New Delhi: The T20 games are very unpredictable. We can never predict the outcome of the matches and it can turnaround in quick succession. Indian Premier League (IPL) has also witnessed many matches which changed very quickly in the past.
Last Night, a dramatic match was played between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. Mumbai Indians defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs. The result was quite surprising as KKR were well on course towards the victory before the sudden fall of wickets.
All KKR fans were disappointed to see the team fall down after dominating the game until the 15th over. In the 15th over, Rahul Chahar took the crucial wicket of Nitish Rana and got MI back in the match. Soon, Shakib Al Hasan, Andre Russell and Pat Cummins failed to control the game and lost their wickets early. Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumarh kept things tight and helped MI to win the match.
Yesterday, Andre Russell picked up his career-best IPL bowling figure of 5/15 which helped his team to restrict MI to 152. But he failed to click with the bat as he was able to score only 20 runs towards the end of the innings. Trent Boult took 2 wickets in the last over, which helped MI to win the match.
After this epic thriller, netizens flooded the Twitter with memes, Virender Sehwag has also shared a meme with caption, “Mumbai to Kolkata in the last 5 overs. Coming back from the dead.”
