Earlier put into bat, Bangalore got off to a flying start. But in the 11th over left arm spinner Krunal Pandya dismissed in-form Virat Kohli (33) and AB de Villiers (29) to bring Mumbai back into the game. Shane Watson (5) too didn't last long.

Sarfaraz Khan (28) and Head held on to guide the team to a respectable total. Jasprit Bumrah (3-31) and Krunal Pandya (2-27) were the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai.
