The Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team has lost to the Bangalore Royal Challengers in the IPL T20 cricket match

_MG_8320 zaheer khanTo say that the Mumbai Indians lost to the Bangalore Royal Challengers is an understatement. The Mumbai Indians were simply outclassed in all departments of the game by firstly some cool Bangalore bowling led by Anil Kumble, the best Indian bowler ever

After restricting the Mumbai Indians to a paltry score of 151 runs, Kallis and Manish Pandey made a mockery of the strong Mumbai Indians bowling attack led by Malinga and Zaheer Khan to knock off 70+ runs for the opening wicket in no time

Barring Zaheer Khan, no Mumbai Indians bowler could make an impact against the Bangalore Royal Challengers batting as the Mumbai Indians cut a really sorry figure and couldnt make a fight of the key IPL T20 cricket match

Sachin Tendulkar’s Mumbai Indians struggled against some amazing bowling by Kumble’s Bangalore Royal Challengers in IPL T20 2010

The Mumbai Indians recovered a bit after the early loss of Sanath Jayasuriya due to some classy batting by Sachin Tendulkar and tremendous hits by SS Tiwari. However, great bowling by Vinay Kumar and Anil Kumble pegged the Mumbai Indians back

The Mumbai Indians lost 4 wickets in the space of 7 balls to be out on the mat against the Bangalore Royal Challengers

The Mumbai Indians slumped from 76/2 to 79/6 as the Bangalore Royal Challengers bowlers Vinay Kumar and Anil Kumble grabbed four wickets in no time, including that of Sachin Tendulkar and Dwayne Bravo.

Sachin Tendulkar’s Mumbai Indians were really pegged back by a classy bowling display by the Bangalore Royal Challengers captain Anil Kumble who ended with figures of 4-0-18-1, which is really amazing for a T20 cricket match

Sathish and Pollard helped the Mumbai Indians recover against the rampaging Bangalore Royal Challengers

Sathish and Pollard did help the Mumbai Indians recover to some extent with some controlled hitting, with Pollard clocking his first 20+ score for the Mumbai Indians batting. However, Pollard hit a Steyn full toss straight to sweeper cover to have the Mumbai Indians struggling even more

Zaheer Khan, the batsman provided the final impetus for the Mumbai Indians against Bangalore Royal Challengers

Zaheer Khan hit Praveen Kumar for 16 runs in the last over to give the Mumbai Indians bowlers a reasonable score to defend. One scorching six by Zaheer Khan for the Mumbai Indians was a treat to watch

The Mumbai Indians need to ensure that they dont get demoralized by this loss to the Bangalore Royal Challengers and keep on fighting in the remaining IPL T20 2010 league matches
