Manish Pandey is one of the best fielders in world cricket at the moment and he has proved why is regarded in high esteem. He is such a swift mover on the cricket field and took an absolute blinder in today’s game against Mumbai Indians to dismiss a well set Ishan Kishan off the bowling of Sandeep Sharma.
SRH were bowling tight lines and didn’t allow the explosive MI batting lineup to run away with the game. SRH bowlers kept chipping in with some crucial wickets up front as both Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav were dismissed inside the first 6 overs.
Out of form Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan were trying their best to keep up the run rate and they did take advantage of SRH’s fifth bowler quota which was shared between Kane Williamson and Abdul Samad.
Quinton de Kock scored 67 from 39 balls and was dismissed by King Khan and it was expected that Ishan Kishan would score big after Quinton de Kock’s wicket but he got out to a brilliant catch in the long on boundary.
The ground dimensions are such a disgrace in Sharjah as the boundaries are too short that even mishits are going over the ropes comfortably. This is the 4th game in Sharjah and in all the games, team that batted first have scored in excess of 200 on all the 4 occasions.
SRH did a brilliant job in restricting the powerful Mi batsmen to just 208 runs, thanks to Rashid Khan and T Natarajan who were magnificent with the ball. Rashid Khan finished with figures of 4 overs for 22 runs to go with the important wicket of well set Quinton de Kock. The left arm seamer in T Natarajan was equally impressive as he finished with match figures of 4 overs for 29 runs. He returned with these figures after having bowled 2 overs in powerplay and 2 overs at death.
