It was total madness at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai as Kings XI Punjab held Mumbai Indians to 223/6 to defend their humongous total of 230. 453 runs were scored in 40 overs and fans got their money’s worth.
While Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma were the heroes of the match for their performance with the ball, the electrifying contest also witnessed some freakish power-hitting from Wriddhiman Saha, Glenn Maxwell, Lendl Simmons, Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya.
Twitter went crazy after the batting blitzkrieg. Here are some of the best reactions.

Was Mad Max Fury at the Wankhede! And what an innings from Wriddhiman Saha. Should open for Punjab for the rest of #IPL2017— राकेश ब्राह्मण 🇮🇳 (@imrasodranzer) May 11, 2017
