Hyderabad 162/5 after 18 overs: Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad are struggling to pierce the gaps. Hyderabad needs 47 off 12 deliveries.

Hyderabad 158/5 after 17 overs: Abdul Samad has played two gorgeous shots off Bumrah but this game is slipping away from Hyderabad. Needs 51 off 18 balls.

Hyderabad 144/5 after 16 overs: Big wicket and Ishan Kishan with a stunning catch at short third man packs off David Warner. This should be the turning point of the match and Mumbai from here on needs to bowl sensibly to pocket the match. Those 20 runs from Krunal Pandya in the last over will make all the difference in the end.

Hyderabad 139/4 after 15 overs: Krunal Pandya chips off Priyam Garg but it was Rahul Chahar who owns the wicket with an excellent catch near the ropes. Hyderabad needs 70 runs in 30 balls.

Hyderabad 123/3 after 13 overs: Trent Boult shifts the momentum towards Mumbai with the wicket of Kane Williamson. But good thing for Hyderabad, Warner is still out there. Priyam Garg joins his skipper.

Hyderabad 94/2 after 10 overs: There's the breakthrough and it's James Pattinson who has removed the well-set Manish Pandey. An excellent 19-ball 30 but Pandey had to play a greater impactful innings. Kane Williamson joins David Warner.

Hyderabad 86/1 after 9 overs: This is just fantastic batting and both Warner and Pandey have set this chase nicely. Warner smokes Rahul Chahar on to the roof before Pandey slapped one over cow corner. 16 runs from the over. Hyderabad requires 123 runs in 66 balls.

Hyderabad 70/1 after 8 overs: An eventful over comes to an end as Hardik Pandya hands Manish Pandey a life after dropping a dolly at deep and Pollard bowls a rather long over, teasing the batsmen with his variations.

Hyderabad 59/1 after 7 overs: Nice little comeback from Mumbai as Krunal Pandya dries up the boundaries. Just three runs off it.

Hyderabad 56/1 after 6 overs: David Warner has found his rhythm as he welcomes Jasprit Bumrah with two back to back boundaries. Warner can get dangerous once he gets going. Manish Pandey, meanwhile is playing like a well-oiled machine as he drives Bumrah just past the bowler with timing written all over the shot.

Hyderabad 42/1 after 5 overs: Trent Boult strikes as he removes the well-set Jonny Bairstow, who flayed a slower one straight into the hands of Hardik Pandya in the deep. Manish Pandey is out and is off the mark with a couple of crunchy boundaries.

Hyderabad 34/0 after 4 overs: James Pattinson bowls an excellent over as he denies Bairstow and Warner any width and this is going to be interesting. While Bairstow has raced away, Warner is struggling to time the ball.

Hyderabad 20/2 after 2 overs: Jonny Bairstow has come out with a lot of positive intent and has taken the initiative of taking the attack to the opposition. Moves quickly to double digits.

Hyderabad 8/0 after 1 over: Jonny Bairstow is up and running as he opens his account with a six over long-off.

Alright we are set for the chase and it will be Jonny Bairstow along with David Warner. For Mumbai, it will be Trent Boult with the ball.

Mumbai 174/4 after 18 overs: Hardik Pandya survives a close lbw decision as Pandya along with Pollard hammer Sandeep Sharma for 15 runs.

Mumbai 159/4 after 17 overs: Hardik clubs Natarajan for a maximum but the bowlers comes back to give just four singles.

Mumbai 149/4 after 16 overs: Rashid Khan 4-0-22-1 is done with the ball and Mumbai will now try and take the attack to the opposition.

Mumbai 147/4 after 15 overs: Manish Pandey makes it up for the drop as he plucks a brilliant one to pack off Ishan Kishan, who largely struggled to put bat to ball. Kieron Pollard joins Hardik Pandya.

