Sunrisers Hyderabad did everything well to snatch victory off Mumbai Indians last night as they made it to 12 points in the IPL. With a game in hand,Sunrisers remain hopeful that they can make it into the top 4 and qualify for the play-offs this year. Apart from the star performers, Rahul Tripathi, Umran Malik and Bhuvi, one player that went unnoticed was Priyam Garg.

The 21 year old was amazing with the bat filling in for Kane Williamson who has been out of form this season. The youngster managed to score 42 off 26 balls to give Sunrisers the start they needed. Priyam Garg formed a good partnership with Rahul Tripathi before disappointingly giving his wicket away to Ramandeep Singh. However, Priyam continued his heroics on the pitch as well as he took a superb catch off a Umran Malik ball to dismiss Daniel Sams.

The equation then read 127/3 after 14.5 overs. And Daniel Sams was all set to start smashing the balls to help Mumbai Indians through to victory. However, the spectacular catch by Priyam Garg means Daniel Sams has to head back to the pavilion. This was Umran Malik’s 3 wicket of the day making to 21 in 13 games, moving Malik inside the top 5 in the Purple Cap race.

Sunrisers play Punjab Kings in their last game. Both teams need a victory to stay alive in the competition. However, that might be cut short of Royal Challengers Bangalore win against Gujarat Titans. Hence, the Play-off qualifications for SRH, KKR, PBKS and possibly DC still hang by the thread.
