    Match report by Dhruva Prasad from Mullanpur

    On the 16th anniversary of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the tournament witnessed one of the most dramatic scripts that the crash, bang, wallop of T20 cricket can serve as Mumbai Indians pipped Punjab Kings by nine runs at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium here on Thursday. 

    IPL 2024: Ashutosh-Shashank heroics in vain as Mumbai Indians escape with nervy nine-wicket win against Punjab Kings

    With Ashutosh almost taking Punjab over the line, and Shashank Singh injecting the first ray of hope with a 25-ball 41 after the home side was reduced to 14 for four, the uncapped Indian duo was yet again left to do the heavy-lifting.

    Another last over heartbreak

    This is the fourth game Punjab Kings has lost in the last over this season. Not for the faint-hearted this cheeky thing called the IPL. 

  • April 18, 2024 23:36
    PBKS 183 all out in 19.1 overs

    Madhwal will bowl the final over. He has to defend 12. Can he? Rabada on strike. MI one wicket away from a win. Everyone is in the bowler’s ear. Chaos. A fielder short outside thanks to their dismal over rate. 

    Madhwal begins with a wide. Not ideal at all! What the bowler can’t do, Ishan Kishan will do as he runs out Rabada at the striker’s end. What an anticlimactic end to a finish that was heating up to a tight finish. PBKS will be heartbroken but boy, how relieved will that MI dugout be feeling! PBKS fans have their faces in their palms. 

    MI wins by nine runs. A very imperfect win but a win nevertheless. 

  • April 18, 2024 23:34
    PBKS 181/9 in 19 Overs

    Hardik will bowl out. MI is 9 minutes behind with their over rate and will be penalised with field permits. Hardik fires a length ball on leg. Harpreet’s run two. Hardik then bowls down leg, Harpreet can’t get a bat on it. Umpire doesn’t give the wide and so PBKS has reviewed. Third umpire says the batter has shuffled and so the decision to not award the wide is upheld. Harpreet then pierces the offside through point, but the fielders stop the ball from running away for a boundary. Harpreet Brar picks up a ball and flicks it to backward square leg but Nabi is there by the ropes to take a clean catch. MI one wicket away from a win. PBKS needs 19 off eight. In walks Rabada. 

    Harpreet Brar c Mohammad Nabi b Pandya 21 (20b 2x4 1x6)

    Rabada begins with a massive six smacked over square leg for six. Bumrah can do nothing but smile. The equation is now down to 12 off the last six. 

  • April 18, 2024 23:26
    PBKS 170/8 in 18 Overs

    Coetzee strikes!!!! Ashutosh holes out to Mohammad Nabi at deep midwicket after a memorable innings. Coetzee is screaming and why won’t he? This is the million dollar wicket for the evening. Is this the wicket MI needs to turn the game around? Harshal joins Harpreet. Coetzee is going short to Harshal in trying to trigger an era. He’s quick too and is not allowing PBKS’ batters to strategise and respond. 23 runs needed from 12 balls.

  • April 18, 2024 23:16
    PBKS 168/7 in 17 Overs

    28 runs needed off 24 balls now. How the tables have turned! Bumrah will now bowl out. What can he do? Ashutosh is not greedy, he gently negotiates Bumrah down short cover for a single. Bumrah darts into Harpreet and has struck his hand. Harpreet’s finger is shaking. Copped one on the right glove. Bumrah checks on the batter. He will continue. Ashutosh guides the ball down to third man for a single. Bumrah is trying to draw a shot from Harpreet as he sends the ball rising. He’s been sticking to his shorter balls. Just three balls come off this over. Bumrah is pro as usual, but PBKS will the happier side given no wickets have fallen and they have the time to see the game through. 

