Royal innings from Buttler keeps Rajasthan in Play-offs hunt

For Rajasthan Royals, the form of opener Buttler has been the biggest positive. Catch Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2018 live cricket score & updates below: 8:26pm: Ben Stokes come in to bowl Ben Stokes join the bowling attack.

Evin Lewis played a magnificent inning of 60 runs off 42 balls with 4 fours and 4 sixes, while his opening partner Suryakumar Yadav scored 38 runs off 31 balls with 7 boundaries.

Rajasthan Royals did that after winning the toss, electing to field. Right both, MI and RR are placed at the fifth and sixth place respectively with 10 points each. Mumbai won the title in 2015, after losing five out of the first six matches and winning the title. We have D'Arcy Short coming in.

A desperate Rahane brought back Archer and he not only provided the Royals the breakthrough by getting rid of Suryakumar but dealt a massive blow to the hosts by dismissing rival captain in the next ball.

Buttler (415 runs), Sanju Samson (353 runs) have been the top two batsmen for them and expectations will be high on them. Rahane who was rightly troubled by the partnership chose to use his trump card and sent in Archer to bowl the 11over. Kishan holds an important place in the MI batting line-up, especially some of their key middle order batsmen have failed repeatedly. Lewis went on to score a half-century and Hardik Pandya also pinched in with a quickfire 36 runs off 21 balls, as the Mumbai side finished its innings at 168/6 in its allotted quota of 20 overs. "He (Buttler) has been consistent for the last three to four games so he's due for one bad game".

France24 reported that police officers initially tried to taser the attacker but then fired two shots to stop him. Another witness called Gloria, 47, told the AFP news agency: "I was on a café terrace and heard four shots".

While other batsmen struggled to time the ball, Buttler did it with remarkable ease as he punished the home bowlers with five sixes and nine fours in his entertaining 53-ball 94.

"That's how we have been playing". Now, they, fifth in the points table, have points and a good chance to enter the play offs.

The English cricketer, in partnership with captain Ajinkya Rahane (37), added 95 runs for the second wicket and took the team past the finishing line. Jofra's couple of wickets in that over changed the game. "I want to do well for Mumbai Indians first and then I will see how it goes", Krunal noted. Hope we continue that because our next three games are do-or-die encounters.
