IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Live Updates: Natarajan returns and gets smashed for four on the first ball of the over by de Kock. Two dots before de Kock runs a bye. Surya looks to experiment and scoop Natarajan over short fine leg. That almost clipped the leg stump bails. Last ball Surya wanted to again play on the up but it did not come at the speed at which he was expecting hence played early again. Good comeback by Natarajan after the poor start. 6 off the over.
Preview: Mumbai Indians (MI) will have an edge over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) when the two teams face off in match 17 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday. Both MI and SRH are entering this game fresh from their respective wins over KXIP and CSK, but MI’s explosive batsmen will be keen to take advantage against SRH, especially with Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s likely absence.
In a big blow for the Hyderabad franchise, Bhuvneshwar injured his left thigh while bowling his final over against CSK on Friday, and was forced off the field soon after. Khaleel Ahmed stepped in to complete the over for Bhuvneshwar.
And Bhuvneshwar’s absence would mean an advantage for MI’s explosive big-hitters like Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard, who will look to make use of the short boundaries in Sharjah.
The Sharjah Cricket Stadium has been a dream land for batsmen, with Rajasthan Royals successfully defending 216 against Chennai Super Kings in September.
SRH, meanwhile, had to heavily rely on youngsters Priyam Garg (51) and Abhishek Sharma (31) as their top-order failed to fire against CSK. While David Warner (28) and Manish Pandey (29) failed to convert starts, Jonny Bairstow (0) and Kane Williamson (9) even failed to get going.
The onus will also be on Rashid Khan to get the crucial wickets, while Bhuvneshwar’s likely absence means there will be added pressure on T Natarajan and Khaleel Ahmed during the death overs.
