Mumbai Indians (195/5)

Ishan Kishan (37/36): Kartik Tyagi to Ishan Kishan, OUT! CAUGHT! What a catch from Jofra Archer! That is absurd from Archer! Just terrific! Tyagi cannot believe it and neither can anybody. Short ball outside off, Kishan cuts it towards third man. Archer misjudges it at first and runs ahead but then sees the ball go behind. He jumps and plucks it out of thin air with his right hand. He balances himself well and manages to hold onto it. 

Quinton de Kock (6/4): Jofra Archer to Quinton de Kock, OUT! DRAGGED ON! What a comeback from Jofra Archer! Gets a wicket after being hit for a six off the previous ball. Just terrific stuff from Archer. He bowls a good length ball outside off, de Kock looks to cut but does not move his feet. It takes the inside edge and goes onto uproot the leg stump. Good start from Rajasthan. 

Suryakumar Yadav (40/26): Shreyas Gopal to Suryakumar Yadav, OUT! CAUGHT! Good passage of play for Rajasthan! Two quick wickets and it is of the two set batsmen. First Kishan and now Yadav. Gopal tosses this one outside off, Yadav looks to go over long off but fails to time it well. Stokes settles himself under it at long off and takes a simple catch. Rajasthan are making a comeback in this game.

Saurabh Tiwary (34/25): Jofra Archer to Saurabh Tiwary, OUT! CAUGHT! Tiwary departs! He played a fine little knock though before walking back. Low full toss on middle, Tiwary looks to go over long on but does not time it well. It goes straight into the hands of Ben Stokes at long on. Low full toss works for Archer this time. 

Kieron Pollard (6/4): Shreyas Gopal to Kieron Pollard, OUT! TIMBER! What a ball from Shreyas Gopal! This is turning out to be an excellent passage of play for Rajasthan. 3 wickets in no time and it is the big wicket of Kieron Pollard. Gopal has struggled this season so far but has turned up when his side needed it the most. He bowls a googly on middle, Pollard looks to flick but misses and the ball goes onto hit the stumps. Look at the excitement from the Rajasthan players. They know how important this wicket is. 

Hardik Pandya* (60/21) and Krunal Pandya* (3/4): Kartik Tyagi to Hardik Pandya, SIX! What a way to finish the innings! Hardik Pandya, you beauty! Good length ball on middle, Hardik lifts it over the bowler’s head for a maximum. MUMBAI END ON 195 FOR 5.

Rajasthan Royals (196/2)

Robin Uthappa (13/11): James Pattinson to Robin Uthappa, OUT! CAUGHT! Uthappa plays two lovely shots but plays a poor shot and perishes. This is not what Rajasthan wanted when they are chasing a big score. Short ball around off, Uthappa looks to pull but fails to get it off the middle of the bat. It goes towards mid on where Pollard runs across and takes a simple catch. 

Steven Smith (11/8): James Pattinson to Steven Smith, OUT! TIMBER! What a ball from James Pattinson. He gets his second wicket and it is the big one of Steven Smith. Pattinson dishes a good length ball on off, it angles in. Smith looks to drive but it takes the inside edge and goes onto hit the stumps. Big wicket for Mumbai. They are on top in this game now. 152 needed in 92 balls.

Ben Stokes* (107/60) and Sanju Samson* (54/31): James Pattinson to Ben Stokes, FOUR! There’s the game! What an innings! Full toss outside off, Stokes drives it through the extra cover region and picks up a boundary. RAJASTHAN WIN BY 8 WICKETS.
