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.

Meanwhile, young SRH fast-bowler Umran Malik bowled a bouncer to Suryakumar in the 19th over which smashed his head. The bouncer rattled Surya. SRH fielders immediately signalled the medical staff to come. After being checked Surya was ready to resume his innings.
