Mumbai Indians (MI) produced a clinical all-round performance to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 55 of IPL 2024 on Monday. The high-flying SRH weren't allowed to get any momentum batting first. MI chased the target of 174 runs successfully with seven wickets in hand.

Hardik Pandya (3/31) and Piyush Chawla (3/33) put Mumbai on top before a late Pat Cummins cameo propelled SRH to 173/8. Jasprit Bumrah also contributed with one scalp. Mumbai Indians debutant Anshul Kamboj, who was initially denied by a no-ball and a dropped catch, took his first IPL wicket after dismissing Mayank Agarwal. Travis Head was the top-scorer for SRH with 48 runs.

In the second innings, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma disappointed once again as they got out early. SRH pacers Pat Cummins and Bhuvneshwar Kumar tried to control the Mumbai batting after early breakthroughs. However, Suryakumar Yadav's sensational unbeaten century in 51 balls supported by Tilak Varma's well-played 37 off 32 balls helped Mumbai Indians seal the victory.
