Last day, last show Mumbaikars got what they were waiting for. A bit of rain to ease the sweltering heat and an entertaining Rohit Sharma knock. While rain delayed play for 45 minutes on Friday night, Rohit’s knock of 38-ball 68, which included three huge sixes seemed to enthrall the crowd who’ve had very little to cheer about his season. After the initial blazing knocks, Rohit’s form tapered off though. His 68 on Friday showed what he’s capable of doing and though it was too late, it will hold him in good stead going into the T20 World Cup.

DC vs LSG: Pooran sizzles with switch-hit, Stubbs goes inside out and Jake makes up with runout for scoring a duck

Jake’s bullet throw It was an interesting night for Jake Fraser-McGurk, the big breakthrough Aussie star of IPL 2024. In what could very well be Delhi’s last match of the season, plenty more fireworks were expected from him. But he fell in the first over for a duck, finding the fielder at long-on to be at the receiving end of a well-set field. And on the field, he put down an absolute sitter at deep square leg. The man has a reputation of being a good fielder but that was a jaw-dropping moment on the other side of the spectrum to what we have been used to from him. But a couple of overs later, he’d redeem himself and how. It wasn’t quite Virat Kohli’s prowling, pacy runout. But from deep midwicket, he nailed an absolute bullet of a throw to hit the base of the stumps. Ravi Bishnoi is qu...
