However, what will give MI heart going into this match is the way they blew apart SRH the previous time the two sides took to the field this year. In what was one of the most complete bowling performance of this season, the Mumbai Indians had taken apart SRH to defend a total as small as 136. Joseph’s figures of 6-12, the best by a bowler this season had left SRH’s chase in tatters as they went onto hand over the match to MI by losing their last 7 wickets for 35 runs.
