In IPL cricket, Mumbai Indians beat Gujarat Titans by 27 runs at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Mumbai Indians managed to reach the 200-run mark with the help of Surya Kumar Yadav’s (SKY) brilliant century (103)

It was another day of batting dominance at the Wankhede, right from the toss, as the Gujarat captain won the toss and elected to bowl first at the Wankhede, preferring to know what to chase. However, the brilliant unorthodoxy of Suryakumar Yadav saw him bring up his first-ever IPL hundred, which lifted the Mumbai Indians to 218-5. A ruthless bowling performance, at least in the initial phase of the total defence, gave them a cushion for Rashid’s pyrotechnics at the end, as they eventually coasted to a comfortable win.

It was a sight to behold. It has been for 16 years, since he first wore the India jersey, but nothing quite matched the lofted six over extra cover off the bowling of Mohammed Shami. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan had gotten the Mumbai Indians to a rollicking start, and this time, Rohit Sharma wasn’t quiet, carting the Gujarat Titans bowlers all around the park. However, it was just a glimpse, because…

The Rashid phenomenon and the recovery… the usual suspect, Rashid Khan got rid of Rohit Sharma off the first ball after the powerplay, and dismissed Ishan Kishan later the very same over. He went on to pick up the wicket of Nehal Wadhera soon, putting the Mumbai Indians in a spot of bother, as Suryakumar Yadav and Vishnu Vinod slowly started to build a partnership. Rashid ended with figures of 4-30 amidst the bloodshed. However, the duo of Vinod and SKY turned over the strike and hit the odd boundary, keeping the run-rate above 10 runs per over for most of the innings, before…

The SKY exhibition… Suryakumar Yadav got to another brisk 32-ball fifty. Vishnu Vinod and Tim David were dismissed at the other end, but SKY had decided to go one better this time – a milestone he has already achieved for the other ‘Indians’ he represents. In a typically graphic massacre of the bowlers, Suryakumar Yadav brought up his second fifty off just 17 deliveries, carting the bowlers to all parts. Batting on 87 at the beginning of the final over, he struck two sixes, including one off the final delivery that took him from 97 to 103, and earning him a milestone that had eluded him so far.

Scores: Mumbai Indians 218-5 in 20 overs (Suryakumar Yadav 103*, Rashid Khan 4-30) beat Gujarat Titans 191-8 in 20 overs (Rashid Khan 79*, David Miller 41, Akash Madhwal 3-31) by 27 runs.
