MI’s Suryakumar Yadav played a superb knock of 68 off just 37 balls to take MI to a fighting total of 151/6 in 20 overs.
RCB won the toss and asked MI to bat first. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan got off to a good start but soon the wickets began to tumble.
Wanindu Hasaranga got rid of Kieron Pollard while Tilak Varma got out via a brilliant run out by Maxwell. Rohit was done in a Harshal delivery and Ishan Kishan also could not convert his start into a big one.
When all it seemed lost for MI, Suryakumar rose to the occasion and smashed a blistering knock. His 68 included 5 fours and 6 sixes.
He started off slow but once settled in, started playing his shots. In a moment, it appeared, he was playing on a different track than others.
MI fans could not keep calm as their favourite batter shone again, taking the team out of the trouble again.
