Rajasthan Royals have lost the wicket of Shane Watson of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game against Mumbai Indians. In 5.3 overs, Rajasthan are 34 for one. Sanju Samson is in the middle.

 

Jasprit Bumrah came on to bowl the fourth over and was pitching it in the right channels. He hit the yorker length a few times and also got the ball to move in a touch. But, the moment he erred, Samson smashed him for four through the cover region. Pragyan Ojha came on to bowl in the fifth over. After a few dot balls, Samson swept one behind square for a six.

 

Harbhajan Singh came on to bowl in the sixth over and off the first over, he strayed down the leg-side. Watson swept it with authority behind square for a four. Watson then danced down the ground and smashed it to long on. Kieron Pollard ran across and took a good catch diving forward.

 

Earlier, Mumbai won the toss and chose to bowl first in a crucial encounter. With the equations in place, they needed to bat second as that would make their task relatively easier. Mumbai brought back Corey Anderson and dropped Marchant de Lange. Rajasthan also made a few changes to their side.
