IPL 2024 PBKS vs MI Highlights: The Mumbai Indians initially dominated the game, setting a formidable target of 192/7 while batting first. However, they quickly turned the heat on Punjab Kings in the first 10 overs of the latter’s innings. With Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee wreaking havoc, PBKS lost their top five batsmen. Despite this setback, Shashank Singh initiated a spirited fightback for Punjab. Ashutosh Sharma’s remarkable performance, coupled with some unconventional tactics from MI, saw the Kings making a remarkable resurgence, despite being seven wickets down. However, Ashutosh’s departure after a brilliant 61 off 28 deliveries left PBKS in a tight spot. With 12 runs needed off the final over and just one wicket in hand, the match hung in the balance. A crucial run-out on the second ball of the over sealed the fate, with MI clinching victory by nine runs.

Earlier, Suryakumar Yadav showcased his prowess with a splendid 78 off 53 balls for Mumbai Indians. His partnership with Rohit Sharma, who scored 36 off 25, laid a solid foundation with an 81-run stand in just 57 balls. Additionally, a brisk 49-run partnership with Tilak Varma, who remained unbeaten on 34 off 18, further bolstered MI’s innings. Sam Curran led Punjab Kings in the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, captaining the side admirably.
