    Here’s Kaustubh Mayekar’s match report: IPL 2017: MI pip SRH by 4 wickets in match 10

    That’s all for today. Do join us for tomorrow’s match between KKR and KXIP, which will begin at 8 PM. Till then, goodbye.

  • 12:00 AM IST

    Bumrah: this ground is difficult to bowl. We stuck to our plans. If you try too much you may go for runs. You need to stick to one or two variations. Always beneficial when Malinga is around. He always has a lot of experience to share with us. Nowadays we have to practice with the wet balls, with the dew going around.

  • 11:59 PM IST

    Ravi Shastri forgets to announce the man of the match, but in the end realises it and announces that Jasprit Bumrah is the man of the match for his brilliant 3 for 24.

  • 11:57 PM IST

    Rohit: Was a good platform to showcase our talent with the ball. Good effort from the bowlers to restrict SRH to 158. Lot of credit to the bowlers. We stuck to our plans. We knew Warner’s and Dhawan’s strengths and weaknesses so was setting field according to it. Great performance on the field and credit to the batters for finishing it off. Still early days, but we have learnt a lot from the three matches. Can’t ask for anything else from our players. Krunal and Hardik are very expressive and it brings out the best out of them. We love watching them from the dressing room, hope they continue. I’ll be back stronger in the upcoming games.

  • 11:53 PM IST

    A morale boosting win for MI. As far as SRH are concerned, this is the first loss of the season for them. But MI never looked in any sort of trouble in their chase. Krunal Pandya however changed the complexion of the game with his breezy innings. MI will be happy having won two matches in a row and it was Nitish Rana once again, who played a calm innings of 45 off 36 to ease MI to a win. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan were probably the two face saving performers with the ball finishing with 3 for 21 and 1 for 19 respectively.

  • 11:49 PM IST

    Here are some of the reactions to MI’s win:

  • 11:48 PM IST

    Warner: We probably 20 runs short. It’s a tough place to defend. A lot of balls went to the fielders when we were batting. Credit to the bowlers. Tough circumstances here with the dew. I was wondering how Rashid was going to handle the due. He practiced by bowling with wet balls. It’s a tough loss today.

  • 11:43 PM IST

    MI 159/6 in 18.4 overs, Target 159: Mustafizur into the attack, This ideally should be the final over of the match. If Mustafizur can take this match to the final over, that will be an achievement in itself. But he does not do it and MI win this match by 4 wickets and register their second win of the season. A comfortable win in the end for the hosts.

  • 11:39 PM IST

    MI 155/6 in 18 overs, Target 159: Bhuvi into the attack. OUT! Krunal’s little cameo comes to an end. A full toss and Krunal is unable to connect that, holes out in the deep mid-wicket region. He is dismissed for a 20-ball 37. But he has done the damage and SRH will need a miracle from here to win. Krunal’s brother Hardik is the new batsman. FOUR! Rana clears the mid off fielder and collects yet another boundary. Rana has played extremely well. He would have dearly loved to see MI home from here. But his stumps have been rattled, but he has played a good hand. Gone for 45 off 36. Bhuvi finishes with 3 for 21 from his 4 overs. What a spell!

  • 11:34 PM IST

    Agree with Harsha Bhogle?

  • 11:33 PM IST

    MI 149/4 in 17 overs, Target 159: Cutting comes back into the attack. SIX! Krunal wants to finish this game off in a hurry. He pulls Cutting over deep mid-wicket and the finds the boundary through covers. That surely has put this game to rest. FOUR! Short again from Cutting and this time Krunal pulls it over the wicketkeeper. Comes off the glove. 15 coming off that over from Cutting. MI need just 10 more off 18 balls.

  • 11:29 PM IST

    A brilliant start to his IPL career:

  • 11:28 PM IST

    MI 134/4 in 16 overs, Target 159: Ashish Nehra bowls the 16th over. SIX! Krunal Pandya breaks the shackles and smashes Nehra over the long on fence. Nehra has been on the expensive side today. FOUR! Krunal then flicks the ball to the fine leg fence. Big over this. This is perhaps the over that swings the match completely in MI’s favour. MI need 25 off 24. Nehra finishes with 1 for 46 from his 4 overs.

