Couldn't have asked for a better IPL debut: Alzarri Joseph

Couldn't have asked for a better IPL debut: Alzarri Joseph

It was an exquisite display of power hitting from the big West Indian, who made his intentions pretty clear in the first ball of the penultimate over when he smashed a one handed six off the bowling of Siddharth Kaul. For the first time in this edition, Sunrisers lost the explosive opening pair in the PowerPlay overs.

"It was a sensational bowling effort from Alzarri, to bowl like this in first game".

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (capt), Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Rahul Chahar, Ben Cutting, Pankaj Jaiswal, Ishan Kishan, Siddhesh Lad, Evin Lewis, Mayank Markande, Mitchell McClenaghan, Alzarri Joseph, Jason Behrendorff, Anukul Roy, Rasikh Salam, Anmolpreet Singh, Barinder Sran, Aditya Tare, Suryakumar Yadav, Jayant Yadav, Quinton de Kock. Sharma was dismissed by Mohammed Nabi in the 4th over. Both Bairstow and David Warner have been on song and are expected to get the team off to a good start yet again.

Stroke play was proving to be hard on a slow surface and the situation became worse for the visitors when the in-form opener Quinton de Kock (19) departed while trying to increase the scoring rate.

Bhuvneshwar's final over went for 19 runs with Pollard scoring two fours and a six, giving Mumbai something to bowl at.

After Nabi completed his full quota of overs, his Afghanistan teammate Rashid Khan made life tough for the opposition batsmen. The Hyderabad pacers - Sandeep Sharma and Kaul - too were up to the task, using their pace well on a slow wicket to stifle the batsmen.

Mumbai Indians finished their innings at 136-7 in 20 overs.

The 22-yer-old, who joined the Mumbai squad in place of the injured Adam Milne of New Zealand, bowled a maiden in 3.4 overs to help his team thrash hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad by 40 runs. Poor fielding let Hyderabad down towards the end of the innings.
