It was that IPL match of the year at the Wankhede Stadium where the school children, numbering 21,000 in total from – 3,000 more than the previous year as part of the Mumbai Indians initiative – enjoyed an action-packed cricket. They ought to have scored more than 200 for the kind of start Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis gave them. They raced to 84/0 in their first six overs but managed only 194/7 at the end of their 20 overs. Mumbai Indians should not have let the match slip from their hands. And more importantly, they had their hard-hitting opener Roy right till the last ball, something that Mumbai Indians will be need to do if they are to start winning.
