IPL 2020 Match 17 Live Updates Between Mumbai Indians and SunRisers Hyderabad, straight from Sharjah Cricket Stadium
On the pads and four.
Sandeep bowls one outside leg and all Surya had to do was give it direction towards backward square leg.
Back-to-back boundaries for Suryakumar.A good length ball but a bit wide outside off. Surya plays it on the rise and through the covers for another four.
The next ball is drilled down the ground for yet another boundary. It’s a hat-trick of fours in this over and Mumbai are getting a move-on.
Suryakumar plays a beautiful lofted drive over cover to open his account with a boundary.
He presented the full face of the bat and hit it over the fielders in the ring. Good shot.
Siddarth Kaul is into the attack. He strays in line and stars off with one on Quinton de Kock’s pads. The batsman flicks it through square leg for four.
What a start by SRH!
After six runs and a wicket in the first over, T Natarajan gives only a single in the second.On a batting paradise like Sharjah, that’s an excellent start.
WICKET! Rohit c Bairstow b Sandeep 6 (5)
Sandeep strikes! Rohit is out!
What a big wicket this is for SRH early on.
This was a wide ball if Rohit had left it alone. Too far outside off and Rohit chases it. He gets a faint edge behind to the ‘keeper. SRH reviewed the one-field not out decision and got it overturned.
Sandeep Sharma will bowl the first over, Rohit takes strike… and SIX!
Some swing early on as Rohit plays three dots.
And then he launches a slightly back-of-length ball over cow-corner for a six. The first of many to come.

“We would have batted first as well,” says David Warner, Hyderabad captain. Two changes for SunRisers Hyderabad.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is out injured, Sandeep Sharma replaces him.
Khaleel Ahmed is out, in comes Siddarth Kaul.
Match of the equals – head to head
Mumbai Indians, the four-time champions, have won more matches than they have lost against many IPL teams but not SunRisers Hyderabad.
Both Mumbai and SunRisers have won seven and lost seven in the 14 games so far in the IPL.Here is a low down of the head to head stats.
Warner vs Bumrah – fire meets fire
The aggression of David Warner against the pace of Jasprit Bumrah – even on a batting-friendly surface like Sharjah, this could be an interesting clash. Warner can clear any ground in the world, let alone one of the smallest of all, and Bumrah could take the pitch out of the equation with his pace and pin-point yorkers.Here is the match-up between the players that are likely to face-off in the Powerplay and at the death.
Rohit vs Rashid – a mouth-watering contest
Rohit Sharma hasn’t been at his best against leg spin, and this game he faces arguably the most dangerous leg-spinner in T20 cricket in this era – Rashid Khan.Here is the match-up between the two T20 heavyweights.
Mumbai look for a repeat of last match
Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya got going for Mumbai Indians in their last outing against Kings XI Punjab, who were short on death-bowling skills.
However, that may not be the case with SunRisers Hyderabad as they have likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan and Rashid Khan in their midst.Here are the players to watch out for in today’s contest.
