Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya’s maiden visit to Wankhede Stadium was everything from a fairytale as the five-time winners lost their third straight match, this time with 27 balls remaining. Rajasthan Royals dealt them a severe thrashing, moving to the top of the points table with a hat-trick of wins because to outstanding performances from Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Riyan Parag.

During the first over of the match, Boult removed Rohit Sharma, Naman Dhir, and Dewald Brevis for first-ball ducks, leaving Mumbai breathless. His 3 for 22 was only equaled by Chahal’s 3 for 11, as he dominated the middle overs to prevent Mumbai from mounting a batting resistance.

Parag led the Royals’ pursuit of 126 and pulled them out of some early difficulties. With six, six, and four at the end of the game, he maintained his perfect record of 54 and rose to the top of the orange cap leaderboard.

At this ground, Rohit, the former captain of Mumbai, was expected to be the crowd favorite, but he was only able to bat for one ball before Boult got a ball to swing away from the right-hand batsman and edge it behind. With the next ball, Boult swung it the opposite way, nipping Dhir with a full ball.

Mumbai called in Impact Player Brevis in the second over itself after two wickets were lost in the first six balls of the match, but he too was caught off guard by the ball that was angling across and was edged to Nandre Burger at short third.

Boult handed the Royals an early edge that they never relinquished, taking three wickets in his first eight deliveries of the match. His final score was 3 for 22.

However, Chahal’s dismissals of both batsmen put an end to any possibility of a rally.

Hardik was dismissed on 34 as he holed out at mid-on while attempting to hit Chahal, having already struck six boundaries in his innings. Shortly after, Tilak was dropped on 32 as Chahal’s googly was edged by R Ashwin at short third.

Gerald Coetzee would be removed from the game too late in the first innings by Chahal to end his stint. Of Chahal’s 24 deliveries, sixteen were dots, and he finished his four-over session with an economy of just 2.75.

Avesh Khan’s late wicket and Burger’s second wicket guarantee Mumbai ended at 125, too low on a pitch that is usually good for batting.

Mumbai’s only chance of winning the chase was to take wickets, and they used their strongest weapon early on when Jasprit Bumrah shared the new ball with Kwena Maphaka for the first time this year.

However, after bowling three of the six powerplay overs, Bumrah was not given a wicket by the Royals batsmen. In his maiden IPL 2024 match, Akash Madhwal claimed three wickets as Yashasvi Jaiswal was dismissed by adolescent team Maphaka.

Sanju Samson chopped a shot onto Madhwal’s stumps with the second delivery of his stint, and he added another when Jos Buttler pulled him to fine leg.

In the sixteenth over, Parag hit Coetzee for six, six, and four to put the final touches on a game that was all but finished. He hit a six over cover to begin the over, and he then slammed a ball past midwicket to achieve his half-century. The winning runs sent Mumbai and the Royals to opposing sides of the points table, sailing past wicketkeeper Kishan to the boundary.
