Sidelights:

This game was one of those games which do not entertain you to the core. It was one of those keep calm games of T20. SRH had survived many times here during the last season despite putting low scores hence 157 should have given them enough confidence but MI who won just the 3rd game this season out of the 9 games they have played looked more focused and well planned to win the game. If you take a look of SRH’s score 157 runs and the loss of only 3 wickets means they should have got 15-20 runs more even if they had to lose a few more wickets in the process and that’s exactly what they might have felt once the game was over. MI can still not smile as they have really a remote chance to reach the playoffs.
