Mumbai Indians had a very tough task to post a mammoth target for SRH. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan started the innings with a bang and expressed their intentions straight away. Ishan in particular was more threatening with his wild bat-swing.

Ishan Kishan got out after scoring 83 runs in 32 balls and no other MI batsmen were able to trouble SRH bowlers barring Suryakumar Yadav. He got his eyes in first before unleashing his beast mode towards the end of the innings.

In the process, Suryakumar Yadav raced his way to a 24-ball fifty, which happens to be his fastest in the IPL. He was hitting boundaries for fun and scored 82 runs in 40 balls, which features 13 fours and three sixes. It was his innings that propelled MI’s total to 235/9 in 20 overs.
