On a day when Rohit Sharma went cheap, Hardik Pandya fell for a golden duck, bringing all sorts of trouble to Mumbai Indians in a must-win draw against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Stadium. Ekana cricket, Tuesday April 30.

After KL Rahul wins the toss and asks MI to bat first, the five-time champions started losing wickets in quick succession from the start. Naveen-ul-Haq joined the group later, as he caught the big fish in Hardik just when MI wanted him to steady the ship.

It was a rearing delivery from Naveen, who tried to tempt Hardik for a drive. That's exactly what the MI skipper did, and it cost him dearly. The ball could only get a thick outside edge, and Rahul made no mistake in taking a low and sharp catch with the big gloves.

With the wicket down, Mumbai slipped to 27/4 in just 5.2 overs, leaving the LSG fans erupting in their own backyard.
