MI vs SRH LIVE Score, IPL 2021, Match 9: Mujeeb removes Kishan as Mumbai lose fourth wicket

IPL 2021, Live Cricket Score, Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): Bhuvneshwar to bowl the 18th over (and perhaps the 20th as well). New batsman Hardik Pandya gets off the mark with a thick outside edge that carries the ball between the keeper and short third man. He then keeps the scoreboard ticking, smacking the ball towards long off for a brace off the third and bringing Pollard back on strike with a single off the fourth. Bhuvi fails to gather the ball at the non-striker’s end after an accurate throw by Warner from long off, allowing Pandya to avoid getting run out after responding to a risky second. Pollard keeps the strike with a single towards midwicket. 11 off the over — MI’s 2nd best of the innings and their most productive since the end of the powerplay.
