However, defending champions Gujarat Titans ended Mumbai Indians' playoff winning streak by securing a commanding 62-run victory in the match.
A notable incident occurred during the 16th over of Gujarat's innings, when Chris Jordan, the bowler, was hit by Ishan while both were in motion, resulting in a collision. Jordan's elbow struck Ishan's left eye, leading to a temporary halt in the match
Expressing his surprise at the incident, Rohit mentioned that Ishan suffered a concussion, but the exact cause of the injury remained unclear.
Mumbai Indians experienced a disheartening defeat in Ahmedabad following the unfortunate injury.
The freak injury denied Rohit Sharma to open with Ishan and later MI were forced to go in with Vishnu as his replacement in the batting order.
