Ishan Kishan goes over mid-wicket against Harpreet Brar

Mumbai Indians flexed their batting might to overhaul successive 200+ targets, with Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav bossing the chase against Punjab Kings.

Earlier in the tournament, Lucknow Super Giants had five batters back in the hut at the halfway stage, and Ayush Badoni certainly spared the franchise some blushes. However, it was apparent that KL Rahul’s absence was hurting LSG as his tendency to play percentage cricket may have come handy on such a tricky surface in a ground notorious for producing low and slow turners ever since it’s recent inauguration.

The crown jewel of those dismissals was Ravindra Jadeja unfurling a cracker to hit the top of off to get rid of Marcus Stoinis.

Having cleaned up Manan Vohra early on, Mahesh Theekshana conceded 15 runs in the 17th over and then Chahar, looking off-color on his comeback, gave away 20 in the 19th over. These were crucial runs fetched by Lucknow Super Giants before the drizzle got heavier. Badoni has scored a well-made fifty off 30 balls on this pitch which hasn’t been the easiest to bat on.
