The clash between RCB and MI showcased the essence of T20 cricket, with momentum swinging back and forth throughout the match. While Mumbai initially dominated proceedings, RCB’s resilience and determination turned the tide in their favor, culminating in a thrilling victory.

With this win, the Smriti Mandhana-led Royal Challengers Bangalore have set up a tantalizing final showdown with the Delhi Capitals. Delhi, who secured a direct berth in the final by finishing at the top of the points table, will now face a formidable RCB side hungry for glory.
