IPL 2019: Here is the updated points table, Orange and Purple cap holder after the entertaining match between SRH and MI at Hyderabad.
Debutant Alzarri Joseph’s ravishing 6 for 12 guides Mumbai Indians to their third win in IPL 2019as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 40 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Saturday. MI managed to halt SRH’s three-match winning streak on Saturday just two days after they ceased CSK’s three-match streak at Wankhede.
“When we dropped Pollard, it cost us. Could’ve been an easy chase had we applied ourselves. We could’ve bowled better at the death, but dropped catches will hurt. Otherwise, you can’t restrict a team. Captaining is difficult while bowling, but we have experienced team-mates. Our middle-order couldn’t apply themselves, and we’ll assess that moving into the next game. Today’s wicket wasn’t normal or flat, but it wasn’t a tough chase,” said SRH skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar after the defeat.
Updated points table:
Chennai Super Kings stand on top of the points table with eight points from five games. Mumbai Indians, with that massive and impressive win, jumped to the fourth position with six points from five games. SRH, on the other hand, stand at the second spot with six points from five games, standing ahead only in terms of net run rate.
Orange Cap table:
David Warner and Jonny Bairstow still stand atop with 279 runs and 262 runs in IPL 2019. Warner scored 15 runs in the match while Bairstow scored 16 runs against Mumbai Indians at home.

Yuzvendra Chahal still comfortably stands at the top of the Purple Cap table with nine wickets in five matches. Meanwhile, SRH’s Mohammad Nabi has jumped to the second spot with seven wickets in five games. He dismissed MI skipper Rohit Sharma to provide SRH with an early breakthrough in the match.
