IPL 2021: RCB vs MI, Match 39 Highlights: Hattrick for Harshal as RCB notch up crushing 54-run win over MI

IPL 2021: RCB vs MI, Match 39 Live Updates: Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Mumbai Indians in Dubai

Bengaluru, Sept. 26: The Royal Challengers Bangalore notched up a crushing 54-run win over Mumbai Indians in match no. 39 of IPL 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.

Playing in the second match of the day, Virat Kohli-led Challengers were sent in to bat first. Mumbai got off to a good start, removing the in-form Devdutt Padikkal for a duck.

But thereon RCB skipper Virat Kohli, who became the fifth batter to reach 10,000 T20 runs, took control and put the Challengers in charge with a solid knock of 51 off 42. The RCB batsmen stepped up against the defending champions as Srikar Bharat played an important 32 off 24 to support his skipper from the other end.


Glenn Maxwell, who put up an all round show, played a scintillating knock of 56 off 37 to guide RCB to a solid 165/6. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult pulled it back for MI in the final two overs, picking up three wickets and giving away just 9 runs.

But that didn't hurt RCB much as the bowlers put up a clinical show. After Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock gave MI a flying start, the RCB bowling unit, led by Harshal Patel kept the defending champions in check as MI crumbled like a pack of cards.

Patel led the attack with four wickets, including a hattrick, while Chahal picked up three and Maxwell pocketed two to bowl out Mumbai for 111.

With the win RCB stayed third on the table with six wins from ten matches. Meanwhile MI slipped to seventh with four wins from ten matches.
