Rajasthan and Mumbai locked horns in the 9th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. It was a high-scoring thriller between the two Western Indian franchises.

The skipper of Mumbai, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to field first. The start for Rajasthan was not a great one as they lost Jaiswal and Padikkal within the Powerplay. The score at the end of the 6th over was 48 for the loss of two wickets. The skipper of the team Sanju Samson joined Buttler at the crease and the duo just took off. While Buttler continued with his aggressive batting Samson (30 off 21) perfectly played the role of a grafter alongside. After Samson was dismissed Hetmyer arrived at the pitch and played a brilliant little cameo (35 off 14). Buttler at the opposite end looked unstoppable and scored the second century of his ITL career. He was dismissed by Bumrah in the 19th over for 100 off 68 deliveries. Rajasthan finished their innings with a score of 193 runs from their 20 overs. Jasprit Bumrah found his form back with the bowl taking 3 wickets for 17 runs from his 4 overs.

Mumbai lost their skipper Rohit Sharma in just the second over of their chase. Anmolpreet Singh soon followed his captain and the team was 40 for 2 in just the 4th over. Ishan Kishan continued to justify his price tag at the mega auction of Indian t20 League and scored one more half-century (54 off 43 deliveries). But it was the young Tilak Verma who stole the show with a brilliant knock (61 off 32), before being dismissed by the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin. After his dismissal Mumbai lost the plot and lost two more wickets adding just one more run to the total.  From here it all depended on Kieron Pollard to take them home, but he failed his team today. He did not find the correct timing through out his innings and ended up scoring 22 off 24 deliveries being dismissed of the last ball of the innings. Mumbai’s chase stopped at 170 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in 20 overs. It was the second defeat for Mumbai in as many games.
