Sunrisers Hyderabad faced a defeat after six matches in IPL. In the home fixture of Mumbai Indians, the team ensured that they nick the game. The spells from Jasprit Bumrah with intense variation and accurate line was enough to restrict Sunrisers Hyderabad at 158 for 8. Not only Bumrah, Harbhajan Singh too was imperative in toppling the team.
Whereas, Sunrisers bowlers Mustafizur Rahman and Rashid Khan lacked the grip, bowling to batsmen like Nitish Rana, Parthiv Patel, and Krunal Pandya. In 2.4 overs, Rahman conceded 34 runs. It was the stretch where Patel plundered most of his 24 ball 39. He played until half the inning, steering the chase steady to the victory mark. Rana emerged as top scorer knocking 45 runs throughout the middle overs with Krunal Pandya. Rana hauled the chase almost to the victory mark. He was removed in the 18th over when the score reached 155.
Hyderabad’s inning was headstrong with Shekhar Dhawan and David Warner scaling the opening partnership of 81 runs. The openers batted together for 10.2 overs, until Warner was contained with a skidding delivery from Harbhajan Singh. Warner was denied the half century being dismissed at 49. Dhawan followed about five overs with a similar contribution. He knocked 48 off 43 until bowled by Mitchell McClenaghan. The bowler was introduced after the powerplay, before which, Dhawan and Warner forged a good foundation.
However, the opening inning was all that Hyderabad could deliver. Rest of the wickets could not withstand the attacks from Bumrah and Harbhajan falling at single digit score. The team was 81 for 0 in 10.1. the figure was 123 for 4 with the wicket of Yuvraj Singh. This plummeted to 155 for 8 in the final over when Rashid Khan was sent back to pavilion. 7 wickets were dismissed for 72 runs. This was only a projection of their defeat. Mumbai Indians reached the target in 18.4 overs with six wickets.
