5 memorable moments from the SRH vs MI match that don’t fade away
SRH cruise past MI to keep their playoff aspirations alive.
Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad and table toppers Mumbai Indians came up against each other in match no. 48 of Vivo IPL 10. It was an important game for the Sunrisers as the race to the playoffs is heating up.
After winning the toss, Mumbai opted to bat first and were restricted to a total of 138 on a track that was difficult to bat on. Their attack was led by skipper Rohit Sharma who scored a gritty 45-ball 67.
On the back of exceptional batting by Shikhar Dhawan, the hosts chased down the target with 10 balls to spare and still have a good chance of making the playoffs.
Here are 5 memorable moments from the match that don't fade away, quite like the Axe Signature range of body perfumes:
#1 Siddharth Kaul’s spell
Siddharth Kaul has been a revelation of sorts for the Sunrisers. Against Mumbai, he removed an in form Nitish Rana, followed by Parthiv Patel and then skipper Rohit Sharma.
Rana (11-ball 9) miscued a big hit off Kaul and spooned a simple catch to mid off.
Off the very next delivery, Kaul could have removed Parthiv as well, but Vijay Shankar dropped a simple catch at point. But an over later, Patel (17-ball 23) could not pick Kaul’s slower ball and was caught at long-on by Warner.
Kaul’s biggest wicket came in the form of the skipper Rohit Sharma, who looked in sublime form but got an inside edge onto the stumps. No other batsman bar Rohit looked even remotely comfortable on the two-paced pitch. This was a huge wicket as the Mumbai skipper had to depart after scoring a 45-ball 67.
