The Mumbai Indians who did not start the campaign brightly have slowly found their form in the latter stages but were dealt a blow by neighbouring RCB who blew them away after a poor first innings show by the home team.

The MI skipper Rohit Sharma said that this loss was just an off day for the team and that de Villiers played really well and that their plans especially of a bowling unit failed along with a lethargic display on the field. Rohit felt that RCB who were top heavy provided them with chances that they couldn’t hold and that they paid for their mistakes.

The team from Bangalore posted the highest total in this seasons IPL with the help of a huge 2nd wicket stand between AB de Villiers and the skipper Virat Kohli. AB de Villiers scored a 59 ball 133 and Kohli scored more than 80 runs in the partnership.

The skier that Rohit dropped of Chris Gayle didn’t cost as Gayle could not add much to the score but the drop by Harbhajan made a huge impact as MI were completely rattled by the De Villers show. Rohit felt that he had the match in control till the end of the power play in the first innings added that it was difficult to contain runs if they do not pick wickets up in the middle of the game but added that the RCB batsmen played really well to post the total.
