Mumbai Indians finally end their winning drought against Rajasthan Royals in TATA IPL 2022

    Mumbai Indians finally end their victory drought in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League, by defeating Rajasthan Royals who have been in spectacular form this season. At first, MI bowled and limited RR within 158 and picked up 6 of their batsmen, and in return, Mumbai Indians chased down the total in the last over, with 4 balls left. Here are 3 facts to consider from the match, which led Mumbai Indians to secure the win.

    Jos Buttler was the only one to stand for long for RR

    Except Jos Buttler, no other R batsmen could stand for long. It was for the contribution of Jos Buttler who scored 67 of 52 with 5 fours and 4 sixes, that led RR to put up at least 158, which is more or less a defendable total. Also, Ravichandran Ashwin coming at number six, played a speedy 21 of 9 balls with 3 fours and a six, for which RR was able to cross the 150-mark. No other RR batsmen except these two could even cross the score of 20.

    Suryakumar Yadav’s important half-century for Mumbai Indians

    Suryakumar Yadav who came to bat at number 3 in this match, scored a brilliant half-century of 51 of 39 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes, which played a vital part in the run chase, after losing skipper Rohit Sharma early. Also, Ishan Kishan and Tilak Verma played their parts, scoring 26 of 18 and 35 of 30 respectively.

    Tim David lowering the asking rate and Sams finishing off in style

    Though the equation was never that tough, at a time, Pollard and Tim David were batting, and no other typical batters were there after them, and still, MI had to go a bit longer to secure the win. Pollard has not been in form this season, but Tim David did his job well, scoring a fast 20 of 9 balls with 2 fours and 1 six, with a strike rate of 222.22. Daniel Sams coming to bat at the last over hit the first ball out of the park leading Mumbai Indians to the win.
