Player of the match: Jos Buttler
 
Right then, that is all that we have for you from this Indian Premier League contest! Catch all the live action from the second match of the evening as the Gujarat Titans take on the Delhi Capitals. Until next time then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, and my partner, Pratyush Rohra, bidding you adieu! Stay safe! 
Jos Buttler has been awarded the Player of the Match award for his blistering century which helped RR notch up a match-winning total.

Jos Buttler (Player of the Match): Feels fantastic, delighted to contribute. A little nervous at half-time but delighted at the result. Have not played cricket for a couple of months so turning up for the IPL fresh. I always have confidence in white ball cricket. I have had plenty of time before the game started to work on my skills in the nets. (on the catch) I was delighted to take that. 

Rohit Sharma (losing captain): They batted pretty well to get to 193. Buttler played an exceptional innings. But I though 193 on that pitch, we could have chased that down when we needed 70 in 7 overs with 7 wickets to go. But we can learn from that and come out better. (positives from the game) Bumrah bowling well and Talk played exceptionally well. Ishan's batting was terrific as well. One of them should have stuck around till the end. (On Suryakumar's return) Of course he is a key player for us. Once he is fit, he will come in straightaway. Finger injuries are tricky, we'll give him all the time that he needs. 

Sanju Samson (winning captain): Feels really good, it was a really good match. Till the end, the game was still on. Well done for a good team effort. Playing a quality team like MI, they will come at you. Having trust on my bowlers was at the back of my mind. They know their plans, they know their fields. It is just about having trust in them and sitting back and watching. It is important to take your lessons and moving on no matter whether you win or lose. 
Mumbai Indians 170/8 (20) lose to Rajasthan Royals by 23 runs

Tilak Varma 61(33) | Ishan Kishan 54(43)
Yuzvendra Chahal 2-26(4) | Navdeep Saini 2-36(3)

Right then, quite a sorry state for the Mumbai Indians as they collect their second loss on the trot. The chase seemed to be going all well for them but losing wickets in clumps in the middle overs has been the cause of their downfall. The mighty Mumbai are yet to get off the mark while the Royals collect their second win on the trot, a dominating one too filled with moments to celebrate for them. 

Rohit Sharma perished early following which Anmolpreet Singh once again fell for a paltry score. Rajasthan seemed to have the upper hand but Ishan Kishan and Tilak Varma stitched together a brilliant partnership which kept Mumbai in the game for a long time. Samson's decision to reintroduce Boult into the attack paid rich dividends as he snared the wicket of Kishan following which MI's middle order collapsed. 

Tim David, Daniel Sams and Kieron Pollard, the three batters expected to do the big hitting for MI, failed to come to the party and that has resulted in MI's loss. The Royals were terrific with the ball in hand. Yuzi Chahal and R Ashwin spun a web and the two of them have combined figures of 8-0-56-3. Trent Boult was exceptional at the top as always and his wicket was the turning point in the contest.

19.6 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, POLLARD HOLES OUT TO BUTTLER! Almost fitting that the Englishman has the last say in this match. After all, he did have the first one as well. Low full toss outside off as Pollard looks to launch it over extra cover. No timing on it though and he's picked out Buttler at deep extra cover for a simple catch. The Royals make it two wins out of two and move to the top of the table. Mumbai still have to wait for their first win. Rajasthan Royals win by 23 runs.
19.5 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, nails the full and wide yorker outside off-stump again, carved out to point, no run
19.4 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, finds the low full toss outside the off-stump again, Pollard can't get underneath it. Driven to long-off, dot ball
19.3 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, on length outside the off-stump, Pollard drives it on the up to find the man at long-off, no run
24 runs, 4 deliveries
4 sixes needed
19.2 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, DOT BALL. That's what the Royals were looking for. Perfectly executed full and wide delivery inside the tramline as Pollard swings and misses
19.1 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Missed his full and wide yorker with the slower one. Pollard uses his long levers to reach for this and cream it through extra cover to find the boundary 
19.1 Navdeep Saini to Kieron Pollard, wide. Not the ideal start. The idea was right though. Looking to keep it full and wide but it's on the wrong side of the tramline.
Navdeep Saini is back to bowl the final over
Quite a daunting task lies ahead for Kieron Pollard if he wishes to guide Mumbai Indians to what will be an unexpected victory here. As many as 29 runs needed off the final over but with Polly in the middle, MI will certainly keep hope that he can pull off a blinder. Pollard is one of the few batters to hit six sixes in an over. Can he repeat his heroics?

18.6  Prasidh Krishna to Jasprit Bumrah, on the good length but it's sliding down the leg side as Bumrah flicks it to short fine leg, dot ball. 
Jasprit Bumrah, right handed batter, makes his way to the middle
18.6 Prasidh Krishna to Kieron Pollard, DRAMA! Everywhere! What's happened here? Ashwin's run out off a no-ball. It was short angled into Pollard as he missed his pull. He's lost his bat in the process but he still manages to get to the other end for a single. He must be wishing he hadn't though, because it's a no-ball for height. 
18.5 Prasidh Krishna to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Full and wide outside the off-stump again, Pollard throws his bat at it and slices it over short third man to find the boundary 
18.4 Prasidh Krishna to Kieron Pollard, DROPPED A DOLLY! Still a dot ball though. It's all happening there! Full and wide outside off stump as Pollard slices it high into the evening sky towards deep ppiont. Jaiswal's there but he's simply let this one burst through his hands.
