IPL 2024 Points Table: Rajasthan Royals' hat-trick boosts them to top, Mumbai Indians continue to reel down

IPL 2024 Points Table: Rajasthan Royals completed a hat-trick of wins, while Mumbai Indians suffered a hat-trick of losses as the two find themselves at opposite ends of fortunes in the Indian Premier League 2024. The Royals steamrolled MI at Wankhede when they chased down 126 inside 16 overs.

Mumbai Indians' wait for their first win of IPL 2024 will continue as they suffered a third straight loss in the tournament. Hardik Pandya's MI was hammered by Rajasthan Royals- who made a hat-trick of wins in the ongoing season - at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. 

The Royals were clinical with the ball upfront. New ball specialist Trent Boult was the chief architect of demolition. Yuzvendra Chahal's middle-over brilliance reduced MI to a paltry total of 125. The Royals faced a bit of jitter in the run-chase, losing Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler inside the first seven overs but Riyan Parag showed maturity. Fresh off his blistering 45-ball 84-run knock, Parag showed his calm to power the visitors to a six-wicket win. He made 54 from 39 balls this time.

The result saw the two teams go on the two opposite spectrums of the points table - Royals on top with three out of three wins and MI remain on bottom with three out of three losses.
