New Delhi: KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) handed Mumbai Indians (MI) their sixth defeat in a row in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, on Saturday at Brabourne cricket stadium. Lucknow captain KL Rahul scored a brilliant century against Mumbai as he played an unbeaten inning of 103 runs off 60 balls to help his team post 199 in their allotted 20 overs. In reply, Mumbai could score only 181 runs after losing nine wickets.
Meanwhile, a video went viral on social media in which a clearly frustrated Ishan Kishan (17-ball 13), Mumbai’s 15.25 crore buy in this year’s mega auction, was seen smashing the boundary cushions with the bat after getting out. It is highly likely that he might be fined for this as well.

Always felt Ishan Kishan is a bit overrated… I think Mumbai just wasted (lost)15 crores.. Too inconsistent.. #MIvLSG

Chasing a mammoth 200-run target, Mumbai Indians were off to a poor start. The team needed their out-of-form skipper Rohit Sharma (6) to fire with the bat in tonight’s game but he failed once again. ‘Baby AB’ Dewald Brevis, the 19-year-old batting sensation, yet again delivered and played some great strokes before falling for 31.
Things turned from bad to worse for Mumbai when Stoinis bowled a good length delivery to get rid of Ishan Kishan, leaving the batting side reeling and shocked.