  • April 18, 2024 23:06
    PBKS 165/7 in 16 Overs - FIFTY FOR ASHUTOSH SHARMA

    52 needed off 30. Madhwal returns for his third. Starts with two wides with someone like Harpreet Brar struggling to get to it. Brar manages a single nudging the ball to short third man. Ashutosh on strike now. Brilliant delivery from Madhwal, around the stumps, full and low. Smart from the MI bowler. His brilliance doesn’t matter as he swings at Madhwal, getting the ball to the long off boundary and it’s a no ball. No mercy for MI. Ashutosh then gently swats it the opposite way, a sort of switch hit almost for six. He brings up his maiden IPL fifty. What a knock from the player. Madhwal goes wide again, and the pair has run a single. Harpreet wants a piece of the pie and muscles it straight to the stands. MASSIVE MASSIVE SIX. 24 runs come off the over for PBKS. 

  • April 18, 2024 23:02
    PBKS 141/7 in 15 Overs

    Gerald Coetzee ,comes on and Harpreet Brar drives him beautifully through cover for four. Oh hold on, here comes another one, this time edged fine to the ropes. Mumbai is under the pump now. 57 runs needed off 34 balls. Harpreet then slaps one back to the Coetzee who puts it down. He tried to get on the backfoot and give that ball direction but awkwardly lobs it back to the bowler, taking all the speed off the ball. Coetzee will bowl around the wicket with a packed off side field from Pandya with no protection on the leg side. Ashutosh makes MI pay by swiping it to backward square for four. Coetzee finishes with a dot ball after Rohit drills some advice to him. 13 runs for PBKS from this over. 

  • April 18, 2024 23:00
    PBKS 128/7 in 14 Overs

    Romario Shepherd returns and is welcomed by Ashutosh with a massive six over midwicket. Lovely sound off the bat. He pegs back some momentum varying his lengths and manages to keep Ashutosh away from the boundaries. Even a run out attempt is survived. But the stump doesn’t and umpires have to call for a replacement bringing a pause in proceedings. It allows the players to get some water in. Ashutosh tries to smack Shepherd to the cover boundary off the last ball but hits it straight to the fielder. 

  • April 18, 2024 22:50
    PBKS 120/7 in 13 Overs

    Bumrah back in the attack and Bumrah strikes. 111 is often considered as an unlucky score because of how it looks like the stumps. And PBKS will agree as Shashank gets his judgement of this slower delivery from Bumrah all wrong. A big outside edge is pocketed by Tilak Varma at short midwicket. Bumrah pats Shashank on the back for his effort but the men in blue are thrilled. Bumrah oversteps and a no ball is given. The talismanic bowler goes for his signature yorker but Ashutosh goes on the front foot and sweeps the ball for SIX. He is ecstatic. Honestly, we would be too if we hit someone like Bumrah for six, a yorker that too! 

    Shashank Singh c Tilak Varma b Bumrah 41 (25b 2x4 3x6)

  • April 18, 2024 22:48
    PBKS 111/6 in 12 Overs

    Hardik comes for his third over. Hardik sticks to his fuller deliveries but varies his pace with the pair running three quick singles. But Ashutosh FINDS THE STANDS AGAIN! It’s like a replay of that six from the previous over, nice wristy swipe backward square leg. Hardik pegs it back tightening to concede two singles to finish the over. 11 runs off the over for Punjab. 

  • April 18, 2024 22:43
    PBKS 100/6 in 11 Overs

    Romario Shepherd is handed the ball. Shashank runs a single and gets Ashutosh on strike with 105 needed off 59 now.. The latter finds the boundary through point. He eases the ball through the same region for two runs and then whips the ball over square leg for six. The team 100 comes up. 

  • April 18, 2024 22:35
    PBKS 87/6 in 10 Overs

    Madhwal to Shashank who strikes it straight to the bowler, who tries for a catch but is a little hurt. A full-toss next as Jitesh misses it and the ball hits his pads. The umpire says out but PBKS takes a review. OUT GIVEN!!!

