Mumbai Indians defeated Gujarat Titans by 5 runs at the Brabourne Stadium on Friday. Chasing 178, Gujarat Titans were 106 for 1 at one stage but then they lost their way down the order as MI, five-time IPL champions, bounced back sensationally to seal the victory.
Tim David, Player of the Match, said, ‘ Given the context, us winning the game, it feels great. It was a good batting wicket, I missed out on a few scoring opportunities in the last over. Shows how well our bowlers bowled in the second half to get us over the line. The wicket was slightly two-paced, it’s about starting your innings, if you get off to a flier then you just run with it.
It’s great to be on the winning side. It’s tough when you are sitting off the field, especially watching your team-mates not get the result. Try as hard as you can in the nets and be ready when the opportunity comes.’
