IPL 2018: Ishan Kishan hit IN THE FACE by throw and left with nasty injury

Yuzvendra Chahal hadn't completed his quota twice in three games this season.

In the run-chase, Kohli was the only batsman to show any fight as he hit 92 not out but his team fell way short of the target as they ended on 167/8.

Here's a look at how the all the 22 players fared in Tuesday's match. Virat and ABD have stacked unbelievable numbers at the Wankhede Stadium and if they produce something of a similar scale, Mumbai 's wait for their maiden win in the ongoing season will have to extend. Caribbean Evin Lewis played the supporting role as he found some form this season, scoring 65 runs fo 42 balls. Kohli now has 4,619 runs from 153 matches in IPL. However, past them the likes of Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Pawan Negi and Washington Sundar do not have the experience of playing the role of designated finishers in the side. "Once he gets a start, it's hard to bowl at him". He hopes to get the plans executed perfectly in the fixtures to come.

Bumrah kept it neat and tidy during his first spell. They went for a combined 53 off their eight overs and picked up four wickets between them.

Mayank Markande, the new legspinning sensation, Jasprit Bumrah and Krunal Pandya have impressed so far, but MI are still searching for their flawless bowling combination. RCB can use him to open the innings alongside de Kock if they want Kohli and AB de Villiers to control the shaky middle-order.

The junior Pandya once again did what he is known for.

MI scored a total of 213 runs for the loss of six wickets in their 20 overs. "In the end it was all about making sure that the run-rate doesn't take a hit; credit to Mumbai though, they bowled really well".

Umesh began in a terrific way with back-to-back wickets off consecutive deliveries in the first over. Washington Sundar's first over summed up RCB's bowling performance. Later, Samson came up and scored unbeaten 92 runs. The visitors were to give away a staggering 16 runs in wides.

Terming the freak injury to wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan as "unfortunate", Rohit said he is expected to be fine. However, Lewis, the way he batted in the first six overs, it did not look like that. After his dismissal Rohit, who flopped in the first three games, took over the lead role to hammer 94 in 52 balls before departing off the penultimate ball, caught at long on. As per the recent quotes in Sportstarlive, RCB pacer Chris Woakes has admitted that the team requires a lot of improvement in many areas. This is the third time this IPL Umesh has taken wickets in quick succession. Lewis was out by former teammate of Mumbai Indians, Corey Anderson. He managed only five runs off six deliveries before falling prey to Markande's bowling. Yet, something or other doesn't match up costing them the match. He didn't cause any sort of trouble for the Bangalore batsmen and conceded a massive 32 runs in his two overs.
