and Joseph has the record for best IPL figures! And can you believe it, this has come on his IPL debut. What a superstar. Length ball, wide outside off, and he tries to dab a cut fine. Takes a thick edge, and QdK makes no mistake. Sunrisers are 96 all out, Mumbai win by 40 runs!
Alzarri Joseph's record-breaking 6 for 12 routs Sunrisers Hyderabad
Kieron Pollard's 46 not out off 26 balls lifted Mumbai Indians to a respectable total before Joseph produced one of the great IPL bowling performances
11.42pm Oh boy, what an end to this game. Don't forget to keep an eye on our stats piece from tonight's game. A whole bunch of records broken. Before we forget, remember that this was also Mohammad Nabi's first defeat in the IPL. More double-header cricket coming tomorrow, so don't forget to have a good night's sleep. We'll see you tomorrow at 3PM IST for more IPL action. Till then, on behalf of Ranjith and Debayan, it's goodnight from all of us. Bye!
11.34pm Time for the presentation.
Alzarri Joseph, the Man of the Match: "It's a dream start, can't get better than this. I just wanted to bowl to the plans. When they said I was playing, I decided to keep it simple and back myself. When I got my first wicket, I had a muted celebration since I was focused on the game that we had to win. The boys are really playing well, lot of hard work, so all we need to do is go to the park and show them what we can do."
Rohit Sharma, the winning captain: "very, very pleased. I thought 136 wasn't a great batting effort, but we held our nerves, kept them guessing. And we stayed in the game till the last ball. Sensational effort from Alzarri. To come out and play like that, shows what he's capable of. His confidence in playing CPL has paid off. We didn't bat well to start with. We kept losing wickets. We knew it wasn't a 180 pitch because of the rain, so it was a bit sticky. But we knew anything around 140 would be a good score to defend. Because of the quality of our bowling. At the toss I said, we back our bowling to defend any total. We spoke that bulk of Sunrisers' run has been scored by their top order. So we wanted to exploit that by getting early wickets. Once we got those two wickets, we knew we were in the game thanks to our spinners and seamers. We knew we could get wickets in the middle overs, and that's what happened. We don't want to be a team who starts off poorly, we want to win games at the start, because it gets hectic at the back end. Few players will leave at the back-end too, so important to start the tournament well too. We needed characters to step up - today was a perfect day for Pollard. Played a crucial knock in getting us to 136. Alzarri too, but credit to the other bowlers we had as well."
RAM NARESH MISH: "In Alzarri thing we are forgetting to mention the braveheart Chahar. I see the boy has a big heart. Not afraid to ball whosoever it night be, in front of him."
Fayiz: "No points to guess that Joseph will dedicate these beautiful figures to his late mom. Mothers are always an inspiration. Love u mom, can't imagine my life without you."
11.31pm Stick around for the match presentation. Will Joseph pip Pollard to become the Man of the Match? Surely right.
Harsha : "On par with Bmac's IPL debut" -- wow, that's some compliment!
Arun Prakash: "Instead of debating on the #4. Can we debate on the captaincy for Team India? I vote for Rohit over Kohli. #IPL2019"
kaju: "Biggest stroke of luck for MI was Malinga being away! Hope they maintain this team."
AD: "Amazing spell by Joseph, but one thing I can see is that Bumrah helps others take wickets. They try to play him out, putting more pressure on themselves to bat against the next death bowler, and that lead to the late wickets. He bowled beautifully, best debut ever. "

Rajesh Sanghvi : "At the innings break Rashid correctly said that they gave away 30-35 runs more.... He read the match situation perfectly."
Arun Prakash: "More than 6/12, what I loved in Alzarri's spell is he made Bumrah look like a weak bowler
OxTiger10: "Pollard scored 38 off the last two overs after being dropped by Rashid Khan. Mumbai won by 40 runs. SRH lost the match right there."
Captain cool: "I repeat ...Windies the team to watch...... Black horse .....for this coming world cup "
Prashant: "@Sreshth: it has been already discussed that he would be a Superstar one day after seeing his bowling after losing her mother."
11.25pm Joseph's 6-12 is the eighth-best T20 bowling figure of all time. He's shaking the hands of all the Sunrisers players. Pollard gets congratulated by the Mumbai owner too.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: "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."
