Mumbai Indians 

The Mumbai Indians won their first home match, showing they are getting back to winning ways. They scored a good total of 235/5 against DC, with their batsmen playing well again.

MI’s opening batsmen, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, started strong against the bowlers, mostly scoring boundaries. Sharma got 49 runs, and Kishan added 42 runs. This strong start was just what MI needed this season.

Tim David also played well, hitting many big sixes. But the star player was Romario Shepherd, who scored 32 runs in the final over bowled by Anrich Nortje and took a wicket during his bowling.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB still faces difficulties as they lose their fourth game out of five this season. Even though Virat Kohli scored a century in the last match against RR and RCB managed to score 183 runs, their bowlers couldn’t defend this target well.

The team is waiting for their captain, Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell to perform well. Maxwell has had a tough time, getting out without scoring in two out of five games and not taking enough responsibility. Also, Siraj hasn’t been consistent in his bowling and is struggling with accuracy.

RCB needs to develop a better game plan to end their losing streak.

Weather and Pitch
