Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) goalkeeper T. Natarajan made a clever on-field maneuver to knock out all-rounder Tim David of Mumbai Indians (MI) at Wankhede Stadium. The dismissal changed the game.
David almost single-handedly brought Mumbai home. He scored 46 of 18 serves to put Mumbai in a difficult position after a good start at the opener. The all-rounder from Singapore hit Natarajan for four six points in the 18th round before using the last ball, which changed the game in Hyderabad’s favor.
Tim David did his best to keep his next shot. The SRH pitcher throws a long ball outside a tree and the pitcher hits the pitcher.
Somehow, Natarajan was able to get his hands on the ball and the ball rolled behind the tree. David settles for a single but Natarajan manages to throw the ball into the tree to catch the MI player short.
Watch David get fired here:
David looked disappointed when he returned to the stall, and so did the entire peach line. The layoffs also turned the game in Hyderabad’s favor.
With 23 players in the last two games, Bhuvneshwar Kumar beat a wicket maiden in penultimate place. Fazalhaq Farooqi conceded just 15 times in the final to help SRH return to a winning streak after five consecutive losses.
With this win, Kane Williamson and Co. continue to maintain its position in the race to win tickets to the knockout round.

Speaking at the introduction ceremony after the game, Rohit said:
“It wasn’t until the second last game, I think we hit it. Tim David ran away unfortunately there. We thought we played a lot in the game up until that exit. they kept it. My nerves were pretty good behind the scenes.”
