Sunrisers Hyderabad batter Rahul Tripathi unveiled a batting masterclass against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday at the Wankhede Stadium.
Tripathi had walked out to bat at number three after SRH who were put into bat lost an early wicket as Abhishek Sharma was sent back in the hut by Daniel Sams for 9 off 10.
Opener Priyam Garg was then joined by Tripathi and the two batters steadied the ship for the side and chipped in with a 78-run stand for the second wicket. Garg was eventually dismissed for 42 off 26 after he was caught and bowled by Ramandeep Singh.
But the dominance from the SRH batters didn’t stop as Nicholas Pooran who came out to bat at number four showed his class with the bat and put up a partnership of 76 runs for the third wicket with Tripathi. While Pooran got dismissed for a 22-ball 38, Tripathi went on to notch up 76 in 44 deliveries.
