It was a nail-biting affair for the Mumbai Indians as they took on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in a closely-contested affair and at the end of the day, it was a fine display of grit, gumption and belief by the Men in Blue as they clinched their third straight win, leaving the Sunrisers in the dark. Batting first Mumbai posted 192 on the scorecard, thanks to a handful of impeccable displays.
Cameron Green fired a 40-ball-64 to spearhead a late Mumbai charge while Ishan Kishan’s calculated knock at the top of the innings helped him garner 38 from 31 balls. Tilak Varma’s quickfire 37 was another emphatic display of a wide array of strokes that helped Mumbai Indians to garner 192 batting first.
This is how the Mumbai Indians secured a victory over SRH
The Sunrisers had a shaky start but then collective combinations in the centre allowed them to fight back and fight really hard as there was a slender chance of them pulling off a remarkable turnaround of affairs. Mayank Agarwal seemed in a pretty good touch as he managed to score 48 while Heinrich Klaasen showcased his exemplary batting class with a rollicking 36.

However, the man who actually stole the show, in the end, was none other than a budding Arjun Tendulkar who would come for that final over where 20 runs were required and would only concede 5 runs, which helped the Indians script their third straight win as the campaign that was initially in shambles soon started finding meaning and how.
Here is what Sachin had to tell his son
Riley Meredith, Jason Behrendorff and Piyush Chawla plundered 6 wickets between them that left the chase reeling. With all said and done, the world was pretty happy with the fashion in which Arjun Tendulkar pulled off that final over, conceding only 5 runs and bagging a crucial wicket.
Sach had a very special message for Arjun, adding, “A superb all-round performance by Mumbai Indians once again. Cameron Green was impressed with both bat & ball. Ishan & Tilak’s batting is as good as it gets! The IPL is getting more interesting every day. Great going boys! And finally a Tendulkar has an IPL wicket!”
