Watch: Kyle Jamieson breaks Krunal Pandya's bat with a deadly yorker
The inaugural match between Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians and Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore has heated the excitement to the fans. Finally, Virat Kohli has won the toss and decided that they will field first.
Rohit Sharma and Chris Lynn opened the innings for Mumbai Indians as Quinton de Kock spending his time in one week quarantine. Rohit Sharma looked very well after taking Yuzvendra Chahal to the long-on for a six.
He dismissed in the same over as the RCB skipper made him run out on 18. Then Suryakumar Yadav and Chris Lynn joined together and added 70 runs for the 2nd wicket partnership.
During the last ball of the 11th over bowled by Kyle Jamieson, Suryakumar Yadav walked back to the pavilion with the numbers 31.
Chris Lynn was unfortunately gone for 49 runs in his debut game for Mumbai Indians since IPL 2020 as he miss-timed the shot which went back to the bowler Washington Sundar.
Deadly yorker by Kyle Jamieson to break Krunal Pandya's bat
The wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya continued the game as both of them have been removed by Harshal Patel in his back to back overs for 28 and 13 runs respectively.
After that, Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya's elder brother Krunal Pandya shared some runs on the crease. The instance took place in the 18th over of the game bowled by Kyle Jamieson to Krunal Pandya.
It was a brilliant slower yorker delivered by the Kiwi pacer which left Krunal Pandya stunned as the willow was down with only the handle in his arm. Everyone was surprised after that moment as the 30-year-old practising helicopter shot with the handle.
