With the loss, Mumbai records its fifth consecutive defeat in the Tata IPL 2022.
The flip of the coin fell in Mumbai’s bag who opted to field first. Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan provided a solid opening partnership for Punjab Kings as the duo scored 97 runs for the first wicket. Punjab batters carried things off in a similar fashion and kept the scoreboard ticking with their high-value shots.
Fantastic efforts from Mayank Agarwal, Shikhar Dhawan, Shahrukh Khan and Jitesh Sharma helped Punjab to put up a total of 198 runs in the loss of five wickets.
In pursuit of a good total, Mumbai Indians got off to a flier all thanks to Rohit Sharma and his astonishing hitting. However, things didn’t go well with Mumbai as the skipper was soon dismissed by Kagiso Rabada and once again Rohit fell after getting a good start. Ishan Kishan followed Rohit and was also sent back to the hut inside the powerplay.
However, young Dewald Bravis and Tilak Verma dragged MI back into the game owing to their sensational batting. The duo stitched a strong 80 runs partnership and kept Mumbai Indian’s hopes alive to win the game.
Dewald Bravis was dismissed one shy of his maiden half-century in the IPL while Tilak Verma played a 20-ball 36 runs knock before getting dismissed due to a huge mixup in the middle.
Suryakumar Yadav took Mumbai close to the total following the dismissals of Bravis and Verma. SKY managed to score 43 off 30 deliveries, but couldn’t take his side home as he was dismissed by Kagiso Rabada.
The timely fall of wickets hurt Mumbai’s expectation of winning the match and eventually lost the game by 12 runs.
