- 10 overs: Harshal Patel seems to have no effect on Rohit and Rayudu. 11 runs off the over. Mumbai Indians 81/1 (90 runs required from 60 balls).
- 9 overs: Iqbal Abdulla was good in his first over. Can he do what Krunal Pandya did for Mumbai Indians. 5 runs from the over. Mumbai Indians 70/1 (101 runs required from 11 overs). Rohit 40 (29b 2×4 2×6), Rayudu 23 (20b 3×4 0x6), Abdulla 1-0-5-0, Watson 2-0-13-0.
- 8 overs: Much better over. Just 5 runs off it. Shane Watson is an experienced bowler and he needs to lead RCB attack. Mumbai Indians 65/1 (106 runs required from 12 overs). Rohit 37 (25b 2×4 2×6), Rayudu 21 (18b 3×4 0x6), Watson 2-0-13-0, Harshal Patel 1-0-9-0.

- 4 overs: Good over for Mumbai Indians. 10 runs off it. Richardson bowled well but couldn’t stop the runs. Rohit hit two FOURS in the over. Mumbai Indians 24/1 (147 runs required from 16 overs). Rohit 12 (12b 1×4 0x6), Rayudu 7 (6b 1×4 0x6), Richardson 2-0-12-1, Aaron 2-0-12-0.
- 3 overs: Utter chaos. Rohit and Rayudu were very bad in their running between the wicket. Aaron was superb in the over. There was an over-throw that fetched 5 runs. Total 6 runs off it. Mumbai Indians 14/1 (157 runs required from 17 overs). Rohit 7 (8b 0x4 0x6), Rayudu 2 (4b 0x4 0x6), Aaron 2-0-12-0, Richardson 1-0-2-1.
- 2 overs: Excellent over. Richardson has given RCB the kind of start they needed. Just 2 runs an a wicket. Mumbai Indians 8/1 (163 runs required from 18 overs). Rayudu 1 (1b 0x4 0x6), Rohit 2 (5b 0x4 0x6), Richardson 1-0-2-1, Aaron 1-0-6-0.
- WICKET! Parthiv Patel is out. Kane Richardson has got a wicket on the first ball in the IPL-9. Parthiv Patel c de Villiers b Richardson 5 (6b 1×4 0x6).
- 1 overs: 4 runs off the first over bowled by Aaron. Mumbai Indians 6/0 (165 runs required from 19 overs). Patel 5 (5b 1×4 0x6), Rohit 1 (1b 0x4 0x6), Aaron 1-0-6-0.
- Rohit Sharma back to open the innings. Parthiv Patel is the other opener. Varun Aaron, who is playing his first IPL match of the season, to bowl the first over.
Travis Head and Sarfaraz Khan made good recovery to lead RCB to 170 for 7. But will it be enough on such a flat pitch? Bowling is RCB is weakness and today it is their bowling that needs to do well.
Royal Challengers Bangalore innings
- 20 overs: 9 run off the last over. Bumrah was good in the over. RCB finish at 170/7.
- WICKET! Stuart Binny is out too. Falling line ninepins. Stuart Binny c HH Pandya b Bumrah 1 (2b 0x4 0x6).
- WICKET! Sarfaraz goes back too. He has played a good knock for RCB. Sarfaraz Khan c KH Pandya b Bumrah 28 (18b 2×4 2×6).
- WICKET! Travis Head’s good innings has come to an end. He is run out. Wanted two runs but Harbhajan sent a good flat throw from fine leg. Travis Head run out 37 (24b 2×4 2×6).
- 19 overs: Big over. Sarfaraz Khan and Travis Head have somewhat managed to provide the recovery RCB needed. 18 runs off the over. RCB 161/4. S Khan 22 (16b 2×4 1×6), Head 36 (23b 2×4 2×6), McClenaghan 4-0-46-1, Bumrah 3-0-22-1.

- 16 overs: Another good over for RCB. It was more of Krunal Pandya’s mistake than RCB batsmen’s doing. He bowled big wide that went for FOUR. 11 runs off it. RCB 123/4. S Khan 9 (8b 1×4 0x6), Head 12 (13b 0x4 1×6), K Pandya 4-0-27-2, H Pandya 2-0-18-0.

