Sunrisers beat Mumbai Indians by 3 runs, get place in play-off race

Rahul Tripathi and Umran Malik emerged as the stars of the evening at the Wankhede Stadium as the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defeated Mumbai Indians (MI) by three runs in the IPL clash on Tuesday evening.

With this win, SRH remain alive in the play-offs race. They need to win their last game and hope for other results to go their way.

Tripathi scored 76 from 44 balls to guide Sunrisers Hyderabad to a challenging 193 for six. He was ably complemented by Priyam Garg (42) and Nicholas Pooran (38). Umran Malik (3/23 in three overs) then produced a sensational performance, while the seasoned Bhuveneshwar Kumar (1/26 off 4) bowled a wicket maiden in the crucial 19th over to stop MI at 190 for seven.

Chasing 194, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan provided MI with a solid start. The pair added 95 runs till the first wicket, after which players were dismissed in quick succession. Rohit departed for 48(36), while Ishan was dismissed for 43(34). The Mumbai innings also featured a massive 26-run over, which saw Tim David hit T Natarajan for four huge maximums before he was run-out in the final ball.

Invited to bat, the Sunrisers’ gamble to play Garg at the top of the order paid off. The 21-year-old played a fine knock while sharing a 78-run partnership with Tripathi after the in-form Abhishek Sharma (9) was sent back in the third over.
