On Sunday, the Mumbai Indians pulled off a stunning six-wicket win over the Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League match at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Despite a magnificent maiden century (124) from talented youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tim David’s three successive sixes in the final over sealed the victory for the home side.
Jaiswal’s incredible performance saw him smash 16 fours and eight sixes to single-handedly power the Rajasthan Royals to a big total. However, the Mumbai Indians fought back with crucial knocks from Cameron Green and Suryakumar Yadav (55 off 29 balls) in the middle, before David finished the match off with Tilak Varma (29 not out).
With 17 needed off the final over bowled by Jason Holder, David hammered three consecutive sixes off the first three deliveries to finish off the game as the Mumbai Indians reached 214 for 4 in 19.3 overs to hand captain Rohit Sharma a birthday present.
Suryakumar also played a vital role in the Mumbai Indians’ victory, smacking an incredible six off Ashwin over fine leg off the first ball he faced. He then quickly got off the blocks with three fours off Holder as the Mumbai Indians reached 98 for 2 at the halfway mark.
Despite the spin duo of Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal not allowing the Mumbai Indians to keep up with the asking rate, Suryakumar trained his guns on Rajasthan Royals’ impact sub Kuldeep Sen, hitting the seamer for three fours and a six to collect 18 runs off four balls.
The celebrations were in full swing for the Mumbai Indians as Tim David and Tilak Varma celebrated their team’s victory.
