Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad faced each other in Hyderabad in the 7th match of the IPL 2018. Mumbai lost their first match against Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener and Hyderabad inflicted a 9 wicket defeat on Rajasthan Royals in their first match.

Mumbai was asked to bat first as Kane Williamson of SRH won the toss. MI brought in Ben Cutting and Pradeep Sangwan for injured Hardik Pandya and Mitchell McClenaghan. SRH had to bring in Sandeep Sharma for his SRH debut, in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Though Lewis (29 in 17; 3x4s, 2x6s), Rohit (11) and Kishan (9) started off well, Kaul removed Kishan and Lewis in one over and Stanlake removed Rohit to peg MI back. Krunal Pandya (15) and Kieron Pollard (28 in 23) tried to rebuild the innings, along with Suryakumar Yadav (28 in 30), led MI to 147/8.

Siddarth Kaul (2/29) and Sandeep Sharma (2/25) were the pick of the SRH bowlers. They were supported well by Stanlake picked 2/42, Rashid Khan picked 1/13 and Shakib picked 1/34.

Twitter was amazed the way the defending champions played, especially their captain Rohit Sharma, who got out for a rash shot. The Twitterati reacted strongly to this performance and tweeted their emotions.
