Rohit Sharma branded Tim David’s runout “unfortunate”

“Till about the second last over I thought we had it. Unfortunately Tim David got runout. We thought we were very much in the game till that runout. You would back yourself to get even 19 off the final over. Credit to Sunrisers, they held their nerve pretty well at the back end. We wanted to try a few things keeping one eye on the future. We wanted certain guys to bowl under pressure in certain situations of the game but I thought they batted pretty well to get 193. The way we pulled things back at the end was very good,” said Rohit in a post-match presentation.

David’s innings may have affected the match’s outcome.

SunRisers Hyderabad ended their five-match losing streak with a thrilling three-wicket win over Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday, thanks to Rahul Tripathi’s 76-run innings and Umran Malik’s three-wicket haul.

We will try everything we can from our side. If there is an opportunity to try out new guys we will definitely look to do that as well,” he added.

In order to reach a 194-run mark, 44 runs were required in three overs. T Natarajan was blasted for four sixes in an over by Tim David. But the left arm pacer got the last laugh, dismissing the hitter for 46 off just 18 balls.

With 19 runs needed in 12 deliveries, Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced a wicket maiden over Sanjay Yadav, dismissing him for a four-ball duck.

Ramandeep Singh tried hard with 19 runs needed off the last over. But his team fell short by three runs, as Kane Williamson led Hyderabad to a narrow victory to keep their play-off hopes alive.
