In order to keep their hopes alive to qualify for the IPL playoffs, Mumbai Indians had to register a win over Sunrisers Hyderabad and the five-time champions eventually did it in style. Chasing 201 runs in 20 overs, MI skipper Rohit Sharma gave a perfect start to the home side as Australia international Cameron Green later chipped in well, scoring his maiden IPL century and helping Mumbai win the match by eight wickets.

On the other hand, following MI’s win, Royal Challengers Bangalore had a tough job in hand as they had to beat defending champions Gujarat Titans in order to topple MI in the IPL points table and qualify for the playoffs. Keeping that in mind, RCB started well as Virat Kohli hit a magnificent century in M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Based on his innings, RCB posted 197 runs board after 20 overs but that unfortunately wasn’t enough.

The prince, as he is popularly known, Shubman Gill played a phenomenal innings, scoring 104* runs off 52 deliveries to help GT win by six wickets. With that, RCB got eliminated from the competition while Shubman’s innings confirmed MI’s berth in the playoffs. Following this, former India international Sachin Tendulkar took to Twitter to laud the three centurions of May 21 and specially thanked Cameron Green and Shubman Gill for helping MI qualify for yet another playoff.

“Cameron Green & Shubman Gill batted well for @mipaltan. Amazing innings by Virat Kohli
too to score back-to-back 100’s. They all had their methods & were in the class of their own. So happy to see MI in the playoffs. Go Mumbai,” Sachin wrote.
