Mumbai Indians won by 4 wkts, player of the match was Kieron Pollard, who was scored 70 off 47 balls.
Samuel Badree’s hat-trick went in vain as fellow West Indian Kieron Pollard (70 off 47 balls) scored his first fifty of this IPL season to power Mumbai Indians defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by four wickets here at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday.
Chasing 143 runs to win, MI were reduced to 10-4 as Badree, who was playing his first game for RCB, scalped a hat-trick in the 3rd over.
To make the matters worse, Nitish Rana, who had scored 50 and 45 in his last two appearances for MI, got out for 11 as MI were 33/5 from 8 overs.
However, Pollard and Krunal put up a 93-run stand to set up a four-wicket win.
Earlier, MI bowlers put up their hands to restrict RCB to 142 despite comeback man Virat Kohli’s brisk 62. While Mitchell McClenaghan scalped two wickets, Harbhajan Singh and Krunal conceded just 44 runs from their 8 overs to deny RCB a chance to run away with advantage.
