Deepak Hooda played a crucial inning for Sunrisers Hyderabad to attest his auction value for the team. His six in the last over thriller clinched the match against Mumbai Indians at their home ground. It was the third IPL 2018 match of Mumbai Indians. Hyderabad won the match by a single wicket chasing the target of 147. While bowling, Hyderabad strangulated Mumbai’s inning with a strong economy. Rohit Sharma holed out to Shakib Al Hasan playing the delivery off Billy Stanlake in the second over. Evin Lewis and Ishan Kishan played throughout the powerplay overs hauling the score to 48. Both lost their wickets to Siddharth Kaul in the sixth over.
Evin Lewis propelled the early momentum in the inning scoring a 17-ball-29. He hammered 3 fours and 2 sixes in a fiery inning. In the middle order, Suryakumar Yadav steered the inning with a slow 28 runs, playing careful through spin attacks. Krunal Pandya played 10 balls for 15 runs in a cameo with Keiron Pollard. The latter scored 28 off 23 runs striking 3 fours and 2 sixes. The highest partnership in the IPL Match was the stand for 38 runs between Yadav and Pollard.
In the IPL inning, Rashid Khan bowled brilliantly slogging the run rate. He maintained an economy of 3.25 bowling 4 overs. Although he had only a single wicket by the end, his attack was crucial for Hyderabad to restrict Mumbai within limited runs. It was the haste of Mumbai batsmen to get big runs that incurred the disruption. Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya and even Keiron Pollard lost their wickets trying to hit inappropriate shots for boundaries.
Hyderabad’s chase started with a strong strike off Wriddhiman Saha and Shikhar Dhawan. In an impressive partnership of seven overs, they scored 62 runs. Saha scored 22 off 20 runs ending his strike being trapped in a delivery off Mayank Markande. Kane Williamson played a single boundary parting away in the following over. In the next over, Dhawan collapsed at 45. He played 28 balls striking 8 fours in the stretch. Markande removed four wickets in the inning wrecking the top order.
Deepak Hooda steered the inning since the middle overs playing with the lower order. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah and Mushtafizur Rahman began scalping the lower order. The ultimate over game was the critical turning point. Hooda and Billy Stanlake were on the crease with a required run rate of around 200. The first ball was six from Hooda, bringing the equation to 5 runs off 5 balls. This reduced the equation to win to a single run off the last ball. Stanlake struck the winning runs taking away the match off Mumbai.
