Kieron Pollard, the MAN OF THE MATCH, says it depends on the situation as to who goes out to bat in the middle. Adds that the batsman has to decide their strong areas and see what the bowler is trying to do. About his bowling, Pollard says that he wants to bowl more overs when it's coming out well. Praises both Bumrah and Boult for the way they bowled towards the end and defended the score.

Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai skipper, says that it was a great effort from the bowlers and they executed the plans well. Adds that they thought it was a good score that they put on. Further adds that they can bat better in the middle overs. Tells that the pitch got slower and slower which makes it difficult to chase. Feels that even against seamers, it is not difficult to score boundaries straightaway. Says that one batsman needs to bat throughout the innings and finish well. Tells that Pollard has done it for them so many times and adds that they always had confidence in Pollard to get them to a good score. Ends by saying that their fielding was superb in this game and it is something that they take pride in.

Hardik is caught for a chat. On his brilliant run outs, Hardik says that he just makes sure that the ball is in his hands and then the next target is the stumps. On Warner's wicket, Hardik says that he didn't expect him to be that far. Says that they have a lot of character in the team. Feels Hyderabad were off to a fine start but the bowlers pulled back things nicely. Tells that they bowled as a unit. Ends by saying that they have a lot of experience in the team.

David Warner, the Hyderabad captain, says that it is disappointing to lose like this. About his wicket, says that it was a brilliant piece of fielding. Adds that the score was chaseable but they needed someone to bat through the innings. Further adds that the wicket was a touch slower and that their bowlers did well but the batters let them down. Informs that they will have to talk to the physios regarding Kane Williamson's fitness.

Earlier in the game, after getting a bright start from Rohit and de Kock, Mumbai struggled in the middle overs. Hyderabad after getting the first wicket pulled things back nicely. Shankar was the man who got two to push Mumbai on the back foot. Mujeeb too bagged 2 and along with Rashid kept the scoring rate under check. Khaleel too was excellent in his 4 overs. In the final 2 balls of the last over of the innings, Pollard banged 2 sixes and took Mumbai to 150. A total that turned out to be a bit too big for Hyderabad in the end.

It was another strong bowling show from Mumbai. The wicket sure was tough to bat on. But Mumbai looked in all sorts of trouble when Bairstow was taking them apart. However, once they got the breakthrough, they did what they do best. They choked the opposition in the chase. Chahar once again showed his class and picked up three wickets. Pandya's brilliance in the field saw Warner head back to the pavilion. In the last 4 overs, Bumrah and Boult were just too good for the opposition.

Chasing the total, Hyderabad were off to a flier. It was Bairstow who opened for the side and tonked everyone who came in his way. He though got hit wicket trying to play a slog sweep. And after that, Hyderabad lost the way. They just kept losing wickets at regular intervals and could never make a comeback. Warner's run out sealed their fate. Shankar tried but couldn't do it against the quality Mumbai bowling.

A roaring comeback from Mumbai once again to seal the deal. They just are so good in conditions like these. Once they got the opening, they never allowed Hyderabad to get back in the game. Just superb bowling performance from them. Take a bow, Mumbai!

W 19.4
Trent Boult to Khaleel Ahmed

OUT! BOWLED! There it is! Mumbai have done it again! A fast yorker on the stumps, the tail-ender batsman fails to get any bat on it. Khaleel Ahmed has his furniture shattered by Trent Boult. MUMBAI WIN BY 13 RUNS!!
