1- The biggest and first reason for Bangalore’s defeat was the absence of their captain Virat Kohli. RCB’s team came out to bat first after losing the toss and started well for the first wicket.
But after the first wicket fell, Bangalore captain Virat Kohli came to bat and he became a victim of Jasprit Bumrah by scoring only 9 runs, batting very poorly in this match.
2- The second reason for Bangalore’s loss was Mumbai pacer Jasprit Bumrah’s two wickets in the same over. In this match, Jasprit Bumrah completed 100 wickets in his IPL career.

3- The third reason for Bangalore losing was not getting enough runs in the death overs. Significantly, after a good start, there came a time when the RCB team seemed to easily surpass the score of 180 runs.
But in the death overs, his batsmen lost their wickets by playing the wrong shots. Due to which RCB team could score only 35 runs in the last 5 overs and also got 4 wickets.
4- The fourth reason for the RCB losing was not getting a wicket in the beginning. The Mumbai Indians team, chasing the target of 164 runs by RCB, both openers of the Mumbai team played a crucial partnership of 37 runs for the first Test.
Because of which Bangalore team came on the backfoot. Suryakumar, who came to bat after that, proved very deadly for RCB and gave his team victory by batting excellently.
And he bowled a lot of runs while bowling for Bangalore and he did not get any wickets. He plundered 43 runs in his 4-over spell and was the reason for RCB’s defeat.
