IPL 2017: Hardik Pandya miraculously survives TERRIFYING fall in Mumbai

Sunrisers had started the defence of their title with two victories, but they came unstuck at the Wankhede Stadium, where the home side followed up their win over Kolkata Knight Riders with another impressive success.

Mumbai have welcomed their star bowler Lasith Malinga and spinner Harbhajan Singh into their squad. He is the 1st Indian and 12th in overall to take 50 T20 wickets at a venue. It took a stunning, full length diving catch by wicket keeper Parthiv Patel after he ran some yards to his left to send back Warner off Harbhajan when the batsman attempted a reverse sweep and provide MI with the breakthrough in the 11th over.

Playing their third match of the fixture -beating Royal Challengers Bangalore by 35 runs in the opener and Gujarat Lions by nine wickets - SRH looks the most prepared side among all the eight playing teams.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh have been amongst the runs in the opening game while Henriques has nearly cemented the No.3 slot after blasting consecutive fifties. To Hyderabad's delight no one disappointed; especially with Yuvraj Singh destroying RCB bowling single-handedly.

Four of Rashid Khan's five wickets this season have been bowled or lbw.

Firstly though, MI will have to think hard about what is their best team combination. Sunrisers paid a whopping Rs 4 crore for wonder-boy Rashid. Rashid Khan has been the surprise package setting the stage on fire, Yuvraj Singh has been a total revelation and if the reports are to be believed, Mustafizur has joined the team as well.

Mustafizur inclusion will be a positive boost to the reliable duo of Nehra and B Kumar.

Though Sunrisers will be happy with Warner's display.

KKR thought they had a really good bowling attack, but were trumped by some outstanding final overs batting from MI.

Mumbai won the toss and opted to field in what turned out to be a wise decision, given the recent success of teams batting second at this ground.

The opposition, Hyderabad has been having a great IPL and it is not very likely that the team will change the formation of the team that it is having now.

Mumbai Indians continue their fine form at home.
