IPL 2022: Sunrisers Hyderabad survive Tim David onslaught to beat Mumbai Indians by 3 runs | Cricket News
But MI have invested heavily in Tim David, paying the Singapore-born Australian Rs 8.25 crore at the auctions. After an indifferent start, leading him to be dropped, the burly all-rounder won a couple of games for the franchise with his big hitting.
He looked to be doing the same at a throbbing Wankhede on a balmy Tuesday as MI needed an improbable 45 runs off 18 balls to hunt down Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 193/6.
David hit T Natarajan for four sixes to get the equation down to 19 off 13 balls. Then, in a moment of madness, he ran for a non-existent single and was dismissed run out for 46 (18 balls, 3×4, 4×6), leaving the tailenders to score 19 off 12.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a maiden in the 19th over, leaving David to cover his face with his MI jersey in the dug out in despair. Ramandeep Singh scored 15 off the last over, including a last-ball six off Fazal Farooqui, to leave MI three short and reflecting on another close defeat.
We fell short by just 3 runs. 😞#OneFamily #DilKholKe #MumbaiIndians #MIvSRH https://t.co/HLhQHqQUI9

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan had earlier given the chase the perfect impetus with a 95-run opening stand. But Umran Malik’s pace, including a ping to Rohit’s helmet and his wickets of Kishan, Daniel Sams and Tilak Verma, derailed their chances.
SRH got to 193/6 because of a profligate display in the field and with the ball by MI, but that should not mask the quality of Rahul Tripathi’s knock of 76 (44b, 9×4, 3×6) and the energetic knocks of 42 (26b, 4×4, 2×6) from opener Priyam Garg and Nicholas Pooran (38; 22b, 2×4, 3×6).
Our highest individual score this season. Man of the Match for tonight. Take a bow, @tripathirahul52. 💪🏾🔥#MIvSRH… https://t.co/zKaLOcCx3C

Tripathi figured out that SRH had the unenviable record of hitting the least boundaries in the Powerplay this IPL. Today, they course-corrected and hit nine. Even Bumrah wasn’t spared.
