Virat Kohli’s 92 went in vain eventually, as the RCB skipper’s superb innings counted for little after his side’s disappointing loss.
RCB started off well, but their batting disintegrated in a few overs, as Kohli was left to watch his team mates throw their wickets away.
Tonight was a historic night for Kohli on a personal level, as he went past Suresh Raina to become the leading run scorer in IPL history.
Kohli also picked up the ‘Orange Cap’ along the way, as the RCB skipper became the leading run scorer for this season.
But that did not make him less upset after the match, as Kohli was not happy with his team mates after the loss.
“It was a good game of cricket as far as Mumbai were concerned. I don’t feel like wearing this (orange cap) right now because it really doesn’t matter. We got off to a great start but we just threw it away, and need to reflect on our dismissals. We knew there would be a little bit of dew, we needed not your 40-45s but 80-85s.
“In the end it was all about making sure that the run-rate doesn’t take a hit; credit to Mumbai though, they bowled really well. We didn’t get any chances, we bowled in the areas we thought were good but they counter-attacked well.
“When you have your backs against the wall you do come out with a performance like this and that’s what they did. Even after they were two wickets down they showed resilience like good teams do. We tried our hardest but we just couldn’t get wickets in the middle stages.”
