In what was the 1000th match in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Mumbai Indians chased down a gigantic target of 213 runs against Rajasthan Royals to keep themselves in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs. The victory was MI’s 4th from 8 matches while RR squandered the opportunity to regain the top spot in the points table with the defeat. It was Yashasvi Jaiswal who scored his maiden IPL ton to set the perfect stage for the Royals but Tim David and Suryakumar Yadav‘s heroics at the end enable MI to take two points from the game.
Devon Conway (414), Ruturaj Gaikwad (354) and Virat Kohli (333) complete the top 5.

Chennai Super Kings pacer Tushar Deshpande is the current holder of the Purple Cap with 17 scalps in 8 matches. He has a strike-rate of 11.76 though his economy rate is on the higher side, at 11.07. He is followed by Punjab Kings’ Arshdeep Singh, with 15 wickets, at the second spot.
Mohammed Siraj (14), Rashid Khan (14) and R Ashwin (13) are the next three bowlers in the list.
