Umran Malik returned figures of 3 for 23 as Sunrisers Hyderabad, defending a total of 193, defeated Mumbai Indians by 3 runs in Match 65 at the Wankhede Stadium. With the victory, Hyderabad also kept their play-offs hopes alive.
Tripathi, Player of the Match, said, ‘I’ve enjoyed batting at three. It’s important that if the openers have given a good start, then continuing that. Or whatever the situation demands I’m trying to learn from that. Bumrah’s a great bowler. Was just looking to react to whatever he’s bowling. Depends on how the wicket is playing, how I can counterattack at that point. If it’s there and I can take it on, I will definitely go for the shot.
If it’s not there then I’ll just look to take those singles-doubles. To win games is more important, happy I could do that today. Sometimes when a bowler is bowling well, how to score those runs. In T20 there cannot be a moment where you can slow down. Every ball is an event so I just think what could be the best result. When you play it’s obviously your dream to represent your country.’
