Rajasthan Royals thrashed Mumbai Indians by nine wickets in Monday's match that saw a rain interruption.

While left-handed opening batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a hundred, medium-pace bowler Sandeep Sharma took 5-18 to help restrict Mumbai to 179-9.

Following its defeat, Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Hardik Pandya said that they have to accept their flaws and work on them in the coming days.

“What we can do is learn from this game and the mistakes which we have made, rectify it and make sure that we don't make it. Progression is very important. Within the team, individually, we will have to accept our flaws and maybe work on those,” Pandya, who replaced Rohit Sharma as MI's skipper, said.

Mumbai Indians, which won the toss, opted to bat first.

Rajashtan Royals (RR) has so far won seven out of the eight matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year so. The franchise won the first IPL in 2008.
