IPL 2021 Match 1 MI vs RCB Match 1st innings Report

After winning the toss for a long time, Royal Challenger Bangalore team captain Virat Kohli opted to bowl first thinking that, he can restrict the opposition Team Mumbai Indians for a low score. 

Rohit Sharma and Chris Lynn opened the innings for the Mumbai Indians. At the end of 3rd over, Chris Lynn got Rohit Sharma run out with a stupid call from him. 

When Suryakumar Yadav and Chris Lynn build a good partnership of  70 runs in 44 balls. Suryakumar Yadav got out by a ball from Jameison, while pulling a shot, the ball edged and carried to the wicketkeeper.

Then the MI young star player came to the crease when he is playing well and building a partnership with Chris Lynn. Chris Lynn got out, at one run short to 50. Then Hardik Pandya came and left very soon after playing 10 balls.

After that, the players came and gone like it's a cameo party. The so-called death over destructive batsman also left early.  At the end of 20 overs, the score is just 159/9. No one has a chance to hit the ball far in the last five overs, thanks to RCB bowler Harshal Patel.

The last over was a colossal mess for the Mumbai Indians, they lost four wickets in the last over. They gave three wickets to the new recruit Harshal Patel and a run-out in the last ball. 

Harshal proved himself by taking 4 wicket haul against the previous year champions. he didn't even flinch in the death overs. Especially, in the last over, he took three wickets which is really amazing for the young player.

If the Royal Challengers Bangalore won this match, it's because of Harshal Patel. If he didn't pick those wickets, the Mumbai Indians score would be around 190-200.
