    Toss won by Sunrisers Hyderabad (decided to bowl)

    Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Mumbai Indians by 1 wicket

    Man of the Match: Rashid Khan



    Match Ends: Billy Stanlake manages to connect on the last ball and Hyderabad have stolen the match on the last ball. This is Mumbai's second defeat on the trot while as for SRH, they have now won both their matches. One of the best matches in IPL history for neutral fans to cherish. 


    Match Tied: Deepak Hooda pulled the ball and it landed just infront of Bumrah at leg slip. The match is tied now and super over now looks like a possibility. SRH need 1 off 1.


    1 Run: Deepak Hooda is back on strike after the batsmen scamper for a single as Rohit couldn't gather the ball. SRH need 2 off 2 now!


    1 Run: Stanlanke is at strike and Cutting will feel he has the upper hand here. Hooda managed to hit the ball straight but could only manage to take a single. SRH need 3 off 3.


    Dot Ball: This is priceless at the moment from Cutting as SRH now need 4 off 4. Deepak Hooda still at strike.


    SIX: Deepak Hooda you beauty! The rigt hander hits a six on the first ball of the last over off Ben Cutting and SRH now need 5 from 5. Cutting then bowls a wide and SRH surge ahead once again. SRH need 4 off 5 now.


    So this is the current scenario - Hyderabad need 11 runs to win the contest in the last over while Mumbai need 1 wicket to win. What a stunning turnaround this match has seen. Still it can be anybody's game. Brace yourselves folks!


    OUT: SRH are simply losing the plot here as Sandeep Sharma tried to hit the ball over the square leg fielder but is caught out inside the circle. SRH lose their ninth as Mustafizur picks his second of the over. Stunning stuff from Mumbai Indians. 


    OUT: Another one bites the dust as Siddharth Kaul heads back into the hut. Mustafizur affects a brilliant caught and bowled to dismiss the 8th Hyderabad batsman. SRH now need 11 off, MI need two wickets. What a thrilling finale in the offing. 


    OUT: Jasprit Bumrah has done the trick for Mumbai as he gets rid of Yusuf and Rashid on back to back deliveries. After Yusuf's wicket, Rashid hits the ball into the glouves of the keeper. SRH lose their 7th as Mumbai turn the match on its head once again. SRH need 12 off 12.


    OUT: Mumbai have finally managed to break the partnership as Yusuf Pathan loses his concentration and plays a nothing shot and the ball goes straight into the hands of Kieron Pollard who was fielding on the leg side inside the circle. SRH lose their sixth wicket. 


    Four: This is the moment that might have won SRH the match as Yusuf Pathan hits Ben Cutting for a boundary on the onside. After taking five runs from the five balls, they have sneaked in a four and SRH make it 9 runs from the over. The hosts now need 15 off 18 deliveries. 


    Chance: A run-out chance for Mumbai Indians but Deepak Hooda seems to have been saved because he dove to get inside the crease. The partnership between Yusuf and Hooda is worth 20 off 20 now and they need 21 off 22 now. Thrilling finish in the offing. 


    Hooda and Yusuf are playing sensible cricket here as they are just taking singles and doubles as they understand that is what the situation demands here. They don't need to hit the big shot as the required rate is under 6 which is less than a run a ball. One wicket here for Mumbai and they will be right back in the contest. SRH need 24 off 24


    Great Fielding: Pathan hit the ball straight over the bowler's head and it was sailing over the long on boundary ropes. Ben Cutting managed to catch hold of the ball in the air and just as the momentum was taking him over the line, he threw the ball back in. He certainly save the ball from going for a six. 7 runs came from the over as SRH now need 27 off 30.


    Hooda and Pathan are milking the singles at the moment and the good thing is that they are not playing many dot balls. Their strategy is to get the score as close as possible and not lose any more wickets. 


    Even after the fall of five wickets, SRH have two batsmen at the crease, who are both regarded as power-hitters of the game. The onus is on Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda to show their worth to their team now. SRH need 34 off 36 deliveries. 


    Stat Attack: 

    Best bowling figures in IPL 2018: -

    1.            4/23 – M Markande v SRH (tonight)

    1.            3/23 – M Markande v CSK

    2.            3/24 – H Pandya v CSK

    3.            3/36 – C Woakes v KKR

    4.            2/11 – N Rana v RCB


    OUT: Mayank Markande is simply tearing apart the Hyderabad batting line-up and he scalps the wicket of Shakib Al Hasan to pick his fourth wicket of the innings. This is also the first four-for IPL 2018. Astonishing bowling from the youngster. 


    Four: Mustafizur bowls short and wide to his countryman and Shakib dispatched it with great elan for a boundary. That will release some of the pressure that SRH are under at the moment. With that, SRH cross the 100-run mark as well. 


