Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali, the 46th game of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) featured a riveting contest between the Punjab Kings, led by Shikhar Dhawan, and the five-time champion Mumbai Indians.
While batting first, Punjab amassed a staggering 214 runs for Mumbai to pursue. During the run pursuit, however, the host’s bowling attack, led by Arshdeep Singh, was completely destroyed. The Indian fast bowler surrendered 66 runs while claiming only one wicket.
Former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Deep Dasgupta has opined, in light of Arshdeep’s recent performances, that the 24-year-old is presently in the wrong mindset and that he needs one good spell to regain his rhythm.
“Punjab’s bowling unit has scored heavily in recent contests. I do not believe that enhances their confidence. Someone comparable to Arshdeep, i.e., as talented as he is, who has been extremely dear. “Ignore this game; even in the previous game, he was very expensive,” Deep Dasgupta told Cricbuzz
“As a group, they have failed to perform. “He is not very expressive, but it is clear from his body language that he needs a good spell to put him back in the right frame of mind,” he added.
Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan’s blitzkrieg helps MI overcome PBKS
Mumbai’s pursuit of a target of 215 runs got off to a shaky start when they lost their captain, Rohit Sharma, for a single. In addition, Cameron Green was ineffective at the top of the order. However, the wickets of Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan contributed to the five-time champions’ victory.
Suryakumar scored 66 runs off of 31 deliveries, while Ishan Kishan scored 75 runs off of 41 balls. Their brilliant batting helped Mumbai score 216 runs and win by six wickets.
