Mumbai Indians suffered an Ashutosh Sharma scare but held their nerves to beat Punjab Kings by nine runs. PBKS were reeling at 111-7 in a tall chase of 193 and the win for MI looked a mere formality, however, Ashutosh turned the game on his head, scoring 61 in 28 balls to put MI under pressure. The PBKS batter though fell in the 18th over and MI escaped a defeat.
For MI, Jasprit Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers as he bowled a sensational spell of 3-21 to play a significant role in MI's defense. He got good support from Geralad Coetzee who bagged a three-wicket haul for 32 runs. Bumrah was named the Player of the Match for his stunning show.
Bumrah also bagged the Purple Cap as he topped the charts of most wickets in IPL 2024. With 13 wickets in seven games at an incredible economy of less than six, Bumrah has once again proved that there is no one anywhere close to him when it comes to the best pacer in the tournament.

Jasprit Bumrah Creates History

Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah created history as he joined Umesh Yadav at the top of the charts of most Player of the Match awards by pacers in IPL history. Both Bumrah and Yadav have 10 POTM awards to their names. AB de Villiers has won the most Player of the Match awards in IPL, with 25 POTM awards to his name.

MI Revive IPL Campaign

Meanwhile, the win over Punjab Kings was MI's third this season and it helped the Hardik Pandya-led side move up to seventh on the points table. MI have not looked their best so far. They suffered a defeat in the first three games before winning two games to DC and RCB at home. The team then lost to CSK before beating PBKS.
Bumrah said that T20 cricket is not an easy format for the bowlers, adding that he always tries to help other bowlers whenever possible.
"This was a close game. Much closer than what we thought it would go. Of course you want to make an impact when the ball does something. In this format the ball swings two overs. When I want to bowl more, I play Test cricket. That fulfills my desires. This format is a little difficult for bowlers, with time restrictions and impact player rules. Batting lineup becomes deeper and deeper. But that's not in your control. I do relay the message to the bowlers whenever I can. But you also don't want to deliver too many messages in the heat of the moment," said Bumrah after the match.
