IPL 2018: SRH vs MI: 5 reasons why Mumbai Indians lost
The 7th match of the IPL 2018 was a clash between the three-time champions Mumbai Indians and the Kane Williamson led Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium.
Kane won the toss and put the defending champions Mumbai into bat. Mumbai got off to a strong start courtesy some lusty hitting by Evin Lewis. However, Sidharth Kaul’s double-wicket over changed the complexion of the game.
Mumbai failed to get any momentum going in their innings and could only post a paltry score of 147 in their allotted 20 overs. In reply, Hyderabad got off to a flier with the help of some excellent batting from Shikhar Dhawan.
However, an astonishing collapse brought the game back in Mumbai’s favor. Deepak Hooda then showed Dhoni like composure to take his side home in a thrilling contest. The match turned out to be an all-time classic.
Let us have a look at the 5 reasons why the defending champions Mumbai lost such a tight contest.
