Despite valiant efforts from the Mumbai Indians’ batters, who were chasing a mammoth target of 278 runs, they ultimately fell short by 31 runs.

Chasing a mammoth target of 278 runs MI commenced their innings with a blazing start, led by Rohit Sharma’s aggressive onslaught against Jaydev Unadkat, while Ishan Kishan displayed his prowess against Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Despite the early wickets of Sharma and Kishan, Mumbai’s Naman Dhir and Tilak Varma showcased their mettle, propelling the chase forward with a display of aggressive strokes. Varma’s explosive batting, marked by an impressive half-century, kept Mumbai in contention. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s skipper, Pat Cummins, strategically struck back dismantling Mumbai’s middle order. Hardik Pandya and Tim David, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s disciplined pace attack held firm, securing victory by a margin of 31 runs for their side.
