PBKS vs MI 2024 IPL 

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan began Mumbai Indians on a fiery note as the openers slammed some confident boundaries to clear their intent. Punjab Kings pacer Kagiso Rabada provided his team with the first breakthrough as he dismissed the dangerous Ishan Kishan, who displayed good form in his previous few matches. 

Suryakumar Yadav, who made a lackluster comeback in IPL 2024, built a great partnership with Rohit Sharma, with both MI batters punishing Punjab Kings pacers. Suryakumar Yadav finished his half-century soon and Mumbai Indians fans were happy to see India's Mr. 360 degree back in his rhythm. 

Punjab Kings stand-in skipper Sam Curran provided Punjab Kings provided his team with a breakthrough as he clinched the big wicket of Rohit Sharma, who was well on his way to hitting another half-century. 

Suryakumar Yadav then started to build a partnership with Tilak Varma, who was looking dangerous on the field. The duo is batting well on the crease and Mumbai Indians are 140/2 in 14 overs.
