Mumbai Indians were up against Gujarat Titans in match number 51 of IPL 2022 as the two teams squared against each other for the very first time in IPL. During the game, an incident involving Rashid Khan left the commentators as well as Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya in splits.
Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans were up against each other in match number 51 of IPL 2022. Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya won the toss and opted to bowl against his former franchise Mumbai Indians. Rohit Sharma was looking in brilliant touch as he smashed the Gujarat bowlers to all parts of the ground and looked set for a big score. However, the MI skipper was dismissed by Rashid Khan for 48 from 28 balls to put the brakes on Mumbai's innings.
However, what caught everyone's eye and left them in splits was a hilarious incident involving Rashid Khan. The incident took place on the second ball of the sixth over when Rashid Khan tried to save a run. Ishan Kishan had struck the ball towards the covers where Rashid Khan was standing. But, the leg-spinner after making a good stop misfielded the ball and ended up throwing the ball wayward which resulted in a couple of extra runs. This left Hardik Pandya and Rashid Khan laughing as the commentators were also in splits after watching this comedy of errors.
