KL Rahul played yet another magnificent knock and scored 94 runs off 60 balls for the losing cause whereas Hardik Pandya contributed significantly with his all-round performance as Mumbai Indians defeated Kings XI Punjab by 3 runs.
Hardik Pandya and Lokesh Rahul are the upcoming core of superstars of Indian Cricket. KXIP and Mumbai Indians faced each other and it ended in a defeat for the KXIP. It was a close encounter and MI just edged it by 3 runs.
But for neutrals, the real moment of the match came after the game had ended. In pure footballing style, Hardik and Lokesh hugged each other and swapped shirts. This sort of gesture is very rare and is highly prevalent in football.
Talking about the jersey-swap, Rahul said they want to bring the culture in cricket as well for upholding the spirit of the game.
Lokesh again exhibited his fine form yesterday with a knock of 94 but it wasn’t enough as KXIP fell prey to Jasprit Bumrah’s fine bowling performance of 3-15. But, their initiative of bringing about a change is worth an applause.
