Twitter erupts as Bill Stanlake’s last-ball four helps SRH defeat MI in a thriller

Posted On / /

On Thursday, it was a thrilling IPL contest played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians that had all the makings of a T20 classic.

Mumbai Indians, after put in to bat posted a score of 147/8 with Evin Lewis making 29, Suryakumar Yadav and Kieron Pollard making 28 each.

Sandeep Sharma picked up 2/25 on his SRH debut whereas Siddharth Kaul took 2 wickets for 29.

Chasing 149 to win, SRH had a good opening with Shikhar Dhawan making 45, but then Mayank Markande happened and the hosts lost their way.

In his quota of 4 overs, Markande removed the likes of Wriddhiman Saha, Dhawan, Manish Pandey and Shakib-Al-Hasan, to leave SRH a bit worried. But Deepak Hooda remained nonchalant during the innings and played a gem of unbeaten 32 off 25 balls, with a six in the last over, when 11 runs were needed off the final six balls with one wicket in hand.

Billy Stanlake finally won the match for SRH by smashing a four off the last ball and MI was left cursing their luck, as they lost their second straight game by one wicket.

Twitter was out of breath as the match ended in a nail-biter and SRH won.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
