Mumbai’s bad luck

However, he came on the opening but proved to be a flop. Nehal Wadhera opened the innings with him but he also failed. After this, Cameron Green was seen in good rhythm but he too got injured and retired hurt. Tilak Verma played a brilliant inning but could not last. Green came after that but could not do much. In the end there were hopes on Surya but he too got out after scoring 61 runs and the hopes of the team were shattered.
