Mumbai registered comprehensive successive wins over Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first two homes matches of the season at the Wankhede Stadium, but they faltered against Chennai at home on Saturday. Hyderabad, on the other hand, seem to have found their mojo as they have bounced back to win 4 matches out of the 8 they have played so far.

Commentary (Mumbai Indians 1st Innings)

That's it from us then! Join us tomorrow for the double-header. Chennai take on Jaipur in the first game and Bangalore will take on Delhi in the second match. Until then, good bye and take care!

Man of the Match - Ambati Rayudu. Says his head was in UAE but legs were in Hyderabad. Adds Simmons took off some pressure as he was scoring freely. Wants his side to win all the remaining matches.

Crucial win for Mumbai to keep their chances alive in this tournament. Still work to do for Hyderabad as their bowlers struggled in their home ground, where they have succeeded earlier.

Good all-round victory for Mumbai! They didn't concede a lot of runs earlier and their batters did the job while chasing. Simmons and Rayudu scored fifties as they stretched a match winning century-run stand. The bowling didn't click for Hyderabad as only Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of the bowlers while others struggled.
