Rajasthan Royals continued their domination over the Mumbai Indians as they registered a 5-wicket win; their 2nd win of the season against MI. Quinton de Kock continued his good form in the tournament as he flourished with a 47-ball 65. However, unlike in the previous matches, MI missed the late flourish and ended up with only 161/5 on the board. Sanju Samson’s 19-ball 35 at the top was followed by an unbeaten 48-ball 59 from skipper Steve Smith along with young Riyan Parag who scored 43 from 29.
Here are all the major stats and numbers from Rajasthan’s yet another win over the Mumbai Indians:
The Royal domination over MI:
4 – Rajasthan Royals won all the four matches they played against the Mumbai Indians since their readmission to the IPL in 2018. They are only the 2nd team to defeat MI in four consecutive matches in the IPL. The Chennai Super Kings also defeated MI in four consecutive IPL game between 2014 and 2015.
6 – Number of times Rajasthan defeated Mumbai at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur; the most number of wins for them against any team in Twenty20 format at this venue. RR defeated MI on five out of seven instances in the IPL and once in their only meeting at the CLT20.
Smith continues to shine against MI:
4 – Steve Smith has scored as many as four half-centuries in 13 innings against the Mumbai Indians in the Twenty20 format. All those four fifties against MI came in the IPL across 11 innings. Smith hasn’t scored more than two fifties against any other opponent in the T20 format.
IPL captain with the best record:
68 – Steve Smith replaced Ajinkya Rahane as the captain of the Rajasthan Royals ahead of this game. He now has won 17 out of the 25 matches as captain in the IPL. His win percentage of 68 in the league is the highest for any captain who has led in five or more games.
4 in 4 for Turner:
2 – Ashton Turner has bagged ducks in each of his previous four Twenty20 games including two golden ducks in the two IPL matches. He thus became only the 11th player and the 2nd from Australia to register four consecutive ducks in the Twenty20 format.
Big stands in defeats for MI:
97 – The partnership of 97 runs between Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav is the highest stand for any wicket for the Mumbai Indians in 2019 IPL. Their previous highest was 96 for the opening wicket between De Kock and Rohit Sharma which was also against the Rajasthan Royals.
These are the only two partnerships in excess of 75 for the Mumbai in this season but unfortunately, both these big partnerships came in the losing cause.
