Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) coasted to a seven-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 on April 19. RCB were chasing a lowly 116-run target and got over the line in only 17.3 overs. Parthiv Patel top-scored with an unbeaten 57. AB de Villiers scored an entertaining 45 not out. This is RCB’s second win in two matches. Defending champions Mumbai have now lost two in two.
The run-chase did not begin all that well as the Bangalore batsmen were rocked by the Mumbai seamers. Lasith Malinga and Zaheer Khan took three quick wickets amongst them as RCB were at 17 for three after four overs. But an unbroken 99-run stand between Parthiv and de Villiers saw them cruise to an easy win.
