Only 3rd instance in IPL history! Rajasthan Royals replicate their own feat as Jaiswal, Sandeep shine vs MI

Rajasthan Royals (RR) put one foot in the door towards the playoffs with their seventh win in the 2024 edition of the IPL against the Mumbai Indians in Jaipur. The Men in Pink rode on a couple of individual performances from Sandeep Sharma, who registered his maiden T20 five-wicket haul and Yashasvi Jaiswal, who slammed his second IPL century, both against the Mumbai Indians. Sharma’s 5/18 spell kept Mumbai Indians to a chaseable score of 179 while Jaiswal’s ton ensured that the Royals cruised to the target to extend their reign at the top.

With this, the Royals replicated their own feat of having a player score a century and another take a fifer in the same IPL match. This was only the third time it happened and the second time for the Royals while the remaining one was for Gujarat Titans last year when Shubman Gill smashed a century and Mohit Sharma took a five-wicket haul in Qualifier 2.
