1.6 Bumrah to Sam Curran, Out appeal by Kishan. A late one. But Bumrah is quite confident. Or is it about the ball rubbing something? Given wide and Mumbai has reviewed.

And he was the only person who was sure about Nick. One lead and Mumbai have troubled the Kings

He goes for the pull but ends up returning to the bowler from the cue end. 150 km per hour
