Mumbai Indians pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee rocked the Punjab Kings top order in a key game on Wednesday. Chasing 193 to win, Punjab Kings were reduced to 14/4 by the start of the 3rd over of the chase. 

Rilee Rossouw who is making his IPL debut for Punjab Kings got a brilliant Yorker from Jasprit Bumrah. The stumps went for a walk as the Mumbai Indians celebrated a huge wicket for their side. 

Two balls later it was the turn of Sam Curran who was caught down the leg-side by Ishan Kishan. Gerald Coetzee too got into the act first by dismissing Prabhsimran Singh before getting rid of Liam Livingstone for 1. 

Mumbai Indians show their might against Punjab Kings

Put into bat first, Mumbai Indians scored 192/7 from their 20 overs. Suryakumar Yadav led the charge as he scored 78 runs from 53 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes in his knock. The 33-year-old was looking good for a century before his innings was cut short by Sam Curran. 

Rohit Sharma scored 36 runs from 25 balls with 2 fours and 3 sixes but fell to the PBKS skipper. Tilak Varma provided the much needed push towards the end of the innings with an unbeaten 34 off 18 balls with two fours and 2 sixes. 

Harshal Patel was the best bowler for PBKS with 3 wickets for 31 runs from his four overs. The veteran Indian pacer got the big wickets of Hardik Pandya, followed by Tim David and Romario Shepherd to dent the MI batting charge. 

Gerald Coetzee conceded nine runs of the first ball of the game with some wayward bowling. Prabhsimran Singh then was caught well by Ishan Kishan as the young batter got a thin edge while going for a pull shot off the South African pacer. 

The next over from Jasprit Bumrah saw two wickets fall to leave the home fans stunned. Harpreet Singh Bhatia was then sent back to the hut by Shreyas Gopal for 13 as the Karnataka based leggie took a fine return catch to further dent the hosts.
