PBKS vs MI IPL 2021 HIGHLIGHTS, Match 17 CRICKET UPDATES

Hello and welcome to our live cricket coverage of VIVO IPL 2021 match 17 between Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians at the Chepauk Stadium, Chennai. Mumbai Indians’ middle and lower order batting failed once again as the defending champions succumbed to their second successive loss in the IPL 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday. Punjab Kings beat them by nine wickets with 14 balls to spare to register their second win of the season. While MI have struggled with the bat in previous games too but they have managed to put up scores with which they could fight. However, in the last two matches they have failed to get to even 140 which has resulted in losses. On Friday, they were restricted to their lowest total of the season — 131 for six in 20 overs, despite Rohit Sharma getting 63. Rohit Sharma’s 63 off 52 balls was the highest individual score for MI this season and only the second half-century for the franchise after Suryakumar Yadav’s 56 in an earlier game. However, even as Sharma tried to anchor the innings, tight bowling from PBKS bowlers restricted the MI batsmen.

    IPL 2021 Live Cricket Score and Updates: That is a superb run chase from Punjab Kings! Really good from Rahul who was there from start to end for his side. Took the responsibility on himself and has finished the game off. It was all about the start though, the openers got Punjab off to a flier. Agarwal did fall and then there were a few tight overs in between where the run rate kept on increasing. However, some really clever batting from Gayle and Rahul took their side over the line. The Mumbai bowling did not begin in the best of manners, they bowled way too many boundary balls and the first six overs cost them the game. Chahar did brilliantly once again to get his side back but he did not receive a lot of support from the rest.
