While the Rajasthan Royals bowling attack had plenty of variety, that did not translate to success on the pitch; their bowlers managed to pick up only a solitary wicket in the match against SRH.

Dhawan maintained the intensity and reached his 29th half-century in the tournament in the 10th over. The other spinner in the team, Shakib Al Hasan finished with two wickets too. Sanju Samson did try to stabilize the Royals innings with his watchful 49 from 42 balls, but that was not enough to take his team to a fighting total. Dhawan remained unconquered on 77 off 57 balls, while skipper Williamson smacked 36 not out off 35 balls.

Mumbai unearthed a new talent in leg-spinner Mayank Markrande who put on a wonderful display to flummox the likes of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Amit Mishra has been one of the most consistently successful Indian bowlers in the IPL, staying relevant with the changing times, despite the emergence of a number of new leggies.

Rajasthan have always been good at home so it's a little odd that after just one match where they both lost that the hosts are the bigger of the two.

The run out: It was the hotly anticipated IPL debut of Hobart Hurricanes master blaster D'Arcy Short, and the left-hander was thrust straight into the action as his side were sent in to bat.

And then the onslaught began. Similarly, for Royals, Ajinkya Rahane took over after Steve Smith's ban. A miserly Rashid, who has got the second-best economy rate of 4.89 between overs 6-15 - behind Mustafizur Rahman's 4.66 - since 2015, finished with one for 23. While they have fire power in the form of Deepak Hooda and Yusuf, they still have a tough call to make with respect to their overseas all-rounder. But we lost crucial wickets in the middle overs. They picked up wickets which was very helpful to us. That Royals eventually got to 125 was down to Shreyas Gopal's run-a-ball 18 full of dinks and dabs. I think Siddharth Kaul, he changed his pace really well. Warner has been replaced by Alex in Sunrisers squad. On Monday, Wriddhiman Saha was sent up to open, but fell in an attempt to loft over the infield. Dhawan, who was dropped by Rahane at slips on zero, grew in confidence as he hit Dhawal Kulkarni for the first six of the match in the third over.

With Glenn Maxwell on their batting side, the Delhi team is going to score a good score but what is the matter of concern is their bowling, which proved to be a failure in their last match which was either due to K L Rahul's batting speed or the bad performance of bowlers.
