The defending champions Mumbai Indians were struggling from the beginning as the RCB bowlers started the second innings of the match in a very disciplined way. Especially, the 20-year-old off-spinner Washington Sundar bowled superbly in the powerplay.

In the second over, Sundar took the wicket of captain Rohit Sharma (8). Suryakumar Yadav was dismissed by Isuru Udana for a duck in the next over. The defending champions only managed to score 35/2 in the mandatory powerplay.

Struggling on 39/3, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya put the 39 runs partnership for the fourth wicket. However, Hardik (15) was caught out at the boundary in the crucial moment as the Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa took that wicket.

However, Ishan and Kieron Pollard then handled the innings and set up the game-changing century partnership for the fifth wicket. Ishan completed his fifty with a sixer in 39 balls and continued his impressive performance.

Despite conceding a sixer, Navdeep Saini was very disciplined in the 19th over as he conceded 12 runs in that over. Mumbai Indians now had to score 19 runs in the final over.

After conceding two consecutive sixes on the third and fourth ball of the final over, Isuru Udana dismissed Ishan for 99 runs off 58 balls (2 fours and 9 sixes). Ishan-Pollard had the 119 runs partnership for the fifth wicket.
