IPL 2023 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians, RCB's Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis showcased their batting prowess by bringing up their respective half-centuries in a solid chase of 172. The duo's partnership helped RCB cruise towards the target with ease, leaving MI struggling to find a breakthrough. RCB's top-order looked comfortable throughout the innings, with Kohli and du Plessis dominating MI's bowling attack with some sublime strokeplay. Their partnership eventually ended at 105 runs, with du Plessis departing for 56 off 42 balls, but the foundation had been set for RCB to go on and secure victory.

Earlier, MI had set a respectable total of 171/7 in their 20 overs thanks to a fiery knock from Tilak Varma. Despite losing wickets at regular intervals, Varma anchored the innings and remained unbeaten on 84 off just 46 balls. Nehal Wadhera also contributed with a quickfire 21 off 13 balls to ensure that MI had a decent total to defend.
