MI vs PBKS 2023: Wow, PBKS sure has turned things around! They were in trouble at the midway point, but they ended strong by stealing 96 runs in the last five overs. After being sent into bat on what seemed to be a favorable surface, PBKS got off to a bad start as Short was taken out easily by Green without making an impression.
Prabhsimran and Atharva, two promising young players, put up a 47-run partnership and played some attractive strokes, but Arjun Tendulkar took out Prabhsimran with a beautiful yorker. In the 10th over, Chawla dealt further blow to the visitors by removing the dangerous Livingstone and the well-set Taide. Curran and Harpreet Singh started slowly, but as they found their rhythm, they set Wankhede ablaze.
MI vs PBKS 2023: Jitesh Sharma played yet another cameo against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2023
When Arjun was taken away for 31 runs in the 16th over, the game was effectively over. The carnage continued unabated as Green gave up 25 runs in the 18th over. To help PBKS go beyond 200, Jitesh also played a bilnder in the slog overs. The pitch is a belter, and the boundaries are short, so it will be a challenge for MI. Jitesh came out of the locker room and hammered 25 runs off of 7 balls as PBKS comfortably crossed the 200-mark.
Jitesh Sharma has been playing some dangerous cameo in IPL. Below are his figures in IPL.

Sad that selectors always see the total runs not the impact of these runs. Most probably, they'll overlook Jitesh's knocks saying he didn't feature in the top run charts. https://t.co/LHlgSktQpoAdvertisement
