Mumbai Indians crashed out of the IPL 2018 after Delhi Daredevils defeated them in their last league game at the Kotla. The defending champions looked out of sorts in their must-win game.
The Rohit Sharma led MI side which has won the tournament in 2013, 2015 and 2017; suffered their eighth loss in 14 matches to exit the cash-rich Twenty20 tournament. Their defeat and the loss suffered by Kings XI Punjab at the hand of CSK let Rajasthan Royals in the playoffs.
Pandya had scored 27 from 16 balls and was looking like taking MI towards the target, but a miscue attempted slog down the ground and lobbed a catch to backward point. This led to the crowd to leave some pretty strong reactions, including one by the MI cheerleader, which has caught the attention of everyone.
Kiwi cricketer Scott Styris described it as the “best moment of the IPL” when she was pictured dropping an F-bomb in response to the dismissal. It shows the desperation of the MI supporters at their elimination.
Here is the viral video of cheerleader:
Chasing 175 for victory, the Mumbai batsmen faltered against the Delhi spinners, and were bowled out for 163 despite a late-order 37-run blitz by Ben Cutting.
