Mumbai won by Ishan Kishan's blast

Mumbai Indians needed to win this match to stay alive in the playoff race. Chasing just 91 runs, first captain Rohit Sharma got Mumbai off to a bang, but he got out early. After Rohit, Suryakumar Yadav also lost his wicket trying to get runs fast.

But Ishan Kishan, playing after the break, played brilliant innings and scored 50 runs in just 25 balls to give his team victory before just 9 overs. Ishan Kishan also played a maiden over in his innings, but later exploded to score 50 runs in 25 balls. Ishan hit 5 fours, 3 sixes in his innings.

Shameful batting by Rajasthan Royals

Mumbai won the toss and called Rajasthan to bat and their decision proved to be brilliant. Evin Lewis and Yashasvi Jaiswal tried to get Rajasthan off to a fast start, but after the dismissal of both, none of the batsmen could survive. Only 4 players of Rajasthan Royals crossed the double-figure and opener Evin Lewis remained the number one scorer after scoring 24 runs.

Mumbai got the advantage of victory in the points table

Due to winning the match within just 9 overs, Mumbai Indians have made a tremendous advantage in the net run rate and now they have reached the fifth position directly. Delhi, Chennai and Bengaluru have already confirmed their seats in the playoffs and now the battle is on for the fourth team. There is a battle left between Mumbai, Kolkata and Punjab for a spot.
