WATCH : Faf du Plessis coping up a low blow with cross-batted shot


In their debut match against each other this IPL season, Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya won the toss and chose to field.

Early dismissals of Virat Kohli by Jasprit Bumrah and Will Jacks put the visiting team under pressure within the powerplay. The tension peaked when Akash Madhwal’s delivery struck Faf squarely in the groin, causing a pause in the game.

During the sixth over, Madhwal unleashed a short delivery outside off stump, tempting Faf to make room and swing. However, the ball skidded off the pitch, catching Faf off guard, resulting in an unfortunate inside edge to his groin.

This led to Faf bending down in agony, delaying his readiness for the next delivery, sparking a frenzy on Twitter. Truly a king in the game!

MI completely dominated RCB at the Wankhede today. They effortlessly chased down a target of 197 in just 15.3 overs, courtesy of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav’s spectacular fifties, making a mockery of the contest.

Despite Dinesh Karthik’s impressive performance towards the end of RCB’s innings, guiding them to 196, MI’s response was sheer annihilation. Kishan led the charge during the powerplay, followed by Suryakumar Yadav’s remarkable display, achieving his fastest IPL fifty in just 17 balls.
