In a light-hearted moment during the clash between Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians in the ongoing IPL 2024, Rohit Sharma found himself in a comical situation thanks to Liam Livingstone’s quick thinking. The amusing incident unfolded in the tenth over as Livingstone, the PBKS spinner, prepared to bowl to the former Mumbai Indians captain.

With Rohit Sharma eyeing a switch hit, he positioned himself for the shot even before Livingstone released the ball. However, Livingstone astutely observed Rohit’s intentions and halted his delivery stride, leaving Rohit stranded mid-shot. Initially disappointed, Rohit Sharma and Livingstone couldn’t help but burst into laughter at the unexpected turn of events.

Meanwhile, in the ongoing game, Mumbai Indians stood at 113 for 2 in the 14th over, with Tilak Varma and Suryakumar Yadav at the crease. Earlier, Ishan Kishan’s early departure for 8, courtesy of Kagiso Rabada, put MI on shaky ground.

However, Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav stabilized the innings with an 81-run partnership before Sam Curran dismissed Rohit for 36. Despite his promising start, Rohit would be disappointed not to convert it into a big score, especially after his century in the previous match.

Watch the incident between Rohit Sharma and Liam Livingstone:

Both Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians are eager for a victory to rejuvenate their faltering campaigns. With just two wins from their first six games, both teams find themselves in precarious positions on the points table. PBKS currently occupies the eighth spot, while MI trails closely behind at ninth. Both teams are also coming off defeats in their previous matches, with PBKS losing to Rajasthan Royals and MI falling short against Chennai Super Kings.
