Tristan Stubbs was run out at the non-striker’s end as the Mumbai Indians suffered a three-run defeat by the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL.
The 21-year-old made a two-ball duck on his IPL debut against the Chennai Super Kings last week.
And he lasted just two balls in his second match on Tuesday, when Tim David kept out a yorker from Bhuvneshwar Kumar only for the bowler to deflect the ball back on to the non-striker’s stumps.
Stubbs, who received his maiden Proteas T20 call-up earlier in the day, was left stranded several yards out of his crease.
That reduced Mumbai to 144-5 after 16.4 overs and they would end on 190-7 after 20 overs, with 2016 champions Hyderabad snapping their five-match losing streak. The Sunrisers stay eighth on the 10-team table with a slim chance of making the final four.
Indian batsman Rahul Tripathi smashed three sixes in his 44-ball 76 to guide Hyderabad to 193-6 after being put in to bat at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
Tripathi put on big partnerships, including a 76-run third-wicket stand with West Indies left-hander Nicholas Pooran, who made a 22-ball 38.
Indian medium-pace bowler Ramandeep Singh attempted to check the Sunrisers’ surge with twin strikes in one over, including Tripathi and South Africa’s Aiden Markram for two.
Mumbai bowlers did pull things back and pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah gave away just seven runs in the 20th over and kept Hyderabad to below 200, a score that looked on the cards when Tripathi was batting.
Bumrah, called India’s yorker king, bowled Washington Sundar on the final delivery to reach a milestone 250 T20 wickets.
In reply, Rohit (48) and Ishan Kishan put on 95 runs for the opening wicket to raise Mumbai’s hopes of a chase.
Sundar denied Rohit a fifty and speedster Umran Malik, a standout performer for Hyderabad this season with 21 wickets, soon took over to rattle the opposition batting.
Malik started with a 17-run first over but came back strong with the wickets of Kishan (43), Tilak Verma (eight) and Daniel Sams (15) to return figures of 3-23. He clocked the fastest delivery of the match at 154.8km/h.
Tim David, an attacking middle-order batsman from Singapore, then smashed T Natarajan for four sixes in a 26-run 18th over to give Hyderabad a scare.
David scored an 18-ball 46 before being run out and with Mumbai needing 19 off the final 12 balls, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a maiden 19th over and took a wicket to help Hyderabad prevail in the thriller.
