A player from Gujarat played a stormy innings in difficult times
New Delhi. The 57th match of IPL 2023 was played between defending champions Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians. Mumbai won this match played at Wankhede Stadium by 27 runs. Batting first in the match, Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai team scored 218 runs losing 5 wickets in 20 overs. In response, Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans lost 8 wickets for 103 runs in 13.2 overs. But, after this, leg-spinner Rashid Khan created such a ruckus with the bat that it seemed that the game would be overturned. But this could not happen. Mumbai finally won the match by 27 runs. But, everyone’s heart was taken away by Rashid.
Chasing the target of 219 runs, Rashid Khan hit 79 runs in just 32 balls. That’s why he did not get anyone’s support from the other end, otherwise the result of the match could have been different. Coming out to bat at number-8, Rashid hit such a rain of fours and sixes at the Wankhede Stadium that everyone was stunned. Rashid hit 10 sixes in his innings, not one or two. His 79 runs is the highest score in the IPL among batsmen batting at number 8 or below. Earlier, Pat Cummins had scored an unbeaten 66 against Chennai Super Kings in 2021 in Mumbai itself.
