Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons fought hard, but in the end the 236-run target set by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) proved to be 39 runs too much for Mumbai Indians (MI) in Match 46 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at Wankhede, Mumbai, on Sunday. RCB are now No. 4 on the points table, while MI have dropped to the No. 6 position with a rather poor net run rate.

Earlier, a monumental 133 not out from AB de Villiers and a skilful 82 not out from Virat Kohli helped RCB thrash the hapless MI bowlers to all ends of the Wankhede as RCB scored a massive 235 for one. Chris Gayle’s early dismissal for 13 — he managed to hit a four and a six — did not hamper RCB too much. Updates: Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), IPL 2015 Match 46
