Big blow this for SRH, Hardik Pandya strikes immediately after the strategic time-out as Yuvraj Singh is bowled for 5.
Mumbai missed to victory against Knight Riders when the latter self-destructed while defending almost 35 runs in the last two overs.
Vary of the statistics; MI Captain Rohit Sharma will be hungry for redemption - what a fitting script it would turn out if in front of their home crowd at Wankhede.
The 20-year-old left-armer, who was named the best emerging player last year after taking 23 wickets for the champions, played his first match of the season yesterday, just a day after flying from Bangladesh to Mumbai. Led by Jasprit Bumrah's three wicket haul and quickfire knocks from the southpaw trio of Parthiv Patel, Nitish Rana and Krunal Pandya Mumbai Indians were able to overcome a surprisingly lacklustre Sunrisers Hyderabad team in their home ground.
Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 10The first two wins by Sunrisers Hyderabad state that the team looks like a profession unit which is exclusively focused on winning a second consecutive title, which wasn't done in many years.More news: W. Mosul's old quarter hit by airstrike; 11 killed
Skipper David Warner top-scored with a 34-ball 49 while Shikhar Dhawan made 48 off 43 deliveries. To Hyderabad's delight no one disappointed; especially with Yuvraj Singh destroying RCB bowling single-handedly. Spinners on the other side are playing a major role in the team's win and the team is expecting Krunal and Harbhajan to continue the form for the rest of the matches in the league in order to continue the winning streak. Sunrisers paid a whopping Rs 4 crore for wonder-boy Rashid.
Both Mustafizur and Rashid Khan are playing today.
Mustafizur inclusion will be a positive boost to the reliable duo of Nehra and B Kumar. Mustafizur alongside Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan and Ashish Nehra is possibly the strongest bowling attack anyone can field at batting-friendly Wankhede. We know how Warner plays upfront as well as Shikhar. Hopes that they will come good.
Mumbai Indians restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad for a small total of 158/8. Team batting second mostly wins the match.
The early momentum paved way for a smooth chase for the Mumbai Indians.
