‘9 off 6 balls’ த Mumbai Indians prevented from hitting: 3 main reasons for victory!

Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians clash in the 15th and 51st league matches of the IPL. Gujarat won the toss and elected to bowl first.

Mumbai innings:

Ishant Kishan 45 (29) and Rohit Sharma 43 (28) were the other openers for the Mumbai Indians. Following this, Suryakumar Yadav (13 (11)) and Tilak Verma (21 (16)) added runs while Tim David (44) added an impressive 44 (21) in the final over as Mumbai were bowled out for 177/6 in 20 overs.

Gujarat innings:

Viruthiman Saha 55 (40) and Shubman King 52 (36) both scored half-centuries as Mumbai chased down the target. Hardik Pandya 24 (14), Sai Sudarshan 14 (11) and David Miller 19 (14) added some runs. When it finally came to the point of needing 9 off 6 balls, Daniel Sams was bowling well and conceding only 3 runs against Devatiya and Rashid Khan.

Three reasons are seen as important for the Mumbai Indians to win the match. Let’s see about that now.

Openers:

Mumbai Indians openers Rohit Sharma and Ishant Kishan both continued to falter, scoring 40+ runs today. If they had lost, the Mumbai team would not have crossed the 150+ mark.

Tim David:

Tim David was not included in many matches. In the last match, he played in action. He is currently against Gujarat and has added 44 runs off 21 balls including 4 sixes, which was the main reason for the score increase. Thus, the Man of the Match award was given.

Last Over:

In the last over, he had to hit 9 off 6 balls. Daniel Sams came in to bowl. With Rahul Devatiya and Rashid Khan also on the field, Gujarat’s chances of victory were considered bright. Unexpectedly, however, Sams bowled well and conceded just 3 runs. This is the most important reason for success.
