IPL-2018: Disciplined Mumbai restrict Hyderabad to 118
Mumbai, April 24 - Mumbai Indians rode on a disciplined effort on the field to restrict Sunrisers Hyderabad to a paltry 118 in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede Stadium here on Tuesday.
Confusions in the middle marred the tourists even as Mumbai kept their dominance throughout and did not allow the Sunrisers to bounce back at any stage of the innings. This was interestingly the lowest total in this IPL.
Put in to bat, the Sunrisers failed to recover from the dreadful start, of being reduced to 46/4 inside the powerplay, with Shikhar Dhawan (5), Wriddhiman Saha (0), Manish Pandey (16) and Shakib Al Hasan (2) all back in the hut inside the first six overs.
Skipper Kane Williamson raged a lone battle with a fighting 21-ball 29, laced with five hits to the fence before veteran Baroda batsman Yusuf Pathan (29 off 33 balls; 4x2, 6x1) took on the mantle, despite losing his partners at regular intervals.
Dhawan, who returned to the playing XI after missing the previous game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), looked uncomfortable after being hit on his thigh and was bowled by Mitchell McClenaghan the very next ball.
