Only two Iranians were needed. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma set a unique record in the history of the IPL by easily scoring those two runs at the start of the match.
He set a record of 5,000 runs in the IPL against Kings XI on Thursday. Entering the elite club, he touched Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina. These are the only two Indians to have set a record before.
After winning the toss, KL Rahul decided to field first. And Mohammad Shamir made this precedent by hitting four in the first ball. However, ‘Hitman’ was also in great form that day.
He played an impeccable innings of 60 runs from 45 balls. D’Cock (60) and Suryakumar Yadav (106) were dismissed for 21 in the first over. After that the team’s run continued with the hero of the last match Ishan Kishan.
In the end, Hitman was out for 124 runs. By then he had three sixes and six fours out of his bat. In the end, Pollard (747) and Hardik (307) batted courtesy of Mumbai’s 190 runs.
However, the dismissal of Rohit by Maxwell was also worth watching.
