Krishnappa Gowtham has played one of the most important and best knocks of his career. A late cameo to ensure Rajasthan Royals (RR) get back to winning ways. Mumbai Indians (MI) bowled well for most parts of the game but gave it away it the last few overs. This was Mumbai’s fourth last-over loss in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 season. Before Gowtham, it was Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson Stokes, who came together and tried getting their side closer adding 72 runs for the fifth wicket.

Mumbai’s innings was all about Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. The pair added 129 runs for third wicket before Mumbai suffered a dramatic collapse.
