IND vs SL

Fast bowler Shivam Mavi bowled deadly in his T20 debut against Sri Lanka at Wankhede. He took four wickets for 22 runs in four overs. The cricketer was also seen getting emotional after this dream debut. He said that for the last six years he was waiting for this moment.

Apart from Mavi, Umran Malik and Harshal Patel took two wickets each. India had scored 162 runs, in response to which Sri Lanka’s team could only score 160 runs. The young pacer is being applauded not only by cricket fans but also several former and current players also haild his T20 debut.

During the post match presentation Mavi said that the landing zone was a bit slippery but he had to perform good as he was waiting for this moment for six years after playing the U-19 World Cup. “I have worked hard in those six years. Got hurt too. For a while it seemed like my dream would remain a dream, but I held on to it. After playing IPL, the nervousness has reduced a bit,” said Shivam Mavi on his dream T20 debut.

Mavi further added that he was in control during the match and was not nervous, because if a cricketer has played IPL then he knows what is his role. “The first wicket was my favourite,” said the pacer.

The 24-year-old Mavi first grabbed attention during the 2018 Under-19 World Cup. The fast bowler formed a lethal partnership with Kamlesh Nagarkoti in that tournament and helped Team India in becoming the champion. Shivam Mavi was later bought by Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL the same year after a stellar performance in the Under-19 World Cup.

However, the road ahead was not an easy one as injury took a toll on his career. He went through a long rehab and slowly made a comeback. In the IPL 2023 auction, Mavi was bought by Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans for Rs 6 crore. After his stellar performance, has also become the costliest uncapped player of the IPL 2023 auction.

Rajasthan Royals pulled off Indian Premier League’s biggest run chase to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by two wickets on Tuesday. KKR were asked to bat first and rode on Sunil Narine’s 56-ball 109 to take their team to a respectable total of 223/6 in 20 overs. In response, RR were in trouble at one stage of the match but Jos Buttler helped the team recover with an unbeaten 60-ball 107, as the visitors completed the run chase in the last delivery of the match.

The England captain began the last over hitting a six off the first ball, he then had to turn down runs off the next 4 balls, thus bringing the equation down to Rajasthan Royals needing 3 runs to win off the last 2 balls. Buttler then hobbled 2 runs off the 2nd last ball of the match and took a single off the last delivery and thus took RR to a record-equalling run chase.

Earlier the Kolkata Knight Riders were asked to bat first on a fresh pitch, Narine blasted a 49-ball 100 to lead KKR’s innings in this match at Eden Gardens. It was a one-man show from KKR as Narine (109 off 56) took his team till the 18th over, forging a 85 run partnership with Angkrish Raghuvanshi (30) and then adding 51 runs along with Andre Russell (13). KKR reached a score of 223/6 in 20 overs batting first.

KKR’s bowling attack could not go unnoticed as the likes of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine both shone to help keep the home side in the fight, but the effort seemed to be in vain. It was merely a case of who wanted to win more on the match day. And Buttler showed that he wanted it the most, as he led Rajasthan Royals to a historic run-chase, the biggest successful run-chase in the history of the IPL.
