IPL 2019: Buttler, Gopal guide Rajasthan Royals to victory

IPL 2019,MI vs RR,Buttler

Mumbai: Englishman Jos Buttler laid the platform with a rampaging 89 while Shreyas Gopal held his nerve at the death to power Rajasthan Royals to a four-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier League encounter here Saturday.

The England vice-captain racked up 28 of his runs in an explosive 13th over in Mumbai, finding the boundary with four fours and two sixes. Jos Butler was the top scorer for the Royals with 89 off just 43 balls.

This was RR's just second win in seven games, as they continue to be placed second from bottom, while MI suffered their third defeat and are at the third spot.

Rajasthan Royals' Jofra Archer (C) celebrates with teammates after taking a wicket against Mumbai Indians. Against Mumbai Indians on Saturday, however, Buttler grew in confidence in the middle, and unleashed a fierce array of strokes towards the latter half of his innings to hasten RR's run chase. MI were left to rue the fact that Quinton de Kock, left dehydrated after cracking a magnificent 52-ball 81 (6x4, 4x6) couldn't come out to keep wickets when they were fielding. "Stokesky is injured and replaced by Liam Livingstone, Gowtham is back as well". Losing wickets at regular intervals as they tried to finish with a flourish, MI managed to score 61 runs in the last five overs for the loss of three wickets. However, Hardik Pandya played some jaw-dropping strokes and blasted to 28 off 11 balls with one four and three sixes. Instead, Sanju Samson, who took the gloves in the previous match should make it as his record against Mumbai Indians is terrific and will enjoy the brilliant batting surface in Mumbai. "It's a bat first wicket, put the runs on the board and then field when it's a lot cooler".

There were questions about his ability to win a major tournament, but those have all ended following the Masters victory. The president is an avid golfer who played a round with Woods at Trump's golf club in Jupiter, Florida, in February.

Wicketkeeping: It will be a tricky choice to pick between the two stalwart keepers - Quinton de Kock or Jos Buttler.

Corey Anderson's innings of 95 from 44 balls that included 6 sixes helped Mumbai Indians scale down the target of 190 set by Rajasthan.

Meanwhile, it was Rohit's 100th match as captain for Mumbai Indians (including the now defunct Champions League T20 games) and it was Mumbai's overall 200th match.
