Mumbai Indians gave in a thoroughly professional performance when it mattered the most to walk away from Hyderabad with two points. However, off the field too, the Mukesh Ambani owned team emerged victorious by getting more mentions on the social media.

Hyderabad made a decent start only to see Shikhar Dhawan getting deceived by a Malinga slinger and get out for 11 out of 11 deliveries. Finch held his ground on one end and formed partnerships first with Lokesh Rahul and then with David Warner before getting out for a 62 ball 68. Warner came into action in the last two overs as Sunrisers Hyderabad collected 33 runs from them to post a respectable total of 157/3 on the board.
In reply, Mumbai lost opener CM Gautam early after the Bangalore born wicketkeeper-batsman played a loose shot on Bhuvaneshwar Kumar’s first delivery of the match. The reliable Ambati Rayudu walked in and combined well with Lendl Simmons as the duo saw off the opening spell from the Purple cap holder Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Dale Steyn only to go out all attack against the likes of Irfan Pathan and Amit Mishra. The duo gave away 62 runs in the 5 overs they bowled which proved fatal for Sunrisers Hyderabad who now have very little hopes of progressing to the playoffs.
