Rajasthan Royals survived a late implosion to beat Mumbai Indians by 4 wickets and three balls to spare at the IPL match at the Wankhede in Mumbai on Saturday. Jos Buttler was the star of the show with the bat. The Royals opener plundered 89 runs off 43 balls, picking out an Alzarri Joseph over for special attention. Following Buttler's dismissal, RR lost a few wickets in quick succession and the match sprang back to life in the last three overs. However, Rohit Sharma threw the ball to Hardik Pandya in the 20th over despite Jason Behrendorff and Joseph having one over each up their sleeves. Shreyas Gopal finally hit the winning runs with three balls to spare. Put into bat first, Mumbai Indians had scored 187/5 in their 20 overs. Rohit Sharma (47) and Quinton de Kock (81) were the main run-getters. Hardik Pandya (28*) also came up with a valuable cameo at the end. Openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock got the home team off to a rollicking start and it looked as if they would cross 200. However, Jofra Archer (3/39) took some important wickets to peg the scoring rate back. Shreyas Gopal (0/21) also put pressure on the home team with his tidy bowling. (SCORECARD)

    Four! Gopal hits the winning runs

    Shreyas Gopal hits a four to end what has been a heart-stopping last few overs of the match. Rajasthan Royals win by 4 wickets with 3 balls to spare.
  • 19:36 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Gopal skies it. Ball falls between two fielders. Another effort in the field that could eventually let MI down. Need 4 runs off 4 balls. 
  • 19:35 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Hardik Pandya given the ball

    20th over to be bowled by Pandya. Jason Behrendorff and Alzarri Joseph had one over left each.
  • 19:34 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Ishan Kishan drops a catch

    Pressure! Pressure! Telling on everybody. Bumrah could have got another wicket there. RR need 6 runs in the last over.
  • 19:33 (IST)Apr 13, 2019


    What luck for Shreyas Gopal and Rajasthan Royals. Edge runs down to the boundary.
  • 19:32 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Top class fielding from Alzarri Joseph

    What a stop on the boundary line from Alzarri Joseph! It's all happening here. Gopal hit that well, but that is top quality fielding from Alzarri Joseph to cut off that boundary. May have got himself injured in the process as well. Mumbai Indians physios are on the ground. RR need 11 runs off 9 balls.
  • 19:27 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Bumrah gets Smith out!

    What a match this has been! Who is the favourite now? Surely Mumbai Indians! Steve Smith goes for 12. RR 174/6. Need 14 runs off 11 balls.
  • 19:26 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Bumrah bowls the 19th

    Shreyas Gopal promoted to No.7.
  • 19:25 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Livingstone bowled

    Unbelievable! What last-minute drama! Rajasthan Royals lose their fifth wicket. Livingstone went for the big shot but that Krunal Pandya ball finds its way to his stumps. RR 174/5 after 18 overs. Need 14 runs off the last two balls. They are running out of batsmen now though.
  • 19:24 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Liam Livingstone the new batsman

    Steve Smith needs to shepherd the Royals chase in this last phase. 16 runs to get. 15 balls. Could RR be heading for yet another implosion?
  • 19:22 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Tripathi is out!

    Do we have a twist in the tail? Mumbai Indians get another wicket! Krunal Pandya the bowler, Hardik Pandya the catcher. RR need 17 off 17.
  • 19:20 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Rahul Tripathi joins Steve Smith

    The Royals need 17 runs in the last three overs.
  • 19:18 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Samson given out lbw

    Bumrah the man for Mumbai Indians! Samson has gone for the review though. Needed to be convinced by Smith to go for the review. Decision remains out! RR lose their third. Need 18 runs in 19 balls.
  • 19:14 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Box seat!

