After a duck in the last game, opener Jonny Bairstow managed a 25 (off 15 balls) before falling to Trent Boult in the fifth over.

Opener David Warner then stitched a 60-run stand with Manish Pandey, taking SRH to 86/1 in 9 overs. But in the next over, pacer James Pattinson gave Mumbai a breakthrough by removing Pandey for a 19-ball 30.

Warner went on to score his maiden half-century of the season in his fourth match, off 34 balls. He batted on, giving the Mumbai Indians’ bowlers a tough fight, but couldn’t get support on the other end of the crease.

Kane Williamson faced just five balls before falling to Trent Boult for 3. Priyam Garg (8 off 7 balls) followed him back to the hut after getting caught out by Rahul Chahar, reducing SRH to 130/4, still needing 79 off 35 balls.

11 balls later, Ishan Kishan took a stunning catch to remove the well-set Warner for 60 (off 44 balls) off a delivery by Pattinson.

None of the incoming batsman could take Sunrisers across the line. The 18-year-old Abdul Samad scored a 9-ball 20, Abhishek Sharma added 10 (off 13 balls) while Rashid Khan (3*) and Sandeep Sharma (0*) remained not out.
