After Mumbai limited the hosts to just 11 runs in the first three overs, Manan Vohra got Bangalore going as he racked up 45 runs in 31 balls.

Quinton de Kock would muster just seven from 13, though, which included a six, and none of Vohra's team-mates were able to surpass his benchmark.

Brendon McCullum came closest with 37, while Virat Kohli took 32. RCB's batting struggles left them on 143 heading into the final over, but a late flourish that included three sixes from Colin de Grandhomme salvaged a slightly more respectable score.

Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle remarked on the final over, while statistician Mohandas Menon put Bangalore's score in context:

Harsha Bhogle @bhogleharsha

I do believe that last over has opened this game up completely. Such a big game and it is wide open. You would rather have runs on the board on this surface.

Mohandas Menon @mohanstatsman

In a nightmarish start for Mumbai, Ishan Kishan was bowled for a golden duck in the first over of their innings. Rohit Sharma suffered the same fate in the second ball of the third over, immediately after Suryakumar Yadav had been dismissed for nine.

Hardik Pandya was able to reach 50 off 42 balls, and the Indians were also helped by 23 extras—the same total managed by JP Duminy and Krunal Pandya—but a wicket in each of the final two overs hindered their momentum when they needed it most.

Reigning champions Mumbai must now win all of their remaining matches to reach the play-off stage.
