IPL 2019: No doubt the Pandya brothers put up a show in the last five overs to help Mumbai post a formidable 168/5 in 20 overs. Krunal remained unbeaten on 37* off 26 balls, whereas Hardik scored 32 off merely 15 balls, but Twitter is still upset. They are upset because Pollard did not get to face a ball. Pollard smashed a 31-ball 83* earlier in the tournament showing how brutal he can be on his day. Fans feel Pollard should get to face most balls as he can change the complexion of the game in quick time.
Here is how fans reacted:
Meanwhile, having bowled a disciplined line and length through the innings, the DC bowlers lost the plot in the last five overs as the MI batsmen amassed 64 runs.
While Krunal played the anchor’s role in the 54-run partnership, Hardik once again showed why he is such a dangerous batsman in the death overs as he used the long handle to excellent effect to dig out the low full tosses and attempted yorkers, sending them over the ropes till Kagiso Rabada dismissed him off the third ball of the 20th over.
