Dhawal Kulkarni had a struggling Tillakaratne Dilshan (13) caught by Johnson at third man to give MI their first wicket. Harbhajan Singh then struck the body blow having Gayle (18) top-edge to Ambati Rayudu in the deep.

Arun Karthik (12) was then stumped beautifully off Harbhajan for his second wicket. Dwayne Smith then struck twice dismissing Tiwary (23) and Syed Mohammad (9) in quick succession. R Vinay Kumar(26*) and Ravi Rampaul (22*) delayed the inevitable putting on 51 run for the eighth wicket. RCB eventually fell 58 runs short.

Smith dismissed Kumar for two sixes in the 9th over as MI plundered 19 runs from it.

Kieron Pollard launched Syed Mohammad for two massive sixes in the 15th over before taking apart RP Singh's 17th for 17 runs. MI lost three wickets off successive deliveries in the 18th over; Karthik (43) and Rayudu (0) were run out by Kohli before Kumar had Pollard (34) caught by Rampaul. Harbhajan (16) hit three boundaries off RP Singh as MI finished at 194 for 7.
