Jos Buttler delivers again, keeps Rajasthan Royals in the hunt

In the IPL 2018 points table, Mumbai Indians is at the fifth place with 10 points and the team Rajasthan Royals is at the sixth place with 10 points. The Royals won the match with seven wickets to spare with the help of Jos Buttler's gracious 94 off 53. But Mumbai Indians had lost four wickets and had two of their most unsafe hitters, the Pandya brothers, at the crease, with Ben Cutting set to come in next. Just like Archer's variations in speed, Royals will hope he can take them from one extreme to another in the league.

Even though Archer possesses a quick and mean yorker, he did not use it against Mumbai on Sunday, like he had against Chennai Super Kings two nights ago. Ajinkya Rahane knows he will have to provide his team with a solid start in the company of Jos Buttler, who is coming off a good innings.

Mumbai Indians, thanks to their recent good form, are the overwhelming favourites to take this contest. Sensing the desperation of the Mumbai batsmen, Rahane turned to Archer and the pacer struck gold, taking two wickets in as many balls to get his side right back in the game. They needed to win all of their remaining games to qualify for the playoffs round.

Both these sides started poorly in the tournament, losing several matches due to below-par performance of their star players, which have put them in a situation where each and every game has become a virtual knockout.

For Rajasthan Royals, the form of opener Buttler has been the biggest positive.

Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ben Cutting, Krunal Pandya, Jean-Paul Duminy, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah.

In a virtual quarter final, MI and CSK locked horns at the iconic Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. He then tried to chip Dhawal Kulkarni over the infield, but Gowtham could not get his hands under the ball diving forward from mid-on.
