Mumbai Indians' Alzarri Joseph jammed his right shoulder into the turf and was seen writhing in pain. The Mumbai team physio, Nitin Patel, could be seen tending to the Antiguan pacer.

“We don’t know (the situation yet). He was on the physio’s table. We will have to wait,” Ishan Kishan said about Alzarri Joseph's injury.   -  Getty Images

Following his 52-ball 81 against the Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians' South African recruit, Quinton de Kock, felt dehydrated and did not take the field in the second innings.

In his absence, Ishan Kishan took charge behind the stumps. “It was very hot and he (de Kock) had batted for long. So, it was a case of just some dehydration. He should be fine before the next game,” Ishan said in the post-match media interaction.

The young wicketkeeper-batsman also credited Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler for scripting a win with a blistering 43-ball 89. “Buttler batted really well. It’s not easy to bat on a slow wicket, so the credit goes to him…” Ishan said.

After Buttler and Sanju Samson’s exit, Mumbai tried putting the pressure back on the Royals, but K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal held their nerves to take the team over the line. “We bowled well after Samson got out and got wickets too, but they got some lucky boundaries. I think we played good cricket. We got to know a bit late where and how to bowl on this track,” Ishan said.
