Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

7.55pm And that is that from Jaipur. The action shifts to Delhi now, where the Capitals have chosen to bowl against Kings XI Punjab. Catch all the action here. Goodbye!

Steven Smith is the Player of the match, and the Rajasthan Royals captain, so yay, only one interview to transcribe. “Haven’t contributed as much as I’d like through this tournament, it was nice to get off to a good start and take the boys home,” he says. “We can’t worry about other results, it’s about us and our processes. For us, it’s a final, every game. We did well to pull it back to 160 and executed our skills well. It’s never good when your drop catches, but those things happen, and you’ve got to move on, and we did that. Look at Jofra, the way he bowled and came back. [Riyan Parag] was very impressive. I’ve been watching him in the nets, and he’s got superb skills with the ball, and with the bat he’s got a cool head, and a lot of power. I wish I had that kind of power as a 17-year-old. He’s just got to keep playing with freedom. Very bright future for the young guy.”

Kanav: “MoM- Surya ” — Harsh, but his 34 off 33 definitely does look like the wrong kind of impactful innings.

Nani: “Mumbai have to use Ben cutting. But they are not using resources like Cutting and Pollard.”

Harry Dawe: “To me, the strongest RR top order at the moment minus Buttler would be Tripathi, Livingstone, Samson with Smith as the safe batsman at 4, Livingstone and Tripathi given license to try and go at 10s and with Parag and Turner/Stokes to finish the innings”

Yash Narain: “One has to give credit to Smith for his captaincy today. Used the likes of Binny and Prayag in the middle overs to save three overs of Archer for the death. Mumbai have gotten away in the recent past with suryakumar’s middle overs sloth-paced run making thanks to the final overs blitzkreig provided by Hardik and Pollard but Archer and Smith were less forgiving today ”

7.39pm New captain, a heavily rejigged team, and Rajasthan Royals have found a way to win a match. It’s only their third win of the season, but they’ve done the double over Mumbai. An interesting match on a slow pitch, and in the end Mumbai probably were a handful of runs short of a properly challenging total. Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal played a big part in keeping Mumbai down, and the new captain, Steven Smith, saw them through in one of those middling chases, with a vital injection of momentum from young Riyan Parag.

19.1 4 Malinga to Binny full-toss angling down leg. It’s the attempted yorker, it’s dipping late, and Binny doesn’t really know much about it, but he plays a blind flick at it, and gets a little tickle on it – or not – onto his pad, and the ball runs away to the fine leg boundary to bring up victory FOUR

Four to win. Can Malinga somehow pull this off for Mumbai?

End of Over No.19 Rajasthan Royals 158/5 Last Over (5 runs)

18.6 1 Bumrah to Binny back of a length outside off, looks to slap it through the covers, the angle makes him hit it towards mid-off off the inside half of the bat. Pollard’s too deep again to prevent the single 1 run

Ahir: “One more innings and Turner might be finding himself in the Olympics” — Also known as Ajit Agarkar-land

18.5 1 Bumrah to Smith length ball angling in towards off stump, Smith pushes gently to mid-off, who’s right on the edge of the circle 1 run
18.4 1 Bumrah to Binny length ball angling in towards middle stump. Stays leg side of the ball and pushes to the left of short cover 1 run
18.3 1 Bumrah to Smith back of a length, angling into off stump. Smith pushes to the right of backward point and sets off for a quick single. Not too far from the fielder, Pollard, and he throws with his right arm… Direct hit at the non-striker’s end, but Smith is home, just about 1 run

RAJ: “Turner is officially Audi’s ambassador..”

18.2 1 Bumrah to Binny shortish, angling into the front hip, tucked away into the square leg region 1 run

Here’s Stuart Binny.

18.1 W Bumrah to Turner make that 0, 0, 0, 0. Bumrah’s deadly inward angle and skiddiness does in another batsman. Turner’s front leg moves half-forward and across the stumps, and he ends up playing around his front pad looking to work it into the leg side. The angle beats his inside edge, and it’s the plumblest of lbw decisions thereafter OUT
AJ Turner lbw b Bumrah 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Ashton Turner is the new batsman. He’s made 0, 0 and 0 in his last three T20 innings. He’s up against Bumrah now.

Gladwyn: “One of the commentators said that if Parag gets to a half century today, he’d be the youngest in IPL history. Someone got jinxed bad.”

End of Over No.18 Rajasthan Royals 153/4 Last Over (8 runs)

17.6 2 HH Pandya to Smith full outside off, driven to the right of sweeper cover 2 runs
17.5 4 HH Pandya to Smith that’s a pressure-relieving boundary. Short, just a bit of width, and Smith leans back and cracks a square-cut past the left hand of the diving backward point fielder FOUR

15 off 14 now.

