Their wins are completely team performance; both bowling and batting. They had defended low score and also chased the mammoth total. In last match against Gujarat Lions, Mumbai Indians won in Super Over, this may be concern as batting order looked little bit flop compared to bowling, they were not able to chase 153 at Rajkot. While Mumbai Indians is coming from the win; but would be surely introspecting their performance.

Royal Challengers Bangalore has almost out of the IPL 2017; only miracle can make them qualify for play-offs. This has been the worst downfall for the RCB. Their strength had let them down. RCB the strongest batting side on the paper and the strongest by performance till last season has nothing left this season. With the likes of Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers and the team is all-out for 49 runs, lowest by team in IPL history. Their bowler looked more powerful this season, they were leading the team; vice-versa of last season.
