Today’s IPL match result

Asked to bat first, Rajasthan Royals started decently but Jasprit Bumrah and Tymal Mills provided Mumbai with a perfect start and removed Yashasvi Jaiswal (1) and Devdutt Padikkal (7) leaving RR tumbling at 48/2 after the power play. However, after that, it was Jos Buttler’s show. The English batsman notched up his second ton in the league. He was complimented well by Sanju Samson (30) and Shimron Hetmyer (35) as RR posted a mammoth total of 193 runs on the board.

Chasing the target, Mumbai started the same like the Rajasthan did as they lost both Rohit Sharma (10) and Anmolpreet Singh (5) inside the power play. After that Ishan Kishan (54) and Tilak Varma (61) stitched on an incredible 80 time partnership to resurrect MI’s innings. Yuzi Chahal then twisted the tale after he bowled sensational 16th over, where he gave just 1 run and took two wickets. The match saw the twist once again when Kieron Pollard kept Mumbai in hunt with his hitting ability. With 29 runs needed off the last over, the West Indies skipper smashed a four on the first ball  but then failed to capitalise on the start and score the remaining runs.
