MI will aim at Continuing its Winning form while SRH is yet to Open its Winning Account!
Thanks to some phenomenal bowling from Krunal, MI took over KKR in the last two overs where Boult & Bumrah caught their nerves in the death overs to seal a thrilling 10 runs win. Just like KKR, SRH lost the match against RCB when registering victory was not a big deal for them. After bowling first David Warner’s team executed their plans perfectly against RCB. And was successful in restricting RCB to a target of 150 runs.
All was in SRH’s control as Captain Warner scored a quick-fire half-century with Manish Pandey supporting him. But the moment Warner fall prey to RCB’s bowling attack runs stopped coming in for SRH. With 35 runs needed from the last four overs, a brilliant bowling stint from Shahbaz Ahmed resulted in Manish Pandey, Bairstow & Abdul Samad all three losing their wickets one after the other. Due to lack of depth in their batting order, SRH couldn’t chase a meagre target of 150 runs & fell short of six runs in the end
