The Mumbai Indians marched into the Final of the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League to set up a rematch with the 2-time champions the Chennai Super Kings with a narrow 4 wicket win against the Rajasthan Royals in a game that went down to the wire. The absence of a spinner cost the Royals dearly, but it was their shoddy effort in the field which let them down as they leaked in excess of 15 runs and dropped a vital late catch that could have well changed the outcome of this game.

The flip of the coin in this virtual semi-final between the Rajasthan Royals and the Mumbai Indians went the way of Rahul Dravid's team, and he went against the norm by asking to bat first on a pitch that was likely to offer some assistance to the seamers early on because of a tinge of grass and all that sweating under the covers due to the rain.

A terrific bowling effort of 5-16 from Australian seamer James Faulkner went in vain as the Sunrisers Hyderabad, led by a crucial half century by Biplab Samantray crawled to 136-9 in their 20 overs, a total that proved to be enough as their bowlers came to the party in style with Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra the standout performers in particular to lead their side to a 23 run win. The result meant that the Sunrisers moved above the Royal Challengers Bangalore into fourth place in the IPL Standings and can seal that spot on Sunday by beating the Kolkata Knight Riders at home, irrespective of what happens in RCB's match with Chennai tomorrow.

Under the cloud of a spot-fixing scandal, the Rajasthan Royals reached the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad facing the ultimate form of adversity in their final game before the play-offs. Their opponents, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have been the strongest contenders for fourth place and were in a need of at least one, ideally two victories in their remaining games.

The Mumbai Indians beat the Rajasthan Royals by 14 runs in an entertaining contest at the Wankhede Stadium that guarantees them a place in the qualifier, relegating the losing side in all likelihood to the eliminator barring a dramatic final group game for either them or the Chennai Super Kings. The match itself had some major momentum swings, with Rajasthan delighted with their efforts with the ball, but having a poor start before launching a terrific come back only to fall short in the end.

Two well balanced sides with an equal number of points collided against each other at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday evening with one being the formidable Mumbai Indians and the other the sensational Rajasthan Royals. Despite both teams having already confirmed a spot among the top four, it was important for each of them to win to ensure that they went into the Qualifier instead of the Eliminator round in the playoffs.

The Rajasthan Royals picked up just their second away win of the IPL this season, but with it catapulted themselves back into second place, giving them every chance of making the play-offs this year. Having put their hosts Kings XI Punjab into bat in Mohali, the Royals restricted them to just 145-6 in their 20 overs, bowling exceptionally well at the death. The Royals chased down the target with relative ease thanks to yet another half-century from Ajinkya Rahane, who made 59, with crucial contributions also coming from Shane Watson and Sanju Samson.

Adam Gilchrist returned for the toss for KXIP, but it was his counterpart Rahul Dravid who won it and decided to bowl first on a pitch that looked a little dry. KXIP brought Bipul Sharma alongwith their captain in place of Luke Pomersbach and Gurkeerat Singh. The Royals made four changes bringing back Dishant Yagnik, S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Kevon Cooper for Pravin Tambe, Sachin Baby, Stuart Binny and Shaun Tait. Amongst the men sitting out, the unfortunate Stuart Binny had picked up a niggle during his bowling spell in the last game.

Match 50 of the Indian Premier League lived up to the hype as there was some exceptional cricket on display as the Rajasthan Royals defended their proud home record once again, scripting a final over victory over a battling Pune Warriors side.

Batting first on winning the toss, Pune posted an excellent 178-4 on the back of some outstanding batting from their openers and a late flourish from Mitchell Marsh. Pune's effort though was matched all the way by Rajasthan, whose Indian contingent flourished with Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane scoring half centuries before Stuart Binny's brilliant 32 from 13 balls took his side to victory, and back into 4th place in the IPL Standings.
