Mumbai Indians’ captain Rohit Sharma handed over the ball to Akash Madhwal to bowl the final over. The right-arm fast bowler made a fantastic comeback in the last over as he conceded only six runs, which was fantastic.

For the unversed, the bowler didn’t bowl well in his first over as he conceded as many as 17 runs. However, he made a rock-solid statement by sticking to his line and length.
