SRH vs MI IPL 2021: Mumbai Indians win but fail to qualify, Sunrisers Hyderabad lost the matchy by 42 runs

Fifties from Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav helped Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 42 runs in the last league match of the Indian Premier League here on Friday but failed to qualify for the playoffs. Chasing Mumbai’s target of 236 runs, Hyderabad’s team could only manage 193 runs for eight wickets.

Mumbai had to restrict Sunrisers to less than 65 runs to qualify for the playoffs. Mumbai and Kolkata Knight Riders shared 14 points but the Rohit Sharma-led side finished fifth due to a poor net run rate (0.116). Knight Riders finished fourth with a better net run rate (0.587). Sunrisers’ team finished last in the eight-team table with six points.

Manish Pandey (69 not out in 41 balls, seven fours, two sixes), Jason Roy (34) and Abhishek Sharma (33) played useful innings for Sunrisers. For Mumbai, James Neesham took 28, Jasprit Bumrah 39 and Nathan Coulter-Nile took two wickets for 40 runs. Ishaan 84 off 32 balls while Suryakumar made 82 off 40 balls as Mumbai made 235 for nine, the team’s highest score in IPL history. This is also the highest score of IPL 2021. Ishaan hit 11 fours and four sixes in his innings while Suryakumar hit 13 fours and three sixes.

Mumbai’s previous highest score was 223 for six against Kings XI in the 2017 season. Jason Roy (34) and Abhishek Sharma (33) chasing the target, adding 60 runs in five overs, dashed Mumbai’s hopes of a place in the playoffs. Trent Boult gave the first blow to Hyderabad by getting Roy caught by Krunal Pandya. The team scored 70 runs for one wicket in the power play.

Neesham then got Abhishek caught by Coulter-Nile. Pandey, who took charge of the team due to injury to regular captain Kane Williamson, hit four and six in successive deliveries from Krunal Pandya. Piyush Chawla gave Hyderabad the third blow by getting Mohammad Nabi (02) caught by Kieron Pollard. Abdul Samad (02) completed the team’s century in the ninth over with a run, but in the next over, Neesham was caught by Pollard. Pandey and Priyam Garg then took the innings forward.

Garg hit fours and sixes in successive deliveries from Neesham while Pandey did the same with Coulter-Nile. Sunrisers needed 80 runs to win in the last five overs. Jasprit Bumrah then dismissed Garg (29). Pandey completed his fifty in 31 balls with a boundary off Bumrah. Coulter-Nile got Jason Holder (01) caught by Boult while Wriddhiman Saha (02) was also dismissed. Bumrah sent Rashid Khan (09) to the pavilion and the Hyderabad team fell far behind the target. Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat, after which Ishaan gave the team a stormy start.

After hitting a six on Mohammad Nabi in the first over, Ishan hit four consecutive fours on Siddharth Kaul in the next over. Ishaan took the team’s score beyond 50 runs in the fourth over with a six on Jason Holder. He hit two more boundaries in the last two balls of the over and completed his half-century in just 16 balls, which is the fastest fifty of IPL 2021. Ishaan is only the second batsman to score a fifty in the first four overs of an IPL innings. Earlier, Punjab Kings captain Lokesh Rahul has done this feat twice.

Rashid Khan ended the 80-run partnership of the first wicket by getting Rohit caught by Nabi in the sixth over. He scored 18 runs. Mumbai scored 83 for one wicket in the power play. Ishan took the team’s score beyond 100 runs in the eighth over with a six on Rashid. Hardik Pandya (10), sent up in the batting order, caught Roy off Holder’s ball. Young fast bowler Umran Malik dealt a big blow to Mumbai in the next over by getting Ishaan caught by wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha. Abhishek Sharma gave a double blow to Mumbai by sending Pollard (13) and James Neesham (00) to the pavilion in successive deliveries.

After this, Suryakumar took the front, hitting four and six in successive deliveries of Kaul. Suryakumar also hit a six on Rashid but this leg-spinner got Krunal Pandya (09) caught by Nabi. Suryakumar hit three fours on Kaul in the 17th over and during this he also completed half-century in 24 balls and took the team’s score beyond 200 runs. Holder sent Nathan Coulter-Nile (03) to the pavilion but Suryakumar hit fours and sixes off his successive deliveries and then Umran was also hit for three consecutive fours in the next over.
