Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma was outdone by the pace of Royal Challengers Bangalore bowler, Umesh Yadav in the ongoing IPL game at Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Having won the toss, Rohit Sharma decided to bowl first. The Mumbai bowlers were decent in keeping the openers silent. Quinton de Kock could not get a move on and got dismissed in the powerplay overs. Manan Vohra was quite effective in countering Mumbai attack.
Brendon McCullum and Virat Kohli were quite impressive in the middle overs. But the run out of McCullum brought Mumbai back into the game. Hardik Pandya was the star of their bowling when he removed Virat Kohli, Mandeep Singh and Washington Sundar in the same over.
Asked to chase a par 168, Mumbai Indians top order crumbled. Southee removed Ishan Kishan in the very first over of the innings. But Umesh Yadav once again starred inside the powerplay for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The pacer caught Surya Kumar Yadav on the pads on the very first ball of the fourth over. However, he put Royal Challengers in the driver’s seat when he removed Rohit Sharma on his next ball. The Mumbai skipper was beaten by the raw pace of Umesh Yadav, as the ball fizzled past his bat.
The on-field umpire did not declare Rohit as out. But, Quinton de Kock confidently asked Virat Kohli to go for a review. The replays suggested Rohit Sharma got a fine inside edge on his bat which comfortably carried to de Kock.
Here is the dismissal of Rohit Sharma