- WICKET! Shane Watson goes back. Bumrah strikes. RCB are in trouble now. Shane Watson c Patel b Bumrah 5 (10b 0x4 0x6).
- 13 over: Krunal Pandya is bowling very well. Not allowing RCB batsmen to score runs. Just 2 off this over. The RCB scorecard is crawling. RCB 98/3. Watson 5 (9b 0x4 0x6), Head 1 (4b 0x4 0x6), K Pandya 3-0-16-2, Southee 4-0-25-0.
- 12 overs: Excellent over by Southee to back the double-wicket over by Krunal Pandya. Just 3 runs in the over. RCB 96/3. Head 0 (3b 0x4 0x6), Watson 4 (4b 0x4 0x6), Southee 4-0-25-0, K Pandya 2-0-14-2.

- WICKET! Big breakthrough for Mumbai Indians. Virat Kohli is out. Looked to go over the long-off fielder but the ball hit the top-half of the bat and was caught at the boundary line. Krunal Pandya has his biggest wicket. Virat Kohli c Southee b K Pandya 33 (30b 3×4 0x6).
- 10 overs: Another good over for RCB. 10 runs off Hardik Pandya’s over. ABD hit a SIX in the over. RCB 89/1. Kohli 31 (28b 3×4 0x6), AB de Villiers 28 (18b 3×4 1×6), H Pandya 1-0-9-0, Harbhajan Singh 2-0-20-0.
- 9 overs: Expensive over by Harbhajan Singh. 13 runs off it. Two FOURS came in it. RCB 79/1. AB de Villiers 20 (15b 3×4 0x6), Kohli 30 (25b 3×4 0x6), Harbhajan Singh 2-0-20-0, K Pandya 1-0-10-0.
- 8 overs: Krunal Pandya into attack. When you are hit for 10 runs without a boundary, you know you bowled badly or the batsmen toyed with you. One of those things happened with Krunal Pandya. RCB 66/1. Kohli 24 (22b 2×4 0x6), de Villiers 14 (12b 2×4 0x6), K Pandya 1-0-10-0, Harbhajan Singh 1-0-7-0.

