MI vs RR: Rajasthan Royals beat Mumbai Indians to stay in contention

IPL 2018, Match 47: Jofra Archer and co. restrict MI after good start; RR need 169

"We will be going match by match and that's how we have played from the first game itself". Second-placed Chennai Super Kings are second with 14 points from 11 games, while Kings XI Punjab are third with 12 points from 10 games. Lewis added 87 runs with fellow opener Suryakumar Yadav (38 off 31), who was also dropped on nine by the Royals fielders. However, a win here would help the cause of both the teams immensely. The likes of New Zealander Mitchell McClenaghan (12 wickets) and Hardik (16 wickets) have failed to keep it tight. The Baroda all-rounder also said that the Mumbai Indians in the latter half of the tournament grabbed their opportunities and started winning games. For Mumbai Indians- eyes will be on the Pandya brothers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mayank Markande who have been doing phenomenal for the Mumbai Indians.

In reply, Rajasthan rode on Jos Buttler's 53-ball 94 not out to finish with 171/3 in 18 overs, registering a comfortable seven-wicket victory.

In their last game, Buttler carried his bat with a 95 not out to see his team through by four wickets against CSK. But their out-of-form skipper Ajinkya Rahane will need to step up. Others like Sanju Samson, Stuart Binny and Rahul Tripathi need to chip in. Rahane (243 runs) and Ben Stokes (185) have been below-par and head coach Shane Warne will be relieved if they fire on Sunday.

As far as bowling is concerned Jofra Archer and K Gowtham have been good for the Rajasthan Royals and tonight at the Wankhede, they would the bowlers to watch out for.

With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.

After flying starts, Mumbai often lose their way in the middle and their batters will have to make amends on this aspect if they want to have a shot at a play-offs berth.

Rajasthan Royals are also on same 10 points from 11 matches. You can also follow the match live blog for ball-by-ball updates, full score and IPL match highlight on cricketnext.com. Mumbai secures six runs in this over 8:02pm: MI at 14/0 after 1 over Four!
