MI vs SRH Highlights, IPL 2020 Match Today: Clinical Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 34 runs
IPL 2020 Highlights, Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): Fast bowlers Trent Boult, James Pattinson and Jasprit Bumrah picked up two wickets each, helping Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 34 runs in Match No. 17 of the 2020 IPL at the Sharjah Cricket Ground on Sunday. David Warner scored 60 off 44 balls but barring him no other batsmen could cross 30. In the first innings, Krunal Pandya hit an unbeaten 20 off 4 balls, and along with some fireworks from Kieron Pollard, took Mumbai Indians to 208/5 against batting first.

MI vs SRH Live Score, IPL 2020: GONE! David Warner falls
And Mumbai Indians are over the moon. That was the wicket they needed. A leg cutter from Pattinson and Warner edges it to short third man where Ishan Kishan pulls off the most amazing catch, diving forward.

IPL 2020 Live Updates: Genius from Pollard, taking the pace off the ball

The new batsman is Priyam Garg and along with a set David Warner, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be eyeing for a couple of big overs to get that asking rate under control a little. Kieron Pollard to bowl the 14th over. Could this be the over for SRH?18:38 hrs IST
OUT! Boult gets Williamson

MI vs SRH Live Score: Fifty for Warner
He gets there off 34 balls but it’s been a fine over from Bumrah to give away just six off the over. Just the over Rohit needed, the move has worked. The equation is this: 94 needed off 48 balls. The next three overs are going to be so important.18: 31 hrs IST
Good move from Rohit
Jasprit Bumrah returns for his second over. Just think what a wicket might do here for Mumbai Indians, especially if it’s of Warner.

SRH 115/2 after 12 overs18:28 hrs IST

IPL 2020 Live Updates: Rahul Chahar given the ball

Eight overs gone, Sunrisers 70/1
It’s been a good start so far for Sunrisers, but Warner will be a bit of a concern. He’s struggling to find the middle of his bat to balls and now the grunts are beginning to emerge as well.18:06 hrs IST
With the sun in his eyes,Hardik Pandya has put down Manish Pandey at deep point. Pollard dropped it short and Pandey went after it. Hardik running towards the ball seemed to have gotten underneath it but puts down a dolly. He has those shades on though.18:02 hrs IST
The helmet comes off
David Warner has gotten rid of his helmet, hoping to go after Krunal Pandya, fancying that over the wicket arc. Sunrisers Hyderabad get to 56/1 in the Powerplay, eight more than Mumbai Indians. Krunal Pandya continues to shoot them in.17:58 hrs IST

Early boundary for Pandey
Just second ball into his innings, Pandey spots the slower ball from Boult and thumps it down the ground for his first boundary. Good positive sing shown by the batsman. He has to make up for that dropped catch of de Kock early in the MI innings.17:51 hrs IST
OUT! First wicket down for Sunrisers
A slower bouncer from Trent Boult and Bairstow finds the fielder, Hardik Pandya, at third man. Big wicket for Mumbai Indians since Bairstow has started off with some stinging shots. He was foxed by the pace behind that ball as his one hand comes off the bat while he played that shot.17:48 hrs IST
Fine over from Pattinson...
...Keeps Warner and Bairstow on his toes. Almost had Warner out when he hit the last ball of the over high in the air, but the rub of the green goes the batsman’s way as the ball lands between three fielders converging in the deep. SRH 34/0 after 4 overs17:46 hrs IST

Bairstow hits back-to-back boundaries
He’s such a fantastic batsman, Jonny Bairstow. Jumps down to James Pattinson and pumps a boundary with a short-arm pull. Next ball, just gets a faint tickle on the ball down his legs. 12 from Pattinson’s first over as Sunrisers Hyderabad get to 20/2 after 2 overs.17:35 hrs IST

Is it enough for Sunrisers Hyderabad
Believe us or not? 209 is going to be the lowest chase at the Sharjah Cricket Ground. When was the last time you thought you’d heard 200 and lowest in the same sentence. Guess that’s the beauty of IPL. Second innings resuming shortly.17:15 hrs IST

It is safely negotiated from Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, scoring just two off it. Yes, 2 runs off the 16th over, but now that Rashid has bowled out, expect some fireworks from these two batsmen. MI 149/4 in 1616:48 hrs IST
OUT! What a catch from Manish Pandey
He’s been a little rough on the field, but that’s a thing of the past. Manish Pandey puts a full stretched dive to take a stunning catch, which sends Ishan Kishan back for 31 (23 balls). Could very well be the catch of the tournament so far.16:46 hrs IST

OUT! de Kock falls to Rashid
A breakthrough at least. Rashid Khan, bowling his third over, has dismissed Quinton de Kock for 67 (39 balls). It was a wrong one which de Kock failed to read.

