They started the onslaught in the third over amassing 18 runs with the South African hitting a six and four off Krishnappa Gowtham. The mishap was like salt on the wounds of the Caribbean, who was torn apart by a rampaging Jos Buttler moments earlier. Despite a tremendous batting performance from Rohit Sharma and Quinto de Kock and a big total, it was simply not Mumbai's day.
Jos Buttler made a sensational return to form as Rajasthan Royals (RR), despite the middle-order wobble, beat Mumbai Indians (MI) by four wickets in the 27th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. De Kock top-scored for Mumbai with 81. De Kock continued his stellar touch with the bat, but the hosts lost wickets at regular intervals thereafter, including that of Kieron Pollard, who made 6.
Buttler's highest T20 score, either internationally or domestically, remains the 95 not out he struck for Royals against Chennai Super Kings in last year's IPL fixture in Jaipur.
The Royals were looking set to chase down the total easily before they lost Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Liam Livingstone and Steve Smith inside 4 runs to get reduced to 174 for 6 from 170 for 2. In his spectacular knock, Buttler smashed seven sixes and eight fours. Even though he wasn't the aggressor in this opening stand, Rohit held his own, running hard between wickets and stroking exquisitely through the off side for a 32-ball 47, eventually holing out in the deep off Jofra Archer.
Seam bowlers:Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Behrendorff and Jofra Archer - the three seamers who could be quite good on the Wankhede surface should be included in the playing XI as all the three bowlers have the ability to run through sides both with the new and old ball. A leg injury had forced Rohit to miss their game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and it remains to be seen whether the skipper has fully recovered or not.

Rajasthan Royals have beaten Mumbai Indians in all three games since their readmission in 2018.
Hardik Pandya's 28-run cameo at the death propelled Mumbai to 187 but it wasn't enough in the end as Rohit's 100th match as captain for Mumbai Indians ended on a gloomy note. However, the required runs were too less for the Mumbai team to garner two points.
Facebook ‘plans’ to bring chat back into main app
The end result is so that users might use only one of Facebook's properties to communicate with others within the same ecosystem. Messenger became separated from Facebook's main app back in 2011 , and frankly, from a user perspective, I never liked the move.
