Rohit and Ishan Grab Zaheer Khan During Interview

Mumbai Indians (MI) had a spectacular victory against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Saturday in the ongoing IPL 2023 season. In their joy over the win, the MI team, including the players, coaching staff, and owners, took a victory lap around the Wankhede Stadium, waving at the crowd and enjoying the moment.

In a fun-filled moment, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan hijacked Zaheer Khan's interview as part of their post-match celebration. Zaheer, who was previously part of the MI coaching staff, and Parthiv Patel, a former player of the franchise, were analyzing the team's win over KKR on Jio Cinema.

As a group of MI players passed from behind, Rohit and Ishan ran in, hijacked the interview, and took Zaheer with them as part of the celebrations. Parthiv was left alone, talking to the camera as he watched the antics unfold.

Other Moments of Joy

The MI team had extra reasons to celebrate as they donned the jersey from the franchise's winning campaign in the inaugural Women's T20 Challenge amid 19000 young girls present at the stadium. It was a touching tribute to the Harmanpreet Kaur-led team and a proud moment for the franchise.

Apart from the celebrations, the match had a few positives for Mumbai Indians. Suryakumar Yadav, who led the team in Rohit Sharma's absence, made a comeback to form with his impressive knock of 43 off 25. Ishan Kishan laid the perfect platform for the chase with his explosive 25-ball 58.

Highlights of the Match

It was an exciting match for the team, especially since they won their second consecutive game against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by five wickets. The game was played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday (April 16), and MI's batting lineup was exceptional in chasing down KKR's target of 186 runs.

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan set the tone for MI's chase with a solid opening partnership of 65 runs. While Rohit Sharma scored a quickfire 20 runs off 13 balls, it was Ishan Kishan's blistering knock of 58 runs off just 25 balls that put MI in a commanding position.

After the fall of the first wicket, Suryakumar Yadav (43 off 25), Tilak Varma (30 off 25), and Tim David (24* off 13) all played vital roles in the team's successful chase.

Aside from the performance of the team, it was Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun Tendulkar's first-ever IPL game, where he bowled two overs and gave away 17 runs on his debut.

What's Next?

Although Iyer scored a century, it was the Rohit Sharma-led team that sealed the victory by chasing down the 176-run target. The win gave Mumbai Indians two points in the league and extended their winning record against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Overall, MI's win over KKR was a great team effort, and the players' celebratory parade with Zaheer Khan was a fun way to cap off their victory.

With their strong start to the IPL season, MI will be looking to continue their winning ways in the upcoming matches. The team's next match is against the Punjab Kings on April 23, and it will be interesting to see if they can maintain their winning momentum.
