It's another do-or-die battle for hosts Mumbai as well their opponents Rajasthan when they clash tonight at the Wankhede Stadium in a crucial T20 2018 contest.

His knock comes just two days after he smashed an unbeaten 95 against the Super Kings, Rajasthan now the only team to have won their past three matches.
