The most successful team in the IPL is Mumbai Indians. Surprisingly, in the first few years, the team did not win the IPL title again and again. But in the last few years, the franchise has been making up for that grief. They are record five-time champions. Why they are so powerful, Mumbai proved it again.
The team that batted first and scored 150 runs was losing at one stage. But the Mumbai bowlers did not agree to give up a single point. The fielders also tried their best to stop every run. Mumbai came back to life in a one-sided match with bowling and fielding. In the end, they pulled the match in their favor with a perfect plan. Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 13 runs to move to Mumbai.
In the first innings, Mumbai took the run in the power play. Hyderabad, which went down to chase, also followed that path. The team scored 57 runs without losing any wicket in the first 6 overs. David Warner and Johnny Bairstow on wickets. Only 94 runs are needed in the remaining 15 overs. Warner took charge of the edges on the one hand, and Bearstore on the other. The English batsman was playing at two hundred strikeouts.
Bairstow was tragically dismissed in the eighth over. Going back to make room for the kill, his foot landed on the stumps. Bairstow, who made 43 off 22 balls, returned as a hit wicket. The vitality of Hyderabad’s innings seemed to end after that. Manish Pandey returned in the next over.
Warner’s run out changed the match.
Hardik Pandya gave the main push to Hyderabad. Warner was run out in the 12th over. Warner, who scored 38 off 34 balls, had six wickets in hand after his return. 61 runs from 51 balls for 6 wickets is not very difficult. But Hyderabad could not come after the whole over. He managed to score only 46 runs in the remaining 8 wickets before being bowled out 2 balls earlier.
Trent Bolt got 3 wickets for 26 runs. However, Rahul Chahar and Yashpreet Bumra gave the main push to the opponent. Leg-spinner Rahul Chahar took 3 wickets for 19 runs. And even though he got 1 wicket, Bumra gave only 14 runs in 4 overs.
