As the Mumbai Indians came in to their last league game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, it was clear that they had to chase down a score set by the Rajasthan Royals inside 14.3 overs. However, once Mumbai were set 190 to win, it looked a tall task. And, as the match became exciting, the scores were level after 14.3 overs. There was confusion all round.

 

With two needed to win at 14.2 overs, Ambati Rayudu ran for his life and was run-out while completing the second. As Aditya Tare walked out to bat, there was a lot of confusion. There wasn’t a clear idea what was needed. Then, the information came across that Mumbai needed a boundary to overhaul the Rajasthan Royals net run rate. In fact, there was a word that perhaps a wide could have got Rajasthan through. But that too was said to be wrong.

 

The confusion may have prevailed by Tare’s six ended all the confusion in this game. Mumbai have literally pulled a rabbit out of the hat.
