In the 56th match of the 13th season of IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won in Sharjah on Tuesday night. They defeated the strong Mumbai Indians (MI) by 10 wickets in his 'do or die' match. Sunrisers first stopped Mumbai for 149/8 runs and then scored 151/0 without loss in 17.1 overs and achieved the winning target (150 runs). The opening pair of captain David Warner (85 not out) and Wriddhiman Saha (58 not out) led the Mumbai Indians bowlers to wicket.
With this priceless win, Sunrisers Hyderabad made a bang in the play-offs. After this result of the last league match of the current IPL, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) campaign came to an end. Sunrisers won their third consecutive win.
This was the 7th win by Sunrisers. She came third in the points table after Mumbai (18) and Delhi Capitals (16) on the basis of better run rate with 14 scores in 14 matches. That is, she will now play against the number four Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on November 6 in the Eliminator.
This was the 5th defeat of Mumbai Indians. She remained on top with 18 points from 14 matches. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) campaign ended with Sunrisers victory. She also scored 14 points in 14 matches, but due to poor net run rate she was eliminated from the last four.
Captain David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha gave a great start to the team of Sunrisers who came to chase the target of 150 runs. Both shared an unbroken partnership of 151 runs for the first wicket. Without Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, the Mumbai team had a craving for wickets.
David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha scored 151 runs in 17.1 overs without losing any wickets, unearthing the Mumbai bowlers. Warner remained unbeaten on 85 off 58 balls, which included 10 fours and a six, while Saha scored 58 runs in 45 balls with the help of 7 fours and a six.
This is Warner's 48th half-century in the IPL and he is the most successful foreign batsman of the league. Only more runs in the IPL are Virat Kohli (5872 runs in 191 matches) and Suresh Raina (5368 runs in 193 matches). Warner has scored 5235 runs in 140 matches.
Warner runs over 500 in 6 seasons.
With this, he became the first batsman to score more than 500 runs (529 *) in six seasons in the IPL. Earlier, he scored in 2014 (528 runs), 2015 (562 runs), 2016 (548 runs), 2017 (641 runs) and 2019 (692 runs).
Mumbai Indians were able to score 149/8.
Sunrisers Hyderabad stopped Mumbai Indians for 149/8 on the basis of their bowlers' best performance led by Sandeep Sharma. If Kieron Pollard had not scored 41 runs in 25 balls at the end, the situation in Mumbai would have been worse. Pollard scored 3 consecutive sixes to T. Natarajan in the 19th over to bring Mumbai to a respectable score. He hit 2 fours and 4 sixes in his innings.
Warner made the right decision for bowling
Captain David Warner won the toss and decided to bowl accurately. His bowlers performed so disciplined that only one run was wasted in the entire innings. Sandeep took 3 wickets for 34 runs in 4 overs, while Man of the match Shahbaz Nadeem bowled extremely economical and took two wickets for 19 runs in 4 overs.
In the third over, Sandeep caught Rohit in the hands of Warner and gave a tough blow to Mumbai. Quinton De Kock hit Sandeep for 2 sixes and a four in the 5th over, but was bowled on the next ball. He scored 25 runs in 13 balls with the help of 2 fours and 2 sixes.
