Sunrisers Hyderabad Find Way To Playoff After Thrashing Mumbai Indians
In a must-win game, Sunrisers Hyderabad thrashed Mumbai Indians to seal their spot in the IPL 2020 playoffs. Winning the toss, SRH decided to chase in the crucial encounter. Since MI had already qualified, they rested their regular bowlers and tried new bowling line-up. With Rohit Sharma's return, the team was expected to score a big total. However, an impressive attack by SRH bowlers restricted MI to 149 runs at eight wickets. Chasing the target, SRH opted for attacking approach from the very first over and put the team in the driver seat. With Warner's 58-ball 85-run knock, SRH clinched a 10-wicket victory against the table-toppers. The first qualifier will be a clash on November 5 between table-toppers: Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals, where the winning team will directly qualify for the finals and the losing side will play the second qualifier against the winner of 'eliminator'. For the 'eliminator', Hyderabad will play against Royal Challengers Bangalore on November 6.
