The players of Rajasthan Royals gave a stunning performance in all the three formats of the game. Ajinkya Rahane quite wisely rotated the bowlers, not letting the players of Mumbai Indians score a huge number at the scoreboard.
However,the efforts of Hardik Pandya (36), Suryakumar Yadav (38) and Evin Lewis (60) stretched the total scores to the total of 168 runs in 20 overs.
In the second innings, the players of Rajasthan Royals turned the table by their stunning performance. They chased the target runs very wonderfully.
It was Joss Buttler’s destructive knock which made the team chase the runs with so much ease and perfection. He scored 94 runs off 53 balls. Sanju Samson scored a quick 26 in 14 balls, hitting 2 fours and 2 sixes.
On the other hand, the skipper of Rajasthan Royals, Ajinkya Rahane supported him very well during the knock. He scored 37 runs in 36 balls.
RR won the match by 7 wicket and achieved the target in only 18 overs, all thanks to Joss Buttler’s tweet.
