Earlier, with useful innings of batsmen led by Cameron Green, Mumbai Indians scored 182 for eight against Lucknow Supergiants in the Eliminator match of the Indian Premier League on Wednesday. Apart from playing an innings of 41 runs, Green also shared a 38-ball 66-run partnership for the third wicket with Suryakumar Yadav (33). In the lower middle order, Tilak Verma (26 off 22 balls) and Nihal Wadhera (23 off 12 balls) played useful innings to take the team’s score beyond 180 runs. Naveen-ul-Haq was the most successful bowler for the Supergiants who took four wickets for 38 runs. Yash Thakur played well with him and took three wickets for 34 runs. Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first but he was caught by Ayush Badoni at extra cover off Naveen-ul-Haq after the opposition captain Krunal Pandya hit a six and a four in the over. He scored 11 runs. Ishan Kishan (15) opened the account with a four off Krunal’s first ball of the match but the spinner dropped his catch on the next ball.
Ishan then welcomed Krishnappa Gautam with two consecutive fours. Cameron Green, the centurion of the previous match, started with two fours on Naveen but Yash Thakur had Ishan caught by wicketkeeper Nicholas Pooran in his second ball. Suryakumar, running in good form, hit Yash for a six as soon as he came. Green hit three fours in Krunal’s over as the team scored 62 for two in the power play. Suryakumar and Green kept the run rate going in the middle overs. Both hit sixes in Mohsin Khan’s over. Suryakumar completed the team’s century in the 11th over with a four on Naveen. Suryakumar, however, played Naveen’s slower ball in the air and gave a simple catch to Gautam at long off. He hit two fours and two sixes while facing 20 balls. In the same over, Naveen also bowled Green with a slow ball and gave a double blow to Mumbai. Green hit six fours and a six in his 23-ball innings. Mumbai’s run rate took a dip after Naveen lost two wickets in the over. The team could only add 15 runs in 13 to 15 overs. Tilak Verma tried to increase the run rate with a six off Naveen but Tim David (13) was caught by Deepak Hooda off the bowling of Yash in the next over. Coming in as an impact player, Nihal Wadhera hit Naveen for a six but Tilak handed the catch to Hooda. Wadhera also hit Yash for two sixes in the last over to take the team’s score past 180 runs but was dismissed on the last ball.
