Mohsin Khan, on Tuesday (April 30), castled Nehal Wadhera with a beauty to deny him his first fifty of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024).

Lucknow Super Giants welcomed Mumbai Indians in the 48th game of the ongoing competition. LSG skipper KL Rahul won the toss and opted to bowl first. His decision was totally justified by his bowlers as they reduced MI to 27 for 4 in the sixth over.

Mohsin Khan gave LSG the first breakthrough by dismissing Rohit Sharma for 4 before Marcus Stoinis dismissed Suryakumar Yadav for 10. Tilak Varma was run out for 7 while Hardik Pandya was sent back by Naveen-ul-Haq for a duck in the final over of the powerplay.

As a result, Nehal Wadhera had to walk out to bat in the sixth over. The youngster and Ishan Kishan managed to stop the rot with a 53-run stand for the fifth wicket. Ravi Bishnoi broke the stand by dismissing Kishan for 32 in the  14th over.

Nehal Wadhera and Tim David then took the MI score past the 100-run mark. With the southpaw well set, it looked like he would finally accelerate in the death overs. However, before he could finish the innings strongly for MI, Mohsin Khan sent him back on the first ball of the 18th over.

It was a stunning yorker from the left-arm pacer that completely bamboozled Nehal Wadhera. The MI batsman cleared his front leg to play a big shot but failed to bring his bat down in time and the ball went on to crash into the stump. The left-hander returned to the pavilion after scoring 46 runs off 41 balls with the help of four fours and six sixes.

Watch as Mohsin Khan dismisses Nehal Wadhera:

Talking about the MI innings, the five-time champions finished their innings on a modest 144 for 7.  After Wadhera's departure, an unbeaten knock of 35 runs from David helped MI finish with a 140-plus total.
