IPL 2018 HIGHLIGHTS, MI vs RRINDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE (IPL) 2018 MATCH 47, MUMBAI INDIANS vs RAJASTHAN ROYALS: Coverage of the match no. 47 of Indian Premier League 2018 between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. A power-packed display from Rajasthan Royals has led them to a thumping victory. No matter how many adjectives do you use, you won't find an apt term to praise Jos Buttler. He played sensible cricket, picked his spots to perfection and kept on finding the boundaries when needed. A perfect example of how a chase needs to be paced. 5 consecutive fifties in a row tells you the story of his dominance. On a hard and true surface, the Mumbai Indians bowlers more or less failed to hit their mark. The Pandya brothers were good with the ball but didn't find enough support on the day. The cameo from Samson at the fag end was also instrumental in putting a full stop to Mumbai's chances. A disappointing loss for them while the visitors are going from strength-to-strength.

Here's skipper @ImRo45's take on MI's brand of cricket, preparations for the upcoming games and more in today's episode of Captain's Corner.#CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvRR pic.twitter.com/zL1ABs5ZrZ
Brief Preview: Having notched up three straight wins after a string of losses, Mumbai Indians would be looking to defeat Rajasthan Royals and inch closer to a playoffs berth when the two sides face each other in an Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. It has been a dramatic turnaround for the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians after a string of losses early in the tournament. The two back-to-back wins against Kolkata Knight Riders, especially their massive 102 run win in Kolkata have boosted the confidence of the defending champs.
Courtesy that win, MI are on the fourth spot with 10 points from 11 games. Rajasthan Royals are also on same 10 points from 11 matches and both sides know they would be playing a do-or-die match tomorrow. The losing side tomorrow will be virtually out of the reckoning for a playoffs berth. (Read Full Match Preview)
