Sunrisers Hyderabad pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has blamed that their team defeat by four-wicket due to a low score and dew factor against Mumbai Indians in Wednesday of Match 10 of the Indian Premier league.
After match losing by 4 wickets against Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Bhuvneshwar said at the post-match press conference, “I don’t think there was anything wrong with our batting. They tried their best. It was just one of those days when you play your shot and it goes to the fielders. We were 79 without loss in 10 overs which was a good start but 158 was not enough as dew was there.”
Bhuvneshwar added, “It was difficult to defend. Although it’s the average score in T20, but on this ground it was below average. It’s very difficult to bowl when dew sets in. It’s not an excuse. We needed to get 2-3 wickets in power play.”
Sunriser’s kept losing wickets at continuously after Warner was dismissed to a stunning, while keeper Parthiv Patel catches two wickets by diving.

However, Bhuvneshwar sought to downplay the shot; he said “If he bats for 20 minutes five minutes he bats right handed in nets. It was not surprising. It was an amazing shot. AB (de Villiers) plays these shots.”
Bangladesh left-arm pace bowler Mustafizur Rahman plays his first game and gave heaps of runs without finishing his part. He said Rahman was a key member of their squad and was confident to return to form.
“Bhuvneshwar said “He will bounce back, it’s just one odd game. He was one of our main bowlers last year. There’s nothing we can talk to him. He just had an off game. We are pretty sure he will come back.”
When asked about the player’s fitness, he said about the recovery of Rahman recent injury, “He played, that means he is fit.”
