RCB vs MI: It was a clinical performance from the batsmen to chase down 173 in 19.2 overs with 8 wickets to spare. Skipper Virat Kohli led from the front with the bat scoring 67 from 53 deliveries and his partner in crime was none other then Ab de Villiers who ensured his team could manage to cross the line with an unbeaten 59 off 38 deliveries with 5 fours and 2 sixes.
Their current position on the points table is third which is considerable at this stage of the competition but a loss against Rajasthan Royals in their last game at Wankhede would have definitely dented their confidence level.
