MI vs PBKS Highlights IPL 2021

Mace-man falls like a log

Back in the day, being the tallest and heaviest on the junior circuit, Saurabh Tiwary was known as Bhim in the dressing room. Size wasn't the only inspiration for the nickname, Bhim's valour in epic battles was also a factor. It was his unbeaten game-changing knock in the under-19 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand that took India in the final, which they went on to win. Those were the days of Dhoni Mania, and Tiwary, the Jamshedpur born big-hitting batsman with straight hair, had no option. He had to be the Next Dhoni. But even  Dhoni lookalike toughie Bhims are vulnerable. So when bowler Arshdeep Singh's throw, intended for the stump, hits Tiwary's box, the batsman falls like a log. It's a situation that triggers sympathy and smiles. Even Tiwary seemed amused while he winced in pain. After a long medical break, Bhim got up to hit the next ball for a four. His 45 from 37 balls showed that once in a while Bhim does a Dhoni.

Mumbai victorious

Shami to bowl the 19th over. Another 4. Hardik on fire. 4 again in the 5th ball. What an over this was. A 6 to end the over. And he wins it. MI win by 6 wickets.

The agape Saffers

Because it was two South Africans with jaws wide agape, you could believe it was the usual 'cricketing souls leaving the body' at the latest catastrophe that strikes players from that part of the world. Except, it was only a pair of shocked jaws from both. Ravi Bishnoi's last delivery was full and outside off and saw Quinton de Kock open his mouth for a gasp-ful of air before lofting it on a nice pivot. Aiden Markram in the outfield saw the skier dipping down to his right faster that he liked, and dived desperately for what would've been a sensational catch. Instead it was a dreadfully unlucky drop as Markram scampered a good distance for the ball to graze his outstretched fingers and plop out, tumbling away to a four. All through this slowly playing out punishment Markram had his heart in his open mouth. They say it's a quick burst of extra oxygen to help deal with startling events, but Markram's visage opened like a crab-cracker chasing the slippery catch. Meanwhile the bowler, the unfortunate Bishnoi who snares batters with his crab-limbed run-up, and has been taking catches with an un-creased unfazed face, stayed assiduously zip-lipped, not betraying his disappointment at the dropped catch.
