It was the same old story for Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai, as they suffered another loss to make their playoff chances slimmer. Having lost the toss and put on to bat first, Bangalore lost Kohli early, but a big partnership between Moeen Ali and AB Devilliers helped them to post a par score on the board. Later, all the Mumbai batsmen played their part in the chase to give their team the fifth win of the season.
He once again enjoyed his time in Mumbai, as he came up with a crucial knock for his team when it was most needed.

In the end, he unleashed his range all around the park. He made 50.5 points in the match.
He set Wankhede on fire, as he came up with an all-round show. First up, he played a crisp half-century to make things easy for AB Devilliers and Bangalore when they were struggling to score freely.

He once again proved that class is permanent, as he showcased his unique skill to stop Bangalore momentum in the death overs. He was the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai, as he came up with 4 wickets which included crucial wickets of Moeen Ali and Marcus Stoinis. He made 46 points in the match.
