The game will commence at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT), but as always, our build-up will begin much sooner. See you then. Cheers!
6:08 PM IST Suryakumar Yadav is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his brilliant ton under pressure.

5:57 PM IST Time for the presentation ceremony...
5:56 PM IST Tilak Varma of Mumbai reflects on their approach, emphasizing the return to basics and playing with a straight bat, especially with Suryakumar Yadav's presence, which kept them competitive.

5:56 PM IST Hyderabad's captain, Pat Cummins, reflects on the innings, noting they might be a couple of runs short. He acknowledges the challenging conditions in the initial overs, crediting Sunny's presence for their final score of 170. Despite contemplating the impact of a fast bowler, Cummins maintains uncertainty in T20 cricket outcomes. He highlights SKY's performance, emphasizing its pivotal role in altering the game's dynamics. Looking ahead, Cummins hopes for thrilling moments in future matches, embracing the unpredictable nature of the sport.
5:55 PM IST Earlier in the game, after inserting Hyderabad into bat, the Mumbai bowlers did not get the reward they deserved early on but did well not to allow the explosive Hyderabad opening pair to get away. It was an unusual struggle for Abhishek Sharma, but Travis Head got going as he always does. Head got a couple of reprieves off the bowling of the debutant, Anshul Kamboj, once when he was bowled off a no ball and later when he was dropped. However, he could not make the most of those lives, and Nitish Kumar Reddy perished soon after. Piyush Chawla and Hardik Pandya helped Mumbai dominate the middle phase, picking up three wickets each. Despite reducing Hyderabad to 136-8, Mumbai let them off the hook as Pat Cummins breathed life into his side's innings and took them to 173 with an unbeaten 35-run knock.
5:50 PM IST Having reduced Mumbai to 31-3, Hyderabad had a real shot at taking home those two points and moving out of the mid-table muddle. However, they came up on the wrong side of a Suryakumar Yadav masterclass and just did not have enough runs on the board. Having scored 39 runs off the last three overs of their batting effort to finish with 173, Hyderabad had the momentum with them at the halfway mark. However, they could not translate that into their bowling effort in the first couple of overs as Bhuvshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen failed to control the swing. Jansen, Bhuvneshwar and Pat Cummins soon got into the groove and made the new ball talk to nip out Mumbai's top three inside the Powerplay. They had their tails up at that stage but just could not build on that start with the ball. Moreover, they failed to contain boundaries and slowly Suryakumar Yadav began to take the game away from them. Pat Cummins was left scrambling for a breakthrough but it never came as Suryakumar Yadav remained unbeaten on 102 and handed Hyderabad their 5th defeat of the season.
5:45 PM IST TAKE A BOW, SURYAKUMAR YADAV! Innings of the highest order by one of, if not the best in T20 cricket, and the Mumbai fans, who have endured a tough season, were treated to something really special. With this emphatic win, Mumbai lift themselves off the bottom of the standings. In their pursuit of 173 runs, Mumbai were off to a brisk start as they were helped by the extras bowled by the Hyderabad new ball bowlers. The start soon became a shaky one as their top three were blown away in real quick time. Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma then got together to steady the ship for the hosts. Suryakumar played the aggressor role as he found boundaries with regularity, while Tilak was happy playing the second fiddle. Suryakumar notched up a 30-ball fifty and kept going despite the groin issue. He accelerated from fifty to hundred in just 21 balls and took Mumbai over the line through his second Indian T20 League ton.
