The Wankhede Stadium witnessed a Tim David show as Mumbai Indians scripted one of the best run-chases after they beat Rajasthan Royals by six wickets, as David smashed three consecutive sixes off the first three balls of the final over.
The visitors, batting first, put 212/ 7 on the board courtesy of 124-run innings by 21-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal. The left-hand opener took the internet by storm as he smashed the highest individual score by an uncapped player in the history of IPL.
No other Rajasthan batter scored 20+ runs. In reply, Mumbai Indians got off to a bad start as birthday boy Rohit Sharma got out early. Suryakumar Yadav was back among runs as he scored a half-century. The star of the game was Tim David, who amassed an unbeaten 45(14).
Several cricketers took to social media platforms to hail Mumbai Indians run-chase and wrote highly for Tim David and Yashasvi Jaiswal. Here are some of the reactions.
MI will next face Punjab Kings on May 3, while RR will square off against GT on May 5.
