1- The first reason for Punjab to lose is to win the toss and decide to bowl first. It is seen from the previous matches that the team that wins the toss decides to bowl first but loses the match. In this match, Rahul did the same thing and lost half the match with the decision to bowl first. And the teams batting first in the UAE have a lot of advantages. This is the first biggest reason for winning matches in Mumbai and losing matches in Punjab.
2- The second biggest reason is Rohit Sharma’s great batting. Rohit Sharma first stayed on that ground and then understood the pitch. He then took an aggressive stance and scored fast runs to help his team reach a good score. This is also the biggest reason for Mumbai to win the match.
3- The third biggest reason for Punjab losing the match was the early dismissal of Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. The pair of Mayank and Rahul were performing awesome in the last few matches. But the middle order could not do anything special after both were dismissed in this match. Rahul faced 19 balls in his innings and scored just 17 runs. While Agarwal scored 25 runs, only Nicolas Puran could stand on the field after that. But that was not enough for his victory.
4- The fourth-biggest reason for Punjab to lose is to loot more runs in the last over. The Mumbai team had scored just 102 runs in the first 15 overs. But after that, the insect’s Pollard and Hardik Pandya attacked their bowlers and got runs fast. Same Punjab conceded 25 runs in the last over as well, taking Mumbai’s score to 191 runs.
5- The fifth reason for Punjab losing and Mumbai winning is Mumbai’s superb bowling. The bowlers of Mumbai Indians kept taking wickets continuously from Punjab. No Punjab player was given a chance to stay longer. Punjab batsmen were also not stopping and batting, chasing scores like Pahar, the Punjab team bowed down and lost the match, this is also a big reason.
