It's our most clinical performance: Rohit Sharma

"It was a perfect game, most clinical performance put by us. This is our capability and we always expect this performance," Rohit said.

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma described their comprehensive seven-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad as their most clinical performance of IPL-7.

"It was a perfect game, most clinical performance put by us. This is our capability and we always expect this performance. We bowled well to restrict them and to chase it down like that, it was simply superb," Rohit said after Mumbai easily chased down the target of 158 with eight balls to spare.

"To bowl at Warner and Finch that well is not easy. I must credit all the bowlers. Today was a perfect day, Simmons smacked it right from the beginning and Rayudu kept it solid," he said.

Opener Lendl Simmon and Ambati Ryudu contributed 68 runs each and stitched 130 runs for the second wicket to set up up the comfortable win for Mumbai.

Rayudu, who was adjudged Man-of-the-Match, said, "My head was in UAE, my legs were in Hyderabad and my bat was somewhere else. It was all going haywire, so I had to get it all together. Simmons took a lot of pressure on me, i could go and play all my shots."

A disappointed Hyderabad captain Shikhar Dhawan said his side were short by 20 runs.

"We were probably 20 runs short here. 157 was not bad but Mumbai batted well," Dhawan said.

"We are not used to losing much here at home. This was a new track here and we were not sure of how it would play."
