Mumbai Indians produced another remarkable performance with the ball as they defended a modest target of 151 against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday. After winning the toss, MI managed to post a total of 150 with the help of Kieron Pollard’s late flourish (35* off 22). SRH openers started brightly and looked like chasing the total but post Bairstow’s dismissal, they lost their path while chasing and ended up losing the game by margin of 13 runs. Bumrah just conceded 14 runs in his 4 overs and Rahul Chahar was brilliant with the ball as well with figures of 3/19.
Let us have look at some of the numbers from this game:
3 – For the first time ever in IPL history SRH have ended up losing their first three matches of the season.
