Twitter Reactions: Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers shine in 14-run victory over Mumbai Indians

Posted On

Royal Challengers Bangalore pacers blew away the Mumbai Indians’ top order before shining in the death overs to set up a much-needed 14-run win, which kept them alive in the IPL Play-offs race, in Bengaluru on Tuesday night.


Mumbai Indians bowlers had also exploited a difficult batting track but leaked a few runs towards to end to allow the hosts post 167 for seven, which was a fighting total under challenging conditions.

Virat Kohli (32) and Brendon McCullum (37) added 60 quick runs in the middle overs to help RCB recover from a slow start and Colin de Grandhomme (23 from 10) hit three sixes in the last over, bowled by fellow New Zealander Mitchell McClenaghan, to provide a flourishing finish to the RCB innings.


MI all-rounder Hardik Pandya (3/28) scalped three batsmen and effected a run out to stop the hosts from running away with a big total but it proved enough in the end as all Mumbai Indians managed was 153 for seven.

Twitterati were in awe to see the way RCB bowlers responded in a must-win game.

Here are some of the best Twitter reactions:
