VIDEO: Hardik Pandya abusing Jasprit Bumrah for not diving to stop the ball
Mumbai Indians lost their opening match against Chennai Super Kings at the very first of 13th edition of Indian Premier League IPL. Hence they started well, although they lost Quinton de Kock at the early phase of the inning.
But it was skipper Rohit Sharma along with youngster Suryakumar Yadav who put a big total on the board as Rohit scored 80 off 54 balls and Suryakumar scored 47 off 27 deliveries. Tiwary, Pollard and Pandya’s cameo made it 195 for the loss of five wickets in 20 overs.
While chasing a big total of 195, KKR stumbled as they lost their opening pair who couldn’t surpass double figures. Skipper Karthik and Rana tried some resistance but both of them got out before the team could pass half of the target as Karthik scored 30 runs 23 balls and Rana scored 23 off 18 balls.
Morgan and Russell failed to bring the match as they also departed early. In the end, Pat Cummings played a beautiful knock of 33 runs from just 12 balls. But they managed to reach 146 for nine wickets in 20 overs.
Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult both took 2 wickets in four overs slot. On the other hand, Shivam Mavi from KKR picked two wickets for the Knight Riders.
Hardik Pandya was not happy with Jasprit Bumrah’s efforts:
During the over off Pollard, the England skipper pushed the ball towards the point. Bumrah, who was standing at the point position, tried his best by extending his hands but it went past him.
Hardik Pandya who was standing at the mid-off tried his best to stop the ball by putting a great effort. But, he could not stop the ball from reaching the boundary. Pandya, who completed his dive, got angry and asked Bumrah to dive to stop the ball.