- 6 overs: FOUR off the last ball once again. Otherwise it was good over by Bumrah. RCB are well placed after the powerplay overs but it is flat pitch, they need to set a big target. RCB 49/1. Kohli 18 (16b 2×4 0x6), AB de Villiers 7 (6b 1×4 0x6), Bumrah 1-0-8-0, Southee 3-0-22-0.
- 5 overs: FOUR to finish the over. When ABD is batting, there is no room for error. 9 runs off Southee’s third over. RCB 41/1. AB de Villiers 5 (4b 1×4 0x6), Kohli 12 (12b 1×4 0x6), Southee 3-0-22-0, McClenaghan 2-0-18-1.
- 4 overs: Expensive over it was. Rahul hit two brilliant SIXES in the over to collect 17 runs. But McClenaghan resurrected his over by dismissing Rahul. RCB 32/1. de Villiers 0 (1b 0x4 0x6), Kohli 8 (9b 1×4 0x6), McClenaghan 2-0-18-1, Southee 2-0-13-0.
- WICKET! McClenaghan has avenged the two SIXES Rahul hit off his bowling. Mumbai Indians have got the first wicket. KL Rahul c Harbhajan Singh b McClenaghan 23 (14b 2×4 2×6).
- 3 overs: RCB openers are struggling to bat freely. Good show by Mumbai pacers. There were 9 runs from the over but they didn’t come convincingly. In fact, Mumbai Indians were unlucky that they didn’t a wicket. RCB 15/0. Rahul 7 (10b 1×4 0x6), Kohli 7 (8b 1×4 0x6), Southee 2-0-13-0, McClenaghan 1-0-1-0.
- 2 overs: Impressive over by Mitchell McClenaghan. He hit Rahul on the helmet off his first ball, as if to welcome him. Just 2 runs from the over. RCB 6/0. Rahul 3 (8b 0x4 0x6), Kohli 2 (4b 0x4 0x6), McClenaghan 1-0-1-0, Southee 1-0-4-0.
- 1 over: Nice over to start with. Just 4 runs off Southee’s over. RCB 4/0. Kohli 1 (3b 0x4 0x6), Rahul 3 (3b 0x4 0x6), Southee 1-0-4-0.
- Players are in. For RCB, KL Rahul is opening the innings with Virat Kohli today. Tim Southee will bowl the first over.
RCB: V Kohli, L Rahul, TM Head, AB de Villiers, S Watson, S Khan, S Binny, K Richardson, I Abdulla, H Patel, V Aaron.
MI: P Patel, RG Sharma, A Rayudu, J Buttler, K Pollard, H Pandya, K Pandya, H Singh, M McClenaghan, T Southee, J Bumrah.
- Mumbai Indians have made only one change with Kieron Pollard back in the XI in place of Martin Guptill.
- RCB have made SIX changes in the team. Here they are: Stuart Binny for Parvez Rasool, Travis Head for Chris Gayle, Kane Richardson for David Wiese, Iqbal Abdulla for Yuzvendra Chahal, Varun Aaron for Sreenath Aravind and KL Rahul for Kedar Jadhav.
- Toss time. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has won the toss and opted to bowl first against RCB.
- TRIVIA: The 215-run second-wicket stand between AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli’s at the Wankhede Stadium against Mumbai Indians last year is the highest partnership in all T20s.
- PITCH REPORT: Wankhede stadium has mostly provided a flat deck in the recent past. Dew could be a factor in the second innings.
- 6:30 PM: We are one hour away from the toss.
- Good evening everyone. This is 14th match of the IPL 2016. Two powerhouses of the IPL are meeting today. Exciting contest awaits us.
Misfiring Mumbai Indians, struggling to get their team combination right, will take on the formidable batting might of Royal Challengers Bangalore in a potentially explosive IPL clash at the Wankhede Stadium.
RCB, on the other hand, have a tricky bowling combination to set right in the absence of injured Australian pace spearhead Mitchell Starc — ruled out of the season – and miserly leggie Samuel Badree, who is yet to make an appearance in the T20 league after picking up an injury during West Indies’ triumphant run in the World T20 championship.
MI and RCB have fought tooth and nail since 2008 with the IPL result score-line reading 9-8 in favour of the hosts, who have tasted defeat three times in four games this season, including in the last two, in their bid to retain the crown that they won after a similar, poor beginning in 2015.
Last season, the score was tied 1-1 with each team outsmarting the other in their respective away games.
RCB come into the needle clash after being flattened by South African wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock’s masterly hundred, the first ton by any batsman this season, and they will need to quickly correct their bowling combination.
Two-time title winners, MI have slumped to defeats in both their home matches this season – to IPL debutants Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions – and they would be keen to score their first win on their traditional home ground in one of the two remaining games scheduled at the Wankhede Stadium before they move to Jaipur, which will become their new home for rest of the season.
Mumbai’s top-order batting has been miserable so far barring the clash against Kolkata Knight Riders, another two-time champion outfit, when captain Rohit Sharma’s superbly compiled unbeaten 84 led them to victory.
But in the other three games, the leading batsmen have failed to click as a unit. Even a re-worked batting order against Sun Risers Hyderabad, by dropping the out-of-form Kieron Pollard from the eleven and making Parthiv Patel open the batting with newcomer Martin Guptill, replacement for their consistent but injured opener Lendl Simmons, did not produce the desired result.
In the absence of their ever-reliance Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga, Mumbai have depended upon the New Zealand duo of Tim Southee and Mitchell McClenaghan to make early inroads and this combination is expected to continue against RCB.
After failing to contain SRH skipper David Warner at Hyderabad yesterday, Harbhajan Singh would be keen to get back into his best form at a ground where he often bowls well.
With Englishman Jos Buttler not exactly setting the stage on fire, there could be a case for the big-hitting but yet-to-fire Pollard to regain his spot in the eleven. MI have found in Krunal Pandya, a left-handed spin bowling utility player who can bat well down the order.
But his better known brother Hardik has so far failed to click both with the bat and the ball, although being given a more responsible role, and MI’s think tank would be expecting a quick turn-around in performance from this ebullient player.
RCB’s obvious might lies in their explosive quartet of top-order batsmen – Chris Gayle, yet to fire his missiles so far, captain Virat Kohli, A B de Villiers and Shane Watson, with fearless Mumbai-based youngster Sarfaraz Khan to follow and end the innings on a flourish.
Gayle, as well as his teammates, would be hoping that the West Indian batting powerhouse re-discovers the sort of form that he showed at the same venue when smashing 11 sixes in the WT20 game against England last month. But the Jamaican would have to negate the movement from Jasprit Bumrah and Southee up front before launching into his murderous mood.
RCB’s troubles lie mainly in their bowling attack in which Watson has been the lone stand-out performer.
New Zealand’s quick Adam Milne and South African all rounder David Wiese both leaked runs aplenty in one of the two games they played, but would relish the Wankhede track, which has supported seam bowling this season, if given the chance. Australian pacer Kane Richardson too is waiting in the wings.
With Harshal Patel not getting the breakthroughs, MI might seek to get in Stuart Binny, who can bat low down and bowl at medium pace, or Varun Aaron to take advantage of the extra pace on the track. The RCB spin attack of Yuzvendra Chahal and Parvez Rasool looks decent but not threatening.
The team bowling second here could also be handicapped by the dew factor.
