IPL2022 MI vs DC: Aakash Chopra on MI’s first-game loss to DC.
The Delhi Capitals faced the Mumbai Indians in match two of the Indian Premier League. The Rishabh Pant-led side stunned the five-time champions to win by four wickets. In the same vein, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has chimed in to point out where the MI went wrong in their season opener.
However, Chopra state that giving Daniel Sams the 18th over prove to be a mistake for Rohit Sharma and his team, who conceded a massive 24 runs in the crucial over.
According to the cricket expert, either Jasprit Bumrah or Tymal Mills should have bowled that over, but even MI would have been hurt by Bumrah’s performance in their first game.
MI vs DC: Tymal Mills or Bumrah should have been brought in: Mr. Aakash Chopra
“After Shardul Thakur’s effective cameo, Axar Patel came in and score at a strike rate of 200.” However, there were two to three critical factors to consider because MI made a few mistakes. It was a mistake for Daniel Sams to bowl the 18th over. Tymal Mills or Bumrah should have been brought in. Daniel Sams, I predicted, would bowl the 20th over. In the 18th over, 24 runs were score. “(Jasprit) Bumrah was very expensive, which hurt MI,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
Apart from Patel and Lalit Yadav’s batting display, Kuldeep Yadav bowled brilliantly in DC’s first game. He named player of the match after taking three wickets and conceding only 18 runs in four overs. His performance became a talking point as he overcame the previous two disappointing IPL seasons to shine brightly.
