Share

Rajasthan looked very during the previous round and I see RR winning their second successive match in Mohali.

Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: Batting first Mumbai Indians put up an imposing 187/5 courtesy of an aggressive 81 by South African Quinton De Kock.

Buttler slowly shifted gears as he smashed medium pacer Alzarri Joseph for 28 runs in the 13th over with Rajasthan placed at 146/1.Rahul Chahar then gave Mumbai the much-needed breakthrough, as he got rid off the risky Buttler in the 14th over. Mumbai has won their last three games and are placed third on the table with four wins from six games while their opponents have managed to win just one game so far and lie at the seventh place. Solid performances from Jos Buttler and Ajinkya Rahane, along with Sanju Samson saw the visitors through.

Buttler initially played second fiddle to Rahane but then upped his ante once skipper was gone. The keeper-batsman notched 81 from 52 and got out in the penultimate over of Mumbai's innings. Rahul Chahar then gave Mumbai the much-needed breakthrough, as he got rid of the risky Buttler in the 14th over. "Stokesky is injured and replaced by Liam Livingstone, Gowtham is back as well".

Yet they made hard work of completing the job, losing four wickets in a hurry to give Mumbai hope before Shreyas Gopal got his side home with three balls to spare with a boundary off Hardik Pandya.

Rajasthan Royals' Jofra Archer (C) celebrates with teammates after taking a wicket against Mumbai Indians. While de Kock was dismissed in the 19th over, Hardik Pandya carried forward the onslaught to finish with an unbeaten 28 off just 11 balls (4x1, 6x3).The common adage goes that morning shows the day, and the MI innings was a flawless testimony to that.

Earlier, Rohit and De Kock took the opposition attack to the cleaners as the two added 96 for the first wicket. Rahul Tripathi, Dhawal Kulkarni and Jaydev Unadkat are some of the Indian guys to look out for. He raced to his fifty in 34 balls. The mishap was like salt on the wounds of the Caribbean, who was torn apart by a rampaging Jos Buttler moments earlier.
