MI decided to bad; Rohit Sharma started with a great six off Sandeep Sharma but was taken out on the next ball trying to fetch a wide delivery, and MI lost their captain in the first over. Mumbai Indians struggled for the next few overs when Suryakumar Yadav was dismissed after 27 runs off 18 balls by Siddarth Kaul.

The openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow gave SunRisers Hyderabad a good start by making 34 runs in the first four overs. Bairstow was taken out by Trent Boult in the fifth over, then Manish Pandey came to join Warner. SRH was still struggling to reach the required run-rate, and Pattison sent Pandey back with 30 runs. Warner continued to push the score and took it beyond 100, but his brave 60 off 44 balls did not prove to be enough, and SRH ended on 174/7 after the 20 overs.

Mumbai Indians put forward an all-round performance and snatched the game from SunRisers Hyderabad.
