Tim David slams three sixes to give the Mumbai Indians the victory. Gold in Sachin Tendulkar's Response
Tim David became the Mumbai Indians' hero on Sunday as the all-rounder smashed three sixes in the span of three balls to lead his club to an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 triumph over Rajasthan Royals. The ball was sent to Jason Holder with 17 runs still needed from the final over, but things did not go as planned. David hit the first ball for a six straight down to the ground before hitting another maximum through midwicket. The West Indies player was under extreme strain, and the third ball was also lofted over the deep square leg fielder for the decisive six. Cheers broke out from the crowd, and Sachin Tendulkar could be seen grinning.
Yashasvi Jaiswal, a gifted young player, failed to reach her first century (124) as Mumbai Indians defeated Rajasthan Royals by six wickets on Sunday in the Indian Premier League. Tim David hit three consecutive sixes in the penultimate over.
After deciding to bat, the 21-year-old Jaiswal hammered 124 off just 62 balls at a strike rate of 200 to lead the Royals to 212 for 7 by himself. His innings included 16 boundaries and 8 maximums.
With key contributions from Cameron Green (44) and Suryakumar Yadav (55 off 29 balls) in the middle, Mumbai Indians made a comeback. David and Tilak Varma (29 not out) then put an end to the game as the home team completed the goal with three balls remaining.
As MI reached 214 for 4 in 19.3 overs to give captain Rohit Sharma a birthday present, David smashed three consecutive sixes off the first three deliveries of the final over bowled by Jason Holder.
David scored 45 runs off just 14 balls while hitting two fours and five sixes overall. To defeat the Royals, he and Varma put up 62 runs in just 23 balls for the unbeaten fifth wicket.
