Cricket News: Reactions to the MI vs RCB IPL 2024 clash at Wankhede Stadium, where MI won by seven wickets with 27 balls to spare

“I feel like from a batting perspective, we have to push for that 200,” said RCB captain Faf du Plessis in the post-match presentation. “We don’t have as many weapons in our bowling.”

However, even with 220, RCB may have struggled to contain a firing MI lineup, who sealed a second-straight win to get their IPL 2024 campaign up and running. They made extremely light work of what looked to be a competitive 196, reaching the target with seven wickets and a mammoth 27 balls to spare.

Dinesh Karthik, with his superb 23-ball 53*, was the standout on another disappointing night for RCB. Faf du Plessis did his best with a 40-ball 61, but he and his teammates had little answer to the magnificent Jasprit Bumrah, who finished with 5/21.

Bumrah’s bowling is a cheat code. The fast bowler executes at will, leaving batsmen clueless as to not only which delivery is coming, but how to deal with it. Karthik was left needing to attack the other bowlers as Bumrah conceded just 14 runs in his two death overs. RCB’s finisher did a mighty fine job, but 196 was nowhere near enough in the end.

First, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan took RCB apart with 101 in 8.5 overs with du Plessis a lone figure trying halt the carnage before his eyes. That carnage soon became utter chaos as Suryakumar Yadav tucked into the listless RCB bowling attack, smashing 52 off 19 balls to hand MI a handy net run rate boost.

It doesn’t get any easier for RCB. Next up is Sunrisers Hyderabad at the batting-friendly Chinnaswamy. They then travel to Eden Gardens to face the powerful KKR followed by Sunrisers Hyderabad again away from home.

MI, who have won two straight games, host CSK in a blockbuster clash on Sunday.
