SRH vs MI highlights, interested match 2024

IPL Highlights, SRH vs MI 2024: It was a game that saw the most runs scored in a T20 match as well as the most maximums nailed between the two teams, a whooping 38. Despite chasing the highest-ever total in IPL history – 278 – Mumbai Indians put up a strong chase but fell short by 31 runs as Sunrisers Hyderabad clinched a memorable win at home, their first set of points in IPL 2024. Tilak Varma scored 64 whilst Tim David, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma had big contributions for MumbaiRs 20.5 crore for Pat Cummins at the auction raised eyebrows. Not just for the sum, but whether it was worth spending that amount on a cricketer who hasn’t really nailed down the T20 format. Yet. Then he was made Sunrisers Hyderabad captain too, when there was a case to be made that he might not be a nailed on starter as one of the four overseas picks. But on the other side, everything he touches these days turns to gold. Perhaps that is what SRH were banking on.

One match doesn’t prove either case of the argument, but Cummins had plenty to smile towards the backend of the run-fest. On a night when 523 runs were scored on a road, the 15th over bowled by Cummins went for just 3 runs. He finished with 2/35, taking the wickets of Rohit Sharma and Tilak Varma. That over was preceded and followed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jaydev Unadkat applying the handbrakes as well. Overs 13, 15 and 16 bowled by those three combined went for 13 runs, comfortably the mos decisive spell enjoyed by the bowlers on the night. And their captain led the way.

Pat Cummins and Rohit Sharma share stage For the first time since Indian hearts took a beatdown for the ages last year, Pat Cummins and Rohit Sharma will play on the same field. The difference being, this is an IPL game, and of course, only one of them will arrive at the toss. It’s still too early in the season to believe that the MI fans would’ve gotten used to seeing Hardik Pandya as the skipper, with Rohit Sharma still playing, but it’s the reality now.



To be fair, their first outing almost went their way. A six-run defeat shouldn’t worry them as of now, especially considering the fact that it was in their opening game, losing which has been part of their successful title-winning era. SRH lost the game by an even finer margin – four runs – but given their recent outings in the league, the franchise would want two points in their stride in the second go. Some big names in the offering, hopefully some good cricket as well. Stay tuned as we take you through the buildup to the very last ball.

Pathan not impressed with Hardik’s call, nor is ShamiA lot of the discourse after Mumbai’s loss was on the captain deciding to hold himself back for later in the innings. Irfan Pathan would dive into it afterwards. “When they were chasing, they sent Tim David higher up the order. He sent Tim David when Rashid Khan had an over left. I felt Hardik Pandya maybe didn’t want to face Rashid Khan after having not played cricket for a long time,” said Pathan.Jasprit Bumrah once again had to wait for his turn as Kwena Maphana, who became the third youngest overseas player to debut in IPL, steamed in with the new ball after Mumbai opted to bowl first. Skipper Hardik Pandya shared the new ball with Maphaka but Travis Head and Mayank Agarwal gave Sunrisers a bright start with a full house enjoying Head’s fireworks. It was a poor call from the new Mumbai skipper, as Bumrah emerged to be the best of the lot, but Sunrisers were up and running when the pacer was introduced into the attack.

Sunrisers PowerPlay time

Head was given an early chance as Tim David dropped him at mid-off in Pandya’s first ball with the batsman batting on 5 and the Australian made sure Mumbai paid the price by punishing Maphaka for 22 runs in the third over. The South African, who made his debut after being picked as a replacement for Dilshan Madushanka, came under a cropper as Head smashed two consecutive sixes – first over long-on and then a fierce pull over the deep mid-wicket.
