After Mumbai Indians set a total of 159 runs on the scoreboard, Virat Kohli opened the second innings along with Washington Sundar. In 5th over, Washington Sundar 10 (16) was caught by Chris Lynn in the Kurnal Pandya's over.

Then the RCB rookie Patidar back to the pavilion after a short cameo in the Trent Boult's over. Then came the 'X' factor, Glenn Maxwell, he and Virat Kohli build a good partnership of 52 runs in 42 balls. I thought they both will complete the match in just 15 overs.

Then in the 13th over, Burmarh got Virat Kohli 33 (29) via an LBW. From then, the run rate went down for the two overs. After Kohli's wicket, Glenn Maxwell 39 (28) got out in the MI debut player Jansen.

Maxwell really played well in this innings like he has something to prove to himself. AB de Villers replaced Kohli and Shabaz Ahmed replaced Glenn Maxwell.

Shabaz got out for just 1 run in 2 balls in the same Jansen over where Maxwell got out. This wicket really placed the RCB in the tough spot, as no player is backing the AB de Villers.

Then Dan Christain replaced the Shabaz, he rotated the strikes and gave the AB d Villers the chance to hit the ball to score runs. He just stayed in the crease for 3 balls before J Bumrah got him. 

Then, Kyle Jamieson got run out, he was called by the AB de Villiers to get the strike for the next ball. As the ball is near to the bowler Bumrah, he hit the wickets. 

In the next over, AB de Villiers got run out in the process of taking two runs. Instead of running in a straight line, he ran a circle at the other end before coming to the crease, this made him lose time. Kurnal Panday passed the ball at the exact moment to Ishan Kishan.

Then, Harshal Patel and Mohammed siraj won the game by making the final run in the final ball. The match is taken to the last ball.

The Man of the Match goes to Harshal Patel for his debut 4 wicket haul against the Mumbai Indians in the first match of IPL.