  • 19:12 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Swept for four by Samson

    Samson has kept his score ticking without playing any flashy shots. 10 runs off the 16th over. 20 more to get in the last four. And we head into the last Timeout of the match. Surely...surely this match has gone out of Mumbai Indians' grasp.
  • 19:10 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Four for Smith

    Edge flies past the keeper and into the third man fence. When it rains, it pours and it's pouring hard on Mumbai Indians now. RR need 26 off 26 balls.
  • 19:09 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    RR 158/2 after 15 overs

    The visitors need 30 runs in 30 balls. Steve Smith and Sanju Samson keeping it simple. Doing the job in singles.
  • 19:06 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Hardik Pandya bowls his first over

    RR only need 33 runs off 34 balls now. Perhaps MI are hoping for the visitors to make a mistake. Or maybe Alzarri Joseph will not be given a fourth over after that hammering he suffered at Buttler's hand.
  • 19:05 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    No doubts about today's MoM if Rajasthan win

  • 19:03 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Steve Smith the new man in

    Steve Smith has come in at No.4. The Royals only need to bat sensibly from here onwards and this match will be in the bag. Need 37 off 38 balls.
  • 19:01 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Buttler is out!

    What a carnivalesque show Buttler has put up here! Tremendous entertainment! Chahar gets him out though. Buttler could only connect the bottom of his bat with that ball and holes out in the deep. Buttler goes for a 43-ball 89. RR need 41 off 40 balls.
  • 18:59 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Buttler has murdered that over

    6,4,4,4,4,6. Do you believe that? Alzarri Joseph surely doesn't. Not yet. And to think, he came up with the greatest bowling performance in IPL history in the last match. RR 146/1 after 13 overs. Has Buttler sealed this match in that over?
  • 18:57 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Another four!

    6,4,4,4,4 in this over so far. Oh Alzarri Joseph!
  • 18:56 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    4,4 for Buttler

    Buttler is peppering every part of the field with boundaries. He must be seeing the ball like a cannonball today.
  • 18:54 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Six for Buttler again!

    Alzarri Joseph back into the attack. Buttler seem to not care who is bowling. Another six hit with seemingly minimum effort.
  • 18:54 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    RR cannot have enough of Buttler

  • 18:52 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Samson hits a six!

    Deepak Chahar bearing the brunt of the Royals assault. Samson steps out. Full toss. Gets the treatment. 15 runs off that over. RR 118/1 after 12 overs.
  • 18:51 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Huge six! Buttler

    Steps out and lofts that Deepak Chahar ball into the second tier. Buttler has now taken a special liking for Mumbai's spinners. Best player of spin on display so far today.
  • 18:49 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    RR 103/1 after 11 overs

    Some damage control by Bumrah. Just three runs off it. 
  • 18:46 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Bumrah is back

    Went for runs in his first overs. Can this be redemption time for Bumrah? Mumbai Indians need their main man to fire.
  • 18:45 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Another four! Buttler moves on to 50

    Behrendorff will be frustrated by that. Buttler is not looking like he is even exerting himself. Played off his pads to the fine leg fence this time. RR 100/1 after 10 overs.
  • 18:41 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Timed for four by Samson

    Behrendorff back into the attack and Samson decides he will take on the seamer. Lifted over the infield with great timing. Fielders can only watch. The Royals are cruising!
  • 18:39 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Six more!

    What an unlikely shot for six. Didn't look he put much effort into that but that still flies across the ropes straight down the ground. Buttler has taken charge here. 16 runs off that over. RR 89/1 after 9 overs.
  • 18:38 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Buttler takes on Krunal Pandya too! Six!

    First ball of Krunal Pandya's over goes for six. Conceded five runs in his last over. Buttler has decided the Royals cannot afford to let Mumbai's spinners take control of proceedings.
  • 18:36 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Buttler takes on Chahar! Six!

    Chahar got the better of Buttler in his last over. This time though, Buttler decides he has to take Chahar on. Hits him straight and high. Maximum! Nine runs off that over. RR 73/1 after 8 overs.
  • 18:34 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Fatigue for QDK?

  • 18:34 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Good start for Krunal Pandya

    Only five runs off it. Also got the big wicket of Rahane. Sanju Samson has joined Jos Buttler for the Royals. MI 64/1 after 7 overs
  • 18:30 (IST)Apr 13, 2019

    Disaster for Rajasthan Royals! Rahane out

    Rahane, after looking great for the first 6 overs, perishes in trying to take on Krunal Pandya. Finds the fielder in the deep. RR 60/1 after 6.2 overs.
