IPL 2018, MI vs RR: Lewis, Pandya lift MI to 168

IPL 2018 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Live Cricket Score: 47th Match RR vs MI Live Streaming on Hotstar

Mumbai first posted 168 runs for the loss of six wickets and then Rajasthan came down to the park with a goal and reached 171 runs by losing three wickets.

MI had one win from their first six games, against a troubled Royal Challengers Bangalore. That lapse cost Royals 55 runs, as Lewis ended up being Mumbai's top scorer with 60 off 42 balls.

Today is the 47th match of the IPL 2018 and between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals (MI vs RR Today IPL Match).

As was the case with Mumbai, Rajasthan too slowed down as the ball got softer and the boundaries were hard to come by. The completely unpredictable side surprised everyone after defeating CSK to get back to winning ways.

That followed knocks of 67 off 26 balls, 51 (off 39) and 82 (off 58) and means Buttler has amassed 509 runs in 12 games in 2018 at an average of 56.55 and a strike-rate of 153.77.

Butler hit nine fours and five sixes as the Royals romped home by seven wickets in the cash-rich Twenty20 league.

Mumbai Indians: Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Rohit Sharma (capt), Ishan Kishan (wk), JP Duminy, Hardik Pandya, Ben Cutting, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah. Dhawal Kulkarni and Unadkat picked a wicket each.

Archer's wickets of Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma off successive deliveries in the 11th over was perhaps the turning point of the match. Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes were the top bowlers for Royals and put up a significant bowling show by restricting the Indians from scoring runs and scalping two wickets each.

It was hard to time the ball on the wicket and it required enormous physical strength to clear the boundary ropes. We didn't get a partnership in the earlier games but we knew that if we get one early on, it'll be easy to chase. He never really gave Mumbai a look-in in the game once he walked out with the bat, which he effectively used to club the ball around the park. When Lewis swung the next ball high into the Mumbai skyline and was dropped by Stuart Binny at mid-on, Archer barely reacted: a small drop of the head and back to his run-up. In the games that we lost in the past, we didn't finish well with the bat.

RR could have restricted MI for a shorter total if not for some poor deliveries to Hardik in the last overs and a disastrous 19-run penultimate over from Unadkat. They need to carry on the form and play some good cricket on the field. Mumbai had suffered five losses in their first six games in 2015 and then from there went on to clinch the title.
