The smiles in the MI dug out says it all. They are mighty pleased with the effort. 160 on this Wankhede surface is well below par. However, 142 was defended in the previous game and RPS will look at that game for inspiration. Rahane and Tripathi got them off to a solid start – adding their highest opening stand of the season. But lost three wickets in quick succession. The visitors could not recover after that and a small cameo from Tiwary ensured that RPS had something to defend.
RPS: 160/6 (20.0 Ovrs)
Let us wait and see if team Smith can defend the score they have put on board. Stay tuned with us at BFY !
