However, Mumbai did not get the wicket of Nitish Rana easily. Actually, Rana wanted to play Bumrah’s bouncer on the third man over the wicketkeeper. He missed it completely. Here Jasprit Bumrah and other members of Mumbai started appealing for out, but the umpire did not agree to it. On this the Mumbai players including Rohit Sharma were in confidence and were surprised, as the sound of the bat hitting the ball was heard.
Cheating caught by DRS
Rohit immediately took DRS. As soon as he decided to DRS, Nitish Rana with cumbersome steps walked towards the dugout. He knew that the ball had taken the edge of the bat. Despite this, he remained standing on the ground. Within no time, everything was caught from Ultra Age. The field umpire had to change his decision. Rana scored 43 runs in 26 balls with the help of 4 sixes and 3 fours.
Such was the thrill of the match
Coming to the match, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) kept their playoff hopes alive by defeating Mumbai Indians by 52 runs in a do or die match. Jasprit Bumrah, one of the best bowlers in the world, proved once again that he is still the best in the world in this match played at the DY Patil ground.
At one point in 14 overs, scoring 136 runs for 3 wickets, he wreaked havoc on the Kolkata team, taking five wickets instead of just ten runs and restricted the opposition team to 165 runs for 9 wickets. This was the first time that Bumrah took five wickets in a T20 cricket match. However, Mumbai could reach only 113 runs.
