SRH vs MI: IPL 2023 Match Report
SRH had a lackluster start by throwing away wickets on regular intervals
The centurion Harry Brook got dismissed in the second over. Sunrisers Hyderabad had a hot & cold start. Mumbai Indians bowlers gave the perfect start they wanted. Rahul Tripathi also lost his wicket for a small score of 7 and both the wickets were taken by Jason Behrendorff.
After scoring 22, Markram also got dismissed, and this time it was Cameron Green who picked up the crucial wicket. Abhishek Sharma once again failed to convince the home fans as he got removed from the crease for only 1. Piyush Chawla did the job for Mumbai Indians.
Heinrich Klaasen & Mayank Agarwal countered but MI got the better of Hyderabad at last
Heinrich Klaasen then played a blistering inning of 36 in just 16 deliveries and it completely changed the match. Mayank Agarwal was supporting him with singles and doubles and tried to not throw away his wickets just like the others. After a 55 runs stand, Piyush Chawla struck again and it was a huge wicket of the dangerous man, Klaasen. Riley Meredith sent Mayank Agarwal home after a fighting inning of 48 runs.
Arjun Tendulkar, who made a debut for Mumbai in the last game, bowled really well this time once again. It’s giving a positive vibe to Mumbai Indians. He bowled the last over to defend 20 runs and he brilliantly did so. He gave only 18 runs in his 2.5-over spell and picked up a wicket as Sunriser Hyderabad lost their all wickets for 178 runs.
