Jos Buttler breaks down Mumbai Indians

Ben Stokes

It is a do-or-die clash for the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) as well as Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Mumbai's home turf. However, another good (61-run) partnership between Sanju Samson (26) and Buttler, sealed things for Rajasthan. But skipper Ajinkya Rahane will expect his team to get their act together and aim for consistency as several must-win games have been lined up for them. The win has lifted Rajasthan Royals from sixth position to fifth with 12 points, behind KKR (12) and KXIP (12). 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. Runs are also expected from Ishan Kishan and all-rounders Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal. For Mumbai Indians- eyes will be on the Pandya brothers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mayank Markande who have been doing phenomenal for the Mumbai Indians.

On the bowling front, young leggie Mayank Markande has been the find of the season and his role will be crucial if the likes of rampaging Jos Buttler and other Rajasthan batters are to be restricted tomorrow. Rahane (243 runs) and Ben Stokes (185) have been below-par and head coach Shane Warne will be relieved if they fire on Sunday. Mumbai won the title in 2015, after losing five out of the first six matches and winning the title.

When is the IPL match Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals? Rahane who was rightly troubled by the partnership made a decision to use his trump card and sent in Archer to bowl the 11over.

Jofra Archer who now has 13 wickets to his name from just seven games is our pick for "Bowler of the Match". The Royals chased down the total easily as they got over the line with two overs to spare with seven wickets in hand. Ish Sodhi is sick. The live streaming of MI vs RR 2018 Match 47 will be available on hotstar.com for free.




Rajasthan Royals next play Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens. Rajasthan Royals seems to gauging the pitch as they strategise their men for fielding.

The fluffed chances allowed Mumbai to come out of Power-play overs unscathed and with 51 runs on the board. The toss of MI vs RR IPL 2018 will take place at 07:30 PM.

RR: Joss Butter, Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Stuart Binny, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ish Sodhi, Ben Stokes and Rahul Tripathi.
