With Mumbai and Rajasthan having played each other twice, this edition's quota of optical illusion is over. Someone must do something about their similar uniforms, as the teams should about the remaining two play-off spots. HYD and CHN have qualified; and PUN, KOL and RAJ are tied on 12 points (and in that order), while Mumbai hover around on 10 points. Should be a tight finish, just as the major reshuffle before the season promised. Time for Pratyush Sinha to mop up the comm. box clean alongside Shashikant Singh, Sriram, Vineet Anantharaman, Ramakrishnan and Akshay Maanay. Time to get my dinner bills settled.. ta-ta!

Buttler - Player of the Match: "Found some good form and I'm trying to keep it going. Bit of do-or-die situation for us. I've spent a lot of time batting in the middle order, so I try to be there till the end. Our bowlers bowled very well and restricted them to about 15 runs less. The familiarity of the ground and the wicket helped me today. Looking forward to the next game."

Rahane: "Great win for all of us. 168-169 on this wicket was 10-15 runs short. Jofra's couple of wickets in that over changed the game actually. We didn't get a partnership in the earlier games but we knew that if we get one early on, it'll be easy to chase. The discussion before the game was to get used to the wicket as soon as possible. There's room for improvement in the fielding department. I want the boys to stand up and do well in that."

Jofra Archer: It was a good pitch to bowl on. It was a set plan to bowl spin up front. We weren't really nervous coming into the game tonight.

Samson: Very happy. The team atmosphere has been good whether we have been winning or losing and that matters now. He (Buttler) is in amazing form. Real players come out when the team needs them. Very lucky to have him. Very happy with the way I am batting and my contribution to the team. That was amazing (the Hardik Pandya catch). I have been working on my fitness and thanks to our fielding coach Dishant Yagnik.

Rohit Sharma: On a pitch like that we should have scored 15-20 runs more. In the games that we lost in the past, we didn't finish well with the bat. Today was another game we didn't finish well, but I don't want to be too harsh because we have been playing good cricket. We need to work on a few areas. We need to keep our heads high and hope for two good games. It's not going to be easy defending whatever target is set, but that's not an excuse for us. We have played enough cricket to understand the conditions here. He (Buttler) has been in great form. He didn't give us any chances.

It was Buttler again, striking his fifth consecutive fifty as an opener and taking Rajasthan home. He had Rahane's run-a-ball innings for company, and got through some sharp deliveries from Bumrah, who before today had gotten him out on three out of three occasions. The win takes Rajasthan to the fifth position, while Mumbai sit below them, low at sixth.

- RAJ beating MUM tonight means CHN has become the second team to qualify for the Playoffs of T20 League 2018 after HYD.
- PUN and only one among RAJ/KOL can now reach max of 16. MUM & BLR can now finish with a max of 14 points.
- Buttler is the first player to be stranded in the 90s in two successive innings in T20 League

11:34pm local: Ben Stokes is beating Buttler's back like a drum. He's pumped up and rightly so. Make no mistake about this win. This is huge. With both teams tied on 10 points, and RAJ lagging behind on the NRAJ, this match was crucial, bearing the potential to be a sustainer in the competition. And Rajasthan take the honours, sending CHN into the play-offs. Rahane won a good toss, put Mumbai in, strangled them after a good opening stand, and chased it with dew for aid.

Hardik Pandya to Buttler, SIX, Mumbai Buttler'ed at home. Slow ball sitting up and martyed over cow corner

Wonder if it'll Stokes hitting the winning runs. Nah, Buttler is on strike

Ben Stokes, left handed bat, comes to the crease

Hardik Pandya to Samson, out Caught by (sub)Rahul Chahar!! With 4 needed, he goes for the glory hit and falls. Slow cutter, Samson went for the all-hands loft over cover and found Chahar in the deep. Samson c (sub)Rahul Chahar b Hardik Pandya 26(14) [4s-2 6s-2]

Hardik Pandya to Samson, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Hardik Pandya to Samson, no run, goes back to the off-pace delivery that dips right in front of Samson and deceives him
Hardik Pandya to Samson, SIX, this is a glorious glorious pull. Pandya just stares and walks back to the top of his mark. You do that when you've been pulled off the front foot, and the ball flies over deep mid-wicket
Hardik Pandya to Samson, SIX, that's flown off Samson's bat. He walks stone-faced to the middle of the pitch and punches gloves with Buttler. Slow ball sitting up and Samson mowing it over cow corner has to be a sight to behold
Hardik Pandya to Samson, no run, slices this low-wide ball outside off to point

