Highlights, IPL 2019, SRH vs MI Match 19:Despite a batting failure, Alzarri Joseph’s sensational six-wicket haul guided Mumbai Indians to a massive 40-run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Saturday. Joseph (6/12), the 22-year-old Caribbean, not only helped Mumbai win, but he also rewrote the record books after registering the best ever bowling figure in the league’s history. Defending a paltry total of 137, debutant Joseph was the key architect behind Mumbai’s exceptional win as the pacer shattered the Hyderabad batting line-up which fell like a pack of cards. The other Mumbai bowlers — Rahul Chahar (2/21), Jasprit Bumrah (1/16) and Jason Behrendorff (1/28) — also impressed with some economical spells. Chasing the target, the hosts got off to a decent start with their scorecard reading 27 for no loss in the initial three overs. However, Rahul Chahar started the proceedings for Mumbai after bagging the wicket of Jonny Bairstow (16 off 10) before David Warner (15 off 13) became a victim of Joseph with just 33 runs on board. (SCORECARD)
HIGHLIGHTS, SRH vs MI MATCH 19 in HYDERABAD
23.24 IST: OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! He does get a six-fer. Best figures by a bowler in the Indian Premier League. What a performance by the youngster. Outstanding stuff. He lands this one on a length and it is outside off. Kaul hangs his bat out, the ball kisses the outside edge and de Kock behind makes no mistake. All smiles in the Mumbai camp as THEY HAVE WON BY 40 RUNS! Mumbai Indians (136/7) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (96-all out) by 40 runs. Joseph 6/12, Chahar 2/21
23.20 IST: OUT! Alzarri Joseph picks up a five-for on his IPL debut, Bhuvi departs for 2. Or he would just look to shuffle across in the hope to find a boundary but miss with his flick shot and see his middle stump get uprooted. FIFER FOR ALZARRI! That too on debut, how better could you start your Indian T20 League career. They do check for the no ball but AJ is fine. He now has 5 balls to take a six-fer. SRH 91/9 in 17.1 overs, need 46 runs to win vs MI (136/7)
23.18 IST: OUT! Jasprit Bumrah removes Mohammad Nabi for 11. That is probably the final nail in the coffin. Bumrah gets rid of Nabi. Hits the deck hard and lands it on middle, the ball zips through. Nabi is way too late in the pull shot. It goes off the top edge towards mid off and Rohit takes it with ease. Sunrisers Hyderabad 90/8 in 16.5 overs, need 47 runs to win vs Mumbai Indians
23.13 IST: OUT! That’s a four-for for Alzarri Joseph. Two-in-two for Joseph and it is Mumbai’s game to lose now! The short ball does the trick again for him. It is on the body and rushes onto the batsman. Rashid looks to pull by taking his eyes off the ball. The ball takes the top edge, then hits the shoulder and lobs beside the pitch. Joseph runs towards it and takes it. Nabi has to do it by himself. Needs to replicate what Pollard did. On the other hand, AJ is on a hat-trick on his debut. Sunrisers Hyderabad 89/7 in 16 overs, need 48 runs to win vs Mumbai Indians
23.09 IST: OUT! Alzarri Joseph removes Deepak Hooda for 20. Third for Joseph. You miss, I hit. Full and straight. Hooda swings across the line but misses. The furniture behind is disturbed. Hooda, the batsman who was set walks back. SRH 88/6 in 15.4 overs, need 49 runs to win vs MI (136/7)
23.04 IST: SIX! Brilliant hit by Nabi, that’s outta here. Outrageous! It is short and it is slower in pace. Nabi stands tall and then flat-bats it over the long off fence. Spoils what was a top over till then. Hyderabad 84/5 in 15 overs, need 53 runs to win vs Mumbai (136/7)
22.53 IST: FOUR! Short and wide and it has been put away! A much-needed boundary for the hosts. It is short and outside off. Hooda cuts it through point and it races away.
