IPL 2021 Full list of records: With Mumbai Indians posting a huge total, on the back of Ishan Kishan’s 84 and an 82 from Suryakumar Yadav. The five-time champions shattered a few records.
In their final match at IPL 2021, the Mumbai Indians bowed in style and delivered a 235/9 mammoth against Sunrisers in Match 55 in Abu Dhabi on Friday.
MI took a miracle to make the playoffs and had to beat SRH by a margin of 171 runs or more to make the playoffs. However, it was a huge mountain for MI and despite winning 42 races, his campaign was over.
MI’s highest IPL total
MI’s 235/9 is their highest IPL total of all time. Earlier, the most runs they had put up was 223/6 against Punjab Kings (formerly Kings XI Punjab) back in 2017. It is also the highest total posted by any team against SRH.
The highest total in the UAE
MI’s all-time highest IPL total was also the highest ever in the UAE, going past 228/7 posted by Delhi Capitals against Kolkata Knight Riders last year.
The quickest half-century of IPL 2021
Ishan raced to a 16-ball half-century, which is the fastest in IPL 2021. Before Ishan, as many as four players had scored a 17-ball fifty, including Kieron Pollard against Chennai Super Kings in the India-leg.
Hardik Pandya had scored a 17-ball fifty against KKR in 2019, while Ishan once did it himself back in 2918. Not only was this the quickest IPL fifty this year, but it was also the fastest ever for MI. Ishan’s fifty was also the joint third-fastest in the Indian Premier League.
MI’s second-best powerplay score
MI raced to 83/1 at the end of the Powerplay, which is their second-best of all time, falling just one run short of what could have been a joint-highest.
Back in IPL 2018, MI had stormed to 84 in the first six overs against Delhi Capitals.
Joint-highest at the 10-over mark
After reaching 83/1 in the Powerplay, MI continued to hit them big. By the end of the first half of the innings.
MI had posted 131/3, which is the joint-highest total at the 10-over mark, matching KXIP’s 131/3 against SRH.
Suryakumar’s best show
Suryakumar’s knock of 82 is his highest in the IPL, going past the unbeaten 79 he hit last year.
