Moments of The Day: Pollard, Bowling the Difference Between the Sides

The IPL is full of surprises and memorable moments. Here are my moments of today:

  • Vijay Shankar‘s fortunes have seen varied highs & lows in his short career. Struggling at Nidahas Trophy final, becoming India’s #4 batsman for the 2019 World Cup, aura around the ‘three-dimensional player,’ and finally in-and-out of IPL sides due to injuries. He is finally coming back to his own—wickets of Rohit Sharma & Suryakumar Yadav halted MI’s march, while his 28 (25) with 2 sixes kept SRH in the hunt. And a lovely catch in the last match as well.
  • Kieron Pollard is probably the greatest T20 finisher of all time, and he showed his worth in the slow Chennai pitch. 35 * (22) with 3 sixes, including a monstrous 105 meter hit. The two sixes off the last two balls might just have been the difference between the two sides, carrying MI from 138 to 150. Oh and handy spell of 2-0-10-0 in a small run chase.
  • Mumbai Indians’ all round bowling display. Trent Boult’s thunderbolts, Bumrah’s miserly figures of 4-0-14-1, and Chahar’s 4-0-19-3 sealed the deal after the Warner-Bairstow partnership. Bumrah’s 17th & 19th overs were crucial, and Boult’s improving death bowling skill is a good sign. If one of Adam Milne, Hardik Pandya, or Marco Jansen comes up, this Mumbai side has all the ingredients for the hat-trick of titles.

Honorable Mentions: Afghan duo, Rashid Khan & Mujeeb-ur-Rahman end up with 8-0-51-2; QDK struggles – 40 (39); Rohit Sharma’s sixes (goes past Dhoni for most sixes by an Indian), Boult’s fielding effort

Broken Cricket Dream of the Day: Hit Wicket & Run-outs

  • Hit Wicket & Run-outs. Bairstow was running away with the game, before he ran too far and hit his stumps on an innocuous Krunal Pandya delivery. 67-0 in 7.1 overs at one stage, this was the catalyst that was needed for the collapse. Not the first SRH hit-wicket either. Warner & Rashid have been hit wicket before as well. In a small chase, a hit wicket is bad enough. How about 2 more run-outs? Brilliant work by Hardik Pandya to get out dependable David Warner & Abdul Samad.
  • Ishan Kishan’s natural game was stalled today courtesy Rashid Khan’s googlies. Ended with 12 (21). With 28 & 1 earlier, he is a due a big innings soon.