  • 11:24 PM IST

    5 more overs to go. Will MI complete an easy win or will SRH somehow get over the line in this match?

  • 11:21 PM IST

    MI 121/4 in 15 overs, Target 159: Rashid into his final over. He has been the pick of the bowlers so far. He concedes just one boundary in his spell, which came of the penultimate delivery and is currently the holder of the Purple Cap as well. Not a bad day for him. He finishes with figures of 1 for 19 in his 4 overs. Time for the strategic time-out. MI need 38 0ff 30.

  • 11:18 PM IST

    He won’t do it again, will he?

  • 11:17 PM IST

    MI 112/4 in 14 overs, Target 159: Bhuvi bowls his 3rd over. OUT! Bhuvi gets the big wicket of Pollard for run-a-ball 11. He pulls a short ball straight to Dhawan at square leg. is that the opening SRH need? Krunal Pandya is the new batsman. MI need 47 more from 36. Rana going strong at 39 off 32, He will be key for MI from here.

  • 11:11 PM IST

    MI 108/3 in 13 overs, Target 159: After an expensive first over Mustafizur is back into the attack. SIX! Pollard just flicks the bal over the square leg fence. Just an incredible hit from Pollard. His strong wrists coming into to play here. And that also brings up the 100 for MI. 11 from the Fizz’s second over. MI need 51 off 42 from here.

  • 11:06 PM IST

    MI 97/3 in 12 overs, Target: 159, After the singles, Rana ends the over with a powerful boundary off Nehra to backward point. That will keep Pollard on strike for the next over.

  • 10:59 PM IST

    MI 90/3 in 11 overs, Target: 159: Rashid bowls his 3rd over. Again a wonderful over from the leg-spinner. Batsmen are yet to get a boundary off his bowling. MI will look to play Rashid out. He has just 1 more over left. MI need 69 off 54.

  • 10:56 PM IST

    MI 85/3 in 10 overs, Target 159: Hooda bowls his second over. The pressure builds on Parthiv as the batsmen are kept quiet from both ends. He just chips the bll to Bhuvneshwar at long on. Parthiv’s good innings of 24-ball 39 finally comes to an end, much to the relief of SRH. Hooda with the crucial breakthrough. Kieron Pollard is the new batsman. However, Rana sweeps the ball over the square leg fence off the final delivery.

  • 10:51 PM IST

    MI 76/2 in 9 overs, Target 159: Ben Cutting into the attack. He starts off right on the money. Keeps the batsmen quiet. Parthiv and Rana are not able to get many runs out of it. But MI are still very much on top. They need 83 off 66. Just 3 singles off Cutting’s first over.

  • 10:44 PM IST

    MI 73/2 in 8 overs, Target 159: Deepak Hooda into the attack. FOUR! Rana sweeps Hooda to the fence off the third ball. Sweeps the ball with authority. Decent over for MI. 9 runs coming off it. It is time for the strategic time out. MI need 86 off 72 from here.

  • 10:40 PM IST

    MI 64/2 in 7 overs, Target 159: Rashid continues. Batsmen are happy to get singles off Rashid and maybe take on the bowler at the other end. Another excellent over from Rashid, the batsmen not being able to put him away with ease. Just 3 off it.

  • 10:37 PM IST

    MI 61/2 in 6 overs, Target 159: Mustafizur Rahman into the attack. WOW! First ball from the Fizz and Rana ducks but smashes the ball over the fine leg fence. Was that intentional? Don’t think so. However, Parthiv is unperturbed with the wickets falling at the other end. He cuts Mustafizur to the fence with ease and goes past 2,000 IPL runs. He follows that with a cheeky lob over the wicketkeeper. FOUR more, this time through fine leg. 19 off that over.

