Pandya, Rana power MI to four-wicket victory against Sunrisers

However, MI have an upper hand, for they edged out SRH by 5 wickets at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. And the seamer clearly lacked the rhythm and control which had made him such a sought-after commodity in the richest twenty20 franchise league previous year. But after 10 overs, he may have second guessed himself, David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan (48) racing to 81 and setting a platform to launch from. But Jaspreet Bumrah and Harbhajan Singh stemmed the run flow, sharing five wickets between them as the run-scoring stalled midway through.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (Capt), Jasprit Bumrah, Jos Buttler, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Asela Gunaratne, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Johnson, Kulwant Khejroliya, Siddhesh Lad, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Parthiv Patel, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Punia, Nitish Rana, Ambati Rayudu, Jitesh Sharma, Karn Sharma, Lendl Simmons, Tim Southee, Jagadeesha Suchith, Saurabh Tiwary and R Vinay Kumar.

Result: Mumbai Indians won by four wickets.

Current IPL table holders, Sunrisers enter the game with an impeccable record against the Mumbai Indians from their last two encounters.

The U.S. officials also said they're aware of Russians with chemical weapons expertise who have been in Syria. The U.S. used the "deconfliction line" to warn Russian Federation ahead of time that the strike was coming.

While Hardik's performance for Mumbai over the years has catapulted him to the worldwide stage, Krunal Pandya also made a name for himself with his bowling performance for Mumbai in the last season of the IPL. They also have Indian swing master Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who took two wickets in the last match by giving 21 runs in his four overs.

The Powerplay overs produced 34 runs and that too after the Sunrisers skipper hit Malinga behind the wicket for two fours on either side.

Mumbai Indians don't have pretty things to say about the quality of umpiring in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. The burst by middle order batsman Nitish Rana (50) and the late onslaught by Hardik Pandya 29* (11) might have served as just the push MI required to find the momentum for the rest of the series. However, once he was brought into the attack in the seventh over, both the openers went after him. His 39-run innings had seven fours in it.

Williamson has yet to feature in the SunRisers' opening two games of the IPL despite being the third ranked T20 player in the world.
