IPL: Sunrisers Hyderabad leave Mumbai Indians in tatters, move to third place

IPL 2018: Humid Mumbai to host MI vs SRH clash

IPL 2018, MI vs SRH match preview: Can Rohit Sharma gift a win to Sachin Tendulkar?

While MI suffered their fourth last-over defeat in five games on Sunday, only a few hours earlier, SRH had tasted the bitterness of a last-ball defeat. Will Tuesday's tie be as exciting? This time it's the MI that will host the match at their home ground, Wankhede Stadium.

This content is restricted to site members. This should be a good contest between two well-performing bowling attacks and two batting lineups struggling with their middle orders. But eventually, the SRH bowlers scripted the win for their side by defending such a low score successfully.

Sunrisers Hyderabad may need to look at adding some depth to their batting line-up for this upcoming match.

The rest of the Mumbai batsmen were not up to the task with Kaul grabbing three wickets as Sunrisers romped to a sensational win.

Mumbai Indians are playing with the same XI.

The Mumbai innings started on a rather boring note where opener Suryakumar Yadav tried to stabilize the innings but no one actually stayed long enough with him to provide Mumbai Indians with a firm base.

Mumbai's chase was in disarray when it stuttered at 21-3 in the sixth over that included key wicket of captain Rohit Sharma for just 2. He did well for his 33-ball 29 with a couple of fours and a six to his name.

Shikhar Dhawan's return to the SRH XI didn't last long on the pitch as the left-hander edged McClenaghan onto his stumps while attempting a drive, which looked half-hearted at best - probably because of the previous delivery that Dhawan inside-edged onto his knee for a painful blow. Yusuf Pathan and Mohammad Nabi tried to push the score but Mustafizur, Markande and Bumrah bowled excellent spells to restrict SRH to 118 in 18.4 overs.

Hyderabad bowlers hunted in pack, with medium pacer Siddharth Kaul picking three wickets, while leg-spinner Rashid Khan and pacer Basil Thampi picking took two wickets each.

Mumbai, which now has lost five out of six matches, buckled against some fine seam and spin bowling despite Hyderabad going without its frontline injured seamers. Although they have been in good form, MI's solo win has come only when Rohit Sharma was amongst the runs and the Hitman would be itching to contribute to the team's win after a suicidal run out against the Rajasthan Royals in the last encounter.

Mitchell McClenaghan, Hardik Pandya and Mayank Markhande picked up two wickets apiece to pack off the visitors for the season's lowest total.

Hardik had Williamson (29) caught behind off an inside edge and Manish Pandey (16) drove carelessly in the covers as Hyderabad stuttered at 63-5 in the ninth over.

Sunrisers have not named a replacement for Stanlake yet and are already grappling with injury concerns to their pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
