IPL 2020, RR vs MI Highlights: Rajasthan Royals (RR) beat Mumbai Indians (MI) by 8 wickets as Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson made light of the target of 196.

Hardik Pandya scored an unbeaten 60 from 21 balls as Mumbai Indians posted a gigantic 195/5 on the board. After electing to bat first, Mumbai lost Quinton de Kock in the first over. But steady knock from Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary laid the perfect platform for Hardik Pandya to explode in the final phase. Ben Stokes (107*), opening the RR innings in the chase, gave momentum to RR from the first over itself. He added a 100+ partnership with Sanju Samson (54*) to take the chase within eminently manageable proportions in the middle overs. RR finally win by 8 wickets with 10 balls to spare.
