IPL 2020: MI win toss, elect to bat vs RR

Ben Stokes

The win not only kept the Royals in the race for the playoffs - they are now sixth on the points table with ten points from 12 games - but also brought the curtain down on the Chennai Super Kings' campaign.

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma who has been struggling with a hamstring injury - suffered in the game against Kings XI Punjab in Dubai last Sunday - is a doubtful starter for the game against Rajasthan Royals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Sunday.

Pandya smashed 60 not out from only 21 balls, including seven sixes, to lift Mumbai to their challenging total, only for Stokes to make light of the chase.

Runs weren't so plentiful in the day's other game.

Sam Curran managed to contribute a very valuable half-century towards the latter stages of his team's innings but it was only enough to see CSK get to 114-9 in their 2o overs with Boult finishing with fantastic figures of 4-18 in his spell, the best of this year's IPL. It was a Stokes storm in Abu Dhabi as he played a blistering innings of 107 not out in just 60 balls including 14 fours and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 178.33.

Both companies have contracts to supply vaccines to the USA and other governments if they are cleared by regulators. Pauses due to adverse events are quite common in big trials, he said.

"What you saw in the second innings wasn't a true reflection of how hard the pitch was", Kohli said in defence of his team's total.

New Zealand left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner (1-23), playing his first game this season, and Imran Tahir (0-30) didn't allow Kohli and AB de Villiers (39) to break loose in the middle-overs and the two stroke-makers consumed 68 balls in raising an 82-run partnership.

Soon Faf du Plessis fell for one, leaving the team at three runs for the loss of four wickets.

Opening the batting, he could have been caught at deep mid-wicket on 26, only for a diving Hardik Pandya to drop the chance.

While the partnership was broken on the first ball of the 19th over, Pandya went on to score a stroke-filled fifty, his first of the season, after slamming three sixes and 2 fours in the final over to take MI to 195/5. "Everything went to plan, and the execution was there". We've got three games, for us it's about winning them all.
