MI vs RR Player of the Match: Jos Buttler
Jos Buttler was adjudged as the Player of the Match as there was no doubt that with him hitting only his second century and the first of the season by any batter in IPL 2022, nobody other than him could have deserved the award
MI vs RR Match Summary
Chasing the target of 194 runs was never going to be easy and it got tougher as Mumbai lost two quick wickets at the start of the match and reeled at 40-2 in the first four overs. Ishan Kishan then got along with youngster Tilak Varma as the two left-handers put on 81 in just 54 balls and lit up the chances of the Mumbai side before Boult got Ishan Kishan and Ashwin removed Varma with his slow off-spinner.
Soon Tim David perished as well and Daniel Sams was removed on the very next ball in the same over of Chahal who could have had a hat-trick if Karun Nair held on to the catch that flew off Murugan Ashwin’s bat in the second slip. Nevertheless, Kieron Pollard was the lone man left to win the game for Mumbai with 50 needed off the last three overs.
He failed to do so as with 29 needed off the last over Navdeep Saini only gave five runs and also got the wicket of Pollard on the last ball of the match.
Earlier in the day, after being asked to bat first, Rajasthan Royals scored 193-6 courtesy of a brilliant 100 off just 68 balls from Jos Buttler.
