Buttler equals Sehwag's record with 5th straight IPL fifty

Mumbai at 34/0 after 4 overs 8:14pm: Stuart Binny misses Erin Lewis' catch; MI at 25/0 after 3 overs To what looked like one of the tallest shot was missed by RR's Stuart Binny.

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. Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians have no choice but to bat in the first innings of the game.

Although Yadav had started things on an attacking note, it was Lewis who took up the charge after powerplay, to up the ante.

It's another do-or-die battle for hosts Mumbai as well their opponents Rajasthan when they clash tonight at the Wankhede Stadium in a crucial T20 2018 contest.

If Yadav, Rohit, Lewis, Ishan and J P Duminy go all guns blazing it would be hard to stop them. Runs are also expected from Ishan Kishan and all-rounders Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal.

After flying starts, Mumbai often lose their way in the middle and their batters will have to make amends on this aspect if they want to have a shot at a play-offs berth. Mumbai had suffered five losses in their first six games in 2015 and then from there went on to clinch the title. He will also expect to repeat the same performance this time too.

The match in a tweet: Jos Buttler blasts fifth 50 in a row to equal Virender Sehwag's record and get Rajasthan one step closer to the final four! Chennai Super Kings also benefitted from the result as they sealed their spot in the play-offs with Mumbai's defeat.

And at the Wankhede, team winning toss could be eager to chase as the pitch tends to get better through the game.

The Rajasthan Royals have managed to keep their dreams alive in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. Skipper Ajinkya Rahane and in-form Buttler steadily revived the run chase and took the score to 51/1 after the six powerplay overs. However, Mumbai Indian have a sight edge on paper. Apart from Jos Buttler, hardly anyone else has risen to the occasion and batsmen like Rahane and Sanju Samson need return to run scoring ways.
