Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challengers Banglore T20 Report – April 15, 2019

Mumbai Indians 172 for 5 (De Kock 40, Hardik 37*, Moeen 2-18) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 171 for 7 (De Villiers 75, Moeen 50, Malinga 4-31) by five wickets

AB de Villiers hit a 51-ball 75. Moeen Ali struck five sixes in his 50 off 32 and then took 2 for 18 from his four overs. Yuzvendra Chahal took 2 for 27 as well, but the rest of Royal Challengers Bangalore were being their typical Royal Challengers Bangalore selves. Despite having been nicely set up for the death overs by de Villiers and Moeen’s 95-run third-wicket stand, Royal Challengers lost five wickets for 27 runs in the last three overs – only de Villiers managing to find the boundary through that crucial stage of the innings.

Mum Indians won by 5 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

After they had hobbled to an underwhelming 171 for 7, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini and Mohammad Siraj proceeded to all concede runs at over 10 an over, giving Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock a dream start to the chase. No one in the Mumbai Indians side made a half-century, but – apart from perhaps Krunal Pandya – they all also made significant contributions. Rohit’s breakneck partnership with de Kock, which propelled the team to 70 in the first 7.1 overs was a definitive period in the game, but Hardik Pandya’s two sixes and two fours off Pawan Negi – who bowled the 19th over of the innings – sealed the match, from what was a slightly tricky situation.

With the ball, Lasith Malinga was modest against de Villiers, but took a stellar 4 for 31 anyway, prospering against every other batsman he bowled to. Jasprit Bumrah, meanwhile, muzzled de Villiers, but did not take any wickets, conceding just 22 runs from his four overs. Hardik’s 1 for 21 from three overs also helped keep Royal Challengers quiet through the middle overs.

Royal Challengers went into the last four overs of the innings with 136 for 2 on the board, and two set batsmen at the crease. They should absolutely murder it from there, right?

De Villiers’ IPL dominance over Malinga

No batsman seems to take Malinga apart in the IPL as much as de Villiers. Malinga has bowled 59 balls to him through the course of the league, with de Villiers plundering 109 runs off those balls. Never has Malinga dismissed de Villiers. Today, the trend did not change. De Villiers reaped 23 runs off the eight balls he faced from Malinga. Against the rest of the batsmen, meanwhile, he took four wickets, and gave away only 8 runs from 16 balls.
