The fate of Mumbai Indians did not return at home. After losing eight matches in a row, the team is on the verge of dropping out of the current edition of IPL. Mumbai, one of the most successful teams in the IPL, is looking nothing like their previous self.
Mumbai Indians sent Lucknow Super Giants to bat first after winning the toss at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. It was yet again a captain Rahul masterclass, scoring a massive ton, and almost single handedly taking his side to a challenging total of 168 runs. Skipper Rahul was unbeaten at 103 of 62 deliveries.
There weren't much contributions from the other end. For Mumbai, Kieron Pollard and Riley Meredith picked up two wickets each.
Batting for the much-desired victory, Mumbai scored 49 runs in the opening over. However, their luck was not good at home. After that, Mumbai started losing wickets at regular intervals. Ishan Kishan scored 8 off 20 balls, Dewald Brevis scored 3 off 5 balls and Suryakumar Yadav scored 6 off 6 balls. Captain Rohit made 39 off 31 balls.
Tilak Verma made with 38 runs off 27 balls. By then, the match was difficult for Mumbai. Mumbai needed 39 runs in the last over to win. Krunal Pandya came in bowling. Kieron Pollard made 19 off 20 balls and was dismissed with the first ball. Jaydev Unadkat was run out in that over and Daniel Sams was caught out.
Mumbai scored 132 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. As a result, Rahul's Lucknow Super Giants won by 36 runs.
