After winning the toss, Warner elected to bowl first. Rohit Sharma, who returned to Mumbai Indians after recovering from the injury, opened the innings with Quinton de Kock. However, he failed to contribute yesterday as he got out at the individual score of four. Then, Kock and Suryakumar Yadav displayed their hitting skills. The two were on their way to stitch a long partnership, but Sandeep Sharma sent Kock to the pavilion at the individual score of 25. Yadav also gave away his wicket after some time, scoring 36 runs. Ishan Kishan, who had opened the innings with Kock in a few games, batted at number four against SRH. He made 33 runs in 30 deliveries, before getting bowled on Sharma’s ball. Finally, Kieron Pollard, with his powerful hitting, helped Mumbai cross 140-mark. He scored 41 off 25 balls. MI’s innings ended on 149.
Hyderabad’s openers Warner and Wriddhiman Saha chased the target set by MI comfortably. Both the batsmen once again scored half-centuries. Warner smashed 85 (not out) off 58 balls, while Saha scored 58 in 45 deliveries.
