Top 10 funny memes from the latest match
The Mumbai Indians (MI) beat Gujarat Titans (GT) in the 51st match of IPL 2022 on Friday (May 6). It was the second straight win for the five-time IPL champions after they began their campaign with eight losses on the trot.
After being put in to bat first, the Mumbai Indians raced off to 74 in 7.3 overs before Rashid Khan trapped Rohit Sharma (43) LBW in front of the wickets. The MI skipper looked in sublime touch during his stay at the crease and played the role of aggressor in the powerplay.
Ishan Kishan (45) began slowly but made up for it with a flurry of big hits. Alzarri Joseph cut his stay short by sending him to the pavilion in the 12th over. The Gujarat Titans’ bowlers strangled the run flow after that with some tight bowling. Suryakumar Yadav (13), Tilak Varma (21), and Kieron Pollard (4 in 14 balls) departed without any significant contributions in the period.
Tim David (44 in 21 balls) then provided the much-needed finishing touches to the innings and helped MI reach 177/6 after 20 overs. Rashid Khan (2/24) was the stand-out bowler for GT on the day.
In the chase of 178, Wriddhiman Saha (55) and Shubman Gill (52) gave the Titans the perfect launchpad with their 106-run opening partnership in 12.1 overs. While Saha began attacking from the get-go, Shubman Gill took his time before he started to play an aggressive brand of cricket. Murugan Ashwin (2/29) dismissed the duo in the 13th over to give MI a sigh of relief.
The Rohit Sharma-led side then got back into the game with a couple of quiet overs. GT needed 40 runs off the last four overs, with Hardik Pandya and David Miller at the crease.
MI bowled a couple of quiet overs, which meant GT needed 40 runs off the last four overs. Pandya got run out in the 18th over, which meant the onus was on Rahul Tewatia and Miller to finish things off.
MI pacer Daniel Sams then did the unthinkable by successfully defending nine runs in the final over to help his side win their second match in a row. The Australian bowled phenomenally under pressure and gave away only three runs in the 20th over.
