Suryakumar Yadav and de Kock continued to find boundaries and score quickly before Morris dismissed the Indian star in the 10th over. Mustafizur Rahman got a wicket Krunal Pandya 26-ball 39. Chris Morris has taken two wickets for Rajasthan. Mumbai Indians won by 7 wickets.

PLAYER OF THE MATCH:- Quinton de Kock

Sanju Samson โ€“ Surely, a few runs short, maybe around 20-25 runs short. We were going on nicely (with the bat), but didnโ€™t finish well. The bowlers have been doing their job well, but as batsmen, we need to get them a good score to defend. It was a good wicket, the ball was coming on nicely and they (MI) batted really well, as a team, we will need to score more runs as a batting group. Trust yourself, play positive and fearless cricket โ€“ thatโ€™s all one should do.
