LAST MATCH SUMMARY: IPL Match score updates :

Buttler-Chahal shines in Royals’ second win

Mumbai Indians are coming after a bad loss faced against the Rajasthan Royals on Saturday afternoon. The five-time champions, Mumbai Indians have not been able to win a single match till now and it is going against their reputation. MI, who created a new core of players, have not been able to fill confidence in their skill set and is struggling in both the batting and bowling department. In the Rajasthan match, Mumbai had only toss in their favor and lost the match by 23 runs as they could not chase down the target.

Jos Buttler hammered Mumbai bowlers and smashed a swashbuckling 100 and his second in IPL career. The only contributions to look at from Mumbai Indians side are by Jasprit Bumrah, who scalped three wickets for the figures of 4-0-17-3 and supported by Tymal Mills. In the batting department, Tilak Verma and Ishan Kishan tonked their fifties but could not get the ball rolling.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders are also coming after a big win faced against Punjab Kings, KKR dominated PBKS by their bowling. Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opt to bowl and this decision made the game in their favor. KKR’s bowling ran through PBKS’ batting line-up, the main destructor for PBKS was Umesh Yadav, who scalped four wickets and took crucial wickets of the middle order. Moreover, Varun Chakravarthy justified his price tag with being economical in the process by only conceding 14 runs in his 4 overs. PBKS were bundled out for 137 runs.

KKR fans were expecting the match to be over by 15th over and with a big margin of wickets. They were kept by the edge of their seats as Kolkata’s batsmen showed a batting collapse and nearly lost the match. Rahul Chahar set the tone for PBKS bowling to pressurise KKR batsmen and took four wickets in the process. However, Andre Russell finished the job for KKR by smashing 70 runs in just 33 balls and PBKS lost the match by 6 wickets.

The pitch of Pune Stadium will be fresh and looks similar to the one used in the previous game. It will have a good cary and bounce, and it’s hard to beat as a bowler due to its length and pace. The dew factor is also a concern here.
