5-WKT HAUL ON DEBUT FOR ALZARRI JOSEPH! WOW. Bhuvneshwar is gone for 2. SRH- 95/9
Alzarri Joseph again
WICKET! Alzarri Joseph gets Rashid Khan for a first ball duck- pace, bounce and it is too much for Rashid! Gone for a duck! Alzarri Joseph's spell: 3-1-7-4 | SRH- 89/7
BOWLED! Hooda is gone for 20. What a debut Alzarri Joseph is having- his 3rd wicket of the evening. Only 7 runs conceded. Strategic timeout taken. Hyderabad need 49 runs in 26 balls. SRH- 88/6
Excellent four overs from Rahul Chahar. He mixed attacking slow speeds and flighted balls with more defensive faster speeds and shorter lengths - he combined attack and defence expertly. His spell- 21/2 in 4 overs. SRH- 84/5, 15 ovs | Hyderabad need 53 runs in 30 balls
Another one goes down! This time it is Yusuf Pathan who departs for a duck! SRH have lost half their side with the score on 62. Rahul Chahar picks up the wicket. He has been really impressive tonight. This time uses the overspin to counter Pathan's sweep and it does the trick. Hyderabad needs 75 runs in 52 balls.
OUT! Manish Pandey is gone for 16. A safe catch for Rohit Sharma. The pressure finally got to him Jason Behrendorff strikes. SRH- 61/4
Alzarri Joseph is the second bowler to bag a wicket-maiden in his very first IPL over. Pat Cummins from Australia is the other player to achieve this rare feat.
Alzarri Joseph strikes again
OUT! Debutant Alzarri Joseph has got his second wicket in the form of Vijay Shankar. He hurries Shankar with his extra pace to bag his second. SRH- 42/3
Dropped! Another sitter goes down and this time the culprit is Pollard-Manish Pandey gets a reprieve on 0. Are the extra pair of lights at the ground creating a problem for the fielders? Powerplay Ends! SRH- 39/2

SRH motor ahead
Low full toss from Bumrah. Warner takes two followed a single off the last ball to keep the strike. SRH - 14/0, 2 overs
Warner and Bairstow are at the crease. Warner is on strike. Behrendorff will open the attack. A four of the last ball and SRH are 8-0 after 1 over.
MI- 136/7 after 20 ovs
19 came off the last over. Pollard's cameo has given Mumbai something to bowl at. Pollard's power-hitting (46* off 26) was simply spectacular as 56 runs came off the last 4 overs. SRH look dejected. MI- 136/7 after 20 ovs
Nabi puts it down and Kieron Pollard gets another maximum! Mumbai are getting the momentum they need. Then a four. WOW! Pollard is turning it on.
Kaul is hit for a six by Pollard. He follows it up by a yorker wide outside the off stump. No-ball, Siddharth Kaul. More importantly, KP will face the freehit. And it is out of the ground! 20 came off the over. MI- 117/7.
Pandya hits a six off the first ball of Rashid's over and then sweeps straight to deep midwicket off the third. That is a big blow, Pandya is the in form batsmen for MI.
Into the last five overs
MI only have 76 on board but it is Hardik and Pollard in the middle. It means they can still post a competitive total and if the pitch has something in it for pacers, which is what seems like the case at the moment, Jason Benhrendorff and Jasprit Bumrah can make things happen.
RUN OUT! Ishan Kishan
It looked Jonny Bairstow had hit the stumps prematurely while trying to catch the ball as Ishan Kishan struggles to make his ground. But replays show that Bairtstow had managed to uproot the stumps before Ishan had managed to cross the crease.
Krunal Pandya top edges the delivery, the ball loops up and settles nicely in the hands of Jonny Bairstow. Siddharth Kaul has got another, SRH are tightening the noose.
10 overs gone
Mumbai crawl past the 50-run mark. SRH had dropped Rohit Sharma early on. There are not many teams in the world that can get away with dropping him and still dominate the match.
OUT! De Kock falls!
Tries to send Kaul to the boundary, ends up getting holed out at midwicket. De Kock was early into his shot and the delivery was a bit on the slower side. Deepak Hooda has a straightforward catch to take.
SRH have been dominant thus far. MI hardly able to get going and their run rate has remained just above 5 thus far. Two fours and two sixes and Rohit Sharma is dismissed too.
Two wickets in two overs! This time it is Sandeep Sharma who gets Suryakumar Yadav. A full delivery, Yadav looks to play accross the line and takes it full on the pads. Umpire takes his time to raise the finger and the batsman goes upstairs. The ball is pitching in line and the impact is umpire's call.
OUT! Rohit is gone
Mohammad Nabi gets the breakthrough for SRH. He tosses it up outside off, Rohit bites, goes for long on and ends up holing out at midwicket.
Here we go!
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock open the batting for MI, Bhuvneshwar Kumar starts the attack. Match 2 of the double header is underway.
The 22-year-old Antiguan was one of the heroes of West Indies' recent 2-1 victory over England in a Test series. His mother died on the morning of the first day of the second Test and yet, he came out and took two wickets each in both innings to help seal the series for his team.
SRH are going with the same XI that played in the previous game. MI will be handing West Indies' Alzarri Joseph a debut while Yuvraj Singh is replaced by Ishan Kishan.
SRH win the toss, choose to bowl first
Bhuvi walked out for SRH with Rohit Sharma for the toss so Kane Williamson is not available.
Mumbai Indians: Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Jason Behrendorff, Rahul Chahar, Alzarri Joseph, Jasprit Bumrah
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (c), Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
Hello and welcome!
Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have been in such good form this season that MI would be in uncharted territory if they manage to get one of these two out in the powerplay overs. So good have SRH's opening pair been that they have often left the team's famously strong bowling lineup, and indeed the rest of the batsmen, with little to do after their innings. MI are also without Malinga so they might just start as the underdogs in this match. Let's get right down to it.
