The Mumbai Indians made a promising start in the IPL 2024 match against the Kolkata Knight Riders, claiming the wickets of both KKR openers within seven balls. Initially, it seemed like KKR might gain momentum after Phil Salt struck a six off Nuwan Tushara’s first delivery. However, Tushara quickly dismissed him, followed by a crucial breakthrough by Jasprit Bumrah, stunning Sunil Narine with a remarkable delivery that sent the stumps flying.
