IPL 2020: Sunrisers Hyderabad's Mitchell Marsh ruled out for ankle injury

Royal Challengers Bangalore had notched up 163/5 and Sunrisers Hyderabad were in a good position at 121/2 but a spectacular collapse of eight wickets for 32 runs saw Sunrisers Hyderabad fall short by 10 runs.

Young Australian wicketkeeper batsman Josh Philippe secured a deal with the RCB following his impressive run as an opener in the Big Bash League. There are a few things that happened during this game that I have never seen before.

A source associated with the team has said that it is a serious injury and I can not say for sure whether he will be able to play in the following matches. Devdutt Padikkal was in fine form and Aaron Finch was also looking in great touch. Against the Sunrisers, it was Padikkal who set the early pace with seven boundaries in the powerplay as opposed to Finch's one. That was really impressive, the way he carried himself out there, and once his innings started to develop, how much he grew in confidence. You understand roles and you understand game scenarios a little bit more. There have been handful of games so far and they (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah) are totally different surfaces. He made his debut for the Chennai Super Kings against the Rajasthan Royal in 2013 and last featured in the league in 2016. Although, it was speculated his ruling out from the tournament, this time it has finally confirmed that the all rounder won't able to play this edition. Probably the last three games and the game in Sharjah last night, probably there was more dew than expected from us. "I am really happy that he played his natural game", he added. But you still have to play your best and can't use that as an excuse. He showed great courage and came out to bat despite the pain.
