RR vs MI Highlights, IPL 2021: Kishan's unbeaten 50, Coulter-Nile's 4-fer power Mumbai to 8-wicket win against Rajasthan
- IPL 2021 Highlights, Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Mumbai Indians (MI) Latest Match updates: An unbeaten 25-ball 50 from Ishan Kishan, a four-wicket haul from Nathan Coulter-Nile, and an impressive performance from the other bowlers guided Mumbai to a rampant 8-wicket win against Rajasthan.
IPL 2021 Highlights, Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Mumbai Indians (MI): In response, MI openers got the team off to a blistering start. Rohit smashed 22 of 13 balls before being dismissed by Chetan Sakariya. But that did not hamper Mumbai's progress and Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav continued the onslaught to take MI to 56/2 after 6 overs. Eventually, an unbeaten 25-ball 50 from Kishan guided MI to an 8-wicket win with 11.4 overs to spare. With this win, MI levelled KKR on points but are a place below them in 5th due to an inferior net run-rate. Mutafizur dismissed SKY on 13. MI bowlers gave their team a bright start. Courtesy of Nathan Coulter-Nile dismissing Yashasvi Jaiswal (10), Jasprit Bumrah removing Evin Lewis (24), and Jimmy Neesham sending Sanju Samson (2) packing, RR could only reach 44/3 after 7 overs. In the next 3 overs, RR scored just 6 runs and lost two more wickets as NCN and Neesham struck once again to send Shivam Dube and Glenn Phillips back to the pavilion. Eventually, Coulter-Nile bagged four wickets, while Jimmy Neesham picked up three and Bumrah bagged a brace as Mumbai restricted MI to 90/9 in 20 overs.

RR vs MI: Jaydev Unadkat speaks to the broadcasters
"There is variation in the bowling attack thanks to the left-armers in our team. There are a few youngsters as well who are playing their first IPL. The thinking on the part of the management would be to induce the surprise factor and bring to the table as many variations as they can. I am playing the every odd game. I am trying to prove that I am good enough to be in the XI. No one is a youngster at this stage. Everyone is a contender. Whoever is doing well is getting a game and trying to do well. The last win was important. And we do talk about momentum. We do get some good momentum after winning such games. No one was happy after the bowling performance in the last five overs. But the batters made a great comeback to give us momentum. It is easier to say when it comes to following the process. Sometimes there is hardly a gap between games. Whatever you can correct, the performance will anyways get better."
Oct 05, 2021 06:54 PM IST
RR vs MI: Jayant Yadav speaks to the broadcasters
“It has always been how the captain and the management have wanted to use the resources. It has been a clear cut communication since I have arrived at Mumbai. As a professional cricketer, in a big tournament like this you need to prepare yourselves and be ready. You have to be ready on your toes. It is a must win game. There is a great sense of belief in the team that we can do it. The atmosphere in the dressing has been about winning the crunch battles. Just keep it simple and follow the process.”

IPL 2021 Live Score: PITCH REPORT
The pitch we are using has been used on two previous occasions, both times the team batting second has won. First one was the RCB-CSK game where 156 was chased and then recently the DC vs MI game. The surface has got a bit of sheen, not the old Sharjah sheen. Run-scoring has been tough, it does look dark and patchy. Don't think run-scoring is going to be easy. Anyone winning the toss is going to bat second."
