    10.5 Archer breaks this rollicking opening stand. He hits a hard length outside off and the splice of Rohit. He is rushed into a pull and finds Buttler at long-on. Banged in outside off at 146ks, Rohit can only drag a catch to Buttler in the outfield. Pollard is padded up. Is he the next man in? 96/1
    18.3 Buttler tears in from long-off and pulls off a screaming catch. He has hushed the Saturday crowd at the Wankhede. de Kock backs away again, Archer chases him with a short, slower offcutter. Archer asks de Kock to manufacture all the pace. He can't clear long-off. Buttler runs in, dives forward, and snaffles it like a boss 163/4

    13.1 That's a bail-trimmer. Kulkarni marks his return with a wicket. Suryakumar backs away and manufactures swinging room to blitz the ball through the covers. But, Dhawal hits the top of off and the off bail gets tipped off 117/2
    16.2 Archer gets Pollard. Archer runs in hard, hits the deck harder, Gopal runs back from midwicket, gets into a side-on position in the outfield and takes this skier in the end. Pollard never really got going and Archer's pace is just too quick for him. 142.6ks, Pollard is late onto the pull. He can only skew it in the air, and Gopal does the rest. Gone for 6 off 12 balls 136/3

    19.2 full-toss outside off, and Unadkat gets away with it. Kishan aims to clear long-off, but picks out Buttler there. Slices it in the air and Buttler helps himself to a simpler catch 175/5

    6.2 caught at deep midwicket! Rahane didn't want Krunal to settle. He went for the slog sweep first up, a touch of bounce caused a slight miscue and it falls 10m short of the rope, Yadav takes the catch easily 60/1
    13.2 Buttler goes for his seventh successive boundary, this time he holes out to long-off. Tossed outside off and spins away further, Buttler lines up for the loft over long-off. He can only slice it away to Suryakumar in the outfield. Blistering innings, nonetheless. And he make it look as easy as eating a sandwich 147/2
    16.5 full and straight at 142.1ks, Samson shuffles a fair away across off, plays across the line, and wears it on the front pad in line with middle and leg. Samson has been given out lbw, he chats to Smith and calls for a review. The tracker returns umpire's call on leg stump and Samson has to go 170/3
    18.1 Has Smith nicked off? The finger goes up and Smith walks off. Bumrah ventures wide of the crease, angles a length ball into Smith and then gets it to straighten away. Smith has a flat-footed waft and feathers it behind to Kishan 174/6
    17.1 tossed outside off, Tripathi holes out to deep midwicket. He drags a slog-sweep against the turn and across the line. Caught Hardik Pandya bowled Krunal Pandya. What're you doing, Rajasthan Royals? 171/4
    17.6 Oh dear, the Royals continue to tumble. Drifts in on middle, full and straight. Livingstone drops down to one knee. He goes for an almighty slog-sweep like Tripathi had done earlier this over. He can't touch it. And Krunal rattles the stumps. Six runs and three wickets off the last two overs 174/5
