Mumbai Indians batter Romario Shepherd slammed 32 runs in the final over to claim a massive record during the IPL 2024 match against Delhi Capitals on Sunday. Shepherd took DC fast bowler Anrich Nortje to the cleaners as he scored two fours and four sixes to register the costliest over of this year’s competition. The West Indies international started the over with a four straight down the ground followed by a six over long-on. The third delivery from Nortje was a straight one but Shepherd shuffled across the stumps and heaved it for another six on the leg-side. A six over sweeper cover and a four through long-on followed with Shepherd finishing the show with a massive hit over wide long-on.

The destructive batting display left the Mumbai Indians dressing room completely stunned with Sachin Tendulkar applauding the effort and skipper Hardik Pandya’s expressions going viral on social media.

Romario Shepherd clobbered 32 runs off Anrich Nortje’s 20th over as Mumbai Indians batting unit fired in unison to post an imposing 234 for 5 against Delhi Capitals in an IPL match on Sunday.

Shepherd tore into Nortje, hammering four sixes and two fours as his 10-ball-39 not out ensured the fourth highest innings total in this IPL for MI. This was also their highest total at Wankhede. Nortje’s final figures read a sorry 2 for 65 in 4 overs. Ishant Sharma, in all likelihood, playing his last IPL edition is looking a pale shadow of his very old self, being taken for 40 in 3 overs.

Shepherd was last to join the party but seemed to have made the most of it, after each of Rohit Sharma (49 off 27 balls), Ishan Kishan (42 off 23 balls), Hardik Pandya (39 off 30) and Tim David (45 not out off 21 balls, 2 fours, 4 sixes) also made merry in batting-friendly conditions at the Wankhede Stadium.

It was, however, a forgettable outing for Suryakumar Yadav, who perished for two-ball duck on his first game since mid-December last year.

But David’s fiery knock and Shepherd’s late fireworks ensured that they still had a huge total on board.
