In yet another last-over thriller in VIVO IPL 2018, the Rajasthan Royals defeated the Mumbai Indians by 3 wickets at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Sunday night, reports IPLT20.

The platform for the chase of 168 was set by a partnership between Sanju Samson and Ben Stokes, after which K Gowtham polished off the chase with a cameo – the all-rounder striking a massive hit over midwicket to take his team home with 2 balls to spare.

MI opted to bat first and posted a competitive 167 for 7 riding on the back of half-centuries from Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan. Yadav and Kishan snatched the initiative back and put their team on firm footing with a 129-run partnership. But after both the set batsmen were dismissed within five runs of each other and in the space of six balls, RR pulled things back in spectacular fashion.
