Mumbai Indians cruised to their 4th win of the IPL 2020 by thumping the Rajasthan Royals to a huge 57-run margin on Tuesday. Mumbai, electing to bat first yet again, posted 193/4 in their 20 overs despite slowing down in the middle overs. Suryakumar Yadav’s unbeaten 47-ball 79 ensured the start MI got did not go in vain. The Mumbai’s pace attack turned out to be too harsh over the Royals by bundling them to 136 with nine pace wickets. Jos Buttler’s 44-ball 70 did create a scare in the MI but lack of support saw a walk in the park for the home side.

Here are all the statistical highlights from Mumbai Indians’ third consecutive win of IPL 2020:

MI end their RR jinx in style:

Bumrah’s maiden 4-fer:

4/20 – Bumrah’s figures of 4/20 are also the 2nd best by a pacer in the IPL against the Rajasthan Royals. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 4/14 during the 2014 edition match held in Ahmedabad.