Mumbai 134/3 after 14 overs: Ishan Kishan smokes Rashid Khan for a maximum but the Afghan recovers before taking the wicket of Quinton De Kock.

Mumbai 126/2 after 13 overs: 59 runs have come from the last five overs and Hyderabad needs a wicket.

Mumbai 111/2 after 12 overs: Quinton de Kock reaches his fifty and the Mumbai opener is back in the scheme of runs.

Mumbai 94/2 after 11 overs: Spinners have slowed down the progress for Mumbai but De Kock and Ishan Kishan are well-set and should be accelerating.

Mumbai 90/2 after 10 overs: Surprise! Kane Williamson rolls his arms over and bowls a decent over as he given just seven.

Mumbai 83/2 after 9 overs: Quinton de Kock is well-set and is motoring on nicely. Ishan Kishan is yet to find his feet but is playing the role of a second fiddle.

Mumbai 67/2 after 8 overs: Rashid Khan concedes a boundary and De Kock is riding his luck as he almost chopped on to his stumps.

Mumbai 59/2 after 7 overs: Manish Pandey has dropped a sitter - according to his own standards and has given Quinton de Kock a life. Abdul Samad was close to picking a wicket but he has been denied.

Mumbai 48/2 after 6 overs: Against the run of play, Suryakumar Yadav departs and Siddarth Kaul gets his 50th IPL wicket. Nothing delivery, down the leg and Surya flicks straight to Natarajan at short fine leg.

Mumbai 38/1 after 5 overs: Excellent from Natarajan as although he went for a boundary in the very first ball, he comes back nicely to give just six. 

Mumbai 32/1 after 4 overs: David Warner might have erred by stopping Sandeep Sharma the previous over and giving Siddarth Kual the ball. Sandeep is bowling beautifully but a well-set Suryakumar is dealing in boundaries. 

Mumbai 25/1 after 3 overs: Suryakumar Yadav is up and running with three boundaries and he is timing the ball sweetly. A drive through the extra cover region was the pick of the shot.

Mumbai 7/1 after 2 overs: Excellent start from T Natarajan as he gives just a single. Suryakumar Yadav is yet to get off the mark.

Mumbai 6/1 after 1 over: Wicket in the first over as Sandeep Sharma takes the prized scalp of Rohit Sharma. Rohit smacks the first six of the game with an authoritative pull over deep mid-wicket and then chases a wide delivery only to get a faint edge. Hyderabad take the review and the on-field umpire had to change his review.

Alright Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are out in the middle and it will be Sandeep Sharma with the new ball.

Sunrisers has rung in two changes - one forced change as Siddarth Kaul comes in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma replaces Khaleel Ahmed. Mumbai, unchanged.

Mumbai Indians wins toss and elects to bat first

Mumbai Indians: Quinton de Kock (w), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (w), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, T Natarajan

Rohit Sharma: We will bat first. It has been our strength and we will back that. It is a good pitch and the toss doesn't really matter. The game against KKR was also a perfect game. We have seen few games here, you have to believe and trust your instincts when you play in grounds like these. We are playing the same team.

David Warner: Definitely would have batted as well. Exactly the same what Rohit was saying there the way our team shapes up we are confident in our bowlers to defend. We have seen some high totals here but it also gives a chance to the bowlers to pinch a couple of wickets. I think Bhuvi is a big loss for us.

Pitch Report: Day game, win the toss, bat first and try to defend it. It's sunny and warm afternoon and the pitch has got nothing. There is no bounce for the spinners, there is no bounce for the pacers - reckon Simon Doull and Murali Kartik.

Afternoon game at the home of sixes in Sharjah, Mumbai will look to continue its winning momentum, but Hyderabad is no pushover.

It's a Super Sunday and we are moments away from toss. Fasten your seat belts as this is going to be yet another day where the bowlers will have to chase leather.

On that note, Sunday’s day game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad will surely be a clash of equals since both the teams will be in action at Sharjah for the first time this season.
