Mumbai Indians put up a clinical show on Tuesday after right-hander Suryakumar Yadav's (79*) put the Men in Blue in the driver's seat in an encounter against the Rajasthan Royals. Batting first, Yadav set the tone for the match as MI posted an imposing total of 193/4 after Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
Rajasthan Royals' chase was an uninspired one, reeling at 12 for three before Jos Buttler brought a glimmer of hope to the Steve Smith's side with a brisk 44-ball 70. However, wickets kept tumbling at the other end and RR were eventually handed a 57-run defeat.
While the match had its exciting moments with Superman Keiron Pollard grabbing onto a towering catch at the boundary rope to send dangerous Buttler back to the dugout, it was perhaps Krunal Pandya's "bored" expression while batting that woke up the meme-Twitter.
