The much-hyped game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians is halfway through. MI, batting first, lost four early wickets, but youngster Tilak Varma came to the rescue for his side, as the 20-year-old smashed 84(46), his highest score in the cash-studded league.
Despite Tilak’s stellar batting from one end, the Indians were 123/7 after 17 overs. It was the last three overs when Tilak and Arshad Khan stitched a 48-run partnership in just 17 balls and smacked Mohammed Siraj and Harshal Patel all over the park.
Siraj, who had an excellent spell in the powerplay, looked like a pale version of himself at the death, as the RCB star bowled the longest over in IPL history when he came to bowl his final over of the day.
Interestingly, Siraj had given just five runs in his three overs. However, when he came to bow his final over, which was the 19th over of the match, Siraj gave away 16 runs, which included five wide deliveries, resulting in an 11-ball over, which is the longest in IPL history.
Notably, Siraj, in search of a wide yorker, bowled four consecutive wides, which is a record in itself and then bowled another one on the 5th ball of his over. Here is how Siraj’s last over fared.
- 1st ball – 0
- 2nd ball – 1
- 3rd ball- Wd
- 4th ball- Wd
- 5th ball- Wd
- 6th ball- Wd
- 7th ball – 2
- 8th ball – 4
- 9th ball- Wd
- 10th ball – 4
- 11th ball- 0
The fans bashed Siraj and Patel for leaking runs in the death, which resulted in Mumbai putting up a winning total in the end.
