IPL 2022 has been very bad for Mumbai Indians and they are out of the race for the playoffs. But this team defeated Gujarat Titans last night in which Danius Sams did such a thing that Lasith Malinga was remembered.
Mumbai Indians (Mumbai Indians) They won their second win in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League by defeating Gujarat Titans in the match played on Friday night. Gujarat Titans is one of the strongest teams of the current season. It was not easy for Mumbai to defeat him even when the five-time winner is not in his best form. Mumbai had to face eight consecutive defeats this season and due to this, it is not eligible for IPL-2022. (IPL 2022) I am out of the race for the playoffs. But in its last match, this team showed the game of champion team. Left arm fast bowler got him this victory Daniel Sams (Daniel Sams) has. Sams did the same thing that Lasith Malinga did in 2019.
Batting first, Mumbai scored 177 runs for the loss of six wickets. For him, Ishan Kishan scored 45, captain Rohit Sharma scored 43 but Tim David took him past 170. David played an unbeaten 44 off 21 balls and hit four sixes in addition to two fours. Gujarat, which became famous for its finishing skills this season, could not score nine runs in the last over and lost the match by five runs.
Sams did amazing
In the last over, nine runs were needed for Gujarat’s holding. In front of him were two of the best finishers of this season – Rahul Tevitaya and David Miller. Both of them have won many matches for Gujarat in the last overs. Looking at these two nine runs, it seemed like a matter of only two balls, but luck probably had something else in mind. Neither Tewatia’s bat played in front of Sams’s balls nor Miller’s killer batting. Tewatia was run out on the second ball of the over. Then came Rashid Khan, whose snack shots have been discussed but Sams did not allow him to spread his fun too. Miller could not even score runs and Sams gave only three runs in this over and gave Mumbai victory.
Malinka did the same thing
Seeing this performance of Sams, Malinka remembered. Malinga, who played for Mumbai for a long time, did a similar thing in 2019. In front was the team of Chennai Super Kings and the chance was the final match. In the last over, Chennai needed nine runs to win. In front of Malinga were Ravindra Jadeja and Shane Watson. But both of them failed in front of Malinga’s killer bowling and could only make seven runs. Watson was then out on the fourth ball of the over.
