“Sometimes you can just see things coming…..That Pollard dismissal against Rashid seemed inevitable.”

Rashid Khan troubled Kieron Pollard with his leg-spin. After four back-to-back dot balls, the fifth ball that he bowled was a quicker leg break. It was just on the off-side line, which turned a bit and beat Kieron. The right-arm leg-spinner cleaned him up with a dream delivery. Pollard had yet another forgettable day in the middle.

“Kieron Pollard has been honest as well, expressing himself that he hasn’t been able to finish games. But at the same time, when you review properly, those were situations where it’s tough for one person to do the bulk of the work. It’s a team game.”

The Mumbai Indians have finished with a score of 177/6 in their 20 overs. It will be interesting to see if the Mumbai-based franchise can defend the 178-run target and register their second consecutive win in IPL 2022.
