Amit Mishra celebrates after dismissing Rohit Sharma

Veteran Indian bowler of Delhi Capitals, Amit Mishra, on Tuesday, scripted two elusive feats in the history of the Indian Premier League after dismissing Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma in the 13th game of the ongoing IPL 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. 

Dismissing Rohit in the 9th over the game with nicely tossed-up delivery, Mishra became the bowler to have dismissed the MI skipper most number of times in IPL history - seven times - one more than Sunil Narine and Vinay Kumar. No other bowler has removed a batsman more often in the IPL than Mishra's number against Rohit, levelling with Sandeep Sharma's seven dismissals of Virat Kohli and Zaheer Khan of MS Dhoni

Talking about the game, Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bat first in Chennai.

Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav made a strong recovery after the early dismissal of Quinton de Kock, with a 58-run stand before Avesh Khan broke the stand.

Mishra then ran riot dismissing Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, after Rohit's dismissal to restrict Mumbai's scoring in the middle overs.
