Cameron Green's terrific run with the bat in the ongoing Indian Premier League just doesn't seem to come to an end. The all-rounder put up an excellent exhibition of shots in the ongoing game against Rajasthan Royals and scored a quickfire 44 to help the Mumbai Indians remain in the run chase as the home side is pursuing a total of 213 runs.
Green came into bat after skipper Rohit Sharma perished at an individual score of 3 off 5 balls. Green hit the ground running and scored boundaries with ease. He struck a 62-run stand with Ishan Kishan and stabilised Mumbai after a jittery start.
Green scored 44 runs off just 26 balls, including four fours and two sixes. His knock came at a superb strike rate of 169.23 and helped Mumbai's cause. Green has already struck two half-centuries in the ongoing edition and was unlucky to miss his third of the season by a whisker.
Green fell prey to Ravichandran Ashwin as the former tried to launch a flick over the cow corner region but he failed to get the timing right and ended up hitting it to Trent Boult who was patrolling in that region.
Yashasvi Jaiswal shines with maiden IPL ton in 1000th game
Earlier in the match, it was Rajasthan's opener Yashasvi Jaiswal who dazzled brightly as he struck his maiden IPL hundred and finished with 124 runs off just 62 balls, including 16 fours and eight sixes. While wickets kept tumbling from the other end, Jaiswal held one end together and scored at a praiseworthy strike rate of 200.
His power-packed knock helped Royals put up 212 on the board. Jaiswal's magnificent ton has helped him become the third centurion of the ongoing edition of the cash-rich league. Harry Brook from Sunrisers Hyderabad and Venkatesh Iyer from Kolkata Knight Riders have already hit centuries in the 16th edition. Jaiswal was ultimately dismissed by pacer Arshad Khan.
