IPL: Harshal hat-trick helps RCB crush MI by 54 runs


Glenn Maxwell justified his million dollar contract with an all-round performance before Harshal Patel took a hat-trick to ensure a thumping 54-run victory for RCB over MI. Maxwell (56 off 37 balls and 2/23) produced one of his better efforts in the IPL while Harshal (4/17 in 3.1 overs), the current Purple Cap holder removed Hardik, Pollard and Rahul off successive deliveries to defend a target of 165.
