Mohit Sharma took 27 wickets in IPL 2023
Jadeja gave victory to CSK by hitting Mohit’s last ball for a four.
New Delhi. The 16th edition of IPL was great for experienced fast bowler Mohit Sharma. How can one forget the last over of the final match against Chennai Super Kings. Mohit put the initial 4 balls of the 20th over at the right place but 2 balls did not support him and Gujarat Titans missed out on getting closer to the title. After losing the final, Mohit revealed that he wanted to bowl the last ball with a yorker but the ball did not land at the right spot.
In a conversation with the Indian Express, Mohit said, ‘I ran to bowl the last ball of the yorker. The way I bowled throughout the IPL, I wanted to stay focused on the last ball as well. The last ball did not land where it was supposed to. Jadeja hit the bat on the last ball. I tried my best from my side. ,
Mohit is still sad that he could not make his team the champion. Mohit took a total of 27 wickets in 14 matches. He turned the match towards Gujarat by taking 2 wickets in the last over. Last year he was the net bowler with the team but this time he bowled amazingly.,

According to Mohit, ‘My sleepless nights disappeared after the final. I kept thinking what I could have done differently so that my team could become the champion. I am not feeling well at this time. Looks like I’ve lost something. Although now I am trying to overcome it. ,
Such was the thrill of the last over
In the last over, CSK needed 13 runs to win. Ravindra Jadeja and Shivam Dubey were at the crease. Mohit bowled the first ball of the last over, on which no run was scored. On the second ball, Shivam Dubey ran and completed one run. After this, one run came on the third and fourth ball respectively. Now CSK needed 10 runs from the last 2 balls. Jadeja sent the fifth ball across the boundary for six, while hitting a four on the sixth ball gave the team a memorable victory.
