In the 201 chase against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL 2023 match on Sunday at Wankhede, Mumbai Indians lost Ishan Kishan for 14(12). A 20-ball 50 was scored by Cameron Green, who played at number three. Rohit, who was dropped on 12, has shown good intent. He was struggling a bit with his timing, but a four off Umran Malik got him going.

During the chase, Rohit set a new record in T20 and IPL. MI skipper Rohit Sharma became the first player to complete 5000 runs for Mumbai Indians. In the process, he also completed 11000 runs in T20 Cricket. He is the second Indian on the list who has completed more than 5000 runs for a single franchise. 

Akash Madhwal earlier spearheaded Mumbai’s recovery and took four wickets to hold Sunrisers Hyderabad to 200/5. The newly introduced opening duo of Vivrant Sharma and Mayank Agarwal scored 140 runs for the first wicket as SRH, who had been requested to bat first, put on a convincing performance. Madhwal dismissed both batters after they had scored 69 (from Vivrant) and 47 (from Mayank), respectively. Mumbai will seek to improve their chances in the three-way play-off match for the last berth by winning. Hyderabad, on the other hand, will want to finish things off with a bang, and if they succeed, Rajasthan will still be in the race.
