Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) produced a brilliant bowling attack as they beat Mumbai Indians by 14 runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday night. Chasing a managable target of 168 runs, Mumbai lost wickets at regular intervals and could only post 153/7 in their 20 overs. Except for Hardik Pandya, who scored a patient 50 off 42 deliveries, the rest of the Mumbai batsmen were unable to stand up to the RCB bowlers. RCB are now at the fifth spot in the IPL table with six points from their eight matches. Mumbai are second from bottom in the eight-team ladder with four points from eight matches. Mumbai's chase ran into trouble right from the start as they lost their entire top order in the first seven overs before the total had reached the 50-run mark. (Scorecard)

Earlier, a disciplined bowling effort by Mumbai Indians restricted Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to a moderate 167/7. The Mumbai bowlers pulled out all stops to keep the star-studded Bangalore batting line-up at a manageable total. Put into bat, Bangalore started on a cautious note as openers Manan Vohra and Quinton de Kock added 38 runs for the opening wicket in five overs. Pacer Mitchell McClenaghan drew the first blood for Mumbai as he dismissed de Kock (7) in the fifth over.

With the addition of another 23 runs in Bangalore's scorecard, an in-form Vohra (45 off 31) was trapped leg before off a Mayank Markande delivery in the ninth over. Incoming batter and skipper Virat Kohli (32 off 26) then joined Brendon McCullum and the duo showed some resistance forging a 60-run partnership to take Bangalore past the 100-run mark. McCullum ran himself out while trying to take a single with the Bangalore scorecard reading 121/3. Kohli then tried to take Bangalore forward with Mandeep Singh (14 off 10) however, medium-pacer Hardik Pandya's double blow in the 17th over put the hosts on the back-foot.

Pandya sent both the batters back to the dug out on successive deliveries with Bangalore reeling at 139/5. A 10-ball 23 by Colin de Grandhomme in the final moments, however, helped the hosts reach a fighting total despite Washington Sundar (1) and Tim Southee (1) failing to fire. For Mumbai, Hardik Pandya was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/28 while Mayank Markande, McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah bagged a wicket each.

The Man of the Match award has been given to Tim Southee for his figures of 4-0-25-2. He was pivotal at the death and didn't let the batsmen get under him. Bowled yorkers at will to which the batters had no response.

!

Mumbai had a challenging total on their hands as the wicket was a bit slow. They needed a good start but didn't get it. Lost wickets at regular intervals and kept too much at the back end. They lost four inside the first ten and just when Duminy and Hardik looked to steady the ship, a piece of brilliance from Umesh Yadav saw the former getting run out. Then, the Pandya brothers did revive the Mumbai hopes with a 56-run stand. But they had no answer to the death bowling of Bangalore and in the end they finished short of the target.

!

Finally Bangalore's bowling came to the fore! They were exceptional tonight. After a strong finish with the bat, they carried their momentum onto the field. They came out all fired up by pegging back Mumbai early in the innings, picking up three wickets inside the Powerplay. They did lose steam in the middle but some fine death bowling by Mohammed Siraj and Tim Southee made sure that they taste victory tonight.

Tim Southee to Ben Cutting

SIX! But it does not matter. BANGALORE WIN BY 14 RUNS! This is full and on off. Cutting tonks it over the long off fence for a maximum. Finally, Virat Kohli can afford to smile, the home side stays alive in the tournament.

Tim Southee to Ben Cutting

That ball has taken the inside edge of the batsman and thudded into his pads. So 21 needed from the last ball. That is next to impossible.

Tim Southee to Ben Cutting

Another dot and that should be it. A slower short ball on middle. Cutting goes for the pull but mistimes it to deep mid-wicket.

Tim Southee to Ben Cutting

A dot! Another slower one on middle, Cutting swings but the ball takes the inside edge and goes to short fine leg. He does not run.

Tim Southee to Ben Cutting

FOUR! Cutting still keeps them in it with this boundary. Length ball on middle, Cutting heaves it through mid-wicket for a boundary.

Tim Southee to Hardik Pandya

OUT! Game, set and match? It has to be. What a ripper of a catch by Kohli. He pulled something similar in his last game but ended up on the losing side. Can this catch help him win this game? The slower ball on middle, Pandya hits it towards long on. It is uppish but for a second he must have felt he is safe. But Kohli in the deep runs forward, dives and takes it inches above the ground. Pandya gets to his fifty and is walking back. Mitchell McClenaghan is the next man in.
