IPL3. Day 31 Match 45. Mumbai Indians Vs Rajasthan Royals.

Mumbai Indians 174 for 5 beat Rajasthan Royals 137 for 8 by 37 runs at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur.

Playing at their home turf, Rajasthan Royals crumbled to a 37 runs loss to Mumbai Indians.It was the master again for Mumbai Indians. Leading from the front, Sachin made an unbeaten 89 of 59 deliveries, well supported by Duminy 31 of 32 and Pollard 25 of 13. When Tiwary's wicket fell, Mumbai Indians were tottering at 3 for 30 of 3.5. Sachin stood solidly at one end, and was well supported by Duminy and Pollard. Watson with 3 for 37, Dole with 1 for 34 and Trivedi with 1 for 35 were amongst the wickets.

A score of 171 was always a winning one, with Zaheer, Malinga and Harbhajan to bowl. That's what exactly happened. Zaheer with, Malinga and Harbhajan with, always kept the Royals in check. Foolish run outs added to Royals woe. If your side looses 3,4 and 5 for run outs for nothing, recovery is almost impossible. Royals were floored for their lowest score of 137 for 8, at SMS Jaipur and lost the match by 37 runs.
