Sunrisers overpower Mumbai Indians

 

Shikhar Dhawan crafted an unbeaten 52 to lead the Hyderabad Sunrisers to a seven-wicket victory over top of the table Mumbai Indians after the bowlers had stifled the Mumbai batsmen in the 48th Match of the 2017 Indian Premier League at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad.

Skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat and the Sunrisers got an early breakthrough when off-spinner Mohammed Nabi bowled Lendl Simmons for one in the second over. Siddarth Kaul then accounted for Parthiv Patel and Nitish Rana and the visitors were in trouble at 36/3 after six overs. Hardik Pandya and Sharma added sixty in eight overs before Pandya top-edged a sweep off leg-spinner Rashid Khan and was caught by Moises Henriques for fifteen. The Mumbai skipper was the only batsman that came close to being comfortable against the Sunrisers bowling.Kaul led his crew with figures of 3/24. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 2/29 but the two Afghan spinners were fantastic Nabi was very difficult to get away his four overs costing only thirteen runs and Khan grabbed 1/22. The usually high-scoring Indians were kept under control, only three batsmen reached double figures. Throughout the turmoil Sharma was resolute his 67 from 45 balls was decorated with six fours and two sixes and he was the main reason Mumbai reached 138.
