Having missed the entirety of the previous season due to injury, Jasprit Bumrah wasted no time in leaving his mark on IPL 2024. Introduced into the attack in the fourth over after Hardik Pandya and Luke Wood opened proceedings for Mumbai Indians, Bumrah faced Gujarat’s openers Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha, who had already built a solid start with 27 runs in the first three overs.

With three dot balls preceding a boundary off Saha’s bat, Jasprit Bumrah’s fifth delivery proved decisive. Employing his signature yorker, the formidable pacer unleashed an angled delivery from wide of the crease. Saha, unable to react swiftly enough, failed to bring his bat down in time, resulting in the ball crashing into his middle stump and sending him back to the pavilion after contributing 19 runs.

 

Prior to this standout moment, Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya won the toss and elected to field, facing a less-than-warm reception from the crowd in his first appearance at the Narendra Modi Stadium since departing Gujarat Titans. The fans’ discontent was palpable, evident in the boos directed at Pandya during the toss.

Although captain Shubman Gill initiated the innings well with 31 runs, he failed to convert the start into a substantial score. Following his dismissal, Sai Sudharsan and Azmatullah Omarzai combined to add 40 runs for the third wicket before the latter fell victim to Gerald Coetzee’s bowling prowess.
