News Daily Digital Desk: Impeccable Butler. Impeccable Chahal. The impeccable Rajasthan Royals. Rajasthan, the first-time champions, also won their second match in the IPL. Butler's century and Chahal's impeccable bowling virtually knocked out five-time champions Mumbai Indians. Mumbai lost to Rajasthan by 23 runs. As a result, Rohit has to face defeat in the first two matches of the season.

Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma decided to bowl first after winning the toss at the DY Patil Stadium. But Rohit's decision was not very fruitful. One of the reasons is Rajasthan opener Jos Butler. He single-handedly bowled the Mumbai bowlers. Butler hit his first century of the current IPL (IPL 2022) season with just six balls. He hit 11 fours and five over boundaries. Rajasthan made 193 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in the allotted 20 overs thanks to Butler's century. Without Butler, captain Samson made 30 off 21 balls and Hetmeyer made 35 off 14 balls. Murugan Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah got 3 wickets each for Mumbai.

Mumbai did not have a good start playing with the target of 194 runs. Captain Rohit failed to bat again on this day. The five-time champions lost to the captain by 15 runs. Young Anmolpreet Singh could not stand for long. However, Ishan Kishan and Tilak Burma returned Mumbai to the match. Ishan scored 54 off 43 balls and Tilak scored 61 off 33 balls. But after the fall of their wickets, the Mumbai Indians broke up again. Tim David and Daniel Sams quickly returned to the pavilion. Rohit's team could not handle that push anymore. In the end, Pollard tried alone, but to no avail. Mumbai's innings ended at 160 for six.

With this, Rajasthan won the first two matches of this season. They have also risen to the top of the points table. Bat-ball seems to be one of the best teams in their tournament. Mumbai, on the other hand, lost both the matches. The fact that there are multiple loopholes in Rohit's team is also proved in the first two matches. Although a slow starter along with Mumbai. Now it remains to be seen whether Mumbai can return to the tournament at the end of the season.
