IPL-10: Mumbai aim to deny Sunrisers hattrick of wins

13 April 2017

The Pandya brothers have been performing well in the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League, helping Mumbai Indian win in a tight contest against Kolkata Knight Riders. The wicketkeeper-batsmen was in top form and dealt in boundaries.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya also joined the celebration after taking the scalp of SRH star campaigner Yuvraj Singh (5). He smashed an unbeaten 35 off 15 balls in the first game against Rising Pune Supergiant but his effort went in vain as Mumbai lost the match by 7 wickets thanks to a superb knock from Steve Smith.

There was so much buzz around the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad before the season began for various reasons. The first week has seen some of the memories of the last year repeat themselves and one of them was the champions of the last year, winning the first two matches this year too.

Earlier, David Warner's 49 and Shikhar Dhawan's 48 were the significant contributions in an otherwise modest 158 for 8 on batting friendly conditions at the Wankhede Stadium.

Bowlers led-by; experienced Harbhajan Singh along with Krunal Pandya and Pollard will be very crucial to containing the leakage of runs during the middle of the innings.

The left-handed paceman helped Sunrisers win their maiden IPL title in 2016.

One of these asked why he should be selected by the Browns with the top pick and he had a meaningful response. If the Browns don't select him, they have already been warned about what might happen by Garrett himself.

Firstly though, MI will have to think hard about what is their best team combination.

In the second innings, Mumbai batsmen started it with few hick-ups but in the later half, it seemed to be a cake walk for them as gradually they took the victory away from the arms of Hyderabad. Pacers Ashish Nehra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Henriques have complimented each other well and will surely test the Mumbai batsmen.

Sources close to the development confirmed that both Shakib and Mustafizur would, in all likelihood, skip the national team's 10-day training camp in Sussex, which is slated to begin in the last week of April.

Williamson has yet to feature in the SunRisers' opening two games of the IPL despite being the third ranked T20 player in the world.

Mumbai won the toss and opted to field in what turned out to be a wise decision, given the recent success of teams batting second at this ground. Hopes that they will come good.
