Mumbai Indians star batter Ishan Kishan and spinner Kumar Kartikeya were among the players who wore superhero jumpsuits as punishments. As the team was leaving Mumbai a day after its IPL 2024 match against Rajasthan Royals, the likes of Kishan and Kartikeya were among the four MI players who were punished. It is worth noting that the five-time champions MI punish their players, who are late to team meetings, in this funny way. MI also uploaded a video on social media in which the four players could be seen donning the funny jumpsuits. “Punishment jumpsuits are back,” was the caption of the video.

Watch it here:

Pace bowler Trent Boult returned figures of 3 for 22 to set up a crushing six-wicket victory for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL match against winless Mumbai Indians on Monday.

Boult’s sensational spell of left-arm pace helped restrict hosts Mumbai to 125-9, a total Rajasthan overhauled with 27 balls to spare for their third win of the season in three matches.

Five-time winners Mumbai, who named Hardik Pandya as captain in place of veteran Rohit Sharma, fell to their third loss to stay bottom of the 10-team table.

Pandya had another unforgettable evening after he met with boos at the toss by the home fans, prompting presenter Sanjay Manjrekar to say “behave”.

“Yes, a tough night, we didn’t start the way we wanted to start,” Pandya said after the loss.

Pandya top-scored with 34 for Mumbai but admitted his wicket made them slip.

“I wanted to counter, we were in a decent position to get us around 150-160,” said Pandya. “But my wicket allowed them to get back more into the game, I needed to do a lot more.”

In-form Rajasthan batter Riyan Parag hammered an unbeaten 54 off 39 balls for his second successive fifty as he steered the team to victory with two sixes and a four.

But Rajasthan bowlers ruled with Boult’s lethal opening burst giving way to Yuzvendra Chahal‘s 3 for 11 with his leg-spin.
