MI are yet to open their account in IPL 2022.
The 14th clash of IPL 2022 saw Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders squaring off against each other at the MCA Stadium, Pune. MI continued their dry run this season while losing their third straight game, by five wickets. Shreyas Iyer got the coin landing in his favour and called Rohit Sharma and his men to get the scoreboard moving first. Openers from MI failed to make an impact and contributions came pouring from middle-order batters.
Firstly, popularly called Baby AB, Dewald Brevis flaunted some stunning shots from his kitty and pitched in with 29 off 19. Coming for the first match of the season, Suryakumar Yadav let his bat talk boldly as he shined with a stunning fifty (52 off 36).
It was a fine contribution from another middle-order batter Tilak Verma, who smashed 38 off 27 deliveries to strengthen Mumbai’s position. However, it was MI’s very own Kieron Pollard who played a perfect cameo of 22 off 5 balls to post 161 on the board. Umesh Yadav continued his fine run with the ball as he kept a tight check on runs while conceding at 6.25 and picking a wicket.
Pat Cummins brings magic for KKR in his first game of IPL 2022
Talking of KKR’s chase, it didn’t start off very well while losing two wickets on 35 runs. There were two batters who shined, and shined in a way that all the Mumbai bowlers were left clueless and shocked. While Venkatesh Iyer held one end firmly as he smashed 50* off 41, it was Pat Cummins who turned absolutely ruthless to bring out the joint-fastest fifty in IPL history.
Cummins smashed 50 off 14 balls, equalling KL Rahul’s record, and led his team over the line with a total of four overs remaining. Cummins, who smashed 56 off 15, stunned the crowd with four fours and six sixes from his bat while operating at a strike rate of 373.33. Tymal Mills and Murugan Ashwin got two wickets each to their credit.
