WATCH : Birthday Boy Hitman falls cheaply to Mohsin Khan


The Lucknow Super Giants captain, after their recent loss, opted to bowl first in hopes of a strong start. Meanwhile, a buzzing Ekana Stadium awaited as Mumbai Indians’ Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma entered, with fans anticipating birthday fireworks from the Indian skipper.

Their partnership stumbled initially, managing just two runs in the first over. However, Sharma injected life into the atmosphere with a boundary off Mohsin Khan’s second ball in the second over. Yet, his innings was short-lived.

On the third ball of the second over, the 25-year-old quick bowled a full-length delivery to the birthday boy. Sharma, meanwhile, assessed the ball’s line and length well, intending to drive between the cover and point fielders. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find the gap, directing the ball straight to cover fielder Marcus Stoinis, who took an easy catch.

The Indian skipper expressed immediate frustration, regretting the shot as he walked back to the pavilion, unable to make a significant score on his special day.

Twitter erupted in response to Rohit’s dismissal, with fans expressing their disappointment across various social media platforms.
