Navi Mumbai, May 17
Rahul Tripathi batted like a man on a mission before Umran Malik sizzled with his pace as Sunrisers Hyderabad kept their slim IPL playoffs hopes alive with a three-run win over Mumbai Indians here today.
Tripathi scored 76 from 44 balls to guide Sunrisers Hyderabad to 193/6. He was complemented by Priyam Garg (42) and Nicholas Pooran (38).
Malik (3/23 in three overs) then produced a sensational performance, while the seasoned Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/26 in four overs) bowled a wicket-maiden in the crucial 19th over to stop MI at 190/7 despite the best efforts by Rohit Sharma (48), Ishan Kishan (43) and Tim David (46).
The victory keeps SRH in the playoffs race on paper as they move up to 12 points. They need to win their last game and hope for other results to go their way.
Brief scores: SRH: 193/6 (Tripathi 76, Garg 42; Ramandeep 3/20); MI: 190/7 (Rohit 48, David 46; Malik 3/23). — PTI
