MI script T20 history with unique record, smash highest-ever total without individual half-century

Apr 07, 2024 07:13 PM IST

It was Tim David's 42-run* knock and an explosive 39-run cameo off 10 balls by Romario Shepherd that gave the final push to MI innings.

Mumbai Indians batters finally put up a collective show with the bat and managed to script history against Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. The five-time champions posted a mammoth 234/5 in 20 overs after DC skipper Rishabh Pant asked them to bat first. It was a sensational performance from MI as four of their batters registered 180-plus strike rates.

It started with a flying start from Rohit Sharma (49) and Ishan Kishan (42) as the duo shared an 80-run stand for the opening wicket. Skipper Hardik Pandya provided the stability in the middle-order with a 39-run knock. However, it was Tim David's 42-run* knock and an explosive 39-run cameo off 10 balls by Romario Shepherd that gave the final push to MI innings.