Vishaal : "Caribbean Calypso at the IPL! First Russell, now Joseph"
Raunak: "The victory margin was exactly what Pollard's dropped catch cost them"
Daoodkolachi: "T20 means West Indies..."
11.23pm What you're witnessing is a historic moment in the IPL. Sohail Tanvir's 6 for 14 was the best figures in the IPL for more than a decade. But that's been broken today, along with a bunch of other records. Goes without saying that this is the best figures by an IPL debutant too. Alzarri Joseph, remember the name. Meanwhile, this is also Sunrisers' lower-ever IPL score.
back of a length, wide outside off, and cut away to point
full on middle, and angling down leg. Sharma flicks fine behind square, and fine leg can't cut it off
The best figures in the IPL are Sohail Tanvir's 6 for 14. Can Joseph get another wicket and wrest that 11-season record away?
five for! Full on middle, and Bhuvi walks across the stumps to try and nudge it fine. Bhuvi's beaten for pace, and the ball has crashed into middle stump. Is that a no-ball? Nope!
Another stat: Top two batsmen for most balls faced without hitting a six in IPL 2019: Manish Pandey 43, Deepak Hooda 35
Stat alert: Tye's 5 for 17 is the best figures on IPL debut
back of a length on middle, and flicked off his hips to fine leg for a single
length ball on middle, and worked off his hips to the leg side
sliced, and mid off makes no mistake! Back of a length, cramping the batsman for room, and the attempted leg-side swipe goes flying into the air. Bumrah's first wicket of the night
play and a miss! Length ball on middle, and the delivery holds it's line after pitching. Nabi was expecting the ball to come into his body, and therefore misses the attempted flat-batted pull. Through to QdK
Chinna: "Alzarri Josephhh!!! Remember the name!! Missing Ian Bishop in the commentary! What an addition this guy is! Sensational pace bowing frm 22 yr old!"
length ball on middle, and he backs away to dab this fine to third man
length ball aimed at middle stump. Guided away to point
Baskar: "Calm down. Bhuvi's got this. After all, he's a student of MS ;-)"
length ball on leg, and he uncomfortably mistimes to the leg side
no, he can't! Out first ball. Sharp bouncer on middle, and Rashid takes his eyes off the ball while trying to pull. Gloves the ball into the air, and Joseph races towards the batsman to complete an easy catch. On a hat-trick!
Harry: "Here comes the afg duo.. But with the bat now. " -- yep, they need 49 off 26 balls. Can Rashid redeem himself after the drop in the first innings?
Vivekanand Gavi: "15.3 - It wasn't bairstow!" -- oops, meant QdK of course. Sorry for that!
Fatin Ishraq: "This is when you'd wish you had someone like Williamson or Shakib waiting in the dugout to come in next"
Rana: "It doesn't look good for SRH. Take away their best batsmen, send them away for international duties and what you're left with is a very unpromising batting line-up. And all of this we'll see towards the business end of the tournament. They better build a strong middle order fast. "
shatters the stumps! Full and straight, and Hooda tries to clear long on. Inside-edged onto middle stump and Joseph stands tall to soak in the applause. What a debut for the youngster. Timeout
full toss on leg stump, but going down the leg side again. Gotta reload, but Hooda's disappointed not getting any bat on it
slower ball, offcutter wide outside off but inside the tramlines. He tries to muscle an inside-out drive over cover, but can't get bat on ball. De Kock fumbles too, and that allows the batsmen to pinch a run
full on off, and he swings across the line. Mistimed to midwicket, but they're off for the single. Chance of a run-out at the batsman's end, but he can't get the direct hit
full on middle, but angling down the leg side. Hooda looks to swipe it over fine leg, but can't connect. Hyderabad will take the extra run though
yorker wide outside off, and it's even the slower ball. Batsman stretches outwards to reach at it, but can't connect
Dhaivat: "This is why rohit is a better captain than virat. Superb management of available resources. And consistent and better team selections."
flat-batted over long off! Ridiculous from Nabi. Back of a length, wide outside off, but Nabi backs away and muscles an uppish tennis-bat shot for six. Mid-off was inside the circle, so fairly calculated from the Afghanistan allrounder
Dave: "Let's see if Nabi can keep his unbeaten record in IPL "
short of length, outside off, looks to pull. But mistimed to short midwicket
