Mukesh Choudhary, the 25-year-old pacer, scripted history in a match against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2022. The pacer dismissed Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan for a duck to put MI on a backfoot.

Mukesh scripted history as he became the first Indian and uncapped player to dismiss the opening batters without troubling the scorers. Overall, it was the third instance when a bowler got rid of the opening batsmen. 

Sohail Tanveer achieved the landmark against Chennai Super Kings in the opening season of the tournament in 2008.

Ryan Harris registered this milestone in 2009 when he got rid of the openers of Deccan Chargers.
