New Delhi. Mumbai Indians have made a strong comeback after starting with a defeat in another season of the Indian Premier League. Chasing the target of 200 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday, the team made a straight place at number 3 in the points table. RCB had scored a score of 199 runs for 6 wickets. Suryakumar Yadav’s stormy fifty along with Nihal Wadhera’s sharp shots made the match one-sided.
Maxwell and du Plessis saved RCB
RCB did not have a good start against Mumbai Indians. First Virat Kohli and then Anuj Rawat were dismissed cheaply by Jason Behrendorff. After 2 setbacks, Glenn Maxwell stepped on the field and changed the atmosphere by collecting shots. When he scored fifty on 25 balls, captain du Plessis also hit a half-century off 30 balls. Coming in the end, Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav scored 199 runs for 6 wickets.
Suryakumar’s explosive innings
For Mumbai Indians, Ishaan Kishan did such a stormy opening that dwarfed RCB’s big target. This young man scored an inning of 42 runs in just 21 balls, hitting 4 sixes and as many fours. Vanindu Hasaranga also took the wicket of captain Rohit Sharma soon after dismissing him. From here the match turned towards Mumbai instead of RCB. Nihal Wadhera scored two shots and then came Suryakumar Yadav’s storm, he completed fifty runs in just 26 balls, scoring 6 fours and 2 sixes. From here the match became one-sided and the match ended in the blink of an eye.
