On Friday, May 12, the 57th game of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2023 featured a matchup between the five-time champion Mumbai Indians and the Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Suryakumar Yadav’s magnificent century enabled Mumbai to post 218 runs for Gujarat to pursue. Despite Rashid Khan’s explosive performance during the second innings, the defending champions were unable to complete the victory. In addition to the performances of Suryakumar Yadav and Rashid Khan, the Indian pacer Akash Madhwal also caused some heads to turn.
In the second innings, Madhwal claimed three wickets while allowing 31 runs while bowling four overs. Madhwal had a significant impact on the game by defeating players like Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha, and David Miller. After the game, the 29-year-old came forward and disclosed the advice given to him by captain Rohit Sharma prior to his spell.
“I have bowled in the dew before, so it was not challenging; we have trained for such conditions. Madhwal said in the post-game presentation, “Rohit instructed me to start with hard-length balls and then focus on accuracy.”

In addition, Madhwal reflected on Suryakumar Yadav’s performance. The 32-year-old batsman scored 103* runs in 49 deliveries to propel Mumbai to a staggering first innings total of 218 runs.
“He consistently does so in the netting as well. We are pleased to be teammates with him. I simply wish to continue developing my abilities. Madhwal stated, “I want to work harder and continue performing well in the upcoming matches.”
After their impressive victory against Gujarat, Mumbai climbed to the third position in the IPL standings. They currently have 14 points from 12 games, and the Rohit Sharma-led squad would like to win their upcoming matches to strengthen their case for making the tournament’s playoffs.
