Jasprit Bumrah Delivers for Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1
Early in the inning, DC was already struggling as they had lost their top two batsmen without scoring a single. Shikhar Dhawan, who was in smashing form before that game, failed to prolong his stay on the wicket. In the 2nd over of the innings, Jasprit Bumrah bowled a thunderous yorker and Dhawan had no clue on how to defend that delivery. And, he was clean bowled with bails tossing into the air.
The southpaw was left stunned and upset after witnessing such peach of a delivery from the Indian pacer. Jasprit Bumrah was also awarded “Player of The Match” for registering bowling figures 4-1-14-4. Only Aussie all-rounder Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel gave a convincing performance with the bat. The former scored 65 runs before getting bowled off Bumrah and later managed 42 runs for his team.
Although DC lost the game to Mumbai Indians. But, they still hold a chance to reach the finals by defeating the winner of the eliminator. Now, qualifier 2 will be played on November 8 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
