Yashasvi scores ton as table-toppers Rajasthan defeat Mumbai by nine wickets

JAIPUR: Yashasvi Jaiswal roared back to form with a terrific hundred after Sandeep Sharma’s maiden five-for as Rajasthan hammered Mumbai by nine wickets in the Indian Premier League on Monday.

After Sandeep returned 4-0-18-5 to record the best bowling figures this IPL, Jaiswal found form at last in Rajasthan’s final home game at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, flaying the visitors’ attack during his 104 not out off 60 balls.

Despite a rain intervention delaying the proceedings, Rajasthan did not face much challenge in overhauling a 180-run target set by Mumbai, reaching 183/1 in 18.4 overs.

The contest also witnessed India and RR spinner Yuzvendra Chahal entering history books with 200 dismissals.

Jaiswal’s century not only secured Rajasthan’s seventh win in eight matches but also solidified their position at the top of the IPL 2024 table.
