Mumbai Indians are currently locking their horns with the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium and the game is turning out to be another interesting match of the ongoing tournament.
After opting to bat, Mumbai Indians lost their skipper Rohit Sharma early. However, Suryakumar Yadav held the game and entertained everyone with 27 off 18 balls but it was the 78-run partnership between Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan which brought the much-needed momentum to the game.
De Kock smashed his first half-century of the season and was dismissed with 65 runs off 39 balls before SRH dismissed him and later Ishan Kishan as well in quick successions. Ishan Kishan was dismissed by a stunning catch caught by Manish Pandey in the deep wicket. Hardik Pandya also played a stunning cameo by scoring 28 off 19 balls, where he smashed 2 sixes and 2 fours.
However, the game wasn’t over yet and the fans were yet to see a few more fireworks from the bat of Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya.
When you prepare for chapter 5️⃣ & 6️⃣ but chapter 7️⃣ comes out of the syllabus 😉
20* off 4 👉 What a finish from Krunal 🔥

In the last four balls of the innings, Krunal Pandya made a blockbuster entry and with the help of fours and sixes, he scored an unbeaten 20. Big hitter Kieron Pollard also made us witness some fireworks as together they took the target runs to 208/5.
