In the 20th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Sunrisers Hyderabad applied the pressure on Mumbai Indians with the required run rate almost touching 12.
After losing their third wicket in the sixth over, Hyderabad captain Shikhar Dhawan sensed blood and brought Dale Steyn for his third over. Steyn was at steaming in at a furious pace and another wicket should have fallen when a tame defence from Ambati Rayudu nearly found Darren Sammy at first slip. Sammy should have tried harder and it Hyderabad should have had their third wicket.
Karn Sharma was brought in for his second over and bowled a tidy over. The big money purchase, Karn was tidy and bowled a neat line that offered little scope for the batsmen to free their arms. Only five came from it. Amit Mishra was brought in for his first over in a pitch that is not aiding spinners.