17.4 1 HH Pandya to Smith length ball angling into off stump, clipped away to the left of deep midwicket, and is that a run-out at the bowler’s end? They risk a second run against Ben Cutting’s rocket arm, and even though it isn’t a direct hit, the throw is so flat and accurate, straight into Pandya’s hands near the stumps, that Parag is at least six inches short 1 run, OUT
R Parag run out 43 (44m 29b 5×4 1×6) SR: 148.27
17.3 . HH Pandya to Smith nicely bowled. Saw Smith trying to make himself room and bowls a wide slower ball, quite full. Reaches out to flat-bat it, but can’t put any power on it. Hits it straight to short cover no run
17.2 . HH Pandya to Smith slower offcutter outside off, quite short. Skids through a little low and sneaks under the attempted pull no run
17.1 1 HH Pandya to Parag slower length ball angling into the stumps from wide of the crease, whipped away to deep midwicket 1 run

Seventeen off 18 now. Will it be Malinga to bowl out his final over? Has to be, you’d think? Nope. Hardik Pandya.

End of Over No.17 Rajasthan Royals 145/3 Last Over (8 runs)

16.6 . Bumrah to Smith shortish close to off stump, no real room to free his arms for the pull, hits it to square leg without a great deal of power no run
16.5 2 Bumrah to Smith full outside off, angling in from wide of the crease. Smith leans forward, looking for the cover drive. Plays a little early and the angle causes the ball to run away through midwicket off the inside half of the bat. That shot brings up his fifty 2 runs
16.4 . Bumrah to Smith looks for the off-stump yorker, ends up bowling a low full-toss. Smith jabs it to short cover with a straight bat no run
16.3 1 Bumrah to Parag bouncer, rising head-high and angling in from wide of the crease. Steps across to hook, and he’s beaten for pace. Off the badge of the helmet, and it pops up and drops down into the long leg region 1 run
16.2 1 Bumrah to Smith full, on the pads, clipped to long leg 1 run
16.1 4 Bumrah to Smith back of a length close to off stump, and that’s sensational timing from Smith. Stays a little leg-side of the ball, and meets it with an open face and sends it racing away to the right of third man. Not too much distance for the fielder to cover, but it just blazed past him FOUR

25 off 24 now. Mumbai have two overs left from Bumrah – I’m guessing 17 and 19. Can he put the squeeze on and transfer some of the pressure onto the Royals? Here he is.

Arun Prakash: “Got to Just credit Rahul Dravid here. All his U-19 guns are blazing away in IPL/ International Cricket.” — Let’s also credit all the junior coaches/selectors who helped them up the ladder before they even reached the Under-19 stage.

Sanat Prabhu: “At 12.2, bumrah appealed for LBW and umpire signalled the batsman hit it. What if Mumbai had a review left and Bumrah would have thought of reviewing it? Umpire might have saved Mumbai from wasting the review in that case” — Looks like I didn’t spot the signal.

End of Over No.16 Rajasthan Royals 137/3 Last Over (9 runs)

15.6 2 Malinga to Parag bouncer in the fourth-stump channel, and Parag brings that bottom hand into play again, plays a tennis-style swat into the gap to the left of deep midwicket 2 runs
15.5 4 Malinga to Parag misses the yorker length and ends up bowling a half-volley outside off. Parag clatters it away with a bottom-handed drive over extra-cover FOUR
15.4 . Malinga to Parag that’s a Malinga special. A dipping yorker that swerves away late in its trajectory. Parag looks to open his bat face and squeeze it past point, but the late swing beats his edge no run

Varun Gupta: “Where had RR hidden Binny and Parag all these days. They have been doing blunders with their final XI this entire season. Don’t be surprised if Turner wins them a few games down the line!”

15.3 1 Malinga to Smith shortish outside off, uses his wrists to play a bottom-handed pull-whip to deep midwicket 1 run
15.2 1 Malinga to Parag length ball wide of off stump, Parag plays a wristy drive out to deep cover point 1 run
15.1 1 Malinga to Smith back of a length, angling in towards off stump, gets on the back foot to play a straight-bat push into the midwicket region 1 run

Malinga comes on now.

Ramanan: “I had randomly picked Ryan Parag as captain in my fantasy league!!”

End of Over No.15 Rajasthan Royals 128/3 Last Over (10 runs)

14.6 1 Chahar to Smith back of a length on off stump, worked away to deep midwicket 1 run
14.5 1 Chahar to Parag short and wide, slapped to sweeper cover 1 run
14.4 1 Chahar to Smith flat length ball on off stump, gets deep in his crease and pushes with a straight bat into the vacant short midwicket region. Chahar does well to chase it down in his follow-through, and makes Smith stretch to complete the quick single 1 run
14.3 1 Chahar to Parag length ball on leg stump, gets on the front foot to clip it into the square leg region 1 run
14.2 6 Chahar to Parag bam! Just marginally short, and he rocks back and hammers it high over wide long-on SIX
