In the IPL 2023 Eliminator match held in Chennai, the Mumbai Indians emerged victorious against the Lucknow Super Giants. The five-time IPL champions will now face the Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 2 to secure a place in the final. However, Mumbai Indians’ skipper Rohit Sharma had another disappointing performance with the bat, getting dismissed for just 11 runs in the fourth over by Lucknow Super Giants’ pacer Naveen-ul-Haq.
Naveen-ul-Haq’s Celebration After Taking Rohit Sharma’s Wicket
Naveen-ul-Haq’s delivery to Rohit Sharma was a length ball, and the Mumbai Indians’ captain attempted to hit it over extra cover. However, he mistimed the shot, resulting in a catch by Ayush Badoni. After claiming Rohit Sharma’s wicket, Naveen-ul-Haq celebrated by covering his ears, possibly to block out the chants of “Kohli Kohli” from the LSG fans.
Mumbai Indians Set a Competitive Total
Batting first after winning the toss, the Mumbai Indians posted a total of 182/8. Contributions from Cameron Green (41 off 23), Suryakumar Yadav (33 off 20), and Nehal Wadhera (23 off 12) played crucial roles in building their score. However, Lucknow Super Giants’ Akash Madhwal’s exceptional bowling restricted their opponents to just 101 runs, with figures of 5/5 in 3.3 overs.
