Harshal Patel comes back to bowl the 16th over and gives away 9 runs. With 54 required from the remaining 4 overs, RCB are clear favorites. However, staranger things have happened in IPL before and you can't say anything for sure till the last ball.

RCB need to break this partnership, worth 64 already, for both Pollard and Rayudu are very capable of changing the game. Pollard with his big hitting and Rayudu had done it a couple of times this season already. Mumbai's hopes are pinged on these two now!

Just the kind of overs Mumbai need, Zak smashed for 16 runs in his 3rd over. A six to Rayudu, pull shot, over the midwicket boundary for maximum runs, and a boundary to Pollard on the fourth ball.

Rayudu continues his fireworks in Vinay Kumar's final over as well. Six-Four-Six and he has spoilt a very good spell from Vinay Kumar, 18 runs off his last over and Mumbai have made a very strong comeback thanks to Rayudu and Pollard. Can these two pull-off an upset win here?

The required run rate is down to 11.5 after two big overs. Zak to bowl his final one tonight. 23 required off 12 balls, very much possible!

Mumbai 149-5 after 18 overs, need 23 to win from 12 balls
