Mumbai Indians need to chase 165 for victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore. A win for either sides will confirm their entry into the playoffs. For RCB, f Devdutt Padikkal (74) was the pick of the batsman as the youngster hammered yet another fifty in the IPL. Spin brought down the run rate significantly after the Powerplay overs, before Jasprit Bumrah (3/14) precluded a collapse with two wickets in an over, as RCB went from 131/2 to 138/6 in the middle overs.
Earlier, Kieron Pollard continued to lead MI as Rohit Sharma stayed out with a hamstring niggle. While there were no changes in MI's squad from their previous game, RCB captain Virat Kohli said that there were three changes in the playing XI. Josh Philippe replaced opener Aaron Finch, Shivam Dube came in place of Navdeep Saini, and veteran fast bowler Dale Steyn replaced Moeen Ali.
