Rajasthan Royals inflicted the biggest loss over Mumbai Indians and kept their fans at home happy with a superlative performance for an 87-run win at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
Batting first Rajasthan Royals posted 179 for 3 on the back of Ajinkya Rahane's unbeaten 68, before their bowlers put on a magnificent performance to rout the MI batting. The 87-run defeat was Mumbai Indians’ biggest defeat in IPL history!
Needing 180 to win, MI got off to a bad start as Ajit Chandila dismissed the two legends Sachin Tendulkar (1) andRicky Ponting (4) in quick succession. Tendulkar fell top edging a sweep to short fine-leg while Ponting lobbed the ball straight back to Chandila attempting to work one to the leg side.
At the halfway stage MI were 42 for 4, still requiring 138 runs. Dinesh Karthik (30) trying to break the shackles fell caught by Brad Hodge off James Faulkner. Wickets continued to fall as Rishi Dhawan (0) was caught at short mid-wicket. Harbhajan Singh was the next man to be dismissed; he was involved in a mix-up with Ambati Raydu, with both batsmen ending up on the same end of the pitch. Mitchell Johnson (11) and Ambati Raydu (27) fell in the space of six deliveries and MI were eventually bundled out for 92 – their second lowest total in the IPL.
Earlier RR won the toss and elected to bat. Openers Watson and Rahane (68*) started off well with two boundaries off Mitchell Johnson before Watson whacked Dhawan for a six over square leg. Rahane also came down the track and hoisted Pragyan Ojha for a six in the fifth over.
Watson continued his assault with three boundaries off Lasith Malinga as RR made 58 runs in the power play. Pollard got the vital breakthrough having Watson (31) caught behind.
Rahul Dravid sprang a surprise when he had Dishant Yagnik bat up the order; the wicket-keeper batsman played fearlessly hitting Pollard for a six, as RR raced to 88 for 1 at the halfway stage. Rahane and Yagnik together put on 53 run for the second wicket.
Harbhajan Singh finally got Yagnik (34) caught by Tendulkar at short fine-leg. Stuart Binny (4) departed soon after he was run out by Johnson. Brad Hodge (27*) slogged Harbhajan Singh for a six as RR got a move on in the final overs. Some hefty blows at the end including 19 runs from the last over off Malinga helped RR reach 179 for 3 in 20 overs. Rahane carried his bat to remain undefeated on 68.

One over, four wickets, including the second hat-trick of Pepsi IPL 2013, by leggie Amit Mishra enabled Sunrisers Hyderabad to manage an inspiring performance at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, in Pune.
SRH superbly defended a meager 119 against hosts Pune Warriors India. Amit Mishra scripted a stunning victory, starring with both bat and ball to help bowl out PWI 11 runs short.
Chasing 120, PWI started aggressively. Robin Uthappa flicked two boundaries off Dale Steyn before driving Ishant Sharma down the ground. Aaron Finch then hit two boundaries off Steyn's second over. Thisara Perera then struck a dual blow by dismissing Uthappa (22) and Finch (16) off consecutive deliveries. Uthappa was caught at deep square leg, while Finch was done in by the extra bounce and found the man at point. Karan Sharma then had Tirumalasetti Suman out leg before to get SRH their third wicket.
With less than 6 runs needed per over, PWI were on their way home but then Steven Smith (17) top edged a pull shot and was caught at the fence by Ashish Reddy off Ishant Sharma. The wickets of Marsh (14) and Abhishek Nayar (0) brought SRH back into the game. Needing 14 off 12, Mishra bowled a brilliant over picking four wickets which included a hat trick to bundle out PWI. Mishra dismissed Angelo Mathews (20), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (0), Rahul Sharma (0) and Ashok Dinda (0) to help SRH gain a welcome two points.
Earlier PWI won the toss and opted to field. PWI struck first getting rid of Quinton de Kock (2) who came in for Kumar Sangakara, caught at cover off Dinda. Bhuvneshwar Kumar who swung the ball beautifully bowled Parthiv Patel (12) and Cameron White (0) off consecutive deliveries to leave SRH reeling at 15 for 3 in 3 overs. The wickets continued to fall as Kumar then had Hanuma Vihari (1) edging to Finch at first slip to claim his third wicket. Karan Sharma (7) was trapped leg before by Rahul Sharma to have half the SRH side back in the hut.
The slide continued as Marsh then had Perera (2) caught behind. Biplab Samantray provided some resistance hitting Sharma for a boundary before launching him for a six over square leg. Sharma however had his revenge having Samantray (37) caught at long-off to reduce SRH seven down. Ashish Reddy (19*) played a few shots including hitting a six off Matthews. Along with Mishra, who scored 30 off 24 balls, the two saw SRH reach 119 for 8 from their 20 overs.
