Sharjah: Mumbai Indians (MI) registered their third win of the season after they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 34 runs in Match 17 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium yesterday.
Jasprit Bumrah removed Abdul Samad and Abhishek Sharma in the 19th and Kieron Pollard gives nothing away in the final over as MI pocket this match.
David Warner got stuck in as SRH remained on course to chase 209. But he was dismissed for 60 by James Pattinson. Manish Pandey smashed 30 off 19 to make up for the loss of Jonny Bairstow, who hammered 25 off just 15 balls to give SRH a good start against MI.
A slower ball by Trent Boult got Bairstow dismissed inside the Powerplay and another slower one by James Pattinson brought about Manish’s fall.
Earlier, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard got going at the death as they crossed 200 and finished 208/5 in their 20 overs.
Krunal Pandya’s final-over flourish — 6, 4, 4, 6 off the last four balls — gave Mumbai the momentum going into the second innings.
Pollard remained unbeaten on 25 off 13 even as Hardik was dismissed in the last over for 28 off 19. Quinton de Kock set things up for Mumbai with 67 off just 39 balls.
