  • IPL 2019,MI vs RR,Buttler

Mumbai: Rajasthan Royals (RR) survived a late implosion to beat Mumbai Indians (MI) by 4 wickets and three balls to spare at the IPL match at the Wankhede in Mumbai on Saturday.

Buttler first conjured a 60-run opening stand with skipper Ajinkya Rahane (37 off 21 balls, 6x 4; 1x6) to lay the foundation and then added 87 runs for the second wicket with Sanju Samson (31 off 26 balls; 2x4, 1x6).

The visitors also remained lucky during the business end as they received a four off an outside edge in addition to MI's fielders dropping two catches off consecutive deliveries. While trying to clear the fence, Buttler (89; 43 balls, 4x8, 6x7) holed out to Suryakumar Yadav at the long-off fence. Rahul Chahar then gave Mumbai the much-needed breakthrough, as he got rid of the risky Buttler in the 14th over. With regular skipper Rohit Sharma back in the XI, he opened the batting with de Kock and the two took the Royals bowling to the cleaners right from the word go.Such was their domination that MI raced to 57 without losing a wicket in just six overs. De Kock was particularly severe on off-spinner K Gautam that led to a fiery start from the home team, but the sapping conditions at the Wankhede meant de Kock had slowed down towards the backend of the innings, even though his contribution was worth its weight in gold for the MI total.

Looking at all the information, I am going pick the Rajasthan Royals to win this match.

Without Griffin, the Pistons were no match for the top-seeded Bucks in Game 1 on Sunday night, losing 121-86 at Fiserv Forum. Griffin, 30, averaged a team-high 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game this season.

Rohit Sharma had sustained a muscle injury on his leg during practice on Tuesday which forced him to sit at the dugout for the first time in 11 seasons for Mumbai Indians. "I was disappointed to get out when I did. we'll take a lot of confidence from this win", man of the match Buttler, who has three half-centuries this season, said. Rahul Tripathi, Dhawal Kulkarni and Jaydev Unadkat are some of the Indian guys to look out for.

Corey Anderson's innings of 95 from 44 balls that included 6 sixes helped Mumbai Indians scale down the target of 190 set by Rajasthan. However, Jofra Archer (3/39) took some important wickets to peg the scoring rate back. A few more bad results and the team can very well say goodbye to their playoff hopes.

Rohit Sharma, the MI captain, saidI think credit goes to RR, they played well.

Jos Buttler, for his 89 off 43 balls and three catches.
