MI earlier won the toss and chose to bowl first. Pandya chose to start the MI attack himself and his first over ended up going for 11 runs. Surprisingly, he ended up coming back for the third over instead of handing the ball to Bumrah after Luke Wood bowled the second and conceded nine. Bumrah then came in and got the first wicket for MI in the form of Wriddhiman Saha with his trademark yorker. (ANI) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout
