The Mumbai Indians (MI) were unable to cap a thrilling run chase, losing to the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) after forcing the second Super Over of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The duo of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers managed to reach the target of 8 set by the MI batsmen in their six balls.
MI won the toss and Rohit Sharma chose to bowl, allowing RCB's batting lineup to finally come to the party. Aaron Finch, Devdutt Paddikal, and AB de Villiers all scored quickfire fifties, helping the team reach a score of 201/3 despite captain Kohli's third consecutive poor outing with the bat.
The Mumbai chase was propelled by a stellar knock from youngster Ishan Kishan (99) and a late-game burst from Kieron Pollard. They anchored the chase despite a quick fall of wickets from the top order, including the likes of Sharma, Quinton de Kock, and Hardik Pandya.
RCB move to third in the standings with two wins in three games, below Rajasthan Royals (RR) who have a superior run rate. With the close loss, MI crashed to a second loss in their three games and slumped to fifth place.
