MI and Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to move a step closer to play-off berth with a win

Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals are all set to fight each other at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Sunday to secure a berth in play-offs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 cricket championship.

His knock was studded with 9 fours and 5 sixes.

Chasing 168, RR got off to a worrying start, losing D'Arcy Short in the very first over. His 91-run partnership with skipper Ajinkya Rahane for the second wicket provided the much needed stability after which he played shots at will and finished the match with a six. The duo then took Royals over 100-run mark in the 13th over.

Pandya picked up the pace with a plethora of late boundaries, including a hat-trick of sixes in one Jaydev Unadkat over, but his late onslaught was overshadowed by Buttler's brilliance in Rajasthan's reply.

"0 && comm [ts].geo.indexOf ($root.$GEO.country) == -1" Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ben Cutting, Krunal Pandya, Jean-Paul Duminy, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Mustafizur Rahman, Rahul Chahar, Saurabh Tiwary, Pradeep Sangwan, Tajinder Singh, Sharad Lumba, Siddhesh Lad, Aditya Tare, Akila Dananjaya, Anukul Roy, Mohsin Khan, MD Nidheesh, Adam Milne.

Lewis batted smartly as he opened his arms only after building his innings steadily after being dropped at individual score of five. The duo added 87 runs for the first wicket in 10.4 overs. They look to be too dependent on Jofra Archer in the bowling department as well even though Ish Sodhi's inclusion has helped. They need to continue the good work against a strong batting unit of Mumbai. The English cricketer scored his fifth consecutive fifty in the tournament to seal the game for his side in the must win encounter against the defending champions. The T20 will be played at Mumbai.

Archer directed two short balls on the left side of the MI's top two batsmen - Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma - and had them trapped at long leg, caught remarkably well by Jaydev Unadkat. Following that Dhawal Kulkarni accounted for Lewis (60) and Stokes cleaned up Kishan (12) as MI lost four wickets in just four overs.
