Rahul badly pushed Kolkata’s top order to the backfoot with four wickets. The experienced bowling attack from Mumbai was fired in the middle over by the right-handed Cancer.
The Mumbai bowlers bowled the last over overs. The Kolkata batsmen had no answer to such accuracy. The player who played the most important role in Mumbai’s victory was Rahul Chahar. This leg-spinner took four wickets for 27 runs in four overs and became the player of the match.Chahar first took the wicket of Shubman Gill, the batsman who was set on the fifth ball of the 9th over. Gill was set. He scored 33 off 24 balls. In his innings, he hit five fours and a six. After this, Tripathi scored just five runs and was caught by wicketkeeper Di Cock in the next over of Chahar.
At one time, the victory for Kolkata seemed sure, it slipped in the last over so that don’t ask. The Kolkata team had a target of 153 runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday. The team also had a good start. The team’s score was 84 for 1 in 10.2 overs. But the team was able to score 142 runs for seven wickets in the stipulated 20 overs.
In the last two overs, when Kolkata needed 19 runs to win, Jasprit Bumrah used his experience and variety to great extent and did not allow Dinesh Karthik and the dangerous Andre Russell to play openly. Bumrah conceded just four runs in that over. Karthik could not even bat on the last two balls. At the same time, only four runs were scored in the last over of the innings.
