AB de Villiers has been dismissed in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. De Villiers is facing a monumental task in the run-chase of 210, but if there is anyone who could do it, it is de Villiers. Chris Gayle‘s early knock of 11 off 24 balls hit RCB hard early on. LIVE UPDATES: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians

AB de Villiers was batting with a huge task in front and RCB needed him to come good. However, he then got out as he holed out to Kieron Pollard. He scored 41 in 11 balls, which was quite a remarkable innings in the circumstances. RCB will look back and introspect at the game and think that the poor start certainly did them no good.

RCB had won the toss and had chosen to bowl first. They had put MI in, who went on to score 209 with some valuable contributions coming right through. Both sides made numerous changes to their side.
