HIGHLIGHTS: IPL 2019, SRH Vs MI – Record-Breaking Debutant Alzarri Joseph Sets Up Big Win For Mumbai

Debutant Alzarri Joseph produces the best bowling figures in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL) to set up a 40-run win for visiting Mumbai Indians against SunRisers Hyderabad at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Saturday

In previous 12 IPL head-to-head matches, SHR have won seven while MI won five.

That's some bowling performance. Alzarri Joseph now holds the record for best bowling figures in IPL. And he used only 3.4 overs. David Warner, Vijay Shankar, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Siddarth Kaul were his victims. The previous best belonged to Sohail Tanvir. The Pakistan pacer took 6/14 for Rajasthan Royals against Chennai Super Kings in the inaugural edition of the tournament.
