Rohit Sharma stole the show as Mumbai Indians (MI) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede Stadium. Riding on a stellar 94-run knock, Rohit along with opener Evin Lewis (65) hammered the Bangalore bowlers all over the park to guide their team breach the 200-mark score in stipulated 20 overs. Chasing 214 runs, RCB got off to a good start reaching 40 runs in 4 overs. Quinton de Kock was the first to depart for 19 runs after which Mumbai faltered in their run chase. Kohli played brilliantly for his unbeaten 92 runs in 62 balls but it went in vain as no other batsmen crossed the 20-run mark. Krunal Pandya was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai as he returned with figures of 3/28 while Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell McClenaghan took two wickets each. (SCORECARD)
Earlier, Mumbai posted 213/6 in 20 overs against Bangalore in their IPL clash. RCB got off to a dream start after Umesh Yadav picked up two wickets in the first two balls of the first over of Mumbai innings. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan were clueless in reading Yadav's length and were clean bowled by the pacer. After their dismissal, Mumbai skipper Rohit and Lewis began to rebuid for the hosts. Lewis played a sublime knock of 65 runs which was laced with 5 sixes and 6 fours. He was eventually dismissed by Corey Anderson in the 12th over. Rohit played a brilliant knock of 94 to ensure his team posted a competitive total. Rohit hit 10 fours and 5 sixes to help his team reach a big total. Yadav was brilliant in his first spell where he took two wickets and gave away only 8 runs in his first two overs. Washington Sundar and Yuzvendra Chahal were all at the receiving end of Lewis' hammerings. Both the bowlers failed to contain the Windies' opener.

19:03 IST: Hello and welcome to the live match updates of the 14th IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore from the Wankhede Stadium.
RCB started off on the losing note to Kolkata Knight Riders but brought their campaign on track immediately with a convincing victory over Kings XI Punjab at home and then lost a high-scoring game to Rajasthan Royals at home on Sunday. RCB's bowlers, especially Umesh Yadav who had broken the back of KXIP innings with a three-wicket burst in one over, went for plenty against the Royals who set up the highest total so far of the season, 217. RCB need to set right their bowling woes as MI possess a strong batting line up that threatened to score over 200 in their previous game before the Daredevils bowlers restricted them below that threshold.
