Suryakumar shines as Virat's RCB suffer 2nd straight loss

Oct 28, 2020 22:57 IST

It was the battle of top 2 and Mumbai Indians proved to be too tough for the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they beat them by 5 wickets. Mumbai's decision to bowl first seemed to have backfired when Josh Philippe and Devdutt Padikkal put together a 71-run opening stand. But Jasprit Bumrah rattled RCB with figures of 3/14, also reaching 100 IPL wickets in the process. Ab de Villers and Virat Kohli failed to fire as Bangalore were restricted to 164/6. Chasing which, Mumbai lost wickets at regular intervals but one man proved to be the difference between the 2 sides. Suryakumar Yadav batted like a man possessed as RCB had no answer to his masterclass. His unbeaten 79 powered his side to a comfortable win in the final over as Mumbai became the first team to reach 16 points.
