Highlights from yesterday’s IPL, Match 14. Mumbai is defended by Rajasthan.

Who won the IPL match yesterday? On April 1, the Mumbai Indians (MI) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) faced off at home. Hardik Pandya, the captain of MI, had a rough start to the day. When he arrived for the toss at Wankhede Stadium, he was jeered.

Rajasthan Won the Toss

When Sanjay Manjrekar, who was overseeing the toss, called for a round of applause, Pandya continued to be jeered. Even yet, Pandya had a sardonic look on his face when Manjrekar ordered the assembly to “behave.” Sanju Samson, the captain of RR, chose to bowl first after winning the toss.

Mumbai’s difficult beginning persisted as Rohit Sharma went hunting for a golden duck. Trent Boult removed Naman Dhir from the game with the very next ball, giving MI yet another golden duck, after taking out Rohit. And Dewald Brevis was hunting for a golden duck. Ishan Kishan, meanwhile, smashed a rapid 14 off 12 balls while hitting two fours and a six.
Tilak Varma and captain Hardik Pandya’s collaboration was what restored some sanity to Mumbai. Thanks to Pandya’s 34 from 21 balls and six fours, they amassed 56 runs. With two sixes, Varma scored 32 off 29 balls.

The only batter to score in double digits at that point was Tim David (17 off 24 balls). Jasprit Bumrah (8), Gerald Coetzee (4), and Akash Madhwal (4) did not use their bat to produce any noteworthy effects. In the IPL encounter, Mumbai gave Rajasthan a target of 126 runs in 20 overs.

Not even RR hitters could muster a big score. Jos Buttler (13 off 16 balls), Sanju Samson (12 off 10 balls), and Yashasvi Jaiswal (10 off 6 balls) were all removed quickly. Rajasthan had a 48/3 score. Next, Riyan Parag appeared.
In addition to leading Rajasthan to victory, Riyan’s 54 off 39 balls, which included five fours and three sixes, also made him the tournament’s best scorer. He was the one to don the Orange Cap ahead of Virat Kohli. The RR innings was stabilized by his 40-run partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin. Akash Madhwal was Rajasthan’s best bowler, taking three wickets in his four overs, while conceding 20 runs.
