Mumbai Indians survive Ashutosh Sharma scare to pip Punjab Kings

Ashutosh Sharma gave the Mumbai Indians a major scare with a spectacular innings of 61, but the five-time champions managed to edge out a nine-run victory over the Punjab Kings in the IPL on Thursday. Ashutosh’s explosive 28-ball innings, filled with sixes, brought Punjab from a precarious position close to the finish line, but his dismissal in the 18th over swung the momentum back in Mumbai Indians’ favor.