    Jitesh LBW Madhwal 9 (9)

    A yorker next as the new batter Ashutosh Sharma switches the strike. A single follows. SIX!!!! Ashutosh stands his ground and pulls it behind for a maximum! A double to end the over.

    Hardik comes in for his second over, starts with a dot and a wide-ball. Another dot follows as Jitesh struggles to get off strike. A single follows as Jitesh pushes it on-side. Pitches it outside leg next, umpire says wide-ball. A similar ball next, meets the same fate, wide again. A single follows, Jitesh back on strike. FOUR!!!!

  • April 18, 2024 22:13

    Shreyas Gopal comes in to launch the spin attack from one end. SIX!!!! Shashank pulls it over deep mid wicket for a maximum by Shashank! Three singles next as Kings keep rotating the strike. OUT!!!! Gopal takes a brilliant catch as Bhatia tries to strike it down, but not good enough!

  • April 18, 2024 22:07
    PBKS 40/4 in 6 Overs

    Pandya joins the bowling attack. A dot and single to open the over. Two dots next as Bhatia struggles to find his rhythm. A bit short next as it goes for another dot. Another dot and just one run comes off of it. 

  • April 18, 2024 22:04
    PBKS 39/4 in 5 Overs

    Madhwal comes in for his first over and beats the bat with his first ball. Shashank lofts it over the covers next for a FOUR!!! An out-swinger next as Shashank’s out-stretched bat misses.

    PBKS 28/4 in 4 Overs

    Bumrah back with the ball and almost finds Bhatia’s edge, just a dot. FOUR!!! Bhatia flicks it behind for a boundary with impeccable timing. An ins-de edge next but the ball bounced before reaching the keeper, just a dot. A bit short and wide next as Bhatia strikes down and gets a single. A wide and a single next. A yorker next that Bhatia defends well for a dot. 

  • April 18, 2024 21:54
    PBKS 21/4 in 3 Overs

    OUT!!!! Coetzee dismisses Livingstone as he tries to pull it but gives away an easy catch back to the bowler.

  • April 18, 2024 21:32
    SKY gives insights into MI’s batters’ meeting ahead of PBKS clash

    Suryakumar: There was a batters meeting and we spoke about a batter batting for 15-16 overs. That’s what that (his celebration) was about. It took a little more time today but once Rohit got out, someone had to bat deep. 

    He also believes that the total is well above par if dew doesn’t come into play. 

  • April 18, 2024 21:25
    MI 192/7 in 20 Overs

    Harshal begins with a wide bouncer. An lbw appeal comes up vs David off the very next ball, who plays the ball off his pads, which then runs past the keeper for four. Byes are given, but PBKS reviews for the LBW. David is more than safe as the replays suggest. David will eventually hole out to Sam Curran no less at long off. Easy catch this for Curran coming off an almost flat bat from David. 

    Tim David c Curran b Patel 14 (7b 2x4 1x6)

    Romario Shepherd is the man in the middle and he gets off the mark with a single. Three balls to go in this final over for MI. Tilak looked to slog the ball over long on but the ball hits the spider cam. For a minute, everyone was wondering where the ball went. Dead ball called. Tilak repeats the same stroke as he tries to breach the fence, but will get just the single. Romario Shepherd holes out to Shashank Singh at deep square. Harshal had demanded the field setting and Curran is happy it worked, beaming back with a double thumbs up. Nabi comes in to face the last ball. He hit the ball straight into the middle stump at the other end. With Tilak having taken off and the stumps already rocked, Harshal just had to take the ball and pick the stumps which he does. Mumbai finishes with 192/7 in 20. 

    Three wickets and just seven runs come off this Harshal over. Good work this from PBKS. 62 runs come off the last five overs for MI. This is the highest total at this ground now. 

