Mumbai Indians (MI), yet again tops the points table following their win against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Sunday. They registered an easy win in Sharjah, where they defeated SRH by 34 runs.
Match report: Winning the toss, MI chose to bat first, something unusual that we see at Sharjah. With skipper falling cheaply, an out-of-form Quinton de Kock consolidated in the middle. He partnered little with both Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav and made 67 of 39 balls. It was Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, who contributed with the willow, following which Krunal Pandya struck 20 off just four balls. MI’s innings concluded with 208 runs on the board.
SRH, on the other hand, could not get the start as required. Losing Jonny Bairstow early, David Warner gathered runs from small partnerships with the middle-order batsmen. Unfortunately, no tail-ender could smash the big hits and SRH finished at 174, losing the match by 34 runs.
