Dhawan downs lacklustre Mumbai

By on May 8, 2017

An experienced display of batting by Shikhar Dhawan resulting in 62 runs from 46 balls complimented by 44 from 35 by Moises Henriques, allowed Sunrisers Hyderabad to cruise to a comfortable victory over Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad today. Mumbai had won the toss and in experimental style to aid their preparation for the upcoming playoffs, opted to bat first. The innings struggled to find momentum however, and even with Rohit Sharma scoring 67 from 45, Mumbai were only able to scratch together 138, on a seemingly two-paced wicket. Sunrisers typically aggressive batting style then enabled them to chase down the modest total with relative comfort, passing their target with 10 balls to spare.

Mumbai Indians 138/7 (20 Overs)
