Umesh Yadav remained patient and took two wickets in the last over of the match to give Gujarat Titans a spectacular win over Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match on Sunday. With 19 runs needed in the final over, captain Hardik Pandya gave his team the lead by hitting a six and a four on the first two balls. However, he lost his wicket on the third ball and his team missed out by just six runs. It was the first win in the IPL for Gill as a captain and right after the match, Hardik went up to the young batsman and congratulated him with a hug on this momentous occasion.

Mumbai Indians' unimaginative batting tactics in the death overs led Shubman Gill to make an auspicious debut as Gujarat Titans captain with a thrilling six-run win in his opening IPL match.

Jasprit Bumrah (3/14) was at his best in his first IPL game in two years, with his express yorkers to help Mumbai Indians restrict Gujarat Titans to 168/6.

But Bumrah's efforts were not enough as batsmen like Tilak Verma and captain Hardik Pandya failed to match his talent.

MI finished on 162/9 as things turned sour when they needed 43 runs from the last five overs with seven wickets in hand.

Thus MI failed to break their early game dilemma. The last time they won their IPL opener was in 2012 against Chennai Super Kings.

While spinners Rashid Khan (0/23 in 4 overs) and R Sai Kishore (1/24) did little with the ball despite the dew, veteran Mohit Sharma (2/32) showed off his variety with a variety of slower balls. Used. To turn the match around.

Spencer Johnson (2/25) and Umesh Yadav (2/32) bowled brilliantly in the 19th and 20th overs as Hardik Pandya found himself dropped to No. 7 in the batting order, which will require explanation. He definitely hit a six and a four in the last over but Umesh had a laugh in the last over.
