Royals beat Mumbai by 4 wickets

IPL 2019,MI vs RR,Buttler Rajasthan Royals batsman Jos Buttler plays a shot during the 2019 Indian Premier League

Earlier, Quinton de Kock hit a belligerent 81 as he powered Mumbai Indians to an imposing 187/5 against Rajasthan. Hardik and Krunal Pandya form the middle order.

Buttler's dismissal preceded a torrid spell that saw the Royals, who were chasing 188 for their second win of the campaign, collapse from 170 for two to 174 for six, with IPL debutant Liam Livingstone managing only a single.

And then Rajasthan made a good comeback removing Surya Kumar Yadav (16) and Kieron Pollard (6) to reduce the hosts to 136/3.

Rohit Sharma's injury troubled India ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019, but Pollard has made it clear that the skipper missed MI's previous game just as a precautionary measure and he should be back against Rajasthan Royals.

This time, though, Shreyas Gopal ensured that the Royals reached home, eking out a couple of boundaries in the final two overs.

Jos Buttler began the VIVO IPL 2019 with what looked to be match-winning knock, but his Mankading on that occasion took the wind out of his performances in the few games that followed. Even though he wasn't the aggressor in this opening stand, Rohit held his own, running hard between wickets and stroking exquisitely through the off side for a 32-ball 47, eventually holing out in the deep off Jofra Archer.

Buttler, who had failed to score a half-century after his 69-run innings in RR's first game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), tormented the MI bowling attack to end RR's losing streak and denied MI a hat-trick of wins. They started the onslaught in the third over amassing 18 runs with the South African hitting a six and four off Krishnappa Gowtham. His 37 remained the second highest score in the RR run chase, and came at a strike rate of over 175 with 6 fours and a six. Jofra Archer is menacing with the ball, as is Varun Aaron and Oshane Thomas. Bumrah accounted for the wickets of Sanju Samson and Steve Smith as Mumbai Indians almost pulled off a stunning victory. However, the visitors had a stutter as they lost three wickets - Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripahi, Liam Livingstone and Steve Smith - in quick succession as MI struck back to make a game out of nowhere.

This match was Mumbai Indians' 200 and Rohit Sharma's 100 as captain of the franchise. Rajasthan's Jos Buttler responded with an equally blistering 89 of 43 deliveries.
