MI Won The Game Which They Would Like To Forget


Mumbai Indians have not done particularly well in this season of IPL. This is their only second win after losing 5 games on the trot. They have no option but to win all the remaining games. Royal Challengers Bangalore on the other hand is having a tense season as they started well but now have lost their way in the middle despite winning that epic game against SRH last time. Hence both the teams wanted to win this game badly but they lost the control over their minds in the process. After Yuzvendra Chahal unnecessarily gave Corey Anderson a send off the ugly spat between Mitchell Starc and Kieron Pollard surfaced which should have been avoided at any cost. There is a fair play award in the competition and one can be rest assured that both MI and RCB would have lost a plenty on that score board too.
