The Mumbai Indians team made a terrific comeback in Match 5 of the Indian Premier League 2021 beating Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs. In the first innings, they were all-out for 152 and could not finish well in the death overs. The KKR bowler Andre Russell picked 5 wickets to contain them in the last few overs. The main contributors of the team were Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav. While other batsmen failed to contribute enough for the team. But the team won the match in a terrific manner.
The Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma always finds a way to contribute to the team, whether it is in the batting department or leadership skills. This time, he tried his innovative technique to put pressure on the batsmen and take crucial wickets of the KKR team. While bowling in the 14th over of the 2nd innings, Rohit Sharma twisted his ankle at the time of delivering the ball. He then stops and sits on the ground and the medical staff arrives for the treatment. Alongside him, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya can be seen laughing at the incident.
