IPL 2022: Mumbai Indians win first game on Rohit Sharma’s birthday, beat Rajasthan Royal by 5 wickets

Mumbai Indians have drawn first blood in the ongoing Indian Premier League as the tournament’s most successful team registered a comfortable win vs Rajasthan Royals on skipper Rohit Sharma’s birthday.

Seasoned Suryakumar Yadav and young Tilak Varma gave the best 35th birthday present to their skipper Rohit Sharma as Mumbai Indians finally opened their account. Chasing a victory target of 159, MI reached home in 19.2 overs, courtesy Surya (51 off 39 balls) and Tilak (35 off 30 balls) adding 81 for the third wicket.

It was MI’s first win after eight successive defeats and even though the result bears little consequence but it is certainly going to keep the five-time champions in a good mind space.

Brief scores: Rajasthan Royals 158/6 in 20 overs (Jos Buttler 67, Ravichandran Ashwin 21; Riley Meredith 2/24) lost to Mumbai Indians 161-5 in 19.2 overs (Suryakumar Yadav 51, Tilak Varma 35; Ravichandran Ashwin 1/21) by 5 wickets
