MI vs PBKS 33rd Match IPL 2024 Highlights 4-18-2024

Watch cricket video highlights between Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings. Indian Premier League 2024 thirty third match, played at Ahmedabad.

at the Indian Premier League 2024, Punjab Kings lost to Mumbai Indians at Mullanpur by nine runs, despite Ashutosh Sharma’s valiant 28-ball 61. When Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee combined to leave the hosts 14 for 4 in 2.1 overs early in the chase, Kings were in danger of being bundled out for a cheap price. That soon changed to 77 for 6. However, Ashutosh and Shashank Singh gave the match new life with a 25-ball 41. Only 25 more runs were needed for Kings with three overs remaining. But Mumbai never let up the lead after Ashutosh was bowled out at the beginning of the eighteenth over. Mumbai moved up from ninth to seventh in the standings as the Kings suffered their fourth defeat in the final over of the season and their fifth overall.

Coetzee had Prabhsimran Singh caught behind down the leg side in the opening over, putting the Kings on the mat early in their chase of 193. Taking the new ball, Bumrah struck immediately at the other end, dismissing rookie Rilee Rossouw for a duck and the new opener Sam Curran for six. Batting at number four, Liam Livingstone lasted only two balls before his effort to rip off a 150 kph Coetzee delivery was cut back to the bowler. Legspinner Shreyas Gopal trapped Harpreet Singh Bhatia, turning a score of 14 for 4 into 49 for 5. Jitesh Sharma was then leg before wicket for nine by Madhwal, seeing the total rise to 77 for 6.

Shashank had kept Kings’ score moving with the occasional boundary by the time Ashutosh arrived. Shashank hit three sixes and two fours to reach 41 in 25 balls off of his No. 6 position, but runs did not start to flow from either end until Ashutosh joined him. In the tenth over, Ashutosh hit Madhwal for a six over a superb leg, then in the eleventh, he took Romario Shepherd for four and six. He also hit a six off Hardik Pandya in the twelfth over, and in the 13th over, he swept the fast bowler for a bold six, after Bumrah’s dismissal of Shashank. After that, Ashutosh and Harpreet Brar took Coetzee for 13 runs in the fifteenth over, amassing 65 runs in the five overs.

However, Kings gained the lead in the game for the first time during the 16th over of the chase. Madhwal missed his lengths, and Ashutosh gave him back-to-back sixes as a punishment. After hitting another six, Harpreet reduced the score to 28 from four overs.

Kings needed a respectable 25 off 18, but Ashutosh and Harpreet had enough breathing room to see out Bumrah’s last over for only three runs thanks to the necessary run-rate of just seven. However, Coetzee’s remarkable ability to destroy alliances struck once more, when at the beginning of the eighteenth over, he had Ashutosh caught behind deep midwicket. Then, in the 19th over, Hardik removed Harpreet. With Hardik’s final ball, Rabada, the No. 11, hit a six, requiring 13 off seven balls. It was reduced to 11 off six with a single off the penultimate ball of that over and a wide off the first ball of the last over, delivered by Akash Madhwal. Nevertheless, Mumbai could enjoy a fantastic escape when he was run out trying to score a second run on the following ball.

Suryakumar Yadav has played four innings this season and scored two ducks and two half-centuries before to this game. He entered the game on Thursday at No. 3 after Ishan Kishan was dismissed by Rabada in the third over, and he quickly made an impact by hitting two consecutive fours off the same bowler. Since it wasn’t a duck, he would eventually reach the fifty threshold. In the fifth over, Suryakumar utilized his wrists to put Harshal Patel out for another boundary. In the sixth over, he cut Sam Curran off the off side. In the powerplay, he and Rohit Sharma helped Mumbai reach 54 for 1.

They would score 81 runs in 57 balls as a team, Rohit adding just 26 to the partnership. After the powerplay, Suryakumar overpowered spinners Harpreet and Livingstone, while Rohit struggled to rediscover the same fluidity after being deprived of strike for the most of the session. When he attempted to knock Curran over the covers in the twelfth over, he fell for 35 after hitting the point fielder.

Suryakumar had already scored his fifty in thirty-four balls by the time Rohit left. Even though his innings was abnormally slow by his norms, incorrect strokes were also induced by the two-paced surface and the change-up deliveries bowled by Arshdeep Singh and Harshal. Tilak Varma’s dismissal of Arshdeep in the fifteenth over was necessary for Suryakumar to also emerge victorious in his recognizable, signature style. Rabada was hit for four, six, and six in the sixteenth over, following his successful review of an LBW call earlier in the over.

Mumbai reached 148 for 2 in 16 overs thanks to an 18-run Rabada over, and with big hitters yet to come, a total of over 200 was certain. Mumbai could not get much out of Hardik or Tim David, and Curran dismissed Suryakumar for a 53-ball 78 (only the second time he had faced 50+ balls in an IPL innings). Harshal kept Mumbai below 200 with a seven-run, three-wicket 20th over off the bowl. The innings ended with 192 for 7, the highest first-innings IPL total in Mullanpur. Suryakumar informed the announcers he thought the score was “way above par,” and his prediction came to pass, albeit not before Mumbai survived a severe scare.
