They were too hot to handle on a wicket which wasn't the best to bat on early on. Their pacers shared the ruins and accounted for the 9 of the 10 wickets that fell for RR. Once RR were skittled out for 90, MI did the second part with relative ease as well. Kishan took the onus after Rohit started off on an aggressive note. But MI had the NRR on their radar and have done well to stay in touch with the fourth placed KKR. RR have shot themselves on their own foot and have been pushed behind at the business end of the tourney. The action and the narrative in both innings had different momentum to it. Our team of KAD, Abhinand Raghavendran, MS Ramakrishnan, Akshay Maanay and Siva had immense pleasure in bringing every nitty gritty of the action on your platter. Tadaa! Nathan Coulter-Nile, Man of the Match : Just tried to keep it simple. Was a tough wicket to bat on. Just tried to change the pace a little. It was sticking a little. I am not fussed when I am bowled. There are world class bowlers in our side and hope they can pick a few more and I will have my job easier. Rohit Sharma: We had to come here and do what we had to do. The two points were very crucial for us. Once we had them bowled out for 90, we had a chance to finish it early. It is important to seize the game. We had to come out and bat freely. We had a chance to get the run rate in order. Was a perfect game for us. He (Kishan) is playing after a couple of games. I was there to take the risks. We know his ability. We wanted him to spend some time and that is exactly what he did. You got to ask Jimmy (James Pamment - Mumbai's fielding coach) if he wants to do another one (pep talk). He loves talking to us, he's a great character to have in the squad. Solid guy, keeps the atmosphere buzzing all the time in the squad group and that is something that is necessary. We were not playing well in terms of where we would have liked to, so you need those kind of talks from someone like him. It was important for us to just get going. That actually got all the guys going. When you're under the radar, sometimes it's important that you come out and do the job nice and quiet. We've been on and off this season. We've been doing well, we've been preparing well, it's just that collectively we were not coming together but today was a good example. All the bowlers came together, used the conditions really well and then the batters finished it off. I feel in this tournament, any team is capable of beating anyone. KKR is playing before us and we will know exactly what to do. Ishan Kishan : It's nice to be back opening and getting runs for the team and helping win by a big margin. Feeling really good, was much needed for our team to get momentum. It was good to field first, got a good idea of the surface. Our plan was to play as straight as possible. Just play in the V was the plan and the batsmen executed really well. I feel ups and downs are a big part of any sportsman. I was also not in good shape. Most of the batters were not getting runs like previous seasons. We had great support staff. Our captain... In fact I had a chat with Virat bhai, Hardik bhai.. everyone was there to support me. I had a chat with KP (Pollard) who said you just need to keep things simple, bat the way you used to do, just watch the videos of what you did in the last season. I watched a few videos of my batting and that gave me a bit of confidence. There is talk of us wanting KKR to lose the next game and us winning our next game (smiles), but that is way ahead now. We just have to prepare for our next game. Need to play with the same energy today. Looking forward to doing this again in the next game. Sanju Samson | Rajasthan Royals captain: It was a bit challenging wicket to bat on, it was tougher in the first innings. Coming from Abu Dhabi, playing in Sharjah was a massive difference. Can't blame the batsmen a lot, but it was tough to bat in the first innings. Abu Dhabi had one of the best batting wickets, switching to Sharjah was tough. Mindset - it's a bit cloudy right now, we need to take some time off and then think about the next game. We'd definitely like to play a better game of cricket in the next game. We knew that they'll be coming strong, in the powerplay they wanted to increase the run-rate. The wicket was a bit better than the first innings but they batted really well. Most balls remaining after a successful run-chase in IPL 2021: 70 MI vs RR, Sharjah 60 KKR vs RCB, Abu Dhabi 29 KKR vs MI, Abu Dhabi 26 CSK vs PBKS, Mumbai 20:52 Local Time, 16:52 GMT, 22:22 IST: It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves. MI so believe in this. It wasn't a typical Shakespearean drama though as all of it happened so very quickly. Who writes the script for them? They treat the IPL like a marathon and pip others mostly at the last lap. That last bend of the last lap has begun. And MI are picking up their pace. Their NRR has had a facelift. A cosmetic one delivered by their bowlers and Kishan. They added Neesham at the expense of QDK for this game. One might have had a smirk at the choice made. But Neesham returned with figures of 4-0-12-3. NCN was more than an able ally as he accounted for four wickets and Bumrah chipped in with a couple as well. Kishan was brought back and he was on fire. A 25-ball 50 ensured the chase was just as how they imagined at the half way mark. MI go up to fifth in the points table. RR had their destiny in their own hands but not anymore. Their NRR and chances have had a traumatic experience today. Hang around for the presentations as Rohit 'Midas' Sharma will be proud of the changes made and he will throw more light on it. 8.2 Mustafizur to Ishan Kishan, SIX , MI win! Fifty for Ishan Kishan as well. Did you bat an eyelid? If you have, then you must have missed this chase. They certainly are in too much of a hurry to catch the next flight.

MI are chuffed to bits 7.4 Chetan Sakariya to Ishan Kishan, no ball , doesn't really lean into that and has been played away to the man at cover. Uh oh, it is a no-ball. MI and Ishan Kishan are grateful 7.3 Chetan Sakariya to Ishan Kishan, FOUR , angling on to the pads and has been heaved away off the pads for a four.

That was a length delivery on the pads and Hardik Pandya whiplashed it. It went really high but didn't have the distance on it. Was a close call as far as the save was concerned and the fielder had done enough to save the run Chetan Sakariya [2.0-1-12-1] is back into the attack Load More Commentary
