Sharjah: Mumbai Indians delivered an all-round performance against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to secure a 34-run victory over their opponents in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Sunday.

Mumbai Indians batters put a massive total of 208 runs on the board before bowlers sealed the win for the team. Mumbai Indians’ Jasprit Bumrah, James Pattinson, and Trent Boult all took two wickets each in the match.

Chasing a massive target of 209 runs, SRH got off to a decent start with openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow smashing regular boundaries.

Both formed a 34-run partnership before Boult got hold of Bairstow (25) in the fifth over.

Manish Pandey then came out to bat and took the team over the 50-run mark, along with Warner.

Pandey played a knock of 30 runs from 19 balls before James Pattinson dismissed him in the 10th over.

Kane Williamson then joined Warner on the field and the duo took the team over the 100-run mark in the 11th over.

Williamson only scored three runs before getting out and Priyam Garg also failed to impress. Rahul Chahar caught a stunning catch to send Garg (8) back to the pavilion in the 15th over, bowled by Krunal Pandya.
