Cameron Green scored a brilliant century as Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wins in the crucial IPL 2023 encounter at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. The win has kept Mumbai alive in the play-offs race, while Rajasthan Royals, who were also in contention, have been eliminated. Mumbai completed the 201 chase with two overs to spare. Rohit Sharma also played a good inning and scored 56(37). Earlier, Akash Madhwal led Mumbai’s bowling attack and picked four wickets to restrict Sunrisers Hyderabad at 200/5. The new SRH opening pair of Vivrant Sharma and Mayank Agarwal added 140 runs for the opening wicket. Both the batters were dismissed by Madhwal as Vivrant scored 69(47), while Mayank smashed 46-ball 83. Read the Match Report of the MI vs SRH clash and share your thoughts in the comments.

Agarwal and Vivrant got off to a slow start. Then the openers overcame that and set the game up. The slow start wasn’t due to lack of trying, though. It was possibly a case of nerves and some good shots finding the fielders. Vivrant soon brought up his half-century off just 36 deliveries.

Agarwal joined the party and he also completed his half-century in just 32 balls by hitting Jason Behrendorff superbly inside-out over cover for a six. Akash Madhwal brought Mumbai some relief when he dismissed Vivrant for 69. It was the highest score by an Indian in a debut IPL innings, and second-best overall.

Agarwal then raced towards a century. He went from 62 off 36 to 83 off 45, courtesy of a sensational takedown of Kumar Kartikeya and Chawla off successive overs. But his dismissal to Madhwal off a knuckleball dug in to have him heaving across the line and nicking, brought Mumbai back.

Madhwal also removed Klaasen and Harry Brook off consecutive deliveries to finish with 4 for 37. The last four overs produced just 32 as Sunrisers eventually just past 200 after a last-ball six by Aiden Markram.

Sunrisers removed Kishan early for just 14 runs. They could have got an another one when Rohit mistimed a heave to midwicket. Sanvir put down a straightforward chance and the Mumbai skipper survived.

Kartik Tyagi kept bowling hittable lengths and compounded his misery by overstepping. Green smashed four fours and two sixes off his first 10 balls to shift Mumbai into high gear. He soon brought up his half-century off just 20 balls, while Rohit went past 11,000 T20 runs. A part of this was down to some poor bowling by the spinners, who were all over the pace on a surface where there was hardly any purchase as the ball slid on nicely.

Rohit survived for second time, again by Sanvir on 51, but fell soon after. But when Suryakumar Yadav coolly walked in and lofted his first ball inside-out for four, it seemed as if he was in a hurry.

Suryakumar and Green next took down Umran Malik for 20 off the 16th over to bring down the equation from 41 off 30 to 21 off 24. From there on, it was a walk home with two overs to spare. The winning runs also delivered Green a maiden T20 hundred as Mumbai stayed alive for the playoffs.
