In an exciting cricket match, Corey Anderson helped the Mumbai Indians to gain a victory over the Rajasthan Royals. The game took place in the Wankhede Stadium, a stadium that has seen top cricketers show their best games.
The Mumbai Indians did not look as if they were going to beat the Rajasthan Royals, but Anderson managed to take the Mumbai Indians to a win when he scored 95 not out off 44 balls. The team won by five wickets. Anderson made nine fours and six sixes in the match. While the game was an exciting one, especially towards the end, more exciting for the Mumbai Indians and the team’s fans is that the Mumbai Indians are now in the final four of the Indian Premier League.
Mumbai Indians are the defending champions, and had they not managed to overtake the Rajasthan Royals, they would have been left behind. After the Mumbai Indians had lost its first five matches in the Indian Premier League while playing in the United Arab Emirates, the team had little hope of increasing its fun rate in order to make it through. However, when the Mumbai Indians began to play on Indian soil, the team had a dramatic change in how it was playing, and managed to get seven wins.
With seven wins and seven losses, the Mumbai Indians have made it to the top four teams, and will be meeting the other teams that have topped the league, Kolkata Knight riders, Punjab Kings, and Chennai Super Kings in the playoffs. The final of the Indian Premier League is set for 1st June.
Other players who have shown remarkable performances at the Wankhede Stadium include Mahendra Singth Dhoni’s amazing performance in the World Cup 2011, taking India to victory. In 2012, in the same stadium, Kevin Pietersen took England to a win over India when he made 186, pushing his team into the lead. This popular cricket stadium is sure to see more great cricketing over the years.
