Bumrah special helps MI edge GL in Super-Over thriller

Bumrah special helps MI edge GL in Super-Over thriller

A see-saw game if ever there was one, Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Lions played out a thoroughly entertaining game in Rajkot. In the end, both teams were tied at 153, and the match went into the Super Over. Mumbai Indians scored 11 in their super over, and defended the same thanks to a superb over from Jasprit Bumrah, who gave away just five to give Mumbai Indians an important win.

Where did things go wrong for GL?

First, with the toss. Suresh Raina won the toss and elected to bat first. Everything from there on went against his side. Ishan Kishan batted superbly at the top of the order, but the rest of the top five failed to turn up. Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Aaron Finch and Dinesh Karthik all scored in single digits as Gujarat Lions found themselves staring at an embarrassingly low score at 56/4.

Even from there, they would’ve hoped for a revival. That wasn’t to be however as Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja and Irfan Pathan all departed to leave them reeling at 101/7.
