Buttler scripts yet another win for Rajasthan with an unbeaten 94 - his fifth fifty-plus score this season. A big win as well with two overs to spare. Although, still not curtains for Mumbai Indians.

Rajasthan Royals just cruised to the win here. Butter has been magnificent and instrumental in resurrecting Royals' campaign. 95 in the previous game, 94 in this and remained undefeated in both taking his side over the line against CSK then and MI now.

Credit to the Rajasthan bowlers as well, who did splendidly to pull back things in their favour in the second half of the innings, restricting MI to below par 169.

With both teams tied on 10 points, and RR lagging behind on the NRR, this match was crucial, bearing the potential to be a sustainer in the competition. And Rajasthan takes the honours, sending CSK into the playoffs. Rahane won a good toss, put Mumbai in, strangled them after a good opening stand, and chased it with dew for aid.

Mumbai posted a total of 168/6 against Rajasthan, as Evin Lewis did well to score a half-century, making 60 runs from 42 balls. Captain Rohit Sharma. Unfortunately, scored a duck. Suryakumar Yadav scored 38 from 31 balls. Hardik Pandya scored 36 from 21 balls. Suryakumar Yadav made 38 from 31. Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes took 2 wickets each for Rajasthan. 

MI 168/6 (20.0 Ovs)
RR 171/3 (18.0 Ovs)
