Before we get to the RCB vs MI post match Twitter reactions, we will have a look at the previous history between the two sides, how well they have done in the tournament so far and also how the match panned out.

The Mumbai Indians will play the Royal Challengers Bangalore in game 10 of the Indian Premier League. MI started with a defeat against CSK in the opening game of the tournament, but recovered well to cruise past KKR in their second game.

RCB beat SRH in the first game after the latter collapsed but fell well short themselves against KXIP in their second game.

The Mumbai Indians have a strong head-to-head record against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. MI lead 18-9 in the head-to-head in terms of games played. They also won both of their encounters last year, despite AB De Villiers scoring half-centuries in both games.

Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma gave the Mumbai Indians a great start in both encounters against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2019.

How The Match Panned Out

Aaron Finch and Devdutt Padikkal both played very well in the power play and scored at a rate that took the Royal Challengers Bangalore to 59-0 in the first 6 overs. Aaron Finch was the aggressor initially, while Devdutt Padikkal gave great support. The fast bowlers not working on this pitch with the new ball coming on to the bat nicely for the openers.

The Mumbai Indians managed to slow down the rate in the middle overs thanks to Krunal Pandya initially and then Rahul Chahar. The leg-spinner was expensive in his first spell but came back strongly to remove Virat Kohli. Trent Boult then also bowled really well in his second spell to peg back the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Mumbai Indians’ best bowler having a rare off day. AB De Villiers scored 55 from just 24 balls and Shivam Dube played an excellent had as well, scoring 27 from just 10 deliveries. James Pattinson proving expensive in his last over.
