During the match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Capitals (DC), talismanic pacer Jasprit Bumrah bowled an inch-perfect yorker to dismiss Prithvi Shaw. Bumrah bowled an incredible spell, claiming two wickets and gave away just 22 runs in his quota of four overs as Mumbai Indians registered an emphatic 29-run win to open their account on the IPL 2024 points table.

Shaw looked in sublime touch with a confident innings of 66 runs, leading his team's resurgence in a towering chase of 235. Upon reaching his half-century, Shaw tried to accelerate the scoring but Bumrah intervened and altered the script.

The incident happened on the fifth ball of the 12th over as Shaw was batting in full flow and Bumrah unleashed his best weapon - a toe-crushing yorker. The DC opener had no answer for the delivery as it rattled his leg stump.

Meanwhile, Abishek Porel was Bumrah's second victim and with his scalp, Bumrah completed the milestone of 150 IPL wickets and became the third fastest to achieve the feat.

MI register first win of IPL 2024

Speaking about the match, MI posted their highest-ever total at the Wankhede - 234 for 5 as Romario Shepherd slammed a staggering 32 runs in the MI's final over.

Despite the efforts, the required run rate continued to increase, leading to their team's defeat by 29 runs.
