Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals

Jasprit Bumrah provided Mumbai early delight when he had D'Arcy Short caught behind poking at one which left him in the first over.

Power. Placement. Timing. You can attribute one name to those basic cricketing elements - Jos Buttler. Ben Cutting and Hardik Pandya might have wrecked their batting.

Find the full match scorecard here. RR won the toss and elected to bowl, and MI took to the crease. Openers Surya Kumar Yadav (38) and Evin Lewis (60) were striking well as the team was going at about 8 runs per over after the first 10 overs.

Lewis, who was earlier dropped on five by Stuart Binny, tried to smash Dhawal Kulkarni out of the park and he got the elevation - plenty of it too - but not the distance.

Hardik Pandy took two wickets for Mumbai but was very expensive, conceding 52 runs in his four overs.

As was the case with Mumbai, Rajasthan too slowed down as the ball got softer and the boundaries were hard to come by. Rahane who was rightly troubled by the partnership made a decision to use his trump card and sent in Archer to bowl the 11over.

It worked wonders. Hardik Pandya likes to swing hard at anything pitched close to him, but Archer made sure he was either fast and tight outside off stump, or much slower and short of a good length. In 25 balls (between Overs 7.2 and 11.3), Rajasthan managed to put just two balls to the fence.

The record breaker: Englishman Jos Buttler has been the signing of the tournament, shifting from Mumbai to Rajasthan in the off-season and flourishing at the top of the Royals order.

Butler hit nine fours and five sixes as the Royals romped home by seven wickets in the cash-rich Twenty20 league. However, post that he never looked in danger of anything as he displayed immaculate timing right though his innings. His two wickets were the catalyst that brought RR back into the game.

It was Jasprit Bumrah who bowled a ideal seam delivery to Short and Ishan Kishan took a solid catch to get MI their first wicket. His form with the bat, however, has been disappointing having been dismissed for a golden duck in both the games against KXIP. "I want the boys to stand up and do well in that", Rahane signed off by saying. The manner in which they won the previous encounter will help them feel a lot good about themselves. "Need to go 2 from 2 now but we are still in the hunt!" That was missing today and games like this can happen.

The England international's destructive hitting boosted his current team's play-off hopes; they have now leapfrogged over their opponents into fifth place in the standings, though their negative net run-rate is a concern.

In the bowling department, Royals have had mixed fortunes although the inclusion of Jofra Archer has lent some balance to the attack.
