Bhuvneshwar, a key part of SRH bowling line-up, missed their previous league game against defending champions Mumbai Indians. In his absence, the SRH bowlers were taken to the cleaners by the Mumbai Indians batsmen as they posted 208/5 in 20 overs. The target proved a far too much for the SRH batting line-up and they lost the tie by 34 runs.
After two wins from five matches, SRH are currently second from the bottom in the IPL 2020 Points Table. They will next face rock-bottom side Kings XI Punjab at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 8.
