Mumbai Indians have made a rocky start to their chase of 172, managing 32 runs for the loss of three wickets at the end of the sixth over against Sunrisers Hyderabad in this crucial IPL 2014 encounter at Dubai. After Hyderabad piled up the rather huge total of 172 for five, Mumbai will be hoping for some brilliance from their middle-order to successfully chase the target.

 

Chasing Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 172 for five to win their first IPL 7 encounter, Mumbai Indians didn’t start off on the brightest notes. They had a new opening pair in the form of Ben Dunk, who has replaced Michael Hussey in the line-up and Rohit Sharma, who promoted himself up the order to bring some change in fortunes.

 

But the ploy didn’t really work out for Mumbai as they lost their captain in the second over. Bhuvneshwar Kumar swung the ball into Rohit, and it crashed into his stumps breaking through his defence. Mumbai’s troubles didn’t end there. The out-of-form Corey Anderson replaced Rohit Sharma in the middle. But the New Zealander’s fortunes failed to change as he fell to Dale Steyn in the third over. He tried to duck under a not-too-high bouncer from Steyn, but ended up looping an easy catch to Naman Ojha.

 

Bhuvneshwar bowled well in tandem alongside Steyn. He followed up Steyn’s magnificent third over with an equally good fourth over. The Indian seamer conceded just a wide off the fourth over.

 

Leg-spinner Karn Sharma then replaced Steyn in the attack. Dunk welcomed him with a sweet uppish straight drive over mid-off for four. Dunk definitely liked the entry of Sharma into the attack, as he hit him for two fours in the leg-spinner’s first over. Replacing Bhuvneshwar from the other end was Darren Sammy. Sammy too got into the wickets column as he got rid of the dangerous-looking Dunk.
