Kishan and Yadav’s explosive half-centuries, along with Bumrah’s exceptional bowling, allowed Mumbai Indians to chase down RCB’s total of 196/8 with ease. This match marked the first instance in T20 cricket history where three batters scored half-centuries and a bowler took a fifer in the same innings.

Ishan Kishan’s explosive batting in the Power-play set the tone for Mumbai, racing to 72 runs in the first six overs. His quickfire half-century, supported by Rohit Sharma’s steady innings, paved the way for Suryakumar Yadav to continue the onslaught, ultimately securing Mumbai’s victory with his 17-ball fifty.
