More misery for Mumbai Indians on Saturday as they slump to their fourth straight loss in IPL 2022. Invited to bat, Rohit Sharma (26) and Ishan Kishan (26) added 50 runs off 38 balls but MI suffered a collapse to slump to 62 for 5. However, Suryakumar Yadav hit a 37-ball 68 not out to lift the team to a respectable 151 for six. In reply, Royal Challengers Bangalore chased down the target, scoring 152 for 3 in 18.3 overs, riding on a half-century from Anuj Rawat (66) and Virat Kohli (48). For RCB, Harshal Patel (2/23) and Wanindu Hasaranga (2/28) were the top bowlers, while Akash Deep (1/20) also accounted for a wicket. Earlier on the day, Chennai Super Kings too suffered their fourth straight loss in the tournament. Get highlights of RCB vs MI.
It feels great to score runs and winning the game for the team. I was just following my process. I was starting well, wasn't able to finish well, did it today. Happy and enjoying the company of Virat and Faf.
Rohit Sharma (MI): We wanted to strengthen our batting, unfortunately, we had a few overseas guys who were unavailable, so we wanted to get the best from whatever we had. Definitely not a 150 pitch, Surya showed us if you bat sensibly, you can get more than what you got. I have always spoken of collective performance both from bat and ball, which seems to be missing at the moment. Once that comes through, I think we should be good.
Faf du Plessis (RCB): Mumbai is a strong team. Bowling tonight was really good. Probably for 18 overs excellent batting, was some quality batting at the end there. Very happy standing here.
Glenn Maxwell wins the game for RCB with two fours in as many overs. RCB win by 7 wickets. Fourth straight loss for Mumbai Indians.

A last-ball six in the over from Dinesh Karthik inches RCB to their another comfortable win in IPL 2022. RCB 144/2 (18)
Six Number Six for Anuj Rawat off Jaydev Unadkat. Certainly, the new RCB find. Rawat already hit Unadkat for two back-to-back maximums early in the game. Oh No. He falls short of the crease for 66. RCB 130/2 (16.4)

Suryakumar Yadav finishes with a six off Harshal Patel. From 79/6 in the 14th over to 151/6 in 20 overs - a brilliant comeback from the five-time champions, courtesy of a 37-ball 68 from SKY.
Unbelievable from SKY. He moves to 47 with a six off Mohammad Siraj over deep extra cover. 15th IPL fifty for Suryakumar Yadav. This is also his third T20 fifty in the last three games. He scored 52 against KKR and 65 against West Indies. And finishes the over with back-to-back sixes. MI 144/6 (19)
Two more fours added to Mumbai Indians total. Both From Suryakymar Yadav. How much can Mumbai get from here. MI 121/6 (18)

Tonked! Suryakumar Yadav dances down the track and slams Shahbaz Ahmed over deep extra-cover. Another four. SKY goes down on one knee and paddle-sweeps past the fielder at short fine-leg. Can SKY pull out Mumbai from this big hole? MI 92/6 (15)

The slower delivery does the trick for Harshal Patel. Rohit Sharma gives a simple return catch to Harshal for 26. Soft dismissal. This was also Harshal's second caught and bowled dismissal in IPL. Against MI, Harshal has taken 19 wickets in 11 games, including that of Rohit few minutes ago. MI 50/1 (6.2)
Rohit Sharma ends the powerplay with a beautiful four off Akash Deep through the covers. The Mumbai openers are ensuring a perfect platform for 'Baby AB' Dewald Brevis. MI 49/0 (6)

Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma open the batting for Mumbai Indians. As usual David Willey start for RCB. Willey concedes just a single. MI 1/0 (1)
For the first time in history, Mumbai Indians have fielded two overseas players in the playing XI. Dewald Brevis and Kieron Pollard are the only two foreigners in MI today. This is also the second time, a team has fielded only two overseas players in IPL. KKR did against CSK in 2011 while Delhi Capitals did the same against Mumbai Indians earlier in the ongoing edition.
Rohit Sharma (MI): The nature of the pitch looks like it would get better and better as the match goes on. We just need to try and apply ourselves a little more than we have done so far in the tournament. We have Jaydev Unadkat in place of Tymal Mills. Ramandeep Singh comes in for Daniel Sams.
Faf du Plessis (RCB): It is our first game here so we aren't sure what the pitch is going to do. Two wins out of three looks good. We have Glenn Maxwell coming in for Shanefane Rutherford.
Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma(c), Ishan Kishan(w), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Ramandeep Singh, Murugan Ashwin, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Basil Thampi
