But before this, the team of Mumbai Indians could not score many runs in their final overs, due to which they had to face defeat.
3- Mumbai Indians team lost 3 batsmen in their last over and could only score 1 run. Mumbai Indians got off to a brisk start in the first 10 overs but Mumbai’s runs were curbed after Chris Lynn was dismissed.

Chris Lynn, who was batting brilliantly for Mumbai, was sent to the pavilion by RCB spin bowler Washington Sundar. Even after this, Mumbai’s batting had a lot of depth.
