Mumbai Indians’ (MI) Jasprit Bumrah and Ishan Kishan joined in dismissing Delhi Capitals (DC) opening batter Prithvi Shaw amazingly in TATA IPL 2022 on Saturday.

It occurred in the final over of the powerplay in the first innings. Bumrah set Shaw up with 3-good-length balls outside the off-stump; look at the right-handed youngster’s patience.

The 4th ball was a shock, complete effort bouncer, always rising and always coming in, giving Shaw no possibility to get out of the way.

The 22-year-old gloved it in the face of the helmet, and the ball swelled in the air. Kishan scampered forward with the gloves and put in a fully-timed dive to grab it with equal hands.

Previously, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma got the toss and opted to bowl primary on the lively-looking Wankhede pitch. Bumrah and Sams took just 3.2 overs to eliminate the in-form top-order batters, David Warner, as well as Mitchell Marsh.

This was Shaw’s primary match since returning from infirmity. His short stay at the crease looked good, hitting 2-fours and a six, but Mumbai’s pace forefront had other plans. The wicket decreased the Capitals to 31-3 in just 5.4 overs.

A couple of calm overs followed, but leg-spinner Mayank Markande then got Sarfaraz Khan to edge a leg-break to Kishan, bringing the run to 50/4 in 8.4 overs.


Rishabh Pant is the final prickle in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s expectations after Jasprit Bumrah’s special wicket.

Such a bright start would be a bittersweet sight for Mumbai Indians fans who would have desired it to happen before the tournament.

But for the Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), whose wish to reach the top-4 depends on the Capitals’ defeat, it couldn’t get any better.

It all now depends on captain Rishabh Pant, who has a great record against Mumbai, and Rovman Powell to take the Capitals to a decent total.
