In an entertaining thriller last night, Mumbai Indians registered a controversial win against Royal Challengers Banglore by 6 runs at M. Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya and pacer Jasprit Bumrah played a crucial role in MI’s first victory of the season.
Earlier, RCB skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bowl first in Match 7 of IPL 2019. Mumbai Indians had a solid start and at one point, they were cruising towards a big total. But RCB’s star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal bowled a superb spell, picking up 4 wickets. With wickets falling at one end, Hardik held the other end and showed his class during the final overs.
Hardik played a brilliant knock of 32 runs in just 14 balls, hitting 2 fours and 3 monstrous sixes. Thanks to some power hitting by ‘kung-fu’ Pandya, Mumbai Indians managed to put up a total of 187 runs in 20 overs.
In the last over of Mumbai Indians’ inning, Hardik Pandya smashes a huge six off Mohammed Siraj, that went out of the park. After hitting that shot, Pandya showed off his muscle power.
