It was a disappointing night for Mumbai Indians who have suffered roadblocks in the TATA IPL 2022, so far, but the heroic performance by Pat Cummins surely stunned the fans. Daniel Sams suffered a drawback when he was scored for nearly 35 runs in an over by Pat Cummins to set one record after another. Pat Cummins scored the fastest fifty in the IPL while Daniel Sams became a victim of the most expensive over of the season.
“Never expected him to come and play like that [on Cummins]. Lots of credit. The pitch got better and better to bat as the game went on. It was holding up initially. Overall it was a good pitch. With the bat, we did not start well, in the last 4-5 overs to get 70+ was a great effort from the batting unit. We did not bowl according to the plan. We had the game till the 15th over, but then Cummins was brilliant. Whenever you have runs on the board, we always have the upper hand, We had them 5-down, it was just a matter of the wicket of Venky or Pat, they had Sunil who could smash them. This will be hard to digest, the way it turned out in the last few overs. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us. I don’t want to be in this position all the time,” said Rohit Sharma after losing the match.
