21:02 hrs IST: Edge and four. Rohit Sharma nears his fifty with some luck. RCB continue to leak runs.

20:59 hrs IST: WICKET - Finally, RCB get the wicket. Corey Anderson bowls a scrambled length delivery and Lewis gets an almighty top edge, Quinton de Kock runs back and the catch is taken. Evin Lewis c Quinton de Kock b Corey Anderson 65 (42).

20:55 hrs IST: The partnership between Rohit and Lewis has gone past 100 and it is notched up in style, with the left-hander thrashing Chahal over deep backward square leg for a 79-meter six. This is tremendous hitting.

20:49 hrs IST: Rohit ups t he ante with two consecutive fours off Corey Anderson, both through extra cover. Virat Kohli is getting a bit worried.

20:47 hrs IST: Lewis brings up his maiden fifty in the Indian Premier League with a massive slog sweep of Yuzvendra Chahal to deep backward square leg.

20:42 hrs IST: Rohit launches Washington Sundar straight down the ground for his first six and ends the over poorly with Lewis pulling a short ball to the deep backward square leg fence. His two overs have leaked 32 runs so far.

20:39 hrs IST: Only three runs in Mohammed Siraj’s second over. Can RCB tighten their bowling?

20:32 hrs IST: The boundaries are flowing for Mumbai Indians. Lewis steers a slow back of a length off-cutter to the third man fence to near his fifty. After the end of the powerplay, Mumbai Indians have scored 60 runs. Good recovery this.

20:27 hrs IST: The partnership between Rohit and Lewis has gone past fifty thanks to five wides from Siraj. Things slipping away from RCB after a good start. Gets even worse for the right-arm pacer as the off-cutter is late cut past backward point for a boundary. 35 runs in the last two overs.

20:24 hrs IST:Poor start for Mohammed Siraj. Short ball on leg stump and Lewis mauls the pull over deep mid wicket for his second six.

20:21 hrs IST: Horror start this for Washington Sundar. Rohit crunches a short ball through cover, then Lewis dispatches a full ball over extra cover, then the bowler, under pressure, concedes five wides and gives away yet another boundary to fine leg. 19 runs in the Tamil Nadu youngster’s first over

20:15 hrs IST: Lewis gets another boundary as Umesh bowls a short ball down leg side and the batsman helps it along the way to the fine leg fence.

20:11 hrs IST: Rohit Sharma starts off with a boundary by lofting Chris Woakes over extra cover. That should ease the pressure. Lewis responds a couple of balls later with a pulled six over deep mid wicket. Contrasting start for Woakes.

20:06 hrs IST: Ends a fantastic over from Umesh Yadav. Two runs and two wickets and Mumbai Indians are already on the back foot. But, they can still bounce back.

20:04 hrs IST: No hat-trick for Umesh but this is a sensational start. He has recovered from the mauling against Sanju Samson in style.

20:03 hrs IST: Fantastic stuff. Umesh again gets this delivery full and this time it curves back in to the left-hander Ishan Kishan, the ball detonates the off stump out of the ground. Ishan Kishan b Umesh Yadav 0 (1).

20:01 hrs IST: Brilliant start for Umesh Yadav. Pitching the delivery full and nipping it back off the seam, Suryakumar goes for the big booming drive but leaves a gap between bat and pad, the ball sneaks past and hits the top of off stump. Suryakumar Yadav b Umesh Yadav 0 (1).

20:00 hrs IST: Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav are opening for Mumbai Indians. The duo stitched a 102-run stand for the opening wicket against Delhi Daredevils. Umesh Yadav will open for RCB.

19:34 hrs IST: Mumbai Indians have brought in Mitchell McClenaghan for Akila Dananjaya. Here are the playing XIs.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Quinton de Kock(w), Virat Kohli(c), AB de Villiers, Mandeep Singh, Corey Anderson, Sarfaraz Khan, Washington Sundar, Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj

Mumbai Indians: Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman

19:31 hrs IST: Royal Challengers Bangalore have chosen to bowl against Mumbai Indians. They have made three changes. Brendon McCullum is out and Corey Anderson comes in. Kulwant Khejroliya has been replaced by Mohammed Siraj

19:23 hrs IST: The contest between these two sides is like a reverse fortress. RCB have a great record at the Wankhede while MI have enjoyed tremendous success at M Chinnaswamy stadium. Only last year, the trend was reversed with the three-time champions winning both games.

19:15 hrs IST: For Royal Challengers Bangalore, a change of squad and personnel has not dispelled their notion of deja-vu. This new squad still has the same problems of the old - Reliance on the top four, weak middle order and inconsistent bowling. A loss today will make their prospects of a top four finish problematic.

19:11 hrs IST: A warm welcome to the game between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore from the Wankhede stadium. Rohit Sharma’s side have lost all three games while Virat Kohli’s team lost two games comprehensively, with one win coming against Kings XI Punjab.

The IPL’s infamous slow-starters Mumbai Indians were finally able to put an end to their batting blues when they hammered 194/7 against Delhi Daredevils (DD) in their last match. But a sublime half-century from Jason Roy dashed Mumbai’s hopes of a win last weekend.

The move to send local boy Suryakumar Yadav at the top worked wonders as he added 102 for the first wicket with opener Evin Lewis.

With his current form, Suryakumar, who has scores of 43, 28 and 53, makes an ideal opening pair with Lewis. But MI would be concerned with the form of their captain Rohit, who has not been able to convert his starts, falling for 15, 11 and 18.

On paper, sixth-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore’s batting looks as threatening as it could get but so far with two defeats and one win, the Kohli-led team has not found its rhythm either.

Bludgeoned by Rajasthan Royals batsman Sanju Samson’s 92* on Sunday, RCB’s famed batting line-up consisting Kohli, AB de Villiers, Brendon McCullum and Quinton de Kock could not deliver the goods at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

With only two fifties among the famous four in three matches so far, RCB batsmen would know how important it is for them to make most of the batting conditions at th e Wankhede as their bowlers have done a decent job so far.
