He scored 73 of just 39 balls striking at a rate of 187.18. Unfortunately, he fell for Shivam Mavi but he gave the start Mumbai required. Aditya Tare played the role of an anchor scoring a century and changing gears when required. Shivam Dube 42(28) did the rest of the job but couldn’t finish the game. Nevertheless, it was just a matter of time after he got out as Mumbai easily chased down the score.
