India captain Kohli passed fit to play in IPL

Facing the hat-trick ball, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma couldn't tackle a googly, which wrecked the stumps, to put Badree's name against the 15th hat-trick in IPL history. This was the 15 hat-trick taken in IPL history, the last of which was taken by Axar Patel against the Gujarat Lions previous year. He dug his team out of the abyss with a 93-run sixth-wicket partnership with Krunal Pandya (37 not out off 30).

Mumbai went into the innings break having the upper hand after limiting RCB to 142 for five despite Virat Kohli striking a classy 62 off 47 balls in his first competitive outing in almost a month. When Panya and Pollard came together in the eighth over, following the departure of Nitesh Rana, Mumbai was still 112 runs adrift from Bangalore's total.

It was a remarkable effort by the West Indian, considering he picked all those three wickets in the Powerplay.

A head-height short bowl did the trick for Mumbai as Gayle was caught by wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel when he tried to pull the ball.

Pollard's knock was praised by Mumbai Indians team-mate Mitchell McClenaghan as the best knock ever.

7 Mumbai Indians' score at the fall of the fourth wicket - the worst start for any side in the IPL that went on to win the match. The legspinner heralded his return with staggering figures of four for nine. "Credit needs to be given to Pollard and Krunal the way they batted with maturity", said Badree.

For RCB, the next two games give them an opportunity to get four points against two of the relatively unsettled side in the tournament - Pune and Gujarat.

Pollard smashed 70 in just 47 balls to propel Mumbai back into the game. He trained with his IPL team, Royal Challengers Bangalore, on Wednesday and Thursday, and struck the ball cleanly in the nets.

Pandya led the onslaught and slapped a quicker one from Yuzvendra Chahal for six over long-on in the 10th over.

Earlier, RCB failed to capitalise on the good work done by Kohli, managing just 31 runs off the last five overs and lost four wickets.

Virat Kohli has fully recovered from the shoulder injury that kept him out since the Ranchi Test against Australia last month. A week ago, Manjrekar, responding to a fellow commentator's question, called Pollard a "six-seven-overs-left-inthe- innings batsman" who doesn't have the "versality to pick singles if the boundaries are not coming". The platform looked set for a late-innings onslaught with Kohli having reached his first fifty of this year's IPL in his first game.

But before that Virat Kohli produced his trade mark shots forcingthe ball to the gaps with forceful shots and over that hoped RCBadvance to 110 for 2 in the 16 over despite slow progress. If Gayle makes the XI, then RCB - with Virat back in the mix, and AB de Villiers also back in the ranks - will be a formidable batting line-up.
