Mumbai Indians (MI) continued their losing streak in the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 with a defeat of Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday. MI, who chased PBKS’ total of 198, fell short by 12 runs in the IPL 2022 match played at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Adding to the team’s vows of the season were the two runouts of Tilak Varma and Keiron Pollard.
In MI's fifth consecutive defeat in the tournament, the team suffered two major runouts due to mix-ups between the batters on the pitch.
First, Tilak Varma threw away his wicket following a miscommunication with Suryakumar Yadav, following which Keiron Pollard got out in a similar situation. In the 17th over, Yadav faced a major disappointment, causing a horrible mix-up with Pollard after he hit the first ball of the over to long-on.
