Rohit Sharma played a captains knock as Mumbai Indians chalked up their second win of the IPL campaign with a six-wicket victory at home to Royal Challengers Bangalore. The India star (62 from 44 balls) hit his second fifty of the season before Englands Jos Buttler fired a rapid 28 off 14 deliveries as the defending champions trumped Bangalores 170-7 with 12 balls in the bank following back-to-back defeats to Gujarat Lions and Sunrisers Hyderabad earlier in the week.Slow left-armer Krunal Pandya (2-27) had dented Bangalores knock by dismissing Virat Kohli (33 from 30) and AB de Villiers (29 from 21) in the 11th over and bright, late cameos from youngsters Travis Head (37 from 24) and Sarfaraz Khan (28 from 18) proved in vain as the visitors slipped to a second defeat in a row. Marcus North and Rob Key were impressed with the nature of Mumbai Indians win over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Bangalore were shorn of Chris Gayle at Wankhede Stadium after the Jamaican flew home for the birth of his first child, with Kohlis team making six changes to the XI that lost to a Quinton de Kock-inspired Delhi Daredevils last time out.Gayles replacement, Lokesh Rahul (23 from 14), provided ample entertainment, cracking two fours and two sixes from the four balls immediately before he clipped Mitchell McClenaghan - who had earlier struck him on the helmet - to slip.Kohli and De Villiers came into the game on the back of successive fifties against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi, and threatened to pass the milestone again as they shared a stand of 59 for the second wicket in 39 deliveries. Krunal Pandya dismissed Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers However, the pair fell to Pandya in the space of five balls - Kohli caught at long-off, De Villiers stumped - while Shane Watson made just five before edging Jasprit Bumrah (3-31) behind as Bangalore lost three wickets for eight runs.Head, though, impressed on his IPL debut, the Australian left-hander - who creamed a century for Adelaide Strikers in this years Big Bash - adding 63 from 34 balls with the inventive Sarfaraz prior to being run out in the final over. Heads team-mate and countryman, Kane Richardson, then picked up a wicket with his first ball for Bangalore, the seamer forcing Parthiv Patel (5) to skew to De Villiers at point at the start of the second over.Sharma and Rayudu (31 from 23), however, soon found their rhythm, combining to amass 79 runs from 55 deliveries before they fell to the spin of Iqbal Abdulla (3-40) in the 11th and 13th overs respectively.Buttler became Abdullas third victim in the 16th after smiting the slow left-armer for successive sixes down the ground from the previous two balls, leaving Kieron Pollard (40no from 19) to pummel Mumbai over the line, the West Indian clubbing four boundaries and three maximums.Catch more IPL action on Thursday as unbeaten Gujarat Lions face Eoin Morgan and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Supergiants. Supergiants, who are captained by MS Dhoni and play reigning champions Mumbai Indians in Saturdays IPL opener, have picked up a player in decent nick, too.Pietersen has shone over the last 12 months for Surrey, Melbourne Stars and St Lucia, as well as in his native South Africa and the subcontinent.Read below for the story of Pietersens year with the bat - and then catch full live coverage of the IPL on Sky Sports.County Championship Division Two (Surrey) Pietersen scored a maiden triple hundred for Surrey against Leicestershire Innings: 6Runs: 469Hundreds: 1Highest Score: 355noPietersen missed last terms IPL in order to play for Surrey and try to earn his England place back - and he promptly amassed the highest score of his career. KP made an unbeaten 355, which contained 36 fours and 15 sixes and came off a mere 396 deliveries, while batting against Leicestershire at The Oval in May, but his mood was soured shortly after when, following a meeting with newly-appointed director of England cricket Andrew Strauss, he was told trust issues were impeding his return to the international set-up. Pietersen batted in just one further first-class innings for Surrey in 2015, making two against Lancashire, before he headed to the Caribbean…Caribbean Premier League (St Lucia Zouks) KP enjoys playing in the Caribbean. He won the World T20 there, dont forget! Innings: 10Runs: 295Fifties: 2Highest Score: 83noA zouk, if you didnt know, is a carnival beat with a rapid tempo - and, speaking of rapid tempos, thats exactly what Pietersen produced when biffing 83 from 57 deliveries against Jamaica Tallawahs in Kingston. KPs pyrotechnics could not fire the Zouks to victory on that occasion, though, as Chadwick Walton (76 from 48) and that Chris Gayle fella (64no from 42) ran amok. Pietersens 39-ball 73 versus Barbados Tridents a game earlier, in which he smoked seven fours and five sixes, did propel his side to a win, but they were dumped out in the group stages for the third straight year.Ram Slam (Sunfoil Dolphins) The former England man hit an impressive 115 off 66 balls in the Ram Slam Innings: 7Runs: 401Hundreds: 2Fifties: 2Highest Score: 115noBack-to-back fifties for Pietersen in the Caribbean were followed by successive centuries in South Africa.dddddddddddd The 35-year-old smashed 10 sixes into the Kingsmead crowd in his 115 off 66 balls against Lions, before nailing seven more in a score of exactly 100 from 45 deliveries versus Knights. Pietersen followed that up with consectutive half centuries, although he was less effective when he returned for his sides last two games - scoring 27 in the semi-final before hitting 10 in the final as Dolphins lost to The Unlimited Titans.Big Bash (Melbourne Stars) Pietersen struck 62 from 36 balls in Melbourne Stars semi-final win over Perth Scorchers Innings: 9Runs: 323Fifties: 4Highest Score: 76Pietersen played an important part as Melbourne Stars broke their semi-final curse and booked a spot in the BBL final after four previously failed attempts. KP was the Stars top run-scorer for the tournament, cracking fifty in nearly half of his innings. That included 62 from 36 balls in the semi-final win over Perth Scorchers, but another half century in the final (74 off 39), could not secure the Stars the title they so desperately covet. Usman Khawaja - in sensational form during the Australian summer - hit 70 from 40 balls, helping Sydney Thunder to a three-wicket win, successfully chasing down 177.Pakistan Super League (Quetta Gladiators) Pietersen bats for Quetta Gladiators in the final of Pakistan Super League Innings: 9Runs: 215Fifties: 1Highest Score: 53Pietersen wasnt quite the powerhouse Pakistan fans expected for his nine matches with the Quetta Gladiators in the inaugural season of the PSL. He struck only one fifty in nine innings, although he did at least save that for a low-scoring semi-final against Peshawar Zalmi, when his 53 off 38 balls proved crucial in a one-run win. The final was a less successful affair, however, with KP managing only a run-a-ball 18 in a six-wicket defeat to Islamabad United - Dwayne Smith (73 off 51) and Brad Haddin (61no off 39) putting on an ultimately match-winning 85 for the second wicket.
