SunRisers Hyderabad plummeted to their third successive loss in IPL 2021 as they failed to return the bowling efforts and could not achieve a modest target for the second time in a row. SunRisers Hyderabad’s meltdown against the Mumbai Indians was quite similar to the one they suffered against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai, making a meal of a chase that started so impressively. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians recorded their second win in a row.

SunRisers Hyderabad kept going for runs in the initial overs as Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock built a 55-run stand in less than seven overs. But the SunRisers’ renowned bowling attack pulled things back in the middle overs by picking wickets regularly. Vijay Shankar removed Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav, while Mujeeb Ur Rahman dismissed De Kock and Ishan Kishan.

Kieron Pollard finished with an unbeaten 35 and provided the final flourish by striking two sixes, setting the SunRisers a competitive 151 to win. SunRisers Hyderabad started outstandingly as they tweaked their opening pair, getting Jonny Bairstow at the top with David Warner. The destructive duo worked their way to 67 in less than eight overs. Krunal Pandya began unlocking the game as Jonny Bairstow struck the stumps with his back leg.

Rahul Chahar hit back with a couple of wickets, while Hardik Pandya affected the run-out of David Warner. By the end of the 15th over, the Orange Army were five down and needed a stiff 47 off 30 deliveries. Vijay Shankar delivered some lusty blows to bring it down to a highly achievable task. Hardik pegged them back once again by affecting another run-out of Abdul Samad in Trent Boult’s over, followed by Japsrit Bumrah putting the final nail in the coffon by dismissing Shankar in the second last over. With 17 runs required off the final over, the Orange Army got bowled out for 137.