  • April 18, 2024 21:12
    MI 186/4 in 19 Overs

    Curran to bowl the 19th. Tim David has replaced Hardik. Curran keeps David quiet but Curran goes a bit wide with the ball looking like it’s within the tram line. Tim David reviews and is vindicated. Tim David moved a bit outside his off stump region. Kartik Murali on comms is not happy with this wide being given to the bowler. Curran is smacked for a boundary through cover off the very next ball. Curran then opts for the bouncer but David pulls it for four., He then fires a slower delivery which David is happy to dispatch over deep midwicket for six. Another wide for Sam Curran who reviews the call to see if there’s contact with David’s body. Wide is not given. David not happy as he tries to understand what the logic is. 

    Wide - 4 - Wide - 4 - 6 for Sam Curran as he concedes 18 runs in this over. 

  • April 18, 2024 21:06
    MI 167/4 in 18 Overs

    Harshal here for his third. Tilak mishits the two full tosses Harshal serves for him, but third time’s the charm as he smokes this short ball from Harshal over midwicket for six. Pure power and Tim David is delighted in the dugout. Hardik tries to get over the fence over the longer part of the ground but he holes out to Harpreet Brar instead. Harshal gets his man off the last ball of the delivery. 

    Hardik Pandya c Harpreet Brar b Patel 10 (6b 0x4 1x6)

  • April 18, 2024 21:00
    MI 156/3 in 17 Overs

    Curran to bowl out. He takes the pace off as Surya misses with his swing. The ball lost all energy as it fizzled out to the keeper. Curran then fires a wide one which Surya tries to chase. Has he put him down? NO! Prabhsimran’s safe hands plucks the ball out of the air and Surya has to walk back. He can’t help but smile. Wasn;t an easy catch this at backward point. 

    Suryakumar Yadav c Prabhsimran Singh b Curran 78 (53b 7x4 3x6)

    Hardik joins Tilak and is off the mark with a single. Tilak runs a single through deep midwicket to bring up the MI 150. Hardik then smacks a full toss from Curran straight back to the bowler who can’t catch it. Oh this would have a nice wicket. Curran winces as he knows what he’s missed. Hardik makes it sting a bit more pulling a shorter delivery from Curran for six. Eight runs off this over. 

  • April 18, 2024 20:51
    MI 148/2 in 16 Overs

    Rabada to bowl out and starts with a bumper. Tilak tries to pull but his shot is swiped before the ball comes on, sending it straight to his helmet. Physio will check him per protocol. OH LBW APPEAL! And it’s for SKY. Umpire’s finger goes up. MI will predictably review. Replay shows no bat involved. Hardik is waiting ready by the boundary ropes. Ball tracking saves Surya with the ball missing the stumps. DECISION OVERTURNED and there will be relieved hearts in the MI camp. Surya celebrates his lifeline with a boundary, lofted over cover yet again. Lovely shot this from the MI batter. The switch has been flipped as he sends Rabada to the top tier of the stands in the fine leg direction. Vintage SKY this as he bends just a bit to send the ball behind him for a maximum. Tilak wants to join the party as he fires Rabada into the stands over deep midwicket. 18 RUNS FROM THIS OVER. Just the over MI needed. 

  • April 18, 2024 20:47
    MI 130/2 in 15 Overs

    Arshdeep to bowl his third. Wonder what’s happening with the wicket that Surya is suddenly looking a bit aggrieved. Kevin Pietersen also believes the dimensions of the boundary might play a role here. We’ll have to wait to hear from the MI players after their innings. Arshdeep changes his pace and SKY is just swinging with a hint of frustration. OH HERE IS THE BOUNDARY, AFTER 22 BALLS. Tilak Varma made some room for himself on the backfoot to see if the ball’s pace changed. Goes down the ground for four. He’s managed another one off the next ball, piercing extra cover and mid off for another boundary. Tilak is evidently looking to attack. Arshdeep bowls a wide and is punished by SKY with a four, the ball lofted over cover. 

