Mumbai Indians were so close yet so far as they fell to a 31-run defeat in a high-scoring thriller at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on March 27.

After the loss to SunRisers Hyderabad in their IPL 2024 match, former MI captain Sachin Tendulkar boosted the team’s spirits. The match, held in Hyderabad, witnessed a high-scoring encounter with a total of 523 runs, setting a new record for the highest aggregate in an IPL match. Former MI captain Sachin Tendulkar gave the team hope and said that it was just the start of the campaign.

SRH Explosive Batting

While SRH posted a formidable total of 277/3, MI responded strongly with 246/5 during their chase. Although SRH secured a 31-run victory, Tendulkar pointed out that the game could have swung either way, especially with MI showing promise halfway through their chase.

MI’s opening pair, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan provided a solid start by adding 56 runs in just 3.1 overs. However, MI suffered setbacks when both openers were dismissed within a short span.

Naman Dhir made an impactful cameo, scoring 30 runs from 14 balls before falling to SRH captain Pat Cummins, who was impressive with the ball.

Tilak Varma’s brisk 64 off 34 deliveries kept MI in the hunt, but his dismissal in the 15th over, followed by a period of dot balls, made the chase challenging.

Tim David’s unbeaten 42 in the latter stages of the innings was commendable, but it wasn’t enough as MI fell short of the target, finishing at 246-5, their highest IPL total to date.

Pat Cummins, who took 2 wickets for 35 runs, was the standout performer with the ball, guiding SRH to their first win of the season. He described the match as “amazing.”
