Hello and welcome to the live coverage of match 31 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 edition wherein Mumbai Indians (MI) play host to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday (April 15). Rohit Sharma-led MI face bottom-lying side in Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the iconic Wankhede stadium after the hype surrounding India’s 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup 2019 comes to (some) rest. In the present scenario, MI are still well-placed, despite the loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR) at home, but will be wary of a firing RCB – who look charged up after their first win of the season versus Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday (April 13). If RCB get the better of MI at their fortress, it will be a huge morale booster for them.
However, MI’s head-to-head record versus RCB keeps them ahead prior to the commencement of the encounter.
MI vs RCB Live Score, Today IPL Match:
21:42 IST: An unlucky run-out saw the tame end of ABD’s heroics (75). In the end, RCB manage 171 for 7 in 20 overs as wickets tumble courtesy Malinga (4 for 31). Now, this is a good score surely but not a threatening total to challenge Mumbai Indians (MI) who chase well at the Wankhede Stadium. Nonetheless, a determined RCB may stop them in the second half.

IPL Live Score- RCB 163/4 after 19 overs.
21:30 IST: Tidy over as Lasith Malinga continues to bamboozle opponent batsmen with his change of pace as he gets rid of Moeen and Marcus Stoinis in quick succession. Some singles and misfields keep the over down to 8 runs but Rohit will be happy overall. IPL Live Score- RCB 152-4 after 18 overs.

21:16 IST: A big over this from RCB’s point of view. Moeen Ali has just thrashed Jason Behendroff in all corners like he is some part-timer. No respite for the Australian, who has been a part of Aussies’ World Cup squad, and he leaks 17 in the over. Momentum with RCB by all means. IPL Live Score- RCB 136/2 after 16 overs.
