Here are the records broken.
Match: How did the match pan out?
RCB were off to a flier after MI invited them to bat.
The openers, Devdutt Padikkal and Aaron Finch shared an 81-run stand before Trent Boult dismissed the latter.
Later on, AB de Villiers' knock powered RCB to 201/3. He was duly supported by Shivam Dube at the end.
In reply, MI fell short despite heroic knocks by Ishan Kishan (99) and Kieron Pollard.
AB de Villiers: AB de Villiers continues his carnage against MI
AB de Villiers yet again showed why is he regarded as one of the greatest hitters in world cricket.
He raced to his 35th IPL fifty as RCB went past 200 in the match.
AB, who registered an unbeaten 55, smashed four sixes in the match.
His last three innings against MI read as- 70* (41), 75 (51), 55* (24).
Fact: ABD has been a nightmare for bowlers at the death
AB de Villiers was on a roll in the second half of RCB's innings today. Interestingly, in the last three innings against Mumbai Indians, he has tallied 108 runs from 42 balls at a prolific strike-rate of 257.14 at the death (16-20).
Virat Kohli: Kohli fails to deliver once again
The recent form of Virat Kohli leaves RCB in a spot of bother.
Against Mumbai Indians, he could muster only three runs from 11 balls.
In the ongoing season, he has managed to score only 18 runs off 29 deliveries and is yet to record his first boundary.
Notably, this is the lowest tally in his first three innings of an IPL season.
