Earlier in the day, it was a good toss to lose for Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday as they piled up 187/5 against Rajasthan Royals (RR) after being put into bat in their Indian Premier League (IPL) clash on Saturday.
Quinton de Kock stole the show with the bat as he hit a 52-ball 81 (4×6, 6×4) to set the tone for the home team. While de Kock was dismissed in the 19th over, Hardik Pandya carried forward the onslaught to finish with an unbeaten 28 off just 11 balls (4×1, 6×3).
