Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted.
For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.

 
Lokesh Rahul was the highest impact batsman and player of the match but his performance (the highest impact of his IPL career) went in vain as MI beat RCB by six wickets with 8 balls to spare.
Rahul came out to bat at 17 for 2 (with RCB under pressure of falling wickets) and anchored the innings with an unbeaten 68 off 53 deliveries.

Krunal Pandya emerged as not only the most restrictive bowler of the match but also the highest impact one. He conceded just 15 runs in his 4 overs and got the crucial wicket of AB de Villiers.

Five players from RCB failed in the match. In comparison, MI had four such players.
