Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram pulled off an incredible running catch to dismiss Suryakumar Yadav against Mumbai Indians. Facing Marco Jansen, Yadav smashed the South African pacer for a glorious six on the second ball of his inning.
Then on the next ball, SKY chipped the ball to the left of mid-off, where a flying Markram was spotted taking an acrobatic catch. Markram took another stunning catch to dismiss Ishan Kishan, who seemed to score a big inning.

This catch didn't hinder MI's run-scoring as Aussie all-rounder Cameron Green scored a brilliant 64 in 40 balls. This knock included six fours and two sixes carrying the five-time champs to 192-5 in their 20 overs.
Then with the ball Mumbai continued their form with Jason Behrendorff, Riley Meredith and Piyush Chawla picking up two wickets each. At the same time, Green and Arjun Tendulkar took one wicket each.
Whereas for SRH, last game's centurion Harry Brook, failed to fire and got out at the score of nine. Mayank Agarwal managed to put up some runs while Markram also contributed with a 22-run knock. But in the end, MI bowlers held their nerves to register a 14-run win
Reacting to his Player of the Match award-winning performance, Cameron Green spoke about how he needed the first few games to find his stride. He also added that this win will give an extra boost to the team.
He said, "I think first couple of games were a learning curve for me and our team. Bit of a sticky situation (when I walked out to bat). But glad the plans came off. I am a work in progress with my bowling at the death. Obviously, we can continue with the winning momentum."
