IPL 2018, SRH vs MI: 3 Things you might have missed
Another successful run chase scripted by bowlers, in the absence of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, and Shikhar Dhawan in the batting department, even though it was not as convincing as the previous match.
Over-dependence of Rohit Sharma is starting to show up for men in blue who failed to mount a decent total batting first to trouble the opposition finishing in the losing side, despite a brilliant performance by a young rookie Mayank Markande bagging four wickets for just 23 runs.
Sportskeeda takes a look at the three unnoticed things from the match which had a considerable impact on the end result.
#1 Catches being dropped by SRH fielders
T20 teams around the world are always built with power hitters and utility all rounders where they look to win it with the bat in the first place and bowling always comes second in regard to preference.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is a notable exception to that custom where the emphasis is given to bowling and fielding.
It was no different today except for the catching where they dropped two relatively easy ones. Deepak Hooda and Sandeep Sharma were the two culprits who gave lifelines to Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan respectively.
Thankfully both of the drops didn’t cost them much as they accepted didn’t repeat the mistakes and caught the next ones without giving away many.
