MI VS RR MATCH-42 IPL23
MUMBAI INDIANS WON BY 6 WICKETS
LOCATION – Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
MI accomplish a record chase at the Wankhede against RR, a formidable foe. Yashasvi Jaiswal, who was on the attack from the first ball, helped Rajasthan get off to a fast start. The powerplay score was 65 with no losses. Jaiswal kept up the attack till the 20th over, when he scored his first IPL century. In the overall scheme of the match, Piyush Chawla and Kumar Kartikeya bowled economically. Chasing 212 was never simple, particularly once the skipper was removed early in the innings. Ishan Kishan took the back seat in a 62-run stand as Cameron Green led MI’s reply. Suryakumar Yadav unleashed his hitting power just as the run rate was rising, keeping MI in the game. When SKY scored 20 runs off it in the 13th Over, the momentum swung in MI’s favour. Sandeep Sharma had to make an incredible grab to get rid of an on-pitch Suryakumar Yadav. Tim David demonstrated his talent to the world when 57 runs were needed off of four overs by slamming three sixes in the final over. Tim David reached his final score of 45 without being hit (Sr. 321)
The player of the game is Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Yashasvi Jaiswal said “I didn’t know the ball had gone to the boundary when I struck the century. I simply thanked God for the chance since I had always wanted to pursue this ambition and worked hard to make it a reality. Results will come after. I maintain my mental fortitude and concentrate on my diet and exercise. I had my life well organised outside of cricket.
