Though RR emerged victoriously at the end at the Wankhede Stadium and secured 2 more points to maintain their victory consistency, this season. They batted first and put up 222 for the loss of 2 wickets in 20 overs, credit goes to Buttler’s 3rd century this season. DC was able to score 207 for the loss of 8 wickets. Here are 3 factors to consider from the match that led RR to victory.

    Jos Buttler’s third century of the season

    Jos Buttler has been in phenomenal form in the present season of the Indian Premier League, and it seems like there is no stopping the Englishman. The scored his third hundred in this campaign, 116 of 65 balls with 9 fours and 9 sixes with a strike rate of 178.46. Along with him, Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson played well too, scoring 54 of 35 and 46 of 19 respectively.

    Prasidh Krishna’s terrific penultimate over

    Though RR put up a mammoth target, DC was closing near, with the help of Lalit Yadav, who scored 37 out of 24, and West Indian power-hitter Rovman Powell, who was an unbelievable 36 of 15 deliveries, with a strike rate of 240. Though Prasidh Krishan bowled the first two balls to Yadav dot in the 19th over, got Yadav out in the third one, and bowled the entire over the maiden. This was where DC was completely out of the game.

    Stopping Rovman Powell

    Though everyone thought that DC was out of the game as they needed 36 off the last over, where 6 sixes would have been needed. By amazing everyone, the thriller match got more of an epic battle as Powell sent the first three balls out of the park.

    Though there was a stop after the third six, as the DC dugout was calling for a no-ball, the umpires didn’t check it. In the next three balls, no boundary came, and Obed McCoy was able to defend it successfully. Though you never know, if that distraction didn’t happen, then we might have seen a new record of chasing down and hitting 36 in the last over.
