Mumbai batting first managed to pull up a score of 208, pulling up a 200+ score is an important milestone in any t20 match. This meant that the match was action-packed for both the players and the fans. It was a joint effort from the Mumbai Indians to pull up a score of 208, Quinton De Kock with 67 of 39 balls, Ishan Kishan with 31 of 23 balls, and other teammates helped achieve this score unanimously.

Hyderabad managed to score 174, which is definitely not a bad score for a t20, but not enough to clinch their victory against Mumbai, David Warner with 60 of 44 balls, Manish Pandey with 30 of 19 balls, were some main contributors, sadly not enough to assert their victory, but we do expect them to make up for this loss in future matches while continuing their brilliant performance.

Important turn of events, man of the match, the New Zealand bowler Trent Boult, MI bowler played an important role in keeping Hyderabad away from the 200 score margin. Securing 2 wickets for only 28 runs, which is an economy of 7, making sure that Hyderabad doesn’t leave the Sharjah stadium with a victory.

“I don’t actually get Kane out too much in the nets. So nice to do so, but more important to get the wicket,” said Man of the Match Boult when asked in the post-match presentation.

With similar stats the man in the shadow J. Pattinson showcased almost the same stats, giving 29 runs in 4 overs and securing 2 wickets with an economy of 7.25 need not go unnoticed, after all its the team effort which clench victories and individual effort which clench records. The bowling side of SRH didn’t prove to be fruitful, even though the pitch is batting oriented, the bowlers did lack to perform up to their mark thus giving away a total of 101 runs, Sandeep Sharma(2/41) and Siddarth Kaul (2/64) did not play up to the expectations, thus decreasing their team’s chances to get another ‘V’.

Sharjah is a comparatively small stadium, meaning that securing boundaries is easier for the batsman and hence a batting pitch. With that said, MI scored 72 runs of 12 sixes, to which SRH commented on twitter with some slight humour intended, the tweet went,” These sixes in Sharjah hurt”. Mumbai did everything to defend their score and succeeded to do so, amazing performance from the batsman securing boundaries and a great attempt from the bowlers by preventing the SRH batsman chase the score even in such a small ground. SRH definitely put up a good fight and did not fail to give us some really close encounters and a thump, however, MI did its job and managed to defend their score from being chased leading them one step closer to the cup.
