Mumbai Indians produced a stellar effort chase down a 200-run target against Royal Challengers Bangalore in just 16.3 overs in an IPL 2023 match on Tuesday. After Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell scored a half-century each to take RCB to 199/6, MI were boosted by fifties from Suryakumar Yadav and Nehal Wadhera to reach the target with ease. Just like the roller-coaster nature of the match, those watching the game too had an array of emotions. It was best summed up by Anushka Sharma, actor and RCB star Virat Kohli’s wife. Towards the end of RCB’s innings, Karthik played a crucial role with a cameo. However, he was dropped by Cameron Green, when he was on 14.
It left MI skipper Rohit Sharma disappointed and Anushka Sharma rejoicing.
