Most runs in one over in IPL: Watch Mumbai Indians’ Romario Shepherd smashes 32 against Delhi Capitals

Mumbai Indians batter Romario Shepherd went ballistic in the 20th over of the innings against Delhi Capitals, scoring 32 runs as Anrich Nortje was taken to the cleaners.

Nortje, entrusted with closing out the innings dished some looseners and the West Indian batter took full advantage of it. Shepherd smashed two fours and four maximums to power MI to 234 for five in the stipulated 20 overs.

The South African pacer has had a horrid time in the field ever since making a comeback after injury and Sunday (Apr 7) afternoon was no different. Nortje’s 2/65 was the most expensive spell of the 2024 season and the joint most expensive spell bowled by a Dehli bowler, equalling the unfortunate record set by Umesh Yadav in 2023.

Despite getting a fiery start to the innings, courtesy of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, MI lost their way in the middle overs as skipper Hardik Pandya played a laborious innings to kill the momentum. However, both Shepherd and Tim David in the last 12 deliveries managed to score 51 runs and guided MI to an above-par total.
