RR vs MI: Match Report and Overview

MI gave their skipper Rohit Sharma the best 35th birthday today. A good, collective bowling performance from MI had restricted Rajasthan Royals to 158/6. Kumar Kartikeya, the debutant left-arm spinner, was impressive with 1/19. Riley Meredith hit Jos Buttler on the helmet with a nasty bouncer and bagged 2/24. MI chased down the target with an 81-run third-wicket partnership between Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma. While Surya made a half century, Varma supported him with 35 of 30 deliveries. Even in the final over, when only four runs were required, Kieron Pollard’s dismissal had changed the dynamics of the match. But Daniel Sams hit the first ball he faced for a six and the stadium went crazy.
