Siddarth Kaul, who replaced injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar in Sunrisers Hyderabad for the IPL 2020 match against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, had a bad day at office as the pacer registered the most expensive figures for a bowler at IPL 13 so far.

Kaul, who was playing his first match of the season, conceded 64 runs in his 4-over quota in Sharjah thus going past Dale Steyn’s tally of 57 for the unwanted record.

The 30-year-old conceded 19 runs in his very first over of the IPL and later he leaked 21 runs in the final over. Kaul picked up 2 crucial wickets — Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya but failed to control the leakage of runs.

Here are the top 5 most expensive spells of IPL 2020 so far:

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians, who opted to bat first, could have become the first team in the tournament to register a score less than 200 in Sharjah. However, all-rounder Krunal Pandya smashed 21 runs in the final over of the innings to help the defending champions post 208/5 in 20 overs.

Pandya who walked into the wicket in the last over, smashed 2 sixes and as many boundaries in the 4 balls he faced. He finished with a staggering strike rate of 500.
Krunal’s knock proved out to be crucial as MI restricted SRH for 174/7 to win the game by 34 runs.

With the win, Mumbai went on top of the points table, while Hyderabad slipped to sixth position after the loss.
