IPL 2022 Points Table Update, Latest Orange Cap, Purple Cap Lists After RR vs MI Match 44
IPL 2022: Gujarat Titans beat Royal Challengers Bangalore to keep up their incredible run of form at the top of the table, while Mumbai Indians finally got off the mark.
On Saturday, Mumbai Indians rode on Suryakumar Yadav's half-century against Rajasthan Royals to register their first win of the season after a disastrous start to their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 campaign which saw them lose the first eight matches. Jos Buttler's 67 was not enough for Rajasthan, who would be disappointed with their performance with the bat. Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli hit his first half-century of the season, but Royal Challengers Bangalore slumped to a six-wicket defeat against the rampant Gujarat Titans, who have all but sealed a spot in the playoffs. Rahul Tewatia and David Miller starred in yet another thrilling chase for the Titans, who were under the pump at one point.
