It was the match which was supposed to have ended much before then it was concluded. Sunrisers Hyderabad was chasing just a target of 148, and at one stage when Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda were batting, it was looking like a game to get completed in an over. But as we say expect the unexpected.!
It was the Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah bowling 18th over of the SRH inning and his last in the match got two in two and it was Mustafizur Rahman in the very next over who two wickets in previous 3 bowls of his over and Sunrisers Hyderabad were left stunned and were chasing 10 runs in last over with single wicket in hand. Before that SRH needed 15 runs in 3 overs with five wickets in hands, they say cricket is the game of uncertainty, which is going in true in this IPL season. Only seven matches have completed this season, and few of them were an absolute thriller.
It was Hyderabad winning toss in their 2nd consecutive home game against Mumbai Indian’s and decided to have a bowl first. Mumbai lost 1st wicket of their skipper at 11 runs then created a fine partnership of 37 runs, but in the last, over of powerplay Ishan Kishan went back to pavilion and later on wickets fall at regular intervals for MI. They anyhow managed to post a total of 147 for loss of 8 wickets. Rashid Khan was the pick of the bowler for SRH. He just gave 13 runs in his quota of 4 runs and picking up a wicket of Ben Cutting. He was also awarded Man of the Match.
Hyderabad started their chase on a perfect note, scoring 56 in their power-play without a loss of a wicket. It was looking like an easy chase for Sunrisers but as the game progress equation moved both sides favouring the teams in equal ways. SRH win was looking quite simple when Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda were batting but losing 4 wickets in 9 balls made it difficult for SRH. There were extreme chances of super over, but it was Deepak Hooda and Billy Stanlake who took Sunrisers Hyderabad to cross the line in the last ball of the match.
