After a few low-scoring encounters, it was a return to a high-scoring fixture in IPL 2023 again. More than 400 runs were scored as Mumbai Indians chased 215 runs against Punjab Kings. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Mumbai Indians chase 215 runs against Punjab Kings on Wednesday.
Mumbai Indians chase 215 runs against PBKS
Mumbai Indians have been chasing high scores well in recent games. At Mohali on Wednesday, as well, it was another successful day at the office for the five-time champions. MI did not have a great outing with the ball and hence, they were given a stiff target of 215 to chase. However, despite the early loss of Rohit Sharma‘s wicket and a tentative start in the powerplay, nothing was able to dent the chase for the visitors. While Ishan Kishan hit form, SKY was at his usual best as the PBKS bowlers had no answers for the onslaught.
Meanwhile, PBKS must review their bowling performance soon. Against LSG, they gave 257 runs and it was a horrible show for them. It was a similar performance against MI, as well. The team has a solid pace attack comprising Arshdeep Singh, Sam Curran and Kagiso Rabada. The spin attack is also good on paper. However, they are not often firing together in the game. Going forward, if PBKS must do well in the tournament, they would want their bowlers to step up.
Twitter reacts to the brilliant chase by MI
In the last game, Arshdeep Singh was terrific in the last over to deny a successful chase for MI. However, this time around, MI did not let the game go until then. They had an amazing spell with the bat in the middle overs and this was enough for them to win the game. Here is a look at how Twitter reacted to the same:

This #MI batting lineup is ridiculous even without Rohit out of form. Don't forget Brevis and Stubs are still on bench.Advertisement
Get bowling lineup together. Find someone somehow somewhere in squad.#MIvsPBKS
