About the match:

Last night Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad were scheduled for the 55th match of the IPL 2024. The venue of the match was  Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and the match started at 7:30 PM.

The toss story:

From the beginning, luck was in favor of MI. MI won the toss and decided to do the fielding against Sunrisers.

The end scorecard:

Sunrisers went to bat first and they posted a target of 173/8 in 20 overs. MI went to bat with the target of making 174 & MI scored 174/3 in just 17.2 overs.


SRH gave a target of 173 for eight to Mumbai. Opener Travis Head top-scored for SRH with 48 off 30 balls while skipper Pat Cummins made a rearguard 35 not out off 17 balls. Hardik Pandya and Piyush Chawla’s three-wicket hauls restricted SRH at 173/8.

Head and Abhishek Sharma who were the openers played a 56-run partnership, however, it was shortlived as MI pacer Jasprit Bumrah made the first breakthrough of the game after he dismissed Sharma. After losing some early wickets of Mayank Agarwal and Nitish Kumar Reddy, the Sunrisers must have thought Heinrich Klaasen would take care of the middle order but he too was dismissed at 2 off 4 balls.

On the other hand, Suryakumar played an unbeaten 102-run knock from 51 balls at a strike rate of 200 wherein he hit 12 fours and 6 sixes. His stupendous knock helped MI clinch a seven-wicket win over the Hyderbad-based franchise at the Wankhede Stadium. Apart from him, none of the batters could make an impact in the game. Openers Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma scored 9 off 7 balls and 4 off 5 balls respectively. Naman Dhir was dismissed at 0 off 9 balls. Tilak Varma too remained not out at 37 off 32 balls.

Player of the match:

Suryakumar Yadav won the Player of the Match for his explosive 102* off 51 balls.

Post-match reaction: who said what?

Captain Hardik, openly praised SKY for his beautiful contribution. He said, “SKY was unbelievable.” “More than him getting runs, him putting so much pressure on bowlers that even other batters get loose balls. He breaks you. Lucky to have him in my team.”

SKY was also very happy about his form and shared his happiness after the match during the interaction with the press. He said,  “I have done this after a long time. I fielded for 20 overs and batted for 18 overs, only tired (nothing else to worry about.) I feel it was the need of the hour for me. I went out to bat, needed someone to bat till the end. When the ball stopped seaming, I played all my shots that I practiced in the nets. I feel the intent would have been the same, I would have definitely played in the same pattern,”

Veteran Indian player Irfan Patha took X (previously known as Twitter) to praise this bashing performance of SHY. He wrote “Last game Surya Kumar Yadav scored half century and at the start till 15 balls he was literally playing with 100 strike rate and end up scoring at 160. Today also started responsibly. Commitment and skill”
