Mumbai Indians were unable to clinch their encounter against Punjab Kings on Saturday but Tim David stunned everyone by slamming a massive 114m six off PBKS pacer Nathan Ellis. It was the second biggest six of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 till now with the top spot belonging to Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Faf du Plessis who slammed a 115m six. In the penultimate over of the match, Ellis pitched the ball up to David and the Australian all-rounder was ready to swing at the ball with full force. The contact was just as good as he expected and the ball flew into the top tier of the Wankhede Stadium. MI owner Nita Ambani was left completely stunned by the massive six and her reaction has gone viral on social media. Ambani’s mouth was left wide open in amazement and even the MI support staff could not believe the distance of the six from David.

After a couple of quiet overs, Rohit lofted one straight down the ground for a six off Chahar which started a flurry of runs in the next overs.
The 44-run stand was finally broken by Liam Livingstone as he had Rohit Sharma caught and bowled as MI reached 88/2 at the halfway mark.
Suryakumar Yadav got into the groove quite early as he went on to score boundaries all over the field. He cracked a four off Chahar and then three fours in a row off Livingstone before smacking a six each off Ellis and Curran. Green then took the attacking approach hitting six and a four off Chahar as MI amassed 54 from the 12-15 overs phase.