22.51 IST: OUT! Rahul Chahar removes Yusuf Pathan for a duck. Another one bites the dust. A nice tossed up delivery on off, Pathan gets on one knee and looks to play the sweep. The shot is more of a top edge-type, carrying to deep backward square leg where Ishan Kishan makes no mistake. Now then, now then, now then… Sunrisers Hyderabad 62/5 in 11.3 overs, need 175 runs to win vs Mumbai Indians
22.45 IST: OUT! Jason Behrendorff removes Manish Pandey for 16. Rohit has taken a very sharp catch! That was hit at some pace towards him and the Mumbai skipper has held onto it. Leading from the front. Pandey fails to make the life he got count. Hyderabad in big trouble now. This is slightly short from Behrendorff. Pandey rocks back and pulls it hard but straight to that fielder. The Mumbai players are pumped. 6 wickets in hand. SRH 61/4 in 4.2 overs, need 76 runs to win vs MI (136/7)
22.29 IST: OUT! Just like the Mumbai batting line-up, Hyderabad toohave lost their top three within the first 10 overs. Could have easily been four had Pollard taken the catch of Pandey. Nevertheless, Joseph continues to impress. A quick short one, the key here though is the line. It is just outside off. Shankar looks to drag his pull but is hurried into the shot. It goes off the top edge towards point where Pandya takes a dolly. Joseph gets his second in his second over and Mumbai on top now. They are into the untested middle order of Hyderabad. Hyderabad 42/3 in 7 overs, need 95 runs to win vs Mumbai (136/7)
22.23 IST: FOUR! Great shot! A short delivery on off, Shankar rocks back and cuts it through the cover region for the boundary.
22.19 IST: OUT! Alzarri Joseph removes David Warner for 15. CHOPS IT ON! Now we have a match on our hands. The openers who were doing most of the scoring for the hosts have been dismissed in the space of 3 balls. Alzzari Joseph does not take time to make an impact. A poor shot to be honest by Warner. It is a nothing delivery, it is full and wide outside off. Warner throws his bat at it, away from his body but only manages an inside edge onto the stumps. SRH 33/2 in 4.2 overs, need 104 runs to win vs MI (136/7)
22.15 IST: OUT! Rahul Chahar removes Jonny Bairstow for 16. In the air… taken! Chahar strikes! Excellent bowling change and the formidable opening stand has been broken early. This is given nice amount of flight and it lands on off. It seems to be the slider. Bairstow looks to hit it on the leg side but only manages a top edge which balloons towards short third man where Bumrah takes it. JB’s problems against leg spinners continues. SRH 33/1 in 4 overs, need 104 runs to win vs MI (136/7)
22.10 IST: FOUR! Two in two. Jason bowls this on a length on off. Bairstow steps out of his crease drives it towards the mid off region. Rohit Sharma in position dives to his right but it is out of his reach. Sunrisers Hyderabad 27/0 in 3 overs, need 110 runs to win vs Mumbai Indians
22.07 IST: FOUR! Pure timing. Jason sprays on Warner’s pads and with the ball angling in, David Warner flicks it with ease towards the fine leg region for a four. Hyderabad 18/0 in 2.1 overs, need 119 runs to win vs Mumbai (136/7)
22.02 IST: FOUR! Width offered and Bairstow makes full use of it. Short pitch delivery outside off, Jonny square cuts it through the gap between point and covers. First boundary for the hosts. Sunrisers Hyderabad 8/0 in 1 over, need 129 runs to win vs Mumbai Indians (136/7)
21.55 IST: We are back for the chase! The Mumbai team is seen in a huddle. They are now making their way out to the middle. The two Hyderabad openers, Jonny Bairstow and David Warner follow them. The left-hander will take strike and he will face Jason Behrendorff. He will be looking for some swing, let us see if he gets any. Here we go…
21.42 IST: SIX! Dropped. Nabi palms it over for a maximum at deep square leg. Very sloppy, should’ve taken by his standards. Whipped across the line and went towards deep square leg, Nabi sprawls across and gets both hands on it, only to tip it over the ropes. Mumbai Indians 136/7 in 20 overs versus Sunrisers Hyderabad. Pollard 46*, S Kaul 2/34
21.38 IST: FOUR! CLOUT! No, no, no. Not to this man. He will butcher you. Width outside off and the length is short. What do you expect? Slapped over cover for a boundary. 5 balls left…
21.37 IST: SIX! Third in the over! Another West Indian clearing the ropes with ease here. Another full toss, Pollard says thank you very much and hits it right over the mid-wicket fence. Makes the Free Hit count. Mumbai 115/7 in 18.5 overs vs Hyderabad
21.33 IST: SIX! A one-handed biggie! Such is the power of this man, 100 up for the men in blue. It is the slower one and outside off. Pollard seems to have been foxed by it. He is a touch early into the shot and hence once hand comes off. He though still gets good enough connection and it sails over the long on fence. Once again perfect start to the over. Need a few more.
21.31 IST: OUT! Skipper Bhuvi strikes as Rahul Chahar departs for 10. EDGED AND TAKEN! A handy innings by Chahar though comes to the end. Can’t blame him for this shot though. It was the last ball so you would not expect Pollard to take a single and hence, it was a free hit for him. He swings to this delivery outside off but only manages an outside edge to Bairstow. MI 97/5 in 18 overs vs SRH
21.27 IST: FOUR! What a way to get off the mark and what a shot. Very clever! It is bowled outside off. Chahar waits for it and then plays it late past the slip fielder. Uses the pace of the bowler nicely and it races to the fence.
