The Man Of the Match award has been given to Jos Buttler! His knock was the difference between the two sides, had it not been for him, Rajasthan would not have got to the total they did.
MI vs RR highlights: It seemed a cruise earlier with Kishan and Varma going great guns, their fifties giving the perfect platform to the run chase. With perfect batting conditions and a short boundary on one side, the odds were in favour of Rohit’s men.
However, Ashwin removed Varma in the 15th over and then Chahal struck twice in the very next over to send back David and Sams. The leggie should have had a hat-trick too, if not for Karun’s dropped catch at slip. A fine all-round performance from the Royals who rode on Buttler’s fab century to post a competitive total.
