Cameron Green's all-around performance leads MI to its third consecutive victory with a 14-run victory over SRH
SRH lost to MI by 14 runs.
Cameron Green performed admirably throughout.
Taking his first ever IPL wicket, Arjun Tendulkar
With Cameron Green proving his value to the squad with his all-around excellence, Mumbai Indians won their third game in a row and defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by a score of 14 runs. MI is quickly moving up the table with three victories in their last five games.
Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Mumbai Indians (MI), led the team's strong start after SRH won the toss and elected to bowl first. As the fourth player in IPL history to reach 6,000 runs, Rohit made history. However, Rohit was removed for an 18-ball 18 because he was unable to capitalise on his start. Ishan Kishan offered him strong assistance, but after scoring 38 runs in 31 balls, he joined the list of players who failed to capitalise on a strong start.
With his first 50 in the IPL, Cameron Green, though, was the one who made headlines. The second-most expensive player in league history notched a perfect 64 in just 40 balls. The incredible cameo by Tilak Verma, who scored a 37 off just 17 balls, enabled MI to post a whopping total of 192.
Jason Behrendorff's powerplay dismissals of Harry Brook and Rahul Tripathi gave MI the ball and a perfect start. Green succeeded in translating his bat-on-ball skills into the SRH captain Aiden Markram's dismissal. Piyush Chawla took two wickets while giving up 43 runs, including the dismissal of Henrick Klassen, who had made a 16-ball 36 and appeared poised to put MI out of the game.
In order to secure MI's victory, Tim David made four catches and executed a remarkable run-out. Arjun Tendulkar also claimed his first-ever IPL wicket.
Although MI is now in sixth place, they are tied for first place with the four teams above them in the standings on points. SRH are currently in ninth place.
