The Saturday doubleheader of IPL 2020 between Mumbai-Delhi and Hyderabad-Bangalore saw both the matches having definitely under-par totals being chased with ease. However Sunrisers Hyderabad faced some hiccups during their chase while Mumbai Indians chased it comfortably. While Ishan Kishan dominated in the chase with a 47-ball-72 for Mumbai Indians, SRH had more or less equal contributions from Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey and Jason Holder.
Mumbai Indians winning the first game of the day in IPL 2020 assured them a top-spot in 2020 IPL, while none of the other teams has confirmed to even qualify to the playoffs. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s qualification chances have greatly been boosted with another huge win in a row. Now they only need to win one more match, but against a strong MI team on Tuesday.
Here we look at the stats produced from the two games of IPL 2020.
DC vs MI, Match 51, IPL 2020
1 – Mumbai Indians become the first ever team to play 200 IPL matches. It went as grand as they wanted, by defeating Delhi Capitals in a convincing style and confirming the top-spot in the points table in IPL 2020.
1 – Times changed too soon after Shikhar Dhawan had secured a place in the Indian team. Within five matches, he has a streak of consecutive hundreds as well as consecutive ducks. He is only the fourth player with consecutive fifty-plus scores and also consecutive ducks within the same IPL season.