  • April 18, 2024 20:42
    MI 115/2 in 14 Overs

    Rabada returns for his third and it’s back to pace from Punjab. The host has stifled the boundary flow. A fairly tight line from Rabada with just the hint of a bait outside off to draw out a bad shot. 20 balls now since the last boundary. Proper slow down here. Will this cost MI? 

  • April 18, 2024 20:32
    MI 109/2 in 13 Overs

    Harpreet to bowl his third. Quiet over so far, with four runs coming off ones and twos. Surya isn’t taking too many risks at the moment, he’s happy to send the ball along the ground in the gaps to keep the strike rotating. The tempo has slowed down a bit. No boundaries from the over. Eight runs conceded. And the timeout is taken. 

  • April 18, 2024 20:29
    MI 101/2 in 12 Overs

    Curran returns for his second. Surya gets two through midwicket and a single pushed to long-on. A slower ball from Curran then crashes into Rohit’s helmet grill. Customary concussion protocol in effect as the physio checks him out. Rohit was looking to sweep and had got down low to do the same. Turns out it is the just the momentum break PBKS was looking for as Curran STRIKES. Rohit swings at a fuller delivery from Curran but Rohit doesn’t connect fully, with the ball heading to Harpreet Brar at backward point. Relief for the Punjab Kings. Tilak is the new batter. Just five runs from the over for Curran. Nicely done. 

    Rohit Sharma c Harpreet Brar b Curran 36 (25b 2x4 3x6)

  • April 18, 2024 20:22
    MI 96/1 in 11 Overs - FIFTY FOR SURYA

    Harshal returns for his second. Peppers Surya with a few short balls. He sends the second delivery for a single through deep square leg to bring up his fifty off 34 balls. Harshal slows it down to Rohit and the Hitman has sent the ball soaring straight down the ground for SIX. Wasn’t a bad ball from Harshal with Rohit also realising that he’ll have to push for this to clear the ropes. It clears Sam Curran by the ropes. A bigger ground and he would have been done for. A yorker to SKY to end the over. No run. 

  • April 18, 2024 20:16
    MI 86/1 in 10 Overs

    Livingstone is back with the ball for his second over. Tries to attack the leg-stump as Surya hits it down for a single. A dot follows.

    Shreyas Gopal defends skipper Hardik Pandya amidst transfer trolling

    Mumbai Indians leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal said it is inspiring to see how Hardik Pandya is handling the heat he has been facing from fans since his appointment as the franchise’s new skipper in the IPL.

    Rohit Sharma says he is not a fan of the impact player rule

    India skipper Rohit Sharma is “not a big fan” of the IPL’s ‘Impact Player’ rule as he feels it is hurting the country’s all-rounders by not allowing cricketers like Washington Sundar and Shivam Dube to showcase their bowling prowess.

    The ‘Impact Player’ Rule, introduced in the 2023 season, allows all IPL teams to substitute a player -- batter or bowler -- during their respective innings as per the demands of the match. 

    Rohit explained at length why, for the sake of entertainment, development of players shouldn’t be forgotten.

    India, save Pandya, doesn’t have a genuine seam bowling all-rounder in contention for the T20 World Cup, although Dube’s name is being discussed.

    “Eventually, cricket is played by 11 players not 12 players. I am not a big fan of ‘Impact Player’, you are taking out so much from the game just because of little bit of entertainment, for people around,” he pointed out.

    “...I can give you so many examples, guys like Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube are not getting to bowl. For us (Indian team), it is not a good thing you know. I don’t know what you can do about it but I am not a fan of it, frankly speaking,” he said.

    PBKS vs MI - Match preview by Dhruva Prasad

    Punjab Kings will look to make the most of home comforts when it meets Mumbai Indians in its third consecutive Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium here on Thursday.

    Despite coming off two straight defeats, Kings will fancy a campaign revival against a Mumbai side that finds itself in a bind, both on and off the field, not least after succumbing to a morale-sapping 20-run loss to league rival Chennai Super Kings at home.
