The Australian followed it by scalping two crucial wickets with the ball in hand.

“It was a nice day. We pretty much did everything right tonight. Virat and KS got us through the powerplay and set up a platform for us. I have worked on it a lot over the years and it has become a strength for me. I wanted to cash in hitting to the shorter side with the wind going that way as well,” he said post-match.

“To be able to have a full pre-season with my stateside Victoria, put in a lot of work on my bowling and starting to see the rewards now. Hopefully, people can stay safe, get vaccinated and we can travel around the world again and be nice and free,” he added.

This is for the first time that RCB has done the double over MI in a season in IPL. With this heavy 54-run loss, Mumbai had suffered a blow to their NRR and now the defending champions are in serious danger of not making the playoffs.
