It was a clash between the imposing batting of Mumbai Indians and effective bowling of Sunrisers Hyderabad at Hyderabad on May 1, this season and the latter came out all guns blazing.

The hosts restricted Mumbai Indians to just 129 runs thanks to some miserly bowling and then eased past the target without any complications. Shikhar Dhawan led the charge with an unbeaten 73 to complete a seven-wicket win with two overs to spare.
