn, as the ball strikes the woodwork behind. 111/9
9.6 to RG Sharma, he's hit this straight to long-on! Rohit was looking to muscle this over but didn't quite get hold of it, was the blow off the previous delivery the reason for him not getting enough power? Either way, RCB won't really bother because they know they've got a massive strike.. 79/2
13.1 to KH Pandya, off stump is uprooted! Pitches that short on middle, as Krunal dances down to try and swing that away toward deep midwicket or thereabouts. But he seemed to be too early into the shot, as the ball hit his pad and ricocheted to the off stump. Another wicket for Maxwell, and his impressive show today continues. 93/4
