Mumbai Indians have taken a formidable job of chasing 177 runs against Lucknow Super Giants on a challenging track. In a flourishing opening stand, MI's openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan have played some enthralling strokes all across the but, but the Hitman - as they call him - smoked an enormous maximum off Yash Thakur to showcase his vintage best.
On the first delivery of the fourth delivery, the Mumbai captain went across and down the track to a short delivery from a young LSG seamer and tonked him across the line over deep mid-wicket into the stands for a 92-metre maximum.
The hit from Rohit helped him join his partner Kishan, who initially played the aggressor, shoulder-to-shoulder in hitting.

That biggie off Yash Thakur wasn't the lone maximum which came off Rohit's blade in Lucknow on Tuesday, as he smashed a couple more against Naveen-ul-Haq and Thakur, respectively. However, his promising knock got ended by Ravi Bishnoi, who completed 50 IPL wickets with the prized wicket.
At the time of writing, MI have crossed the 100-run mark after 11.1 overs, but both the openers have been sent back to the hut.
