Having AB de Villiers in your side means that he will win you matches single-handedly and that’s exactly what happened in RCB’s 39-run win over the in-form Mumbai Indians.
It was a match where AB showed the world why he is the best batsman across all formats as he hit a scintillating 133 of 59. Virat Kohli was his able supporter scoring a 50-ball 82.
Chasing 236 runs to win was always going to be beyond MI and Lendl Simmons (68*) and Kieron Pollard (49) could only take them to 196/7.
RCB are now in a very good position with 13 points from 11 matches and they need two wins from three matches to qualify. MI, on the other hand, need to win both their remaining matches.
