IPL 2018 Fantasy League SRH vs MI

His six off the first ball of the last over from Ben Cutting evened out the contest.

The real action unfolded in the last over.

Some other notable performances in the match were from Deepak Hooda who scored an unbeaten 32 off 25 towards the end of the match to help his side to a thrilling win.

Things weren't quite as simple as their opening win over Rajasthan Royals, however, with Thursday's one-wicket victory against Mumbai Indians going down to the final ball.

Despite Markande's 4-for and Mustafizur's 3-24, SRH managed to get over the line in this match.

The home side were cruising in their chase of 148 with Shikhar Dhawan and Wriddhiman Saha going great guns at the top.

Rookie Leg spinner Mayank Markande (4/23) and Bangladesh left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman (3/24) had Sunrisers in knots but in the end their efforts went in vain. In the very next over, Dhawan, who seemed good in the middle, was also sent packing.

Markande struck by removing both openers and Shakib Al Hasan (12), while Rahman had skipper Kane Williamson (6) caught behind. Rashid Khan (0) was the first to come but he was caught behind by Ishan off Bumrah's very next ball. Rashid Khan and Sandeep Sharma controlled at the middle and death overs to make sure that the visitors did not run away with an imposing total. The scoreboard was then reading 137/9. SRH needed 1 run on the last bowl of the match then the striking batsman Stanlake hit four and assured SRH's win.

But Mustafzur Rahaman brought them back in contention with a brilliant 19th over that cost Mumbai only a run leaving Hyderabad 11 to win off final over. E Lewis (29), Suryakumar Yadav (28) and Kieron Pollard (28) all got starts but failed to convert it to big scores.

Sunrisers invited Mumbai to bat first after winning the toss.

Siddarth Kaul kept the squeeze on in the next over and picked up two wickets in the process, the seamer removing Ishan Kishan (9) with his second ball and cleaning up Lewis when the West Indies batsman attempted to clear the ropes for a third time.

In the same over, set batsman Lewis was also dismissed.

In Kaul, Sandeep's state-mate at Punjab, Sunrisers have an equally effective bowler. In his 17 ball innings, Lewis slammed three boundaries and two sixes. Krunal Pandya (15, SR: 150) fell next to Shakib al Hasan (4-34-1) in an attempt to step up the scoring rate. Kieron Pollard (28) also tried to pace up the innings but after having a good start, he went back to the pavilion. Billy Stanlake and Deepak Hooda both of them contribute a lot into the winning, eventually it was due to their bowling and fielding and ofcourse Shikhar Dhawan's and other players batting which helped them to gain this glorified second win of the season.
