MI vs SRH, 08 October 2021, 07:30 PM IST
Ishan Kishan brings up 50 within 4 overs
MI have got the start they wanted. 83 on the board in just 6 overs. Hardik Pandya has got a promotion. There’s more to this game than just MI advancing. India will be happy to see this avatar of Ishan Kishan before the world cup. Hardik had a good training session before the game and if he too can get going, both MI and India will be happy.
Most runs in Powerplay (IPL)
87 S Raina vs PBKS Mumbai 2014
74 A Gilchrist vs DC Centurion 2009
63 I Kishan vs SRH Abu Dhabi 2021 *
62 D Warner v KKR Hyderabad 2017
MI need to win by 171 runs or more and score more than 200 to go past KKR’s net run rate of +0.587. They, however, will be eliminated if they chase. Considering the fact that MI are the most successful franchise in history, the other three teams wouldn’t ideally want to see the men in blue again in the final stages of the tournament with two of them chasing their maiden title.
Suryakumar Yadav | MI: “Nothing changes, everything remains the same, all routines, all processes same. You get up, you follow everything, whatever you have been doing for the last 8-10 years, so everything remains the same.
Contribution for the team – that has been a little disturbing from my side because since the last 2-3 seasons I have been always trying to be there whenever the team required. This year I have not been part of contributions so that’s been hurting a lot more. But the show must go on.
Staying consistent is the key at this point of my career. Trying to be always there whenever the team requires and contributing to the team’s victory – that’s the most important thing which I have been working on. (On today’s encounter) We’ll see, let’s go all out and decide what’s gonna happen.”
Abhishek Sharma | SRH: “The biggest frustration so far was waiting for my chance. When you’re trying your best in the nets and through the domestic season as well, you need to find your place in the playing XI but SRH is a very big team in IPL, so I had to try very hard for my position.
They are giving opportunities now, I have to avail all of them. Our coaching staff have been helping all the youngsters including me, Priyam, Samad and now Umran. I have been talking with Yuvraj Singh a lot about cricket in the past two years.
He’s been helping a lot about these wickets and IPL stuff. I was batting down the order (in U-19s) but for now I am getting to bat above, getting more chances.”
Since Rashid Khan’s debut in the 2017 season, only Jasprit Bumrah (102) has picked more wickets in the tournament than the legspinner’s 91. MI and SRH are the only sides with scoring rate under nine between overs 16 & 20 this season and have also lost the most wickets in this phase.
Stat alert: MI’s total of 131/3 is the highest after first ten overs in an IPL innings. KXIP also made 131/3 in 2014, also against SRH.
