In a grand tussle, Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets with 10 balls remaining. The second wicket partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Moises Henriques brought 91 runs. It was stretch to 11 overs, transforming the target of 139 to an almost easy feat to achieve. With the victory, Hyderabad marked its sixth win off seven matches at their home ground. In the previous inning, Mumbai batsmen were struck on the slow pitch. Rohit Sharma took the score to the decent figures remaining on the crease until the pre-ultimate over. He scored 67 off 45 to salvage his team. The victory however, did not have any impact on Hyderabad’s position on the point chart. Still it extended their timeline on the competition.
Learnt well, they bowled tight in the following overs. The enterprise took down all but captain Rohit Sharma. He played aggressive hurling the first ball he faced to the boundary. After some haste, he settled down on the pitch and began playing phenomenal shots. His poise showed up in the 14 overs when the player smashed three fours off Moises Henriques. He scored more than half the total runs before leaving for the pavilion. The rest of the team was inconsistent.
Sunrisers started with a pressure. This might be the reason David Warner could not offer any impetus falling in the seventh ball of the chase. But when Dhawan and Henriques partnered, the pitch seemed to give a way for bit hits. The batsmen leveraged the overs from Karn Sharma, Malinga, steering the inning with proper momentum. The chase was, in fact, half work done by the bowlers in the previous inning, making it easier for batsmen. While Henriques hauled it to 98 by 12.1 overs, Dhawan remained unbeaten taking the team to the victory mark. He scored 62 off 46. For the rest, there was only little left to do.
