Rohit Sharma's typically stylish 85* (60 balls, 8x4, 3x6) ensured that Rising Pune💪Supergiants' torrid time in the IPL continued as Mumbai🔷 completed an emphatic 8 wicket victory. Mumbai opted to field and McClenaghan inflicted👍 early damage on the Supergiants by removing Rahane. But Saurabh Tiwary was joined by Steven Smith who proceeded to tonk the bowlers all over the place🙌. The duo put on 84 runs in just 45 balls as the score threatened to hit 200💨. But Jasprit Bumrah had Smith caught behind and that checked the flow of runs✋. Harbhajan, McClenaghan and Bumrah then proceeded to reign in Pune brilliantly👏. None of the Pune batsmen who followed could accelerate as they ended up with just 159/5😞.
Mumbai started their chase at break-neck speed🚈. Rohit was spectacular as usual while Parthiv did his bit before falling to Dinda. Ambati Rayudu then gave his captain company👌 as Mumbai kept abreast of the required run-rate. With Rohit anchoring⚓ the innings brilliantly, the result of the chase was never in doubt. Buttler also played a quick hand💥 which will boost his confidence. Deservedly, Rohit finished the innings with a 6⃣, leaving Dhoni to ponder over his team's dismal form🤔.
