Rising Pune Supergiant played some brilliant cricket as their bowlers scripted a heroic victory over Mumbai Indians. Jaydev Unadkat and Ben Stokes took two wickets apiece as they eclipsed Mumbai Indians' captain Rohit Sharma's majestic innings of 58 runs off 39 balls. Unadkat bowled a brilliant last over as he led his team to victory. With 17 runs to defend in the last over, Unadkat took the crucial wickets of MI captain Rohit Sharma and pinch-hitter Hardik Pandya.
Earlier, Rising Pune Supergiant lost some quick wickets after openers Rahul Tripathi and Ajinkya Rahane provided them with a positive start. Despite having a brilliant opening stand, they were able to score only 160 runs for the loss of six wickets as the Mumbai spinners made a majestic comeback in the match.
Mumbai Indians spinners Karn Sharma and Harbhajan Singh weaved magic with their variations as they sent Pune on the backfoot. Jasprit Bumrah too played his part to perfection as he deceived the Pune batsmen with his slower balls and off cutters.
Karn Sharma, who came in place of the injured Krunal Pandya took two wickets in the match and applied the initial brakes on the Pune innings. Later on, Harbhajan Singh took his 200th T20 wicket and Bumrah grabbed two as the Rising Pune Supergiant couldn't convert their start to a mammoth total.