Hardik Pandya [3.0-0-34-1] is back into the attack

McClenaghan to Buttler, FOUR, that's been muscled through long-on. Going against McClenaghan's angle from over the wicket and going through the line. One bounce and into the ropes. Just the 16 needed
McClenaghan to Buttler, no run, it was outside the tramline, this full ball, but Buttler shuffled across in his crease, so fair enough
McClenaghan to Samson, 2 wides, banged in too short, Samson doesn't even go for the pull. Stands, and Kishan behind the stumps jumps, gets the tip of his gloves and keeps it to just the single (plus the wide extra)
McClenaghan to Buttler, 1 run, back to over the wicket to Buttler. Bowls it slow and on a length, Buttler slaps it to long-off
McClenaghan to Samson, 1 run, he's standing outside off-stump here and gets a slow back of a length delivery from McClenaghan, that Samson inside-edges onto his body. Runs the single on offer
McClenaghan to Samson, no run, goes round the wicket to Samson and elicits an outside edge on the front foot drive. Scoots to backward point. It's a dot ball more importantly. 24 off 22
McClenaghan to Buttler, 1 run, bowls full and wide from over the wicket, and Buttler checks the push to long-off. Must have stopped on him

Mitchell McClenaghan [3.0-0-19-0] is back into the attack

See Shane Warne out there in the middle in the time-out. Rohit's animated in his little huddle. Let's see what we have in store.

Time-out! With 25 needed off the last 4 overs, MUM can do with it. Doesn't look like this total will be defended. So much dew that Yadav slipped in the outfield while taking the catch, so imagine the bowlers trying to slip in the slower ones on a flat deck.

Markande to Buttler, 1 run, drags the length back and forces a shimmying Buttler into an unabitious nudge to long-on
Markande to Samson, 1 run, drawn on the front foot for a drive through to wide long-off
Markande to Samson, FOUR, he's joining the party. Very slow from Markande, trying to get Samson to miscue one, but doesn't on this occasion. Makes room, waits for the dip and lofts it over straight mid-on
Markande to Buttler, 1 run, was actually a delivery down leg but Buttler's managed to reverse-sweep it through covers. This man!
Markande to Samson, 1 run, nurdles it to backward square leg
Markande to Samson, FOUR, drifting on leg-stump and it's been cutely paddled away. Runs very fine, through keeper's left and runs for a boundary. Not a great start that by Markande

Mayank Markande [2.0-0-20-0] is back into the attack

Bumrah, Mitch and Pandya each have one over left. It's going to be interesting. Here's MM

Bumrah to Samson, 1 run, back of a length and into the batsman, and Samson's happy to nudge it around for a single through mid-wicket. 37 off 30 now

Buttler is the second player to score 80+ in three successive innings in T20 League after Maxwell in 2014.

Bumrah to Buttler, 1 run, 141ks this time and it bounces over the stumps.. off Buttler's inside edge. Angled it in nicely and then beat him with extra pace. Buttler in no position to even defend. Lays his dead bat out there, and survives

Sorry for that dew pun. we are waiting for the ball btw

Bumrah to Buttler, SIX, and now one better. Swivels this time, and deposits the short ball over long leg this time. Game slipping, or has it already?
Bumrah to Buttler, FOUR, he's making a living out of his hands. Nicely keeps his weight distributed between front and back, so he can go either way. Opens the stance and swats this back of a length delivery over mid-wicket
Bumrah to Samson, 1 run, back of a length outside off at 140ks, Samson uses the pace and sends a single down to third man
Bumrah to Buttler, 1 run, stays put and punches this 142ks delivery through covers

Jasprit Bumrah [2.0-0-20-1] is back into the attack

51 runs, 6 overs. That's 8.5 runs per over, which is not huge. RAJ should get there as long as Buttler's at the crease

Hardik Pandya to Buttler, 1 run, cuts this slower delivery through cover-point. Nicely on his back foot to get on top of the bounce
Hardik Pandya to Buttler, 2 runs, backs away and lifts the slower delivery straight down the ground
