IPL: SRH beat MI, who is the winner and sinner?
Sunrisers Hyderabad stunned Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede in match number 23 of 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL). After managing to score a paltry 118/10, SRH rode through an impressive bowling show to decimate Mumbai at their own backyard. Apart from Suryakumar Yadav's 34, none of the others showed much character. Here is the winner and sinner of the match.
The Afghan spinner was once again back to his best after being hammered in the last two matches. In his four over-spell he gave away only 11 runs besides picking two wickets. His maiden over against Hardik Pandya was the turning point. He got the key wickets of Krunal Pandya (24) and Kieron Pollard (9) which in turn destroyed the hosts.
Hardik Pandya's batting display on Tuesday hit a new low. Pandya was stuck at the crease and never had a move on against any of the bowlers. He looked uncomfortable against SRH bowlers and the maiden from Rashid was a body blow. Three runs from 19 deliveries in a chase in T20s showed how good the SRH bowlers were in containing Pandya.
Mumbai Indians' 87 run-inning is the lowest score in IPL 2018. SRH's 118 in the first innings was the lowest before that. This is SRH's first win at the Wankhede. Rashid Khan (2/11) bowled the most economic spell of IPL 2018.
