Today IPL Match Live Updates RR v MI 36th Match:
- Rajasthan won by 5 wkts
MUMBAI 161/5 (20.0)
RAJASTHAN 162/5 (19.1)
- Fifth Wicket: That’s another in quick time for Mumbai with both the set batsmen making their way back to the pavilion. As Smith falls for 57, all eyes are on Rajasthan here who’ve been known to collapse and hand over matches to the opposition? Do we have another turnaround here?
- Rajasthan need 9 runs in 12 balls
- Fourth Wicket: Mumbai finally have a wicket in the form of a runout. Cutting gets Riyan who goes for 43 off 29 balls. A noteworthy innings though from him, one that asserts his role in the side for the matches to follow.
- Time-out. Rajasthan are bossing this, and they have a 17-year-old to thank, who’s all set to become IPL’s youngest ever half-centurion. 25 runs | 24 balls.
- 15 Over Update: Despite crumbling in two overs before the 10 over mark, this fourth wicket partnership between Steven and Riyan has held the fort for Rajasthan. At 128-3, they’re in complete control at the moment
- RAJASTHAN 118/3 (14.0)
- Over 12: As Rajasthan go past the 100 run mark, breaching the three digits at the 12 over mark, Markande and Pandya have been the biggest disappointment. Completely failed to make full use of the spin friendly conditions. 103-3
- Tantalizingly poised at the 10 over stage. Mumbai have made inroads with wickets at regular intervals. However what works in Rajasthan’s favour is the fact that the runs needed are not massive and if they decide to apply themselves at the crease, it can be an easy target to peel off. 90-3
- Third Wicket : It’s the third for Rahul with one leading to two in this over. Stokes promoted up the order, fails to understand the line and length and he’s bowled without opening his account. This over has turned the match on it’s head, brining Mumbai right back with a partnership the vital need for the Royals. RAJASTHAN 77/3 (8.0)
- Second Wicket: Rahul to Sampson and he’s picked up his second off the day. Mumbai’s fielding a stark contrast to Rajasthan, latching onto all the catches that fall their way. It’s fine margins and with Sampson gone for 35, Mumbai are finding their way here
- Highest PP scores for RR in IPL 2019:
64 vs KXIP, Jaipur
60 vs MI, Jaipur
59 vs MI, Mumbai WS
- Powerplay Update: All too easy from Malinga in the concluding over of the field restrictions, giving way too much area for Smith to easily guide the ball to the fence. Goes for 11 as we break into the timeout with Rajasthan making light work of Mumbai at 60-1
- First Wicket: Rahane showing yet again how poor the last year has been for him. Nothing on that ball, could have played it anywhere he wanted but he decides to jab at it tentatively. Straight into Rahul’s hands to see him lose his wicket for 12 runs. Dwindling batting after hitting the first two balls for boundaries. RAJASTHAN 39/1 (3.4)
- 1 4 1 1 6 4: Just 7 balls and Sampson has gone off to 21 runs here. The perfect start that the Royals needed on this floundering wicket. Will be a tough ask as the frontline bowlers start operating and RR need to keep ensuring the runs come like this. RAJASTHAN 24/0 (2.0)
- RAJASTHAN 14/0 (1.2)
- Second Inning Starts: We’re set with the chase here. With absolutely nothing going their way this season, the Royals need to get this target done and dusted with here. It’s Rahane and Sampson who’re opening for the hosts with Buttler out of the side today.
- Innings BreakMUMBAI 161/5 (20.0)
- Despite losing their way in the end of the innings, the score Mumbai have managed to put on here is an extremely respectable and commendable one. As the day goes by, this surface will only become a treacherous ask to bat on especially with the exceptional bowling unit at the Indians disposal. 161-5 with a six taking the score past the 160 run mark.
- Hardik Pandya’s cameos in IPL 2019:
- Fifth Wicket: No bat on it and Pandya has to go here for 23 runs LBW by Archer. Right line and length on it, extremely straight and there was no question about it. The Royals went for the DRS and it’s paid off in their favour. Well delivered ball, right plumb infront.
- MUMBAI 152/4 (19.0)
- Comedy on show by Archer. What is wrong with him today? He’s dropped his third catch of the match, in similar manner. Easy chances, you should be lapping those up and he’s completely failed to wrap his hands around it. Failing to stake a claim for the England squad.
- MUMBAI 128/4 (17.0)
- With Mumbai scoring over 11 per over in the final overs and the Royals giving away a derogatory over 11 runs per over in the death overs, we have a delicious battle in our hands. The wicket is playing slow and anything can happen here.
- Fourth Wicket : He’s cleaned him up! The slower one again from Unadkat, Pollard fails to understand the trajectory of the delivery as he tries to go for the big hit. Goes through his bat and pad, the big heave getting nowhere near the ball and he’s gone for just 10 runs.
- Direct hit by Rahane and it’s gone to the third umpire. Pandya got his bat down before the bails were dislocated and the pressure of a tight, economical over by Archer putting ever increasing pressure on Mumbai. Just the 2 runs of the 16th. MUMBAI 114/3 (16.0)
- 112-3 at the 15 over mark. Whole Mumbai have an incredible lower middle-order to venture here and with Pollard and Pandya at the crease, the only problem for them is that the new batsmen will take some time to settle in. With the frontline bowlers yet to play for the Royals, they’ll be looking to reel back things.
- Third Wicket: Shreyas gets his second of the day as Quinton de Kock tries to cut at a widish delivery. It spun away from him, kept too low and with the ball showing massive turn, he could only find Stokes. A good innings of 65 runs from him but Mumbai have lose two quick wickets here and they’ll be disappointed with this situation.
- Second Wicket: OUT! Pulled by Suryakumar, back of the length delivery and with pace taken off the ball, he needed to create all the power on that shot. Failed to do so, goes for 34 out caught by Kulkarni and it was an innings that failed to impress despite getting the runs.
- MUMBAI 102/1 (13.1)
- Halfway stage for the Mumbai Indians: With the scoreboard reading a healthy 80 in 10 overs, this is becoming an extremely good foundation that Mumbai are laying out on this pitch. It’s a start and stop wicket and Mumbai are making full use of the little batting friendly conditions at hand.
- Time out! Mumbai lost Rohit early but have recovered through this pair. de Kock once again looks in fine touch and is setting up the platform for the big hitters. Rajasthan need to bring back Gopal. MUMBAI 72/1 (9.0)
- 62-1 after 8 overs and Suryakumar is repeating the same mistakes he did the last time. Way too slow an innings, making Quinton take all the risk to do the brute of the scoring and this is hardly going to help Mumbai.
- MUMBAI 53/1 (7.0)
- Power Update: It’s all Quinton at the moment whose taking the mantle of playing out an innings for his side. Out of the 46 runs the Royals have managed at this point, he has 33 to his name. Credit to be given to the way Mumbai have opened their arms to take the score ahead in the powerplay.
- MUMBAI 38/1 (5.0)
- MUMBAI 12/1 (2.4)
- First Wicket: First over of spin and Rohit shows yet again how difficult he finds it to navigate the slower bowlers. Wicket to wicket line and length, balls keeps straight and he hands over the ball straight to Shreyas. Couldn’t be an easier catch and he’s gone for 5.
- MUMBAI 3/0 (1 Overs)
- First Inning Starts: de Kock and Rohit are at the crease. de Kock is on strike. Binny will open the attack.