  • 10:31 PM IST

    MI 42/2 in 5 overs, Target 159: Rashid Khan into the attack. Single off the first ball takes Rohit to his highest score of IPL 2017. Rashid has icked up 5 wickets in his 2 games before this. OUT! A big scalp for Rashid as Rohit has been trapped leg before. What a tournament this young man is having. This is the wicket SRH would would have been after and they have gotten rid of the skipper cheaply. Nitish Rana is the new batsman. Just 3 runs and a wicket from that over.

  • 10:26 PM IST

    MI 39/1 in 4 overs, Target 159: Nehra continues. BOWLED HIM! A slow ball from Nehra, Buttler swings across the line and his wickets are shattered. Buttler goes for 14 off 11. Skipper Rohit Sharma walks in at No. 3. Rohit is off the mark with a three after he punches the ball off the back foot on the off side. FOUR! Just a flick from Parthiv and the ball beats the man at mid-on with ease. FOUR more off the final ball from Parthiv to end the over. He is looking in superb touch today.

  • 10:20 PM IST

    MI 28/0 in 3 overs, Target 159: Bhuvneshwar continues. FOUR! Short and wide and Buttler pounces on it to collect one more boundary. A mixed over from Bhuvi. A couple of good deliveries, but some short, wide and some on the pads. The left-right combination taking its toll on Bhuvi perhaps. 7 from that over.

  • 10:16 PM IST

    MI 21/0 in 2 overs, Target 159: Nehra bowls the second over. FOUR! Inside edge and Buttler collects yet another boundary. Lucky. FOUR! Parthiv Patel now joins in. Punches it off the back foot and gets his first boundary. Parthiv goes on the leg side, but Ben Cutting cuts the ball in the deep at deep mid-wicket. Both batsmen looking in excellent touch at the moment. FOUR! Parthiv then guides the ball past the ‘keeper to end the over. 15 off that over.

  • 10:11 PM IST

    MI 6/0 in 1 over, Target 159: Bhuvneshwar Kumar opens the bowling for SRH. MI begin their chase with Parthiv Patel and Jos Buttler. Single off the second delivery from Parthiv and then Jos Buttler just flicks h=the ball through mid-wicket to collect the first boundary of the innings. A good over from Bhuvi nevertheless.

Good Evening. शुभ संध्या! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket blog and updates of Match 10 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The match will be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. I, Pramod Ananth, will bring you all the live posts from the match. After successfully completing the Chris Lynn challenge in their previous match, MI face a bigger one this time as they clash against SRH, the only team which is yet to taste defeat in this edition. However, MI will be keen to exploit the home conditions in their favour. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD, Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Match 10

The task gets difficult with the return of SRH’s pacer Mustafizur Rahman. So far SRH have shown clinical performance with their batsmen as well as bowlers doing well and looking set to clinch the second title. All eyes will be on the Afghan youngster Rashid Khan who earned the Purple Cap in the previous match. The only task for SRH will be to keep their momentum going in away matches as well. SRH had middle-order concerns in the previous season. But with Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh and Deepak Hooda adding valuable runs in this season, that problem looks to be sorted. Amongst the pacers, Ben Cutting has not got much under his belt and could make way for Mustafizur.

MI’s show in the matches so far has been similar – a good start, followed by fall of wickets and the pressure mounting on lower-order batsmen. As for the bowlers, MI’s Mitchell McClenaghan is yet to fire in this series with the ball and the side would consider whether to persist with the New Zealander for another game or not.

But the spinners have done their job well and MI will hope that Harbhajan Singh as well as Krunal Pandya continue their form in this game as well.

The head-to-head record between these teams is evenly poised, but SRH would want to break the jinx and secure their maiden victory at Wankhede.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, Lendl Simmons, Vinay Kumar, Siddhesh Lad, Jagadeesha Suchith, Hardik Pandya, Tim Southee, Jitesh Sharma, Deepak Punia, Saurabh Tiwary, Nicholas Pooran, Mitchell Johnson, Karn Sharma, Asela Gunaratne, Krishnappa Gowtham, Kulwant Khejroliya, Ambati Rayudu