    OUT: Once again, Mayank Markande has done the trick as he picks the crucial wicket of Manish Pandey, who played a poor shot. Rohit takes a good high catch as SRH lose their fourth wicket. Mayank as now picked up three wicket in the innings for the second game in a row.


    Two new batsmen are at the crease now and the onus is on Manish Pandey and Shakib AL Hasan to steady the Hyderabad ship at the moment. Three quick wickets have put the pressure back on the hosts. 


    OUT: Mumbai Indians have turned the match on its head as Dhawan is the latest batsman to be dismissed. Dhawan went for the sweep shot but is caught on the square leg boundary by Bumrah. Mumbai have now lost three wickets in quick succession. 


    OUT with the help of DRS: Mustafizur rolled his fingers over the ball and the it seemed to take a thin edge of the bat of Williamson but the umpire says not out. Ishan Kishan forces Rohit to use the DRS and it shows that there was an edge and Williamson has to go. Mumbai lose their second wicket now. 


    Four: Skipper Kane Williamson is a class act and that shot from the right hander oozed class. Soft hands for Williamson and the ball goes for a boundary behind the keeper who had no chance of stopping the ball. Second four of the over for SRH. 


    Four: Saha may have fallen but Dhawan keeps going as he slams yet another boundary. Dhawan picks the ball from outside the off stump and slogs it on the onside for a four. Eighth four of the innings for the southpaw. 


    OUT: Mayak Markande comes into the attack and straight away breaks the partnership by picking the wicket of Saha. Mayank traps Saha in front of the wicket and he is abjudged LBW. First wicket of the day for Mumbai. Mustafizur now comes into the attack. 


    Four and Four and Four: There is no stopping Dhawan at the moment as he seems to be finding the gaps at will. First he caressed the ball on the off-side for a boundary and then flicked the ball for a four. A thick inside edge means Dhawan gets three fours in the over. With that the 50-runs partnership is up between Dhawan and Saha.


    Chance: Krunal Pandya was introduced into the attack and right away he makes something happen as the ball takes a edge off the bat of Saha but Kishan couldn't grab hold off it as it was traveling very fast. Luck shining brightly on SRH so far.


    Four:  Saha is looking as good as Dhawan at the moment as this time he hits Cutting for a boundary straight down the ground. This is Saha's third four of the innings, same as Dhawan thus far. In total, 10 runs came from the first Cutting over.

    PREVIEW SRH vs MI: The variety in Sunrisers Hyderabad's bowling attack will pose a few tricky questions for Mumbai Indians, when the two teams square off in an Indian Premier League encounter on Thursday. The live telecast of the match will start at 8 PM on April 12(Thursday). The match can be seen live on the Star Sports network and live streaming will be available on hotstar.com. You can also follow our live blog for ball-by-ball updates and analysis on cricketnext.com. The two teams met with contrasting fortunes in their opening games. While Sunrisers hardly broke sweat during their emphatic nine-wicket victory over Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians lost a humdinger to CSK in the tournament opener. Sunrisers is believed to have the most diverse bowling attack in the competition. They have Bhuvneshwar Kumar with his superb skill sets of seam and swing, Billy Stanlake for raw pace and Siddarth Kaul to hit the deck. Add to it Rashid Khan's fast leg-breaks and googlies are still a mystery for most batsmen while Shakib Al Hasan with his orthodox left-arm spin is miserly on most days. Mumbai Indians on the otherhand is filled with a galaxy of stars and are often known to be slow starters in a marathon tournament. Skipper Rohit Sharma would be expecting a better effort from his batsmen as 165 on a good batting track wasn't par for the course. Evin Lewis, who has two T20 hundreds against India, skipper himself and the explosive Kieron Pollard would like to show their big-hitting prowess. For MI, the biggest gain from the opening game was young leg-spinner Mayank Markande's performance on IPL debut as he accounted for Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni. "He (Markande) has got great control of whatever he does, so, I think going forward he will be a great weapon for us," MI Captain Rohit Sharma had said recently. While googly is his stock ball, it will be interesting to figure how well Markande can bowl his leg-breaks. Mumbai's another concern will be their death bowling as Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman and Mitchell McLenaghan all missed their length with Dwayne Bravo going on a rampage during the other night at Wankhede. Hardik Pandya played his heart out but his ankle injury could be a cause of worry for skipper Rohit. For Sunrisers, it was a good start under new skipper Kane Williamson, who didn't look out of place after David Warner's suspension from the league due to ball tampering charges. Shikhar Dhawan's blazing form has continued, which is the biggest shot in the arm for the 'Orange Army' apart from a bowling attack that looks potent on any surface.
