IPL 2018, MI vs RCB scores update
PTI

11.58 pm IST: Riding on captain Rohit Sharma's 94 off 52 balls, Mumbai crush Bangalore by 46 runs to register their first win in four IPL 2018 matches. Chasing 214 to win, Bangalore give a poor account of themselves and post 167/8 in 20 overs and suffer their third defeat in four matches. The visitors at the Wankhede Stadium lose Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers in the fifth over bowled by Mitchell McClenaghan and with those scalps their chase completely falls apart. Bangalore captain Virat Kohli makes 92 not out off 62 balls but that only narrows the margin of the defeat, to be honest. Click here for scores. The thumping loss takes the sheen of Kohli's feat of becoming the leading run-getter in IPL history. That's from us. Don't forget to join us tomorrow for the RR-KKR match at Jaipur. Goodbye for now. 

11.18 pm IST: Virat Kohli has become the highest run-getter in the history of the IPL with his 32nd run in this innings. He overtakes Chennai's Suresh Raina (4,558 runs). Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma is the next batsman in the list with 4,345 runs. Rohit is followed by Gautam Gambhir (4,210) and David Warner (4,014). However, RCB's chase in bad shape. They need a major miracle to take this contest. Click here for scores.

10.45 pm: Bangalore have started badly in their pursuit of 214. Both Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers have returned to the dugout inside first six overs. Mitchell McClenaghan, who replaced Akila Dananjaya in this match, accounted for both batsmen in the fifth over. The match now heavily depends on Virat Kohli. If Mumbai can get him out as well, they will definitely back themselves to take this contest. Remember they are winless so far this season. Click here for scores. 

10.20 pm:  After outings of 15, 11, 18 in his previous three IPL 2018 matches, Rohit Sharma at last returned to form as he smashed Bangalore bowlers all over the park at the Wankhede Stadium. The MI captain fell short of a century just by six runs off the fifth ball of the last over, breaking many fans' hearts in the stadium. Mumbai came into the match after three successive defeats and when Umesh Yadav cleaned up Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan off the first two ball of the match, another defeat stared the hosts in the face.  However, Rohit had other ideas in mind. He and Evin Lewis added a blistering 108 runs in 11 overs to completely negate Bangalore's early advantage. However, he didn't do the bulk of the scoring in that partnership having scored just 32. But once West Indian Lewis departed for 65 off 42 balls, Rohit took centre stage and control of the innings. When Umesh returned for his third over, Rohit hit him for a six and a four off the first two balls to show him who was boss.  Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard kept him good company as the Mumbai captain continued assaulting the Bangalore bowlers. He scored 24 in the 40-run stand with Krunal, 23 in the 30-run stand with Pollard and 15 in the 29-run partnership with Hardik Pandya. Rohit eventually holed out to Chris Woakes at long-on in an attempt to hit Corey Anderon for another big shot having taken two fours and one six earlier in the over. Rohit took 52 balls to score 94 and hit 10 fours and five sixes as the hosts posted 213/6. Click here for scores.

9.22 pm IST: West Indian Even Lewis has got out for 65 off 42 balls but Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma has completed his fifty, his first this season and seventh against Bangalore. Rohit has been particularly aggressive against Umesh Yadav. After those wickets off the first two balls of the match, who would have thought that Mumbai will stage such a brilliant comeback? 200+ is definitely on the cards. Can RCB pull things back from here? Click here for scores.  

9.00 pm IST: After the loss of those two early wickets, Mumbai have made a miraculous comeback and West Indian Evin Lewis and captain Rohit Sharma are behind this revival. Lewis has scored his maiden IPL fifty and Rohit is not far behind. At this rate, Mumbai are going well past 200. Umesh Yadav's fiery spell has been completely negated by this partnership. Remember, Lewis' idol is the dangerous Chris Gayle and RCB need to get him out as soon as possible or else he will take the game away from them. Click here for scores. 

8.37 pm IST: Great start by RCB. Umesh Yadav is in some serious rhythm in IPL 2018!  Continuing his impressive bowling performance this season, the Bangalore fast bowler starts with a bang against Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium. The first two deliveries of the match bowled by him yield wickets. The in-form Suryakumar Yadav was the first to go as the quick delivery from Umesh went through his defences. Ishan Kishan was the next to go as a fiery Umesh again managed to hit the stumps. Two wickets off the first two balls of the match! This kind of start to a match is very uncommon in the IPL. It has happened only once before, back in 2011 when Praveen Kumar dispatched Chennai's Srikkanth Anirudha and Suresh Raina off the first two balls of the match. Click here for scores. 

Hello and welcome to the MI-RCB match from 2018 IPL. Virat Kohli has won the toss and decided to have a field at the Wankhede Stadium. Three changes for RCB: Sarfaraz Khan, Corey Anderson and Mohammed Siraj come in. Pawan Negi, Brendon McCullum and Kulwant Khejroliya go out. Click here for scores.

 

 

Mumbai, on the other hand, make one change. Mitchell McClenaghan comes in as Sri Lankan spinner Akila Dananjaya goes out. 

Mumbai are currently at the bottom of the table with three successive defeats and will look to register their first win of the season today. RCB meanwhile have one win in three games, which is not great either. Going back to Kohli's decision to bowl, it's a little cloudy in Mumbai right now and it's understandable why the RCB captain has chosen to bowl. Teams prefer to chase in matches where rain can make an appearance.
