IPL 2018: MI vs RR Preview

Ben Stokes

The record breaker: Englishman Jos Buttler has been the signing of the tournament, shifting from Mumbai to Rajasthan in the off-season and flourishing at the top of the Royals order.

Ajinkya Rahane, Rajasthan Royals' captain, has been fined Rs 12 Lakh for maintaining slow over-rate during team's Sunday night game against Mumbai Indians. But he made most of his promotion since, cracking five fifties in as many games and that's a feat matched only by Virender Sehwag in the IPL history. The discussion before the game was to get used to the wicket as soon as possible. Lewis batted smartly as he opened his arms only after building his innings steadily after being dropped at individual score of five.Lewis added 87 runs with fellow opener Suryakumar Yadav (38 off 31) who was also dropped on nine by the Royals fielders. Mumbai Indians, on a roll lately, are back on their home turf to face Rajasthan Royals on Sunday evening. Things were looking bleak today for Mumbai in IPL 2018.

He had two fruitful partnerships with Ajinkya Rahane (37 off 36) and Sanju Samson (26 off 14). Lewis hit four sixes and as many fours in his innings.West Indies' paceman Jofra Archer produced excellent bowling performance to put the hosts under pressure. Those wickets completely shifted the momentum onto Rajasthan's side.

Buttler's unbeaten 94 helped Rajasthan defeat defending champions Mumbai Indians with two overs to spare keeping them firmly in contention of reaching the Play-offs.

Archer's wickets of Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma off successive deliveries in the 11th over was perhaps the turning point of the match. The good news is, they have years worth of experience of emerging out of the hole they dug for themselves in the first-half of the season. We've got D'Arcy Short in. Archer was the top pick among the RR bowlers, returning with figures of 4-0-16-2. The discussion before the game was to get used to the wicket as soon as possible. "I want the boys to stand up and do well in that". Suryakumar then hit Kulkarni for a couple of fours in his second over and Lewis followed suit as Mumbai ended the Power Play at 51 without loss. In the games that we lost in the past, we didn't finish well with the bat. "Somewhere down the line over a period of time, Mumbai Indians have played their best cricket when they are down and out", he noted.

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.
