Kieron Pollard and Ambati Rayudu brought Mumbai back into the chase, by hitting the spinner, Karn Sharma and Amit Mishra for a flurry of sixes and fours post the 12th over mark. Rayudu though couldn’t carry on, as he fell to Irfan Pathan in the 16th over, trying to hit the left-arm bowler for a slog six over mid-wicket, where he holed out to the ever-so-safe David Warner.

But Pollard has continued his carnage. He brought up his fifty in the 16th over, off just 37 balls. Then, off Mishra in the 17th over

Earlier in the innings, chasing Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 172 for five to win their first IPL 7 encounter, Mumbai Indians didn’t start off on the brightest notes. They had a new opening pair in the form of Ben Dunk, who has replaced Michael Hussey in the line-up and Rohit Sharma, who promoted himself up the order to bring some change in fortunes.

But the ploy didn’t really work out for Mumbai as they lost their captain in the second over. Bhuvneshwar Kumar swung the ball into Rohit, and it crashed into his stumps breaking through his defence. Mumbai’s troubles didn’t end there. The out-of-form Corey Anderson replaced Rohit Sharma in the middle. But the New Zealander’s fortunes failed to change as he fell to Dale Steyn in the third over. He tried to duck under a not-too-high bouncer from Steyn, but ended up looping an easy catch to Naman Ojha.

Bhuvneshwar bowled well in tandem alongside Steyn. He followed up Steyn’s magnificent third over with an equally good fourth over. The Indian seamer conceded just a wide off the fourth over.

Leg-spinner Karn Sharma then replaced Steyn in the attack. Dunk welcomed him with a sweet uppish straight drive over mid-off for four. Dunk definitely liked the entry of Sharma into the attack, as he hit him for two fours in the leg-spinner’s first over. Replacing Bhuvneshwar from the other end was Darren Sammy. Sammy too got into the wickets column as he got rid of the dangerous-looking Dunk.
