Where to follow MI vs DD live


In this match, Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Mumbai Indians by one wicket.

Contrary to the norm this season, four of the last five meetings between these two sides have been won by the team batting first.

Sunrisers Hyderabad had a good start with Wriddhiman Saha and Dhawan putting 62 runs before Saha was declared lbw off Markande's bowling.

Deepak Hooda smashed the first delivery from Ben Cutting for six and, with one needed off the final delivery, number eleven Billy Stanlake chipped it over the infield to secure victory.

Overs 4 was another good as 15 RUNS came for Mumbai Indians.Evin Lewis smacked Billy Stanlake for two fours and a six, here MI 43/1. Rohit bowled out death specialists Jasprit Bumrah and Mustafizur Rahman before the final over in an attempt to take wickets and bring Mumbai back into the game. And assuming that Kane Williamson will be largely responsible for holding his end up to build the innings, Sunrisers can not afford to have two slow scorers in their top three.

Sunrisers adopted a different strategy against Markande. As he's in his stance, I can see where he's trying to hit.

Markande made further inroads, with Dhawan and Manish Pandey (11) both guilty of skying the ball to fielders in the deep, and then Shakib chopping onto his stumps. He has taken seven wickets and even impressed his opponents. As a result, they went into the last over requiring 11 runs to win. Thanks to Hooda they achieved it. In eight overs of his IPL career, he had conceded just 46 runs and has picked up 7 wickets, thereby earning the coveted purple cap. Besides Rohit, Evin Lewis, who has two T20 hundreds against India, and the explosive Kieron Pollard would like to show their big-hitting prowess on Thursday.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar should slot back in for Sandeep Sharma, provided he is fit!

Hyderabad notched their second successive victory while Mumbai are yet to open their account despite coming close to winning on both occasions.

Afghan spin sensation Rashid Khan produced one of the most magical spells of this year's Indian Premier League. "I was a fast bowler and there was no real interest in playing", Markande told IPLT20.com.

Although at times he turns out to be expensive with his bowling, his hard-hitting ability with the bat and ability to come up with crucial breakthroughs with the ball make him a player to watch out for in their clash against Delhi. Sandeep then dismissed Suryakumar and Pradeep Sangwan off successive balls to ensure that Mumbai doesn't cross the 150-run mark.
