But Rasid khan was not effective in a match against Mumbai Indians with only wicket of Saurab Tiwary. Sun risers Hyderabad won’t have quality pacers over the spinners in their bowling division.

If your frontline bowler went wicket less you can’t expect the team to win a match. Defending 150 Mumbai Indians (MI) was no where in a match in the second innings when they have failed to get defend or even get a single wicket.
Mumbai Indians has to come with some strategy in the next match to make it to the finals one more time.

Another frontline bowler went wicket less and won’t even completed his spell of 4 overs. This strategy looked absurd to not let your frontline pacer to complete his spell of 4 overs. If you keep your best players insecure you can’t expect the team to win.
