Rashid and Kaul sink Mumbai in chase of 119


Sunrisers Hyderabad 118 (Williamson 29, Yusuf 29, Markande 2-15) beat Mumbai Indians 87 (Suryakumar 34, Kaul 3-23, Rashid 2-11) by 31 runs

Defending 118 – their second-lowest total in IPL history – a depleted Sunrisers Hyderabad attack systematically dismantled Mumbai Indians for 87 at the Wankhede Stadium, to hand the hosts their fifth loss in six games. Sunrisers’ win was also the second-lowest total successfully defended in the IPL, and only the third time all 20 wickets had fallen in the tournament’s 11-season history. Mumbai’s 87 was their lowest ever IPL score.

Legspinner Rashid Khan‘s 2 for 11 – a spell that included 16 dot balls, six of which comprised a maiden over – stifled Mumbai’s chase in the middle, after which their Indian fast bowlers – Siddarth Kaul and Basil Thampi – ran through the hosts’ lower order. What made Sunrisers’ bowling effort all the more remarkable was the absence of the injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Billy Stanlake from their XI.
