IPL 2022: Mumbai Indians stumbled to a 52-run loss against KKR on Monday© BCCI/IPL
Mumbai Indians suffered their ninth loss of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season as they suffered a 52-run defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy on Monday. The batters displayed a disappointing performance as Mumbai Indians failed to chase down KKR’s score of 165. Jasprit Bumrah had taken five wickets for the Rohit Sharma-led side to restrict KKR to 165 but the batters failed to capitalise. However, during KKR’s innings, a funny incident happened and it left everyone including Rohit Sharma in splits.
On the fifth delivery of the 10th over, Kieron Pollard was charging into bowl, but the ball slipped out of his hand, and hit the on-field umpire Chris Gaffaney. After that, both Pollard and Rohit were seen laughing.