21.25 IST: OUT! Rashid Khan removes Hardik Pandya for 14. Rashid has the last laugh! Hardik though can feel a little unfortunate here. He had hit that nicely. He brings out the slog sweep but hits it flat and in the air towards the man in the deep at mid-wicket. Shankar there takes a good catch. The dangerous Pandya departs. Now the onus of taking Mumbai to a decent total now depends on Kieron Pollard. Mumbai Indians 86/6 in 16.3 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
21.23 IST: SIX! Hardik Pandya, you beauty! Picks the googly and then goes with the turn. Hits it right off the middle and into the long on stands. Ideal start to the over, need to make this count. Mumbai Indians 86/5 in 16.1 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
21.12 IST: The strategic break has been signaled! Hyderabad continue to be on top here. Mumbai however, have their best hitters out in the middle. They would be expecting them to deliver and somehow get them to the 150-run mark. However, they need to go at more than 10 per over. However, the Ishan Kishan decision could hurt the visitor as they will now have to delay their big shots. The hosts on the other hand, will want to break this stand as quickly as possible. Mumbai 72/5 in 14 overs vs Hyderabad
21.04 IST: RUN-OUT! Ishan Kishan run-out for 17. Kishan has been adjudged run out. Let us go step by step. First, it is a googly from Rashid. Kishan looks to work it to the leg side but the ball spins away, hits the high portion of the bat and goes off the leading edge to cover. Kishan comes halfway down the track but is sent back because Pollard barely moves a muscle. Vijay Shankar gets across and then returns a decent throw to Bairstow. Here comes the controversy. Bairstow looks to collect but deflects the bails with his right elbow. Then, with the throw, he looks to disturb the stumps again, behind him. But he does not UPROOT them. MI 65/5 in 12.5 overs vs SRH
20.56 IST: OUT! Siddarth Kaul removes Krunal Pandya for 6. The short ball does the trick. This is a very good short ball. On this slow surface, Kaul really got this one to zip through. It is on middle. Pandya is hurried into the pull shot. He only manages a top edge which lobs towards the keeper who takes an excellent catch. Kaul is pumped and Hyderabad stay on top. Mumbai Indians 63/4 in 11.4 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
20.53 IST: FOUR! Lucky! Kishan goes on the back foot to this flighted ball and plays an educational edge which goes past the diving Warner at first slip and into the third man fence.
20.45 IST: FOUR! That is some stroke. Wow-a-wow. It is not all that short and not much width given either from Kaul. But what does Kishan do? Waits for the ball to come to him, then arches back and steers it behind point. Third man starts to run to his left but eventually, comes second best. MI 48/3 in 9 overs vs SRH
20.40 IST: OUT! Sid Kaul removes dangerous Quinton de Kock for 19. Caught in the deep! De Kock falls now and Mumbai have lost their top 3 inside 10 overs. It seemed to be a terrific shot at first. Probably at the Wankhede, this would have been taken in the crowd. But at Uppal, the boundaries are longer. A length ball, around middle and leg, angling away, Quinton pulls this with absolute ease over mid-wicket. However, to his dismay, he finds Deepak Hooda waiting for the catch patiently. QdK falls for 19 and Mumbai are 43/3. Mumbai 43/3 in 8.3 overs vs Hyderabad
20.33 IST: FOUR! A gift there for de Kock. It is down the leg side and it is the quicker one. Quinton says thank you very much and then helps it on its way through backward square leg for a boundary.
20.28 IST: OUT! Sandeep Sharma strikes this time, Suryakumar Yadav departs for 7. The impact is umpire’s call and hitting is also umpire’s call. Mumbai lose their second and the change of ends for Sandeep Sharma has worked. Another good wicket as we know how good Yadav has been for the visitors. An audacious shot that. He looks to sweep this knuckleball on off but misses to get hit on the front pad. The umpire agrees with the appeal by the Hyderabad players. Yadav takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and they show the on-field call is the right one. Mumbai Indians 28/2 in 5 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
20.26 IST: Have Hyderabad got another? Yadav has been given out LBW. He has reviewed. Impact may just save him here.
20.23 IST: FOUR! Welcome back into the attack, Sandeep. A terrific shot from Suryakumar. The back foot punch straight down the ground. Not easy to play those. It is shortish and around off, Yadav stands tall and powerfully punches it past mid off. It races away.
20.18 IST: OUT! Mohammad Nabi removes Rohit Sharma for 11. Rohit holes out! The dropped catch has not cost a lot. The bowling change has worked wonders. Not such a great delivery though. It is slightly short and on middle, it is turning back in. Rohit look to pull it but it is not right off the middle. The boundaries here are long and Deepak Hooda in the deep runs in and takes a good catch. The Mumbai skipper fails to make an impact and a much-needed wicket for the hosts as the two seemed to get going. Mumbai Indians 21/1 in 4.4 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
20.14 IST: SIX! Quinton de Kock joins the party with a huge one. Trademark de Kock this. He shuffles across a little and hence the line is now a straighter one. He picks it up and lofts it over the square leg fence. Mumbai Indians 17/0 in 2.4 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
20.07 IST: SIX! CLUNK! That is an absolute monster. That is why you cannot drop people of this caliber. This is right in the slot, full and outside off, Rohit gets down and sweeps it massively over square leg! Mumbai 7/0 in 1.3 overs vs Hyderabad
20.04 IST: DROPPED! Kaul has put down a sitter! How costly will this prove? It would have been a huge wicket. Rush of blood there as Rohit dances down the track and heaves it across the line. He only manages a top edge which goes high up in the air towards third man. Kaul seems to have judged it well but is falling onto the ground while taking it. In the end he spills it. He straightaway indicates that he lost it in the lights. The batsmen run one in the meantime. Could have been a wicket maiden this. Nevertheless, a very good first over by Kumar.
20.03 IST: NOT OUT! A big inside edge! Hyderabad have lost a review in the first over itself! A waste of a review to be honest. Kumar wasn’t very sure, Pandey from point did indicate there was an inside edge but they still went with the review. The inswinger from Kumar and it is full. It starts from outside off. Sharma looks to drive but gets an inside edge onto his pads. An appeal follows and the umpire shakes his head. They go for the review and there is a spike on Ultra Edge. Mumbai Indians 0/0 in 0.5 overs vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
20.02 IST: A review early on! A huge shout for an LBW has been turned down. Hyderabad have reviewed. Rohit is the man in question. There seems to be an inside edge.
19.57 IST: We are all set for the action to begin! The Hyderabad players are seen in a huddle and now they make their way out to the middle. They are now followed by the Mumbai openers, Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma. The right-hander will take strike and he will face Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Here we go…
19.48 IST: Mumbai (Playing XI) – Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (C), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Jason Behrendorff, Rahul Chahar, Alzarri Joseph (debut), Jasprit Bumrah.

Mentions they have a few plans against the opposition and they now have to execute it. Admits the last game was a great win. Further adds they have a very good bowling attack and they back their bowlers to defend any total. Informs there are two changes as Lasith Malinga goes out for Alzarri Joseph and Yuvraj Singh is replaced by Ishan Kishan.
19.35 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar says, “We are going to bowl first. Williamson is close to 100% fitness, but we aren’t even half way through the tournament and with the World Cup coming up he doesn’t want to take any chance. We are playing with the same XI”.
19.30 IST: TOSS – Bhuvneshwar Kumar calls it right at the toss as Sunrisers Hyderabad opt to field vs Mumbai Indians.

19.10 IST: A victory for Mumbai Indians will make them the first side to win 100 matches (including SuperOvers)
19.00 IST: Hello and a very warm welcome to our live cricket blog of match 19 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians from Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.
Brief Preview: Jonny Bairstow will be keen to continue his run riot and keep the Sunrisers Hyderabad juggernaut rolling against a Mumbai Indians side that is getting into the groove after an up-and-down start, in their IPL match on Saturday. Currently holding the top spot in the points table with three back-to-back victories, the confident Sunrisers would not like to spare an inch against Mumbai, lying at sixth place, with two wins and as many losses from four outings.
However, Mumbai will take heart from the fact that they defeated defending champions Chennai Super Kings, their first loss in four games, in the last match. In contrast, the Sunrisers, after losing their opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders, went on the win against Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals. The Sunrisers, in fact, were without the services of their captain Kane Williamson during Thursday’s match against Delhi because of an injury, but they did not let that have an impact.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar led from the front as the seamer, along with Mohammad Nabi and Siddarth Kaul, chipped in with two wickets each to restrict Delhi to 129 for eight. And with opener Bairstow (48) once again shining with the bat, the Sunrisers had a cakewalk, cruising to a five-wicket win. Come Saturday, the Sunrisers would again be banking on the English batsmen to deliver the goods, besides Australian David Warner. The marauding pair of Warner and Bairstow have been in scintillating form this season, having shared three century-plus opening stands in four matches.
