Mumbai Indians' wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan took a sensational catch to end Sunrisers Hyderabad's batter Abhishek Sharma stay at the crease during the IPL 2024 clash between two teams at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday, May 6.

The dismissal took place in the sixth over of the SRH's batting batting when Abhishek Sharma faced good length outside off delivery from around the wicket from MI pacer Jasprit Bumrah. Abhishek poked it without moving his feet and edged to the wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan, who dived to the left to take the catch. The video of the same went viral on social media.

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Pat Cummins put to bat first by Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya. The visitors were off to a good start to their innings as openers Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma smashed 14 runs off debutant Anshul Kambhoj in the second over.

Kambhoj almost gave a breakthrough for the hosts as he rattled the defences of Head on the fifth ball of the 5th over. However, it turned out to be a no-ball delivery as Anshul Kambhoj overstepped the crease. Before the end of first powerplay, Bumrah opened the account for MI by dismissing Abhishek Sharma at 56/1.

Thereafter, Mayank Agarwal joined Travis Head at the crease to carry on the team's innings. However, Agarwal had a short stay at the crease as he was dismissed for 5 by Kambhoj at 68/2.

Sunrisers Hyderabad eye for a win to solidify their plays off spot

Sunrisers Hyderabad are aiming for a win against Mumbai Indians in order to consolidate their spot for the playoffs in the ongoing IPL 2024. Pat Cummins-led side are currently at the fourth spot on the points table with six wins in 10 outings and accumulated 12 points.

Earlier, SRH were at the third spot but Chennai Super Kings' win over Punjab Kings on Sunday led them to slip to one position lower. Under the captaincy of Pat Cummins, Sunrisers Hyderabad witnessed a big turnaround as compared to last few seasons of the IPL.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians' fortunes wouldn't change even with a win as they are statistically out of the playoffs race after suffering defeats in the last four matches.

Hardik Pandya-led side is currently languishing at bottom of the points table with three wins in 11 outings and accumulated only six points,
