Champions Mumbai Indians shrugged off an early loss of their captain Rohit Sharma to end at 208 for five wickets in their day game against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Quinton de Kock anchored the innings with a fluent 67 off 39 deliveries, starring in a 78-run partnership with Ishan Kishan (31) which set the launching pad for a 200-plus total. Just when the Sunrisers pacemen and Rashid Khan seemed to have done the containing job well, the ‘engine room’ of Pandya brothers and Kieron Pollard caused maximum damage in final four overs. The Orange Army will look for one of those flying starts from the David Warner-Jonny Biarstow combination if they have to make a match of it.
