Sai Sudharsan kept Gujarat Titans afloat with a superb 39-ball 45. But the evening belonged to Bumrah, who missed the whole of last edition due to a lower back stress fracture. He dismissed David Miller and Sudharsan in the 17th over in a space of three deliveries in what could be a potential game-changer.

He was at his absolute best in his first IPL game in two years, firing in his express yorkers at will to help Mumbai Indians restrict Gujarat Titans to 168/6 on Sunday.

Bumrahโ€™s introduction in the fourth over brought MI instant success as the lead pacer sent back Saha with an express yorker, hitting the base of the middle stump. The former India stumper couldnโ€™t bring his bat down in quick time.

Piyush Chawla bowled an economical first over, even as GT managed 47 runs for the loss of one wicket in the powerplay. South African pacer Gerald Coetzee accounted for Azmatullah Omarzai (17), while the brilliant Bumrah sent back David Miller and Sudharsan in one over before Rahul Tewatia lifted GT with his lusty hits.
