Defending champions Mumbai Indians got off to a losing start to this year’s IPL. After doing everything right for the most part of the game, Dwayne Bravo brought out his best game to snatch victory from them.

They would be coming into this game looking to set their mistakes right, especially with their bowling.

On the other hand, SRH put all doubts of them managing without David Warner to rest by annihilating RR by 9 wickets in the opening game of their season. A complete team performance allowed them to go into their game against Mumbai with full confidence.

So in this clash between the defending champions and hosts SRH in what was a thrilling nail-biter where Kane Williamson's side managed to win the game, let us look at the talking points from this game:

#5 Rashid Khan’s outstanding spell of bowling stuns MI


Rashid Khan was in full flow in Hyderabad tonight. Grabbing outstanding control of the game situation, he squeezed MI’s innings. He never allowed the batsmen to get away throughout his spell of four overs.

Conceding just thirteen runs in his full quota of overs where he took one wicket, he showcased his full potential. His ability to turn the ball at a quicker pace troubles most batsmen makes him such an invaluable asset for Kane Williamson to have.

18 dot balls in his spell just sums up how good his performance was especially coming against an opponent as strong as the Mumbai Indians. Deservingly he got the Man of the Match award.
