Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad locked horns at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in the 65th match of the IPL 2022. It was a must-win game for SRH in order to stay alive in the playoffs contest, and they kept their dream alive by winning the contest by three runs.

SRH lost their opener, Abhishek Sharma (9 off 10), early in the third over, but it was followed by a significant 78-run partnership between Priyam Garg and Rahul Tripathi, with the latter guiding the attack. It was Ramandeep Singh who gave MI the much-needed breakthrough by scalping Garg for a 26-ball 42. But Tripathi was unstoppable as he wreaked havoc on the field by finding the gaps regularly to send the ball for boundaries.

Nicholas Pooran (38 off 22) carried on from where Garg left off, while Tripathi (76 off 44) glided to another half-century, exhibiting a variety of strokes throughout his magnificent innings. MI fought back impressively in the death overs, taking a flurry of wickets. Kane Williamson was dropped down the order, but couldn’t work much towards the end.

Daniel Sams, Riley Meredith, and Jasprit Bumrah were a touch expensive but each took a wicket. However, Ramandeep Singh was the star of the show in Mumbai today, as he played his position as the sixth bowler flawlessly, taking three wickets as a result of his efforts.

SRH survived the MI scare to stay alive in the race

Hyderabad batters had done their job well, but it was now the bowlers’ duty to defend 194 runs. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan started the chase with a bang, adding an unbeaten 51-run partnership in the powerplay. SRH bowlers were expensive and went wicketless till the 10th over as the MI opening duo put up a 89-run stand. Washington Sundar’s return to the attack proved beneficial for SRH, as they got their first wicket in the form of Sharma (48 off 36), who missed out on a well-deserved half-century.

Umran Malik, who had conceded 17 runs in his first over, went on to scalp three wickets in the next two overs of his spell, thereby dismissing Kishan (43 off 34), Tilak Varma (8 off 9), and Sams (15 off 11). Tim David (46 off 18) took on Natarajan and smashed him for four sixes, but the latter had the last laugh as he sent the power-hitter walking back to the pavilion. The lower-order batters fought hard, but could not succeed as SRH won the contest by three runs.
