In the Indian Premier League 2020, on Wednesday. Captain Kieron Pollard said after Mumbai’s win against Bangalore. The match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians became the first team to reach the playoffs by defeating Mumbai team RCB.
In that match, Mumbai Indians won the toss and invited RCB to bat first. The Bangalore team, batting first, could only score 164 runs in 6 overs in 20 overs. Initially, the Bangalore team appeared to be heading towards a big target and faltered in the final overs.
Chasing the target of 165 runs, the team of Mumbai Indians won this match with 5 wickets. While batting for Mumbai, Suryakumar played a match-winning innings. He scored 79 not out, facing 43 balls in this innings.
During this time, he hit 10 fours and 3 sixes. After the match ended, Mumbai Indians captain Kieron Pollard said about the performance of the team that I also watch a lot of cricket.
In the middle of this match, I took the bet and bowled AB de Villiers. He said that I was waiting for the last over. But if any bowler gives more runs, then I had to come to bowl. Jasprit Bumrah bowled quite brilliantly in this entire tournament.
But I would like to say once again that we played cricket like a team. Somebody is showing some good games on our team. On this great batting by Suryakumar Yadav, Mumbai captain Kieron Pollard said that imagine that after two quick wickets, any batsman is batting with such a good strike rate.
He (Suryakumar Yadav) is very disappointed inside because of not getting the blue jersey. He said that he is consistently doing very well. But if you consistently do well, then you definitely get its fruit one day.
Pollard talked about his batting and said that there is a lot of discussion about my batting position. He said that I like to go up and play but we always have to do what is good for the team.
Let us tell you that the team of Mumbai won the match and reached the number one position with 16 points. The same Mumbai team has also become the first team to reach the playoffs.
