Mitchell McClenaghan admits that Mumbai Indians were outplayed by Jos Butler

MI and Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to move a step closer to play-off berth with a win MI and Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to move a step closer to play-off berth with a win

With the fifty, Buttler joined Kane Williamson as the second player this season to score five consecutive half centuries.

Earlier in the evening, Mumbai Indians had thrown away the advantage that openers Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav had provided them with an 87-run stand in 64 balls, collapsing dramatically through the middle overs to make fewer runs in the second half of the innings than the first.

MI had one win from their first six games, against a troubled Royal Challengers Bangalore.

It has been a dramatic turnaround for the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians after a string losses early in the tournament. Mumbai at 34/0 after 4 overs 8:14pm: Stuart Binny misses Erin Lewis' catch; MI at 25/0 after 3 overs To what looked like one of the tallest shot was missed by RR's Stuart Binny. The completely unpredictable side surprised everyone after defeating CSK to get back to winning ways. Buttler carried his bat through and during his stay smashed nine fours and five sixes. Hardik smartly played out Archer (2 for 16) and took the attack to Unadkat, hitting him for two sixes and a four to take Mumbai past the 150-run mark before being caught brilliantly at deep mid-wicket by Samson. At this point Lewis opened up by accelerating against Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni and Jaydev Unadkat.

For me, both Lewis (12/5) and Yadav (11/4) are too short in a congested list and Rohit Sharma looks better value at 7/2.

It was Jasprit Bumrah who bowled a flawless seam delivery to Short and Ishan Kishan took a solid catch to get MI their first wicket. Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes were the top bowlers for Royals and put up a significant bowling show by restricting the Indians from scoring runs and scalping two wickets each. He bowled 14 dot balls and terrorized the batsmen with his lightening fast Yorkers and short balls. The discussion before the game was to get used to the wicket as soon as possible.

At 7/4 this market is back as a strong play in IPL 2018, particularly in games like this where neither side can afford to lose. Moreover, the Pandya brothers have been very good with both bat and ball, and they will be expected to deliver once again.

The England international's destructive hitting boosted his current team's play-off hopes; they have now leapfrogged over their opponents into fifth place in the standings, though their negative net run-rate is a concern. Even in batting we lost a couple of our wickets and didn't get that partnership but here did and credit must go to our bowlers.
