What seemed to be a straightforward victory for the Mumbai Indians, turned into a nightmare, as a lower order collapse and some exceptional fielding saw the game being tied.
However, Jasprit Bumrah held his nerves in the super over, needing to defend 12 and did a fabulous job indeed.
Batting first on what seemed to be a reasonable deck, Gujarat could only manage 153-9 in 20 overs, as a dominant bowling performance from Mumbai strangled them down. Barring a gutsy 48 from young Ishan Kishan, there wasn’t anything much to write about for the hosts.
The star of the game though was Jasprit Bumrah with his mind-boggling display in the super over. Fans on Twitter were running out of breath during the super over and below are some of the tweets.
He bowled a no ball, he bowled a wide, but it didn't deter him! 👌🙌👊👏💙💙
