- The Pandya brothers were at it again as they helped MI to notch up a win again.
- Sunrisers Hyderabad lost the plot while they were batting first.
Mumbai Indians racked up yet another victory at their fortress Wankhede Stadium by four wickets against an in-form Sunrisers Hyderabad. The home side came up with a clinical show to halt a two-match winning run of David Warner and co. With this win, Rohit Sharma's side has now climbed up to the third spot in the IPL 2017 points table.
Rohit Sharma had won the toss and the decision was but obvious - they chose to field first. Since IPL 2016, no team has won a match after batting first and Mumbai Indians took the advantage and lived up to their high standards.
Sunrisers Hyderabad could only post 158 runs in 20 overs and that was never going to be enough for sure. However, SRH did put up a good fight with the ball, especially Rashid Khan but could not help their cause. At the end Mumbai Indians reached the target with more than an over to spare at the end.
The Pandya brothers were at it again as they spoilt SRH's party. Hardik did a decent job with the ball and then it was Krunal's turn to turn the screws with the ball. Nitish Rana, who has been a revelation in this IPL 2017, got valuable runs with the bat as well.
At the end it was an easy victory for Mumbai Indians. SRH will be wondering how to get back to their winning momentum again as they have a couple of difficult games ahead of them in the coming days.
