IPL 2020: Sunrisers Hyderabad opted to field first against Royal Challengers after Mumbai Indians, who have already qualified for the playoffs, defeated Delhi Capitals by nine wickets on Saturday.
Jasprit Bumrah (3/17 in four overs) and Trent Boult (3/21 in four overs) choked DC to 110/9 at the end of 20 overs in the first innings. Ishan Kishan’s unbeaten 72-run knock helped MI chase the target of 111.
Meanwhile, RCB can’t afford to lose both their last two games as it will affect their NRR, resulting in their elimination if other teams on 14 points have higher run rates. Sitting on the sixth spot with 10 points from 12 games, SRH need to win their remaining two matches — against RCB and MI — to reach 14 points to stay in the reckoning.
