Mumbai and Hyderabad played out a wonderful match tonight, as the SRH pulled out an incredible one wicket win.
Mumbai batted first to put on 147 runs on the board, as SRH restricted the might MI batting lineup on a good wicket. Rashid Khan and Sandeep Sharma were extremely good, as the pair picked up a couple of wickets to give his side a great chance.
In reply, Dhawan got his side off to a flyer, as the brilliant opener continued his great form with the bat. MI picked up wickets though, as the match went into the final over.
‘The Fizz’ then bowled an outstanding 19th over, as he picked up two wickets and gave just one run away to take the match into the final over.
Hooda then smashed the first ball for six, as the pendulum swung towards the home side. But Ben Stanlake won the match off the last ball, as he swung Ben Cutting for a single to send the home crowd in ecstasy.
Here are the Twitter reactions!
What a game. Chennai twice chased what looked unchaseable and Mumbai today nearly defended the undefendable. Last 3 overs SRH needed 15 with 5 wickets in hand. Fizz, Markande, Bumrah made a match out of it. Hooda, in the end held his nerve #SRHvMI

The #SRHvMI match is the first ever IPL match in which the chasing side won the match by 1 wicket off the final delivery of the 20th over!

Got too close to comfort in the end but that was T20 Cricket at its best. The bowlers did an excellent job in restricting MI to 147 & in the end Hooda held his nerve under pressure.Special mention to young Markande,looks a promising prospect. #OrangeArmy is a happy army #SRHvMI
