IPL MI vs SRH match review
A clash that had all the makings of an edge of the seat thriller saw all the pieces fall into place on Thursday night. Bound to be an extraordinary clash, it completely lived up to expectations as it went way beyond the wire to what was only the second super over of this season. In the end, it was Mumbai who were able to maintain their composure as they went onto script a comfortable win in the deciding draw breaker to cement their top 4 berth.
Chasing 162, a topsy turvy chase by SRH kept switching hands before the match swung one last time in the visiting side’s balance. Needing 17 runs to get off the final over, a calamitous one by Pandya saw Manish hit a six off the last ball to tilt the match in SRH’s balance as scores became level. The match shifted to just the second super over of this engrossing Indian Premier League, one that saw SRH come out to bat yet again.

Looking to build on the momentum they had garnered from a sensational last-ball finish, SRH’s quest to score the runs fell flat on their face. It couldn’t have been a more contentious 4 balls for them, one that saw Manish Pandey being run out off the first ball before Nabi was subsequently dismissed off the 4th.

Completely bludgeoned by Bumrah’s tight over, SRH made yet another dismal mistake as they handed the ball over to Rashid Khan. You just don’t give a spinner the concluding over in a T20 encounter, something the Sunrisers learnt the hard way as it took the Indians just 4 balls to get past what was a nothing target in the end.
Earlier in the day, the Sunrisers Hyderabad had delivered a terrific bowling performance on a Wankhede Stadium surface that was cut out of the same cloth as some of the best in the world. The death over bowling was pitch perfect, a clinical display by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and company that completely decimated the Indians bid to put on a huge total.
What had set the back was Quinton de Kock’s decadent innings, one he played out only to fulfill a personal goal rather than taking his side to a big score. He ate up 58 balls, managing to score only 69 runs and as the rest of the middle-order tumbled, the Indians were only able to tumble towards 162-5 in the end, something SRH were able to get given Manish’s 71 run off 47 balls.
