Bowlers and Kerr Propel MI to Top with Seven-Wicket Win

Mumbai Indians Dominate Royal Challengers Bangalore, Claim Third Win of the Season

Mumbai Indians showcased their dominance against Royal Challengers Bangalore, securing a convincing seven-wicket victory at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. This win propelled them to the top of the points table with six points from four games, while RCB suffered their third consecutive loss in the WPL.

RCB’s Struggle with the Bat

RCB struggled to a modest total of 131/6 on a challenging pitch. Despite a valiant unbeaten 44 by Ellyse Perry, RCB’s innings lacked momentum. A wobbly start saw them at 34/3 in the powerplay, with Issy Wong and Nat Sciver-Brunt making early breakthroughs.

Perry and Wareham Lead a Recovery

Perry’s gritty innings, supported by Georgia Wareham’s quickfire 27, helped RCB recover to 131/6. However, they missed the opportunity to score more runs in the final overs.

MI’s Clinical Chase

In response, MI had a strong start, with Yastika Bhatia’s quick 31 setting the tone. Despite losing a couple of wickets, MI’s chase was anchored by a brilliant unbeaten 40 from Amelia Kerr, who ensured victory with 4.5 overs to spare.

Brief Scores: RCB 131/6 (Perry 44; Vastrakar 2-14, Sciver-Brunt 2-27) lost to MI 133/3 in 15.1 overs (Kerr 40; Devine 1-16) by 7 wickets
