MI vs. SRH in the 2024 IPL Highlights of today’s play: must-watch video, pivotal moments, match analysis, statistics, and more

In Match 55 of the IPL 2024, the Mumbai Indians defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets with sixteen deliveries remaining.

The game that took place at Wankhede Stadium wasn’t exactly a run-fest, unlike what we had seen at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium just six weeks prior.

After being chosen to bat first, Sunrisers Hyderabad never looked comfortable and could only muster 173/8, mostly because their Australian players, Travis Head and Pat Cummins, contributed rather well with the bat. The ever-dependable Jasprit Bumrah made a reappearance with thrifty stats, demonstrating that he was the most frugal of the group, while the opening pair of Nuwan Thushara and rookie Anshul Kamboj received considerable attention. Hardik Pandya, the captain, and Piyush Chawla each returned with three wickets.

After winning their first three with just 31 runs scored, SRH put the Mumbai Indians in a difficult situation as they pursued the ball. Suryakumar Yadav’s brilliant and fierce 102* (51) helped his team to a seven-wicket victory, but it was his valiant efforts that saw MI over the finish line. Tilak Varma was the ideal foil, striking 37 off 32.

1. Both leaders of the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad, David

Harding and Andrew Cummins, respectively, gave their all for their teams. In the first innings, both players were excellent. Hardik, who had been struck for 22 from his first two overs, recovered well to take the vital wicket of Nitish Kumar Reddy with the first delivery of his third over. He scalped two in his last to put SRH on the defensive. When Cummins entered the field in the sixteenth over, his team was struggling at 124/7. His late-inning blitz with the bat lifted SRH to a respectable total of 173/8, even though they didn’t seem to have a chance to reach 150 at one time.

2. Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivers another outstanding performance.

The IPL veteran, who had given up nine runs in the opening over of the game, returned with great skill. His next was an exquisitely timed maiden over to Naman Dhir, where he tied the record set by Praveen Kumar with 14 maidens in IPL history. In his third over, Bhuvneshwar’s penultimate delivery of the stint was mowed over long-on for a maximum, disrupting Dhir’s statistics. Dhir’s torturous stay at the crease was over after a nine-ball duck. Still, for the hundredth time, it was a spectacular demonstration of seam-bowling by the maestro.

3. For SKY, the sky is the limit.

With his team struggling at 31/3 in 4.1 overs, it was up to the hitters to step up and prevent Mumbai from losing this IPL season. Suryakumar Yadav, a local boy, took on the assignment and did it brilliantly! He got going right away, dominating the bowlers and showing special affection for Marco Jansen, whom he crushed for a massive 32 runs in the nine deliveries the tall, thin South African faced. His side earned a rare victory in the present IPL with a 51-ball, 102-run effort that proved to be the difference between the two teams. It was his second IPL century and sixth in T20 cricket.
