On Wednesday, Mumbai Indians secured a six-wicket victory over Punjab Kings in an IPL match, thanks to Ishan Kishan’s stylish 75 off 41 balls and Suryakumar Yadav’s 360-degree effort that fetched 66 off 31 balls. Ishan was at his furious best, hitting seven fours and four sixes, while Suryakumar batted with his usual flair, hitting eight fours and two sixes, making a mockery of the 200-plus chase and winning with seven balls to spare.
Jitesh Sharma, an uncapped player, matched T20 specialist Liam Livingstone in flair and flamboyance, propelling Punjab Kings to a fighting 214/3 after Mumbai Indians opted to bowl. However, Arshdeep Singh took a stunning catch to dismiss Suryakumar off Aussie seamer Nathan Ellis, and then he came to bowl the next over and accounted for Ishan with a knuckleball.
The left-handed wicketkeeper-batter batted at his belligerent best and gave Mumbai a perfect start in the company of Suryakumar. Tilak Verma launched mercilessly into Arshdeep Singh, who went for 66 in 3.5 overs, and the match finished in a jiffy in the end.
