Here are some important moments in the first match of the Indian Premier League between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
 
Harshal Patel's last over

First, let us talk about Harshal Patel, A right-arm seamer with a big outswinger from Gujarat who just took control of the death overs yesterday with his balls. In his last over, he took 4 wickets, including a run out in the last ball.

In the last four overs of Mumbai Indians innings, the team managed to score only 32 runs and lost 6 wickets. The usual Mumbai Indians used score no less than 60-70 runs in the death overs.

But this time the team found it hard even to rotate the strike. The death overs specialist batsman from the Mumbai Indians Keiron Pollard, Hardik Pandya find it hard to connect the balls. Their combined score is just 20 (19)

Coming to the last over, Mumbai Indians messed up it big time with no runs scored in this over. The star of this Innings is Harshal Patel with his superb bowling.

Rohit Sharma run out


At the end of the 4th over Rohit Sharma got out with a huge mixup from the striker Chris Lynn. After a good googly from the Y Chahal, the striker Chris Lynn made a call to the non-striker Rohit Sharma to run. 

But in the midway, Lynn changed his decision and returned back as the ball didn't pass the inner circle.
In this process, Rohit Sharma got out 19(15). You can see the frustration of Rohit Sharma after he got out. Quinton de Kock missing from the game is really bad luck for Rohit Sharma.

Chris Lynn's Knock


After the bad call, Chris Lynn 49(35) really played a good knock with a little help from Suryakumar Yadav 31 (23). They both build a good partnership of 70 runs in 44 balls.

Chris hit 4x4's and 3x6's as an opener for Mumbai Indians before giving his wicket to Washington Sundar. By the end of the innings, Mumbai Indians scored 159/9 by messing the last over.

Marco Jansen 15th over



With Virat Kohli, Washington Sundar opened the second innings. In just a few balls, Kurnal Pandya got the first wicket of W Sundar 10 (16) and then after a short cameo Rajat Patidar got out 8(8). Then Glenn Maxwell came to the crease. They both build a good partnership of 52 runs in 42 balls.

Glenn is sending the ball to boundaries in all directions. There is a good cop and bad cop situation on the ground. Maxi is hitting and Kohli is rotating the strike.

Virat departed in the Bumrah 13th over for LBW. Then in the Marco Jansen 15th over, he departs Glenn Maxwell and the Shabaz Ahmed in the same over.

AB de Villier Superb Knock


Ab de Villiers came in the middle order than in the top order. That changed in the batting lineup is really thoughtful as the young batsmen in the top order of the RCB line failed drastically.

Once he came into the field, he started swinging the bat. Eventhough he cost a wicket for a rookie batsman, he did what has to be done at that moment. 

The non-strikers didn't hold their wicket when the AB de Villiers is batting. Mumbai Indians targeted the non-strikers instead of AB. This plan of action really changed his perspective and knocked the ball hard.

In the last moment when he tried to get two runs, he got run out due to a silly mistake. Kurnal Pandya didn't waste any time throwing the ball to the wicket-keeper.
