IPL 2020 | Mumbai Indians beat RR after two seasons

A collective effort from the fast bowling contingent helped Mumbai Indians beat Rajasthan Royals in the 20th match of IPL 2020. Notably, the Rohit Sharma-led franchise won their first game against RR since 2015. Prior to this game, MI last clinched victory over them in that season as RR were banned for two seasons (2016 and 2017).

As MI elected to bat, openers Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma gave them an ideal start. However, both of them departed before the 10th over.

Top-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav (79*) picked up from there and powered MI to 193/4. His compatriot Hardik Pandya too remained unbeaten on 30* (19). In reply, RR fell 57 runs short despite Jos Buttler’s brilliant knock (70). He registered his eighth IPL fifty and finished on an unbeaten 79 (47). This has now become his personal-best score of the IPL.

Interestingly, his previous best score also came against RR (72). While his blistering knock was laced with 11 fours and 2 sixes, he recorded a strike-rate of 168.09.
