The stakes were high as the exhilarating clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians progressed into the Super Over, after a dramatic final-ball six from Manish Pandey.
However, amidst the pumped up adrenaline dictating the scenario, Mumbai’s star paceman Jasprit Bumrah emerged as the man of the hour with an exceptional over.
Bumrah enhanced his profile as the world’s most lethal death overs bowler, as he claimed two wickets in 4 balls to leave the Sunrisers reeling in disarray in the Super Over.
Holding his nerve and darting it in the blockhole, the 25-year-old once again showed why he is Mumbai’s most reliable bowler.
In the process, Bumrah’s stupendous spell of bowling has helped Mumbai Indians to become the third team to qualify for the playoffs. The second-ranked Mumbai join Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals.
