Mumbai:

Sunrisers Hyderabad prevails in a high-scoring thriller at the Wankhede Stadium and stays alive in the Top 4 race. After being put in to bat first, Hyderabad shined throughout the innings with Rahul Tripathi scoring his third half-century of the season, supported by knocks from Garg at the top and Pooran in the middle to help the Sunrisers set Mumbai a target of 194 to chase. In the chase, Mumbai got off to the perfect start with their openers putting on 95-runs for the first wicket, after which Umran Malik struck thrice to pull back the game for Sunrisers. With 45 needed from the last three overs, Tim David smacked four maximums in the 18th Over to bring the equation down to 19 from 12 balls, but a wicket maiden from Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the 19th Over ensured that Sunrisers Hyderabad crossed the finish line and won by 3 runs.

Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians Captain: “Till about the second last over I thought we had it, unfortunate runout there of Tim David. Credit to Sunrisers, they held their nerve pretty well at the back end. We wanted to try a few things while keeping one eye on the future. We wanted certain guys to bowl under pressure in certain situations of the game but I thought they batted pretty well to get 193. The way we pulled things back at the end was very good. Just want to tick off the boxes and finish off on a high note in the last game. We will try everything we can from our side. If there is an opportunity to try out new guys we will definitely look to do that as well.”

Kane Williamson, Sunrisers Hyderabad Captain: “Nice to break the losing streak, had a few games where momentum wasn’t on our side and we couldn’t wrestle it back. All in all a very good performance and a lot of learning to come out of it. Tripathi is a seriously special player, he comes out and takes the momentum away. Umran always bowls quick, which is obviously a strength and weapon for our side, got an amazing skill set, and if he can channel, he can turn a match as we saw. Priyam is a seriously talented cricketer, great that he could get the opportunity today, he’s one of those players we’re going to see a lot more of, got a really good head on his shoulders, a lot of potential but a lot of skill as well. Our death bowling has been a strength of ours and Bhuvi’s one of the top death bowlers of the tournament, his contribution today and to bowl a maiden is an amazing and a match-winning moment really.”

Rahul Tripathi is the Player of the Match.

Rahul Tripathi: “I’ve enjoyed batting at three. If the ball is there and I can take it on, I will definitely go for the shot. If it’s not there then I’ll just look to take those singles-doubles. To win games is more important, happy I could do that today. In T20 there cannot be a moment where you can slow down. Every ball is an event so I just think what could be the best result.”
