Twitter Reacts As Rahul Tripathi Hits Scintillating 76 Off 44 In Must-Win Game For SRH

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batter Rahul Tripathi put up another scintillating performance against the Mumbai Indians (MI) in a must-win game at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday.

SRH need a win to stay alive in the tournament and they had the pressure of setting a target. Their in-form opener Abhishek Sharma was dismissed early but Priyam Garg made the most of his opportunity at the top.

Garg, coming in place of Kane Williamson, scored a brisk 26-ball 42 and built a 78-run partnership with Tripathi to stabilize the innings. Garg took the initiative but once he fell, Tripathi took over.

In the company of Nicholas Pooran, the 31-year-old played exquisite strokes including his now-trademark straight loft down the ground. He smashed 3 sixes and 9 fours en route to a 44-ball 76.

He has come to SRH’s rescue so often and the Ranchi-born right-hander did it all over again. Pooran played his role to perfection as well scoring 38 runs in 22 balls but it was Tripathi’s knock that stole the limelight.

Although he fell in a bid to provide a great finish to the side, he had done his job and it was left to the middle order to apply the finishing touches. When he fell, SRH was 174/4.
