IPL 2019,MI vs RR,Buttler

For Rajasthan Royals, everything falls into place, but then somehow they do not cross the finishing line. Once he holed out to long off, the visitors threatened to collapse as they lost five wickets in the space of 17 runs, with Krunal Pandya taking three to bring MI back into the game. The West Indian pacer was hit for four fours and two sixes as Buttler moved from 61 to 89 in space of six balls.

Earlier, Quinton de Kock hit a belligerent 81 as he powered Mumbai Indians to an imposing 187/5 against Rajasthan.

Rajasthan Royals won the toss and put Mumbai Indians in to bat in their IPL match in Mumbai on Saturday. For Rajasthan Royals, Ben Stokes was erratic in the final over in the match against Chennai Super Kings and conceded the match, but he should be in the side as he has the pedigree to strike big on any given day.

And then Rajasthan made a good comeback removing Surya Kumar Yadav (16) and Kieron Pollard (6) to reduce the hosts to 136/3.

The Royals were looking set to chase down the total easily before they lost Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Liam Livingstone and Steve Smith inside 4 runs to get reduced to 174 for 6 from 170 for 2.

Kohli scored 67 and AB de Villiers made an unbeaten 59 as RCB chased down 174 for victory with four balls remaining.

Bowling has been some sort of concern for Mumbai especially the form of Hardik Pandya with the ball. In all, Buttler struck 8 fours and 7 towering sixes, which included that assault on Joseph, who had just secured the best figures in VIVO IPL history two games ago. With 6 fours and 4 sixes, de Kock was destructive at the start of the MI innings, being the dominant partner with Rohit Sharma at the other end as the duo took heavy toll on the RR bowlers.

On Tuesday, Rohit Sharma gave Mumbai Indians and India noteworthy injury alarm when he limped out of MI's training session. When they were batting, MI seemed on course for a total of around 200, before the Royals, led by the pacy Jofra Archer, who took three wickets, and the economical Gopal clawed back into the game.

RR's chase of 188 is the second highest by any team against Mumbai Indians.

Hardik Pandya's 28-run cameo at the death propelled Mumbai to 187 but it wasn't enough in the end as Rohit's 100th match as captain for Mumbai Indians ended on a gloomy note.
