Mumbai, April 6: Mumbai Indians continue to lose in IPL 2022. After Delhi and Rajasthan, now KKR has also beaten Mumbai (KKR vs MI). The reason for Mumbai’s defeat in these three matches is the embarrassing performance of Daniel Sams. Against KKR, Sams gave up 35 runs in a single over, which led to their victory in 16 overs. KKR’s score was 127/5 after 15 overs, but Daniel Sams gave up 35 runs in a single over and Kolkata won with 24 balls to spare. Rohit gave the ball to Sams to bowl the 16th over. Cummins then hit a six off the first ball, followed by a second four, a third six and a fourth. The next ball of the over was bowled by Sams with no ball on which Cummins took two runs. The fifth ball of the over was a free hit, which Cummins hit four again. Cummins ended the match with a six off Sam’s last ball. Cummins hit 4 sixes and 2 fours in Sam’s over.
Bad shot against RajasthanIn the match against Rajasthan, Mumbai Indians were in a position to win, but on the first ball of the dangerous Yuzvendra Chahal bowling, Sams tried to hit a big shot, in which he was out. Sam returned with a zero off one ball. Leaving Chahal’s over on the pitch to help the spinner, Sams attacked the first ball without setting it on him, which hit Mumbai.
24 runs against DelhiThe match against Delhi was also in the hands of Mumbai Indians, but Lalit Yadav and Akshar Patel scored 24 runs in Daniel Sam’s over. Delhi needed 28 runs in the last 3 overs to win, but Sams’s 24 runs in a single over made Mumbai’s victory easier. Given Daniel Sam’s performance in all three matches, he is now unlikely to get a chance from Mumbai in the remaining matches of the IPL. Daniel Sam’s base price in the IPL auction was Rs 1 crore, but Mumbai bought him for Rs 2.60 crore. There was competition between Mumbai and Lucknow to buy Sam.
