MI vs SRH LIVE Score, IPL 2021, Match 9: Mumbai Indians finish with 150/5 at end of 20 overs
IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): Bhuvneshwar bowls the 20th over after all. The swing specialist, who had been the most expensive in the SRH attack so far today, does a decent job initially in the final over, giving away a single off each of the first three deliveries, with Pollard having to dash back for a second off the fourth. All the good work, though, is undone in the last two balls as he misses his lengths, Pollard making the most of it with back-to-back sixes straight down the ground and over cow corner to help Mumbai breach the 150-run mark. 17 runs off the final over, as Bhuvneshwar gets smashed for 45 runs without getting a wicket today. Pollard’s 22-ball 35 has given the MI attack something to bowl to.
Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) play their third game of IPL 2021 against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Saturday and will be aiming to open their account in the league.
The David Warner-led side came agonisingly close to registering their first win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) three days ago but their middle order completely collapsed, leading to a six-run loss.
SRH anxiously await the return of star New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson, who has already missed out on the first two games due to elbow injury. Yesterday, SRH’s Twitter handle posted a video on his injury update where the Black Caps captain said he is looking to return to full fitness within a week. When he will be making a comeback is still a question. However, he is doing some practice in the nets. Hyderabad would benefit immensly if returns against MI, who are one of the toughest opponents in the competition.
Mumbai Indians are not expected to make any changed in their XI. They pulled off a win in their last clash against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) from the jaws of defeat and the win must have given the unit a huge boost of confidence. MI are known fighting till the end and pulling off such victories, the game against KKR was no different when their death overs specialist stepped up to deliver the goods.
For SRH, the task would be to find the best XI for themselves and also have a second look at the batting order with Wriddhiman Saha consistently failing at the top and Jonny Bairstow unable to do much at No 4. Manish Pandey too has been consistently average for SRH although he scored a fifty in the first game. But his low strike rate has been a issue for Hyderabad.
