Mumbai Indians 147-8 (Evin Lewis 29, Sandeep Sharma 2-25, Siddarth Kaul 2-29) lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad151-9 (Shikhar Dhawan 45, Deepak Hooda 32*, Mayank Markande 4-23, Mustafizur Rahman 3-24) by 1 wicket.
Sunrisers Hyderabad held their nerves to edge out Mumbai Indians by one wicket from the last ball of the match in a thrilling Indian Premier League encounter at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday.
Hyderabad’s No 11, Billy Stanlake lofted Ben Cutting’s last delivery of the 20th over to eke out their second win of the tournament. Rohit Sharma’s men slipped to their second defeat in as many matches.
Chasing a modest target of 148, Hyderabad were cruising at 73/1 before an inexplicable batting collapse left them staring at defeat. It was young Deepak Hooda’s composed 32 off 25 balls that proved to be precious in the final context of the match. Hooda hit Cutting’s first delivery of the final over for a six to ease the pressure with Stanlake holding fort at the other end.
Young leg-spinner Mayank Markande (4/23 in 4 overs) once again impressed one and all with his temperament and control as his spell got Mumbai Indians back in the match despite having a modest total on board.
Man of the Match: Rashid Khan, for his miserly bowling figures of 4-0-13-1
