MIvsPBKS 2021 Post-match:-
MIvsPBKS 2021. The Mumbai Indians clashed with the Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League 2021, today evening. The city of dreams stagnated a target of 132 for the cool Punjab Kings who responded very positively to the same. It was all about the start though, the openers got Punjab off to a flier. This was a superb run chase from Punjab.
Mayank Agarwal did fall and then there were a few tight overs in between that kept the run rate on a rise. However, some really clever batting from Gayle and KL Rahul took their side over the line. Earlier in the day, after being inserted, Mumbai was restricted to only 131 despite Rohit scoring a half-ton. Punjab bowlers were exceptional especially Shami and Bishnoi. In reply, their skipper led the way with a half-ton and took them over the line.
The Mumbai bowling did not begin in the best of manners, they bowled way too many boundary balls and the first six overs cost them the game. Chahar did brilliantly once again to get his side back but he did not receive a lot of support from the rest.
Mayank Agarwal on Today’s Match:-
Mayank Agarwal later told that it was nice to get two points on the board. He also mentioned that the discussion with KL Rahul was to keep things simple and play proper cricketing strokes. It seemed that the team wanted to get a good Powerplay and they are glad that they did. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma the Mumbai skipper, says that they did not have enough runs on the board. He also added that it was not a bad wicket to bat on but the application is lacking from their side and if they get 150-160 on this pitch then it is good enough. He also appreciated the Punjab bowlers that they bowled well in the Powerplay.
There are no wonders about guessing the MAN OF THE MATCH which has been definitely awarded to no one other than KL Rahul. The Punjab skipper says that they are trying to give opportunities to many players. About the toss. Rahul mentioned that he had a long chat with the coach about batting second and he wanted his bowlers to bowl early on this wicket.
The above adventure full-filled with thrillers takes on another game in the Indian Premier League 2021 and the action still continues. Punjab Kings have registered another win in the 14 years old season, prompting the Mumbai Indians to come back better in the next game.
