Jos Buttler, Ajinkya Rahane and Sanju Samson ensured that Rajasthan Royals could stroll to the target in the death overs but the Royals never make it that easy for themselves. After Samson fell, Rajasthan lost four wickets in 10 balls to give Mumbai Indians the advantage.
However, it was too little for MI to defend in the end with Alzarri Joseph unable to bowl the last over due to sustaining an injury while saving a boundary. Hardik Pandya was given the ball and Shreyas Gopal hit a four off the third ball to end the match.
MI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Alzarri Joseph, Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Behrendoff
RR: Ajinkya Rahane (c), Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Ashton Turner, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, K Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat
