  • IPL 2022, MI vs RR Highlights: Ishan Kishan and 19-year-old Tilak Varma made it look like Mumbai Indians may be cruising to victory in their chase of a target of 194 but Yuzvendra Chahal led the way in turning things around for RR after Jos Buttler became the first player to score a century this season.

IPL 2022, Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Highlights: Jos Buttler was the protagonist early on for the Rajasthan Royals with his second IPL century after which Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal took over in stopping Mumbai Indians' march to the 194-run target. It was a match that ebbed and flowed and both teams had their low points but in the end, it was RR that prevailed. MI, however, seem to have chanced upon a dependable talent in the form of 19-year-old Tilak Varma, who blazed 61 off just 33 balls. Varma and Ishan Kishan, who himself scored 54 off 43, put up a partnership of 81 runs off just 54 balls, at which point it looked like MI might win the game. However, Chahal and Ashwin put the breaks on the chase and MI ended up falling 23 runs short.

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: RR beat MI by 23 runs

    Back-to-back defeats for the Mumbai Indians to start off this season. The third ball of the over was a dot ball, leaving MI needing 24 off 3 and Pollard knew the game is up. The next two were dot balls after which Pollard tried to go for a big shot off the last ball. He only sends it straight down the throat of Jos Buttler, who simply couldn't be kept out of the game today at any point. 

    MI end their innings on 170/8.

    MI vs RR Live Score: FOUR!

    MI vs RR IPL 2022 Live Updates: 29 runs needed off the last over 

    Short from Prasidh Krishna and Pollard loses his bat while trying to pull. He takes the single anyhow, Ashwin was not ready for it and he is run out by Samson. That leaves Pollard on strike for the last over but he needs to smash a whopping 29 runs in it. 

  • Apr 02, 2022 07:21 PM IST

    IPL 2022, MI vs RR Live score: DROPPED!

    That is an extraordinary drop. Pollard throws his bat at the fourth delivery of the over and it's flying straight into the hands of Yashasvi Jaiswal at deep point. Looks like the most straightforward of catches but Jaiswal drops it.

    IPL 2022 MI vs RR Live Updates: Prasidh Krishna bowls the 19th

    MI need 39 from the last two overs. Pollard is on strike, he has made just 12 off 12. The match can be won or lost in this over. Thus far, RR have done a great job of pulling things back after MI were seemingly cruising when Ishan Kishan and Tilak Varma were going big guns. 

  • Apr 02, 2022 07:11 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: SIX! Pollard power!

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: Karun Nair spills Cahal's hat-trick!

    Googly from Chahal and it does Murugan Ashwin completely. It takes the outside edge and Karun Nair at first slip spills it. Chahal puts the collar of shirt in between his teeth but what an over this has turned out to be. RR well on top now. 

  • Apr 02, 2022 06:59 PM IST

    MI vs RR Live score: Back to back wickets for Chahal!

    Well this has silenced the MI fans. Chahal first gets Tim David LBW. He takes a review and the umpire's call was upheld. And then a sensational catch from superman Buttler to dismiss Daniel Sams. It leaves Chahal on a hat-trick.

    MI vs RR Live Score: OUT! That's it for Varma

    He reverse sweeps Ashwin for a six over third man off the first ball of the 15th over. Ashwin then takes significant pace off the ball and deceives Varma. The ball goes past him and takes the stumps. A blinder of an innings ends.

    MI vs RR IPL 2022 Live Updates: Half century for Tilak Varma

    It has come in just 28 balls. He is just 19 years old so this is the first of many half centuries he will score for sure. What an innings this has been and despite having Pollard at the other end, RR will now want to get this man out as quickly as possible.

    Navdeep Saini with a belter of a catch to end Ishan Kishan's innings. Kishan tries to pull Boult and that ball is barrelling to the boundary. Saini takes the catch at deep backward square leg but falls while doing so. He seems to have hurt the back of his head in the process and he ends up going off the field with James Neesham coming in his place. We are yet to see if there will be a concussion replacement.

    The 19-year-old was a gun in the field today and has now taken this chase by the scruff of its neck. Beautiful front foot loft from Varma and it ends up hitting the cameraperson behind the boundary line. Boult, who was the closest fielder, checks up on him, seems he is ok. Varma has raced tom 47 off 25 balls, a strike rate of nearly 185!

    MI vs RR IPL 2022 Live Updates: SIX!

    IPL 2022, MI vs RR Live score: Buttler takes the Orange Cap

    This is what he had to say to the broadcasters in the mid-innings break: "It's a great feeling and nice to contribute it. Good score or not? Hard to tell it with one side being a short boundary. Mumbai always attack me with Bumrah - he is one of the best in the world. I thought I did know (reaching a ton with an inside edge), but I got frustrated at the end as I slowed down. At the start of the day, a target of 194, we would've taken it. Shimron Hetmyer played a fantastic hand, we were about to lift-off, but never got away from them."

  • Apr 02, 2022 05:27 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match Today: Rohit vs Boult

  • Apr 02, 2022 05:14 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: GONE! Buttler falls

    The Bumrah Yorker does it for Buttler. Inswinger right into the blockhole and Buttler could do absolutely nothing about it. A great innings from Buttler but this over will hurt RR.

    MI vs RR IPL 2022 Live Updates: 2nd IPL century for Jos Buttler

    Well that is cheeky from Buttler. MI goes for an LBW appeal which is not given, the batsmen run a single. MI rake the review and as it turned out, Buttler had got some bat on it. He didn't celebrate the century after taking the single though, keeping everyone guessing and possibly cosing MI a review. 

  • Apr 02, 2022 05:02 PM IST

    IPL 2022, MI vs RR Live score: SIX! Hetmyer keeps going

    The very first ball of the next over, bowled by Mills, is mowed over midwicket for six. Big shout for LBW off the next ball and the umpire raises his finger. Hetmyer, however, takes the review and replays show that the impact had come outside the line. The umpire reverses his decision and the next ball is cut away by Hetmyer for another four.

  • Apr 02, 2022 04:59 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match Today: 26 runs off the 17th

    That is the second 26-run over of this innings. While the first one was Buttler, a bona fide international cricketer, going after the lesser known Basil Thampi, the second one starred Hetmyer smashing his West Indies captain Kieron Pollard all over the park. The two back to back sixes are followed by two consecutive fours after which Pollard sent a ball wide. The next ball goes for four leg byes and then Hetmyer ends the over with a single to keep strike. Longer wait then for Buttler's century. RR 170/3 in 17 overs

    A good over from Sams for the 16th. Just six runs coming off it, with two coming from wides and the rest from singles. In fact, there was a slight scare for Buttler after the second last of those singles as he found himself about a quarter of the way down the pitch when Hetmyer screamed at him to get back. He does so, and stays on 98.

  • Apr 02, 2022 04:42 PM IST

    MI vs RR Live Score: OUT! Pollard gets Samson

    Breakthrough at last for MI but Samson has done his job. Samson tries to pull a slow delivery, doesn't quite get it right and holes out at deep midwicket.

    IPL 2022, MI vs RR Live score: FOUR! Buttler moves into the 80s

    IPL 2022 MI vs RR Live Updates: Strategic Timeout

    The timeout is taken right after the end of the powerplay. A see-saw match so far. Bumrah put MI ahead with the wicket of Jaiswal early on but then Buttler and Padikkal then got things going for RR. However, Rajasthan will be hurt by the dismissal of Padikkal off the last ball of the powerplay. Kieron Pollard bowls the first over after powerplay.

  • Apr 02, 2022 04:00 PM IST

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: OUT! Padikkal falls

    After that bumper over from Thampi, RR were kept quier by Murugan Ashwin and then Tymal Mills. Padikkal decides to take on Mills off what was the last ball of the powerplay. He only gets a top edge on it, the ball goes high up in the air and Rohit Sharma makes no mistake with the catch.

    MI vs RR IPL 2022 Live Updates: FOUR! Padikkal starts off with a beauty

    IPL 2022, MI vs RR Live score: OUT! Bumrah strikes

    Jaiswal had only faced one ball so far and his second leads to his fall. Good length delivery on the hips from Bumrah, certainly not his best, but Jaiswal hits that straight to square leg. Bumrah finally opens his account for the season, he had gone wicketless in the previous match.

    IPL 2022 Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match Today: SIX! Buttler tees off

    Hip-high short ball from Daniel Sams and Buttler swivels and deposits it over midwicket. THat one was hit with disdain and a good response to the previous ball that crashed into Buttler's rib cage.

    IPL 2022 MI vs RR Live Updates: 4 runs off the 1st over

    MI vs RR Live Score: Trent Boult up against Mumbai Indians

    Boult formed what has to be one the most lethal new ball pairings of all time in the IPL with Bumrah in the 2020 season. Now he faces his former team mates. "Obviously, good memories in the MI jersey, but excited for the chance with Rajasthan Royals. Looking forward to this encounter. For me, it's just about keeping it simple like I naturally do. I pitch the ball up and get it moving around. Different ground, day game, let's see what happens... Obviously, very early in the tournament and different to the conditions in Pune. We're here to play the big boys and enjoy ourselves. Never played here before but don't have too many experiences to draw from. Nice and comforting to throw the ball to Ashwin and Chahal in the middle overs," Boult told the hosts broadcasters before the start of the match.

    “We have to be happy with that (batting first). We would also have bowled on this wicket, being an afternoon game and a different venue, but happy to bat. Chatter in the camp is to be a bit smarter. We are playing different teams in different conditions, different venues, so it is all about understanding the demands and applying your game plan accordingly. Standards have to be kept throughout the tournament. We did a good job in the auctions to get a very strong squad. We have one change Navdeep Saini has come in for Coulter-Nile.”

    MI vs RR Live Score: Ishan Kishan

    Ishan was the most expensive player of the auction and ended up struggling for a while playing for India. But that seems to be in the past and he smashed an unbeaten 81 off 48 balls in their first match of the season. If he and Rohit can continue in this vein of form, RR may have a task in their hands.

    IPL 2022 MI vs RR Live Updates: Flexibility that SKY provides

    MI were clearly missing a reliable hand in the middle order in their defeat to DC- and Suryakumar has shown in the recent past that he can play multiple roles. He scored 34 off 18 balls and 65 from 31 deliveries in the first and third T20Is respectively against West Indies, each time rescuing India from a tricky position. "To have that kind of a flexibility is always an advantage," said director of cricket operations Zaheer Khan added. "Tactically you will have that advantage, and that's how we are also looking at it."

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: Rohit's aggressive approach

    Parthiv Patel, who played for Mumbai Indians under Rohit's captaincy, said that the 34-year-old seems to have deliberately taken a more aggressive approach since India's losses to Pakistan and New Zealand in the T20 World Cup. Rohit's innings in T20 internationals since that tournament has been characterised by a high strike rate and in MI's first game of the season, he scored 41 off 32 balls.

    MI vs RR Live Score: Player of the match for Samson?

    Samson won the player of the match in the second match of the season for four consecutive seasons between 2017 and 2020. He got off to a flier this season against SRH and so cannot be counted out for another player of the match performance.

    IPL 2022, MI vs RR Live score: Spotlight on Jasprit Bumrah

    Mumbai's batting looks decent with Ishan-Rohit pair at the top and Surya available to orchestrate the middle order. But they seek an improved bowling performance today. 

    The team will heavily rely on Jasprit Bumrah, who had a lacklustre outing against Delhi. He conceded 43 without taking a wicket. He will look to redeem himself today.

    IPL 2022 Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match Today: All eyes on Ishan Kishan

    While Rohit is on the cusp of 10,000 runs in T20s, the focus will be on Ishan Kishan, who had scored a brilliant 81 against Delhi. He was hit on the toe by a Shardul Thakur yorker and Aryan Juyal kept wickets in his place. But he's fit for this game.

    IPL 2022 Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals: Suryakumar Yadav returns

    Mumbai had a disappointing start to the season, losing by four wickets to Delhi Capitals. As the five-time champions seek first win of the season, they have got Suryakumar back in their batting attack. That would put a smile on fans' faces!

    MI vs RR Live Score: 10k loading for Rohit?

    Rohit Sharma is just 64 runs away from reaching 10,000 runs in T20 cricket. That will make him the 7th player, and the second player from India after Virat Kohli, to reach the milestone. Rohit has been going through a bit of a lean patch of late in the IPL and so, he will be hoping that he gets to that mark in this game itself.

    MI vs RR IPL 2022 Live Updates: Hello and welcome!

    Mumbai Indians could not defend a target of 178 in their first match, with the Delhi Capitals chasing it down with nearly two overs to spare. But it could well be the case that they shrugged if off as not too big a deal and could come blazing back to form in this game. It may not help Rajasthan Royals' case that they have a recent history of getting off to a good start and then fizzing out. Which team will follow, or avoid, their own history? Let's find out.
