IPL 2021 Score and Updates –  Quinton de Kock’s unbeaten 70 and some masterful bowling from Jasprit Bumrah in the death overs helped Mumbai Indians beat Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in IPL 2021 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Thursday. Left-handed South African opener’s 63-run stand with Krunal Pandya – 39 runs – for the third wicket helped MI chase down a target of 172 with nine balls to spare. Earlier, Jasprit Bumrah led the way as the five-time champions put the brakes on RR’s innings to restrict them to 171/4. Chris Morris dismissed MI captain Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav in the first 10 overs but de Kock and Pandya then closed out any chances that may have opened up for RR. Pandya eventually fell in the 17th over to Mustafizur Rahman after which Kieron Pollard smashed 16 runs in eight balls to take MI over the line. Put in to bat, Rajasthan rode on 42 by skipper Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler’s 41 to post a competitive 171 for four but their efforts was overshadowed by de Kock, who struck six fours and two maximums to complete the task in 18.3 overs at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.

    QDK – Player of the Match!

  • 9:48 PM IST

    Quinton de Kock is named ‘Player of the Match’ – To be totally honest, this is a much better wicket in general than Chennai (bright smile). But no this did skid on a little bit better, had to play the situation. That is all I had to do. The coach and Rohit did ask us to come out and be positive today. That’s what we did and we came out on top. (On what he enjoyed most in his innings) Just getting to the team to the end. Haven’t done it often, but when I do it I thoroughly enjoy it. I just came out and tried to be positive. That’s what the coach said and I said please sign me up I want to be positive. I have played enough to understand how to go about it. I just had to rethink what I have done in the past and do it again here.

    Rohit Sharma, Mumbai captain – “Absolutely brilliant, we needed this win badly after a couple of losses, we did pretty much everything right, from ball one, very clinical towards the end as well. This is something that was required, we took the responsibility, good to see a complete team effort. We were positive about coming to Delhi, knew this was a good pitch, not like Chennai, we have played a lot of games and we do understand the conditions here. A good pitch, small boundaries, you always back yourself to do well, but having said that the bowlers did the job for us, came back pretty well in the death overs, giving 50 odd runs with 7 wickets in hand was a great effort.

    IPL 2021 Live Cricket Score Online: Once again the Mumbai Indians bowlers were the focal point! After a troubled beginning in the first 10 overs, they made a resounding comeback and didn’t allow Rajasthan the desired finish. Rahul Chahar and Jasprit Bumrah were brilliant in their spells and must be commended for playing a big role in keeping Rajasthan down to 171. During the chase, Quinton de Kock finally spent some time in the middle and regained his lost touch. Plenty of positives for the defending champions along with this victory. That’s all we have from this match but don’t go too far away as the second match of the evening is about to begin. Hop tabs and catch all the action. Cheers!

    Live Cricket Score IPL 2021 Today Match: FOUR! Kieron Pollard puts the finishing touches in this game! Mumbai are back to winning ways! On the pads, Pollard clips it through fine leg. There is no one in the deep. Mumbai return to winning ways! They have pulled off a clinical chase to end their losing streak. It could have been a tricky chase had Rajasthan picked early wickets in the Powerplay but that didn’t happen as the pair of Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock put on a strong opening stand. That put Mumbai in good stead and then the stand between Krunal and de Kock almost put the chase to bed. Towards the end, Kieron Pollard flexed his muscles and overhauled the target with 9 balls to spare. Mumbai Indians (172/3 in 18.3 overs) Beat Rajasthan Royals (171/4) by 7 wickets | Quinton de Kock 70*, Krunal 39; Morris 2/33
