IPL 2017: Twitter Reacts As Mumbai Indians Restrict Rising Pune Supergiant To Low Total

After being on the receiving end of a fine batting display from Rising Pune Supergiant’s openers-Ajinkya Rahane and Rahul Tripathi, Mumbai Indians made a brilliant comeback to restrict the Pune-based outfit to 160 for six in the allotted 20 overs.

After being invited to bat first, Rahane and Tripathi gave the visitors a flying start by adding 76 runs in 57 balls. However, their innings totally derailed once Rahane was dismissed by Karn Sharma for 38.

17 runs later, Karn Sharma removed Tripathi too for 45 before Harbhajan Singh picked up the prized scalp of Steve Smith.

A 22-run stand between Ben Stokes and MS Dhoni steadied the ship but just when everyone was hoping to see some fireworks from the duo, Stokes was sent back by Mitchell Johnson. Dhoni, who had scored a match-winning 61 in the last game, also failed with the bat, scoring just seven runs off 11 balls.

Steve Smith’s men were looking well set to post a below par total before Manoj Tiwary played a quickfire knock of 22 runs from just 13 balls to guide his team to a respectable total.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the innings:
