Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh was present at the Brabourne Stadium to cheer on the Mumbai Indians (MI) in their encounter against the Gujarat Titans (GT). Ranveer is known to be an absolute powerhouse of energy and his passion for Mumbai is simply sensational. He cheered almost every shot that skipper Rohit Sharma played as the latter looked to be at his vintage best.
Even as the game seemed to turn firmly in favour of the Titans towards the end, Ranveer Singh was seen cheering Mumbai and urged other fans to back their team. It was perhaps fitting that the five-time IPL champions lived up to his and other fans’ faith in them as they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in a last-ball thriller.
Fans on Twitter admired Ranveer Singh for being such a passionate fan and hailed him for backing Mumbai till the very end. Here are some of the photos and videos of the star cheering for his team:
MI bowlers step up to seal back-to-back wins
Despite losing their first eight games in a row, Mumbai showed courage to beat the high-flying Rajasthan Royals to get their first points of the season. This would have surely given them confidence going into their next game against the Titans.
MI were asked to bat first and got off to a fantastic start. But they lost their way in the middle-overs and that cost them about 15-20 runs in the end. Although Tim David played yet another fiery cameo, deep down many knew that the total was a bit under par on a great batting surface.
Gujarat got off to a similar start to that of Mumbai and were cruising at the halfway stage. However, the wickets of openers Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha in the same over of Murugan Ashwin brought the five-time IPL champions back in the game.
What was heartening to see from Mumbai’s perspective was that despite their best bowler Jasprit Bumrah having an off-day, others stepped up and kept them in the game. Daniel Sams had the responsibility of bowling the last over and just had nine runs to defend.
But the all-rounder conceded just three and gave Mumbai a thrilling win. Although they are most probably out of playoff contention, Rohit Sharma and his men would be keen to play well for the rest of the season for their loyal fans.
