Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard played unbelievable knocks as the IPL Match between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore was tied, triggering the Super Over to come into play. Royal Challengers Bangalore pulled off a thrilling win in the Super Over.
Earlier, batting first, Royal Challengers Bangalore had made 201-3 in their quota of 20 overs.

Young Devdutt Padikkal once again rose to the challenge and made another fifty as he made 54 in 40 balls. Aaron Finch made 52 in 35 balls. Skipper Virat Kohli once again failed to shine with the bat as he made just three runs after facing 11 deliveries.
Mumbai Indians’ start was disastrous as they lost Rohit Sharma cheaply for 8 when the team’s total was just 14 after 1.4 overs. Suryakumar Yadav was next to go without bothering the scorer in the next over as Mumbai Indians found themselves reduced to 16-2.
