RCB v RPS Preview: RCB looks to hit reset | VIVO IPL 2017

The entire team, in the second innings, had nearly thought that are through the game after Samuel Badree got an hat-trick and dismissed Parthiv Patel Mitchell McClenaghan and Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma.

Pollard, who hit three fours and five sixes in his aggressive knock, shared 93 runs for the sixth wicket to set up Mumbai's comfortable win at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

McClenaghan, ostensibly promoted to use his left-handedness to go after Badree, slogged a full-toss straight to long-on, and Rohit, for the second time in two matches, was deceived by a googly.

RCB would also like to pin hopes on their bowlers, especially spinners Badree, Yuzuvendra Chahal and Pawan Negi. The Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - were at their suffocating best.

House Republicans near potential breakthrough on health care, source says
It's not just Trump - congressional Republicans are eyeing a new push for health care reform in the near future. One problem is that no one has actually seen the amendments, at least not in legislative-language form.

Mumbai's chase was only possible as they had a small target to chase.

Though Mumbai Indians played without their experienced pacer Lasith Malinga, their other bowlers bowled to their potential as Bangalore wasted a solid start given by skipper Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. Kohli picked up a shoulder injury in the India - Australia test series while fielding and missed the last test of the series due to that. So far though, RCB have failed to touch the 200-run mark at home and that will be cause for concern.

All this while his opening partner Chris Gayle (22 off 27) was not unable to unleash the big hits he is known for. Stokes bowled a brilliant bouncer to Kohli, which he tried to flat-bat down on the ground, but the ball took a top edge and was easily caught by Ajinjya Rahane few meters inside the boundary rope.

This match will feature the top-ranked batsmen in the three formats of global cricket; Steven Smith tops the Test ranking charts, AB de Villiers sits on the perch of the ODI ranking charts, while ViratKohli is the top-ranked batsman in T20Is. Ominous signs for MI as Kohli has marched past fifty.

Trump predicts Paris attack will affect French presidential election
Fillon promised to boost police and military forces. "Other policemen engaged and shot and killed the attacker", he added. Marine Le Pen wants to become the next president of France, but people have very different opinions about her.

For Mumbai, McClenaghan scalped two wickets for 20 runs in four overs while Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya chipped in with one wicket each. The skipper had added 47 runs for the second wicket with de Villiers. AB de Villiers departs off Krunal Pandya's bowling for the 3rd time.

In the middle-order, Kedar Jadhav was run out for nine runs, while Mandeep Singh went back to pavilion for a duck.

Gayle has outstanding numbers against the frontline Rising Pune legspinners - he has scored 51 off 30 deliveries against Imran Tahir and 44 off 16 balls against Zampa, in the CPL and the Big Bash League. Perhaps the most important ball of that over, however, was a dot - the last ball, to Gayle.

Searches underway in attack on Paris police
One police officer was killed and two others were wounded when a gunman opened fire on the Champs-Élysées on Thursday night. President Donald Trump responded to reports of a shooting Thursday in Paris by saying it looked like a terrorist attack.