OUT! Soft dismissal
Sometimes you don’t need a great delivery to get a wicket. That’s what happened. A knuckle ball down the leg.

One Thousand Three Hundred Thirty One
Yes, that’s the amount of runs the Sharjah Cricket Ground has produced so far in IPL 2020. Mumbai Indians batsmen must be licking their chops. Great opportunity for Quinton de Kock to end his barren run and get a good score here. If not here, where will he?15:21 hrs IST

Rohit Sharma explains reason to bat first
“We will bat first. It has been our strength so we are going to back that. It is a good pitch and as long as you play good cricket, the toss doesn’t really matter.

We have a quality bowling line up which is why we back ourselves to come out and puts runs on the board. We have seen few games here, you have to believe and trust your instincts when you play in grounds like these. We know it is a small ground but it also gives the bowlers an opportunity knowing that the batsmen are going to come after them. We are playing the same team.”15:13 hrs IST

Clash of two openers!
When you think of two of the most solid limited-overs openers of today’s generations, the names Rohit Sharma and David Warner come to mind. The two opening batsmen have come a long way since their verbal altercation in an ODI in Australia in 2015. Warner has mellowed since his 12-month ban, but his bat hasn’t. During the lockdown, the two openers even did a friendly Instagram Live chat. The one thing common between Warner and Rohit, besides being world-class openers is that Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians chances of winning shoot up when they score big.14:08 hrs IST

Will Warner go big today?
With scores of 36, 45 and 28, it’s not as if David Warner has not gotten starts in the IPL, barring the first match where he was run out backing too far up at the non-striker’s end. The scenario couldn’t be better for Warner to strike big. He should fancy those small Sharjah boundaries.13:54 hrs IST

Will Chris Lynn replace Quinton de Kock?
In four matches, Quinton de Kock has had scores of 33, 1, 14 and 0, and it is likely that Mumbai Indians rest him to give Chris Lynn an opportunity at the top. Lynn was sold to MI for Rs 2 crore at the IPL auction last year and given his successful record for Kolkata Knight Riders, do not count out the possibility of seeing a new opening pair walking out today.13:33 hrs IST

What is Sunrisers’ Playing XI expected to look like?

Rohit’s no so encouraging record against SRH
Rohit Sharma has starred with the bat in both the matches that Mumbai Indians have won. However, ahead of the SRH clash, a trivia might worry Rohit and his team, which is the skipper’s underwhelming record against the Sunrisers. Rohit has scored 217 runs at an average of 19.73. These are his worst returns against an active IPL team.13:12 hrs IST
The Bhuvneshwar Kumar question
Will he play, or won’t he? Bhuvneshwar Kumar pulled up twice during his run-up in the previous game against Chennai Super Kings and walked off the field with the team physio. Skipper David Warner said he “wasn’t too sure” whether Bhuvneshwar will recover in time for Sunday’s clash, and if that is the case, MI will start off with a big advantage.13:05 hrs IST
IPL 2020 MI vs SRH: Record in the previous five games
If the previous five matches are to be taken into considerations, it’s the Sunrisers Hyderabad who edge Mumbai Indians by a game, leading the score 3-2, including a hat-trick of wins.12:58 hrs IST
The last time MI and SRH went at it...
It was Match No. 51 of IPL 2019, in which Mumbai Indians tied with Sunrisers Hyderabad with both teams ending on 162/6. Quinton de Kock’s 69 led MI to the total and in response, Manish Pandey top-scored with 71 for the match to end in a tie. Come the Super Over, Mumbai Indians held their nerves and beat Sunrisers Hyderabad with Hardik Pandya hitting a six and helping MI chase nine runs with three balls left.12:51 hrs IST
MI vs SRH: Head-to-head
In all the editions of the IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians have faced each other 14 times, and as expected, there’s hardly anything to choose between them. SRH share a slight 7-6 record over MI, while one match ended in a tie.12:44 hrs IST
Sunrisers Hyderabad not too far behind
The IPL 2020 campaign did not start on the best of notes for Sunrisers Hyderabad, who lost their first two matches to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders. But two wins from two matches thereafter, against Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings have done their confidence a world of good, and the current team combination seems to be working for them. The 2016 IPL champions have shown early why they cannot be counted out at any time during the tournament.12:37 hrs IST
Mumbai Indians’ story so far in IPL 2020
It will be tough to pick a favourite between these two sides, because there isn’t much to choose from their performance in the IPL 2020 so far. Defending champions Mumbai Indians started with a defeat to Chennai Super Kings before roaring back to comprehensively beat Kolkata Knight Riders. Against RCB, they lost a tight match in the Super Over and came back strong by defeating Kings XI Punjab by 48 runs. They haven’t allowed too many losses to build on them12:30 hrs IST
