The 42nd match of IPL 2023 was played on Sunday, 30 April. This match was special in many ways. It was the 36th birthday of captain Rohit Sharma, who made Mumbai Indians champions five times. Also it was the 1000th match in the history of the league. In this match, the way Mumbai Indians registered a spectacular victory in the last over, it also became a historical moment. Tim David hit three back to back sixes in the last over to give the team a resounding victory and make this 1000th match memorable forever. Amidst all this, the wicket of captain Rohit Sharma remained a big topic of discussion. Rohit was given a clean bowled out by Sandeep Sharma in the second over of the innings itself.
This clean bold of the captain of Mumbai Indians is not being called clean on social media. There is a lot of ruckus about this wicket of his. Many of its videos and pictures are going viral. The angle seen in the viral video and picture clearly shows that Sandeep Sharma’s ball did not hit the stump. Rather, stump balls are flying from the gloves of Rajasthan’s wicket-keeper captain Sanju Samson. The decision was taken by the umpire after much observation. But after this decision on social media, the anger of the fans is bursting. Earlier in the match between CSK and Punjab, there was a ruckus on a catch by Sheikh Rashid, who was given out, while the boundary rope was seen moving from his leg.
Rohit Sharma unlucky?
The team had to chase a mammoth target of 213 runs and the birthday boy captain Rohit Sharma was present at the crease from whom the fans had high hopes. His form has been under question for some time anyway. In such a situation, he was given out in this way on the last ball of Sandeep Sharma’s first over. He could only score 3 runs in five balls. From what is seen in the video, it is clear that the hitmen have been unlucky. But according to the rules of cricket, the decision of the umpire is final, you could not challenge it. Now there are facilities like DRS. But in the era of Sachin Tendulkar, umpires like Steve Buckner have given him not one but many wrong outs.
Talking about this match, in the first game, Rajasthan Royals scored a huge score of 212 runs. 21-year-old young Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a brilliant century, scoring 124 runs in 62 balls. In response, Mumbai’s start was nothing special. After this Cameron Green scored 44 off 26 balls and Suryakumar Yadav scored 55 off 29 balls to keep the hopes alive. In the end, Tilak Verma remained not out after scoring 29 runs off 21 balls. But Tim David emerged as the biggest hero for Mumbai Indians, who scored 45 runs in 14 balls and gave the team a resounding victory by 6 wickets in 3 balls. He won the team by hitting back to back sixes in the first three balls of Jason Holder’s last over. Mumbai needed 17 runs in the last over.
