Rajkot: Incisive bowling by Jasprit Bumrah in the Super Over led Mumbai Indians to victory over Gujrat Lions in their IPL match here on Saturday night. Mumbai posted 11 runs, exhausting their two wickets, with a ball remaining. Gujarat could only manage six runs in the Super Over.
Parthiv Patel’s 70 off 44 balls set the tone of Mumbai’s run chase, firing nine fours and a six. Patel struck a 43-run opening wicket partnership with Jos Butler but after the latter’s dismissal, Patel got little support from others. After the middle order failed Krunal Pandya (29) rose to the occasion, guiding his team to the door step of victory. But he was run out in the last ball of their innings pushing the match to the Super Over.
Earlier, Gujarat suffered a batting collapse before a rear-guard action saw them post a decent 153/9 with Mumbai producing yet another inspired bowling performance.
