In a virtual quarter final, MI and CSK locked horns at the iconic Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. However, Butter kept the asking rate under control with his tremendous hitting. However, another good (61-run) partnership between Sanju Samson (26) and Buttler, sealed things for Rajasthan. Lewis went on to score a half-century and Hardik Pandya also pinched in with a quickfire 36 runs off 21 balls, as the Mumbai side finished its innings at 168/6 in its allotted quota of 20 overs.
Rajasthan Royals are also on same 10 points from 11 matches and both sides know they would be playing a do-or-die match tomorrow. Add to it the firepower of Ben Cutting and Krunal and Hardik Pandya, their batting can be most devastating.
It was hard to time the ball on the wicket and it required vast physical strength to clear the boundary ropes.
As far as bowling is concerned Jofra Archer and K Gowtham have been good for the Rajasthan Royals and tonight at the Wankhede, they would the bowlers to watch out for. He conceded only 16 runs in his four overs and also picked up two important wickets.
He used the bounce available in the pitch, hit the deck hard and bowled straight into the batsmen, hardly giving any room to open their arms.

Suryakumar, who was also dropped on nine by Gowtham, though had adjusted to the bounce and negotiated both spinners and pacers nicely, playing confident drives. However, Mumbai Indian have a sight edge on paper.
Visiting captain Ajinkya Rahane signified the importance of starting well during the power play and watching his side commit silly mistakes, particularly, at this stage, would only rub more salt in his wounds. Yadav will hold the key to providing MI with a quick-fire start in order to set a big total, or if they're faced with chasing one. The home openers batted smartly to work the ball around and kept the scoreboard moving.
Lewis broke the shackles by lofting Gopal for consecutive sixes in the ninth over. Rahane looking to end the partnership tossed the ball to Archer who delivered a double whammy, scalping Yadav (38) and then sending back Rohit Sharma for a golden duck in consecutive deliveries.
Despite a steady opening partnership of 87 runs off 64 balls between openers Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav, the blue brigade could not capitalise much on it, as RR bowlers keep getting the wickets on regular intervals.
