IPL 2020: Tyagi is a really exciting talent, says Buttler

Former Indian batsman and legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar heaped praises on pacer Jasprit Bumrah after he took four wickets against Rajasthan Royals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Suryakumar Yadav scored 79 not out from 47 balls as the Indians, who won the toss and elected to bat, set a strong total of 193-4 in Abu Dhabi.

With the convincing win, Mumbai Indians ended their four match losing streak against Rajasthan Royals and are now looking like the frontrunners for the title.

Smith followed Virat Kohli of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer in having to pay $1 600 for the slow over-rate under the IPL code of conduct.

"We have not managed to come off as a top-order in the last three games". Chasing the target, RR was off to the worst possible start as they lost four of their top-order batsmen - Yashasvi Jaiswal (0), Steven Smith (6), Sanju Samson (0), and Mahipal Lomror (11) - with just 42 runs on board in 8.1 overs.

Speaking on the eve of their match against Delhi, Tyagi said, "It was a great experience to play my first game, to make my debut against players whom I've only watched on television was fantastic". Bond said that the Indian fast bowling leader was unhappy with his performance in the tournament and wanted to leave the kind of impression one would expect from a bowler like that. "Outside of Jos and Jofra Archer at the end, we've got work to do on our batting", said Smith.

"Against Smith we tried to block that scoring zone in the leg-side and we forced him to play on the offside". It was good for me to spend time in the middle, find a bit of fluency further on in the innings.

"Right now we have played some consistent cricket, and executing a lot of the skills really well with the ball and bat. But it was nipping around and it's good to have guys who can exploit those conditions", he said. "I struggled initially, but hopefully, I can take some confidence from today and use that for the rest of the tournament", Jos Buttler said.

Kieron Pollard has once again proved why is an asset in the Mumbai Indians (MI) team. With this win, Mumbai is at the top of the table with eight points from six games, while Rajasthan has slipped to the seventh position.
