First IPL match ever, 22-years-old Alzarri Joseph steamed in, bowled the tournament's top run-scorer David Warner - off an inside edge - with his first delivery, and went on to have a debut beyond all fantasies.
In defence of Mumbai Indians' 136 for 7, which had only been made respectable by Kieron Pollard's 46 not out off 26 balls, Joseph produced one of the great IPL bowling performances. He claimed 6 for 12. Those figures broke an IPL record that had stood since the very first season, bettering Sohail Tanvir's 6 for 14.
Despite being posed with a modest target Sunrisers never got themselves moving. They lost their in-form openers inside the first five overs, and although several batsmen got starts, no one could push beyond 20.
