Rajasthan Royals seamer Sandeep Sharma claimed the 3rd five-wicket haul against the Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2024 clash at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. The right-arm seamer's outstanding figures of 4-0-18-5 wrecked Mumbai Indians' plans in the death overs as they were stopped at 179 eventually, keeping the hosts in the game.

Sandeep Sharma, who replaced Kuldeep Sen in the line-up got his first wicket of the innings in the form of Ishan Kishan as Royals captain Sanju Samson took a smart review. The 30-year-old also dismissed Suryakumar Yadav, followed by Tilak Varma and Gerald Coetzee. The fifth wicket came after dismissing Tim David in the final over.

Despite being 20-3 at one stage, the five-time champions staged an excellent recovery as Nehal Wadhera and Tilak Varma stitched a 99-run partnership off only 52 deliveries. The former top-scored with 65, while Wadhera chipped in with an explosive 49 off 22 balls. Rajasthan Royals convincingly beat the five-time champions during their previous encounter at the Wankhede Stadium.
