Put into bat, Mumbai Indians rode on an aggressive 81 by South African Quinton De Kock to post an imposing 187/5, but Buttler's 43-ball knock studded with eight fours and seven sixes set the tone before Royals survived a scare to finish the game in 19.3 overs.

Rohit Sharma is only one six away from hitting 100 for the Mumbai Indians.

All-Rounder: It's a no-brainer keeping in mind the smashing all-round abilities of Hardik Pandya in mind, no individual will even dare to drop him from his/her fantasy XI. RR's batting line-up, including skipper Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Jos Buttler will need to pull up their socks to confront the Mumbai bowlers at the Wankhede Stadium.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians were bolstered by the return of their regular captain Rohit Sharma, who, along with Quinton de Kock, got their team off to a flier adding 96 for the opening wicket, before Rohit for a well-made 47 from 22 balls.

Rajasthan Royals pacers Jaydev Unadkat and Dhawal Kulkarni along with Shreyas Gopal and leggie Riyan Parag would have to deliver for their skipper if they have to stay alive and make it to the Playoffs. One can also live stream the MI vs RR 2019 IPL match on Hotstar app and Tatasky app. The game will start at 4.00 p.m. IST. Rahane, in fact, outscored Jos Buttler before his dismissal, after he survived an LBW call with the use of DRS. The four of them are the backbones of the Royals' batting. None of the batsmen could score a big innings with Ben Stokes emerging as the top-scorer with 28 runs.

R2-D2 is there too, though I wouldn't count him as a minifigure, and it seems you can swap Leia's skirt for pants if you'd prefer. The Danish building-block company just announced the largest display ever of Lego "Star Wars" minifigures.
