Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Highlights And Cricket Score 27th Match - T20 Summary

End of Over : 19.3 RR: 188/6

Not surprisingly, Jos Buttler has been named the Man Of The Match for his stunning knock. What would have been interesting to see is - who would have got the award had Rajasthan not got through. That ends the proceedings for this game but do not go anywhere. The Punjab-Bangalore match is about to begin in Mohali.

How does the points table stack up now? No change in the positions. Mumbai stay at third. Rajasthan are rooted to 7th. Only, the latter double their points to 4, staying alive in the tournament. Need 6 wins in their remaining 7 matches to make it to the knockouts.

Full marks to Mumbai for their effort. Their never-say-die spirit. For 70 percent of the chase, they were not in it at all but Buttler's wicket changed things and they dragged the momentum their way. Spare a thought for Alzarri Joseph. First, he was hammered by Jos Buttler. Then, he hurt his right shoulder which could keep him out of the game for a while. Bumrah and Krunal then strut their stuff, picking up 2 and 3 wickets respectively.

Buttler departed for 89 with 40 balls remaining, thinking that perhaps if he had stayed till the end, Rajasthan would have won in the 18th over. Now, they might win in the 19th. But what followed after that was absolute mayhem. Bumrah started the show, getting Samson, then Krunal got Livingstone and Tripathi in the next over. Smith then fell the next ball and it seemed like the game had slipped away. But somehow, Gopal held his nerve and carried his team through.

Ideally, Rajasthan should have done this with 7 or maximum 6 wickets in hand and an over to spare. The 60-run opening stand between Rahane and Buttler laid the platform, then another half century stand kept Mumbai at bay. Then came that explosive 28-run over in the 13th and that seemed to hit Mumbai really hard. With 42 needed from 42 balls and 9 wickets in hand, which side do you expect to win? The chasing one. But cricket is such a game that the more you expect, the more you get surprised. That is exactly what happened.

Phew! 217 minutes. 375 runs. 11 wickets. 237 balls. What a match. Mumbai batted first and raked up 187. Rajasthan were coasting through till the 14th over. But the game, funny that it is, shocked one and all as the visitors collapsed, only to somehow sneak through.

19.3 4

Hardik Pandya to Shreyas Gopal. FOUR! Here it is... RAJASTHAN WIN BY 4 WICKETS! Pandya offers a bit of room around off, Shreyas Gopal gives it the full whack of his bat and slaps it over extra cover for the winning runs. Rajasthan break their losing streak, their dugout is all pumped up!

19.2 0

Hardik Pandya to Shreyas Gopal. Play and a miss! Shortish this time, on off, Gopal tries to slam it through the line but fails to connect.

19.1 2

Hardik Pandya to Shreyas Gopal. IN THE AIR... DROPPED! The batsmen take two, two important runs. Fullish length ball on off, Gopal stands tall and lofts it over mid off. The fielder runs back to attempt for the catch but fails to hold on. It rolls behind and the long on fielder stops it from crossing the rope.

End of Over : 19 8 Runs 19.3: 182/6
18.6 1

Jasprit Bumrah to Shreyas Gopal. EDGED, BUT DROPPED! Will that cost Mumbai? Outside off, Gopal looks to force it through the off side again but gets another outside edge. This time it is closer to the keeper who dives to his right but cannot quite hang on to the catch. Sensational over from Bumrah. Almost did it for his side. Again.

18.5 4

Jasprit Bumrah to Shreyas Gopal. FOUR! Edged and a boundary! On a length outside off, Gopal looks to force it through the off side but gets a thick outside edge which flies past the keeper and beats even the very fine third man!

18.4 0

Jasprit Bumrah to Shreyas Gopal. Is that a nick? Not out, says the umpire. Gopal backs away to the leg side, attempting to force it through the off side but is cramped for room as the ball comes in. There is a noise as the ball goes through and Mumbai appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Mumbai do not have a review left. Replays show that there was no edge involved.

18.3 2

Jasprit Bumrah to Shreyas Gopal. Lovely shot, excellent effort but has Alzarri Joseph done himself a lot of harm? Full and outside off, Gopal leans and drives it through mid off. Joseph gives it a chase and tries to pull it back but then while trying to do so, he lands awkwardly on his shoulder and is in immense pain. Meanwhile, 2 runs taken.

18.2 1

Jasprit Bumrah to Krishnappa Gowtham. NOT OUT. MISSING LEG. Cannot blame the fielding unit for taking the review. It was a yorker, fired in on middle and leg and Gowtham was looking to flick, getting across. Was hit on the pads and up went Bumrah but the umpire was firm. There is a massive team meeting and just when the time remaining for DRS says 1 second, Rohit smilingly takes the review. Hawk Eye does not support the hosts though.

18.1 W

Jasprit Bumrah to Steven Smith. OUT! Caught behind! Is that the game? Is that the game? Rajasthan pulling off a sensational choke here. A length ball outside off, Smith looks to force it through the off side but the ball comes back in, cuts him for room and goes through. There is a noise and the keeper appeals but the umpire is unmoved. However, Smith walks and the hopes of Rajasthan sink.

End of Over : 18 3 Runs 19.3: 174/5
17.6 W

Krunal Pandya to Liam Livingstone. OUT! BOWLED! Are Mumbai pulling off the unthinkable? Another rash shot. The arm ball, outside off, Livingstone looks to play a wild slog but misses. The ball hits the timber and Mumbai think they can...

17.5 1

Krunal Pandya to Steven Smith. Full and outside off, driven wide of long off for one more.

17.4 1

Krunal Pandya to Liam Livingstone. Outside off, dabbed straight to short third man for a quick run. Rohit is not happy with the fielder. He wanted the new man on strike.

17.3 1

Krunal Pandya to Steven Smith. Short and outside off, dragged wide of long on for a single.
