Right then. That’s it from the coverage of this game. Mumbai have won the game convincingly here. They have kept their playoffs hopes alive, going into their last game. Rajasthan, on the other hand, will now find it really difficult to make it to the playoffs. They will need a miracle to make it into the top four. The Indian T20 League action continues on 6th October 2021. This game will see a clash between Bangalore and Hyderabad which will kick off at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT). But as you all know the build-up begins quite early. Till then goodbye and take care!
Nathan Coulter-Nile is the Man of the Match. He says that he tried to keep it simple, it was a hard wicket to bat and they bowled really well. Shares that they just wanted to stick to good lines and make it tough for the batters. Tells that they have Boult and Bumrah upfront and they are world-class bowlers and they make his job easier.
Rohit Sharma, the skipper of Mumbai, says that they had to come here and play a good game as they wanted those 2 points. Adds that it was important for them to come out and bat freely at least at the start of the innings and they did so. Tells that they wanted Ishan Kishan to take his time and he did not tell anything to him when they were in the middle. Adds that they have been on and off in this season but credits his team for coming back strongly in this match. Signs off by saying that Kolkata's game is before Mumbai's last game so things would be pretty clear for them.
... PRESENTATION TIME ...
Ishan Kishan is there for a chat. He says that it is good to get runs for his team. States that he is feeling really good. Goes on to say that he thinks that it was good to field first as they got an idea about how to play on this wicket. Says that they planned to play straight and they executed really well. Tells that he feels ups and downs are a big part of life for any sportsman and they have a great supporting staff. Says that he had a chat with Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya and they have been really supportive. Adds that they have been talking about Kolkata losing their next game but they (Mumbai) need to play with the same energy in their last game.
Sanju Samson, the Rajasthan skipper, says that it was a challenging wicket to bat on, especially in the first innings and it was very different from Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Adds that Abu Dhabi was one of the best batting wickets but at Sharjah, it was tough. Goes on to say that, they would like to take some time off and they will try to play better in their last game. States that Mumbai came out strong and they batted really well.
Earlier on in the innings, after being put to bat, Rajasthan could not find any inspiration with the blade. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and Mumbai restricted them to a below-par score of 90 runs. Later, Mumbai came out to bat and chased down the target with ease.
Rajasthan had a difficult task ahead of them! They did not have enough runs to defend on the board and their bowlers were attacked from the word go. Mustafizur Rahman and Chetan Sakariya were the only bowlers who snared a wicket each. In the end, it was not a good day for Rajasthan.
Ishan Kishan rises from the ashes for Mumbai! They had 91 runs to chase down, to keep their hopes to get into the playoffs alive and they did that with ease. Rohit Sharma was on the attack from the word go. He smacked 14 runs in the very first over, to build a solid foundation for the chase. While Kishan started off slowly, he grew well into the innings. Once Sharma got out, Kishan took the charge along with Suryakumar Yadav and they grabbed a few quick boundaries. After the departure of SKY, it was all about Ishan Kishan. He went on to make his half-ton which came along with the winning runs. After a rough patch in this season, Kishan certainly needed an innings like this to boost his confidence.
A convincing victory for Mumbai. 91 was not a huge ask for their batters and they chased it down with ease. This is an important win for them, as the net run rate comes into play. The Rajasthan bowlers could not keep the run-flow in control and could not make it difficult for the opposition.
