Visakhapatnam: Sunrisers Hyderabad win the match from Mumbai Indians by a colossal 85 runs. It was a nightmarish beginning for the Mumbai Indians from the start of the second half. Not only were their shortcomings as a unit apparent, it was obvious that the batsmen were in no condition to face the bowlers. When Sunrisers put up a reasonable 177 for the Indians to chase, the expectation was that Mumbai Indians would follow suit and brace themselves for a good fight. However, Sunrisers proved too strong a team for the Mumbai Indians, and an excellent day in the field of Visakhapatnam proved exactly that.
