IPL 2018: Aakash Chopra Floored by SRH-MI Thriller in Hyderabad
Former India Test specialist turned commentator, Aakash Chopra floored after Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) beats Mumbai Indians (MI) in a last-over thriller – to keep their winning streak intact.
The Sunrisers banked on Deepak Hooda (32*) to pull things off in their favour.
However, it was the home team who dominated the fixture until the 18th over, before Yusuf Pathan departed.
The host team led by Kane Williamson lost four back-to-back wickets as Mumbai crawled back into the game.
However, it was Hooda’s calm and composure that helped Hyderabad keep their winning momentum going.
Previously, Mumbai Indians posted a moderate total of 147 runs after a brilliant bowling effort from Hyderabad. Some late blow from Kieron Pollard ensured that they get closer to 150.
Moreover, Shikhar Dhawan got Hyderabad off to a flier. His form will benefit the team in this two-month long tournament.
Mumbai’s young spinner Mayank Markande impressed one and all with his wrist spin. He returned with four for 24 in his quota of four overs.
However, this twist and turns floored Chopra as he took to Twitter to express his views.
Meanwhile, the tournament has already seen three last over finishes in the opening week of the tournament. It’s is expected that many such games will further entertain the jampacked crowd in the next couple of weeks.
