A captain’s knock from Rohit Sharma and a solid last over charge from Kieron Pollard has helped Mumbai Indians post 191/4 in their 20 overs.
KL Rahul won the toss at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi and – unsurprisingly – elected to bowl first. Mumbai had Rohit and Quinton de Kock come out to open and the South African fell on a five-ball duck.
Rohit, however, continued on scoring his second half century of the season. He eventually got out on a 45-ball 70.
Last match’s star Ishan Kishan was Krishnappa Gowtham’s only wicket of the match as he got out on 28.
Hardik Pandya then came in to join Kieron Pollard and the two added 67 runs, including the last over off Gowtham that went for 25 runs, including 4 sixes.
