Rising Pune Supergiant set a target of 162 for Mumbai Indians to chase in the second innings of their ongoing IPL match, after a late MS Dhoni onslaught helped them reach a fighting total.
Like Rising Pune Supergiants’ innings, Dhoni seemed to be struggling with accelerating the run rate early in his innings, but he took on Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah in the last two overs to help his side to a 160+ score. Dhoni’s innings will count as vital runs when Pune step on to the field to defend the target, against a formidable Mumbai Indians batting lineup.
