SRH are off th emark on the points table. They were the only team without a win. Warner the captain finishes it off with a six over deep square leg off a pull. Earlier, Hooda joined the party and he along with Warner took the game away from Mumbai Indians. Hooda hammered Hardik for consecutive fours in the 16th over. A slash to third man and then a smash over deep mid-wicket. Tennis style forehand smash. Warner then lofted Bumrah over long on for six. He then followed Hooda and hit a tennis style smash over long off off McClenaghan for another six. He then finished it off in style in the next over to seal it for SRH.
After 15 overs, Hyderabad 108/3 ( David Warner 69 , Deepak Hooda 1)
The scoreboard is kept ticking. Warner has played a brilliant innings so far. He hits a couple of boundaries in the last three overs. Southee got the wicket of Morgan but SRH look in command needing 35 off 30 balls.
Catches can turn matches around. Incredible effort by Hardik to get Morgan. But Mumbai not back strongly till Warner's still there methinks!— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 18, 2016
OUT! Southee gets another one. Spectacular catch by Hardik Pandya. E Morgan c HH Pandya b Southee 11 (12b 1x4 0x6)
It's short outside off, Morgan pulls it to deep mid-wicket. It's dipping on Hardik who rushes forward, then to his left, dives and pouches it inches above the ground.
Deepak Hooda is the new batsman.
PREVIEW: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are expected to face an uphill task when they take on below par defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday.
Hyderabad suffered a terrible start to their campaign with big losses against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
The SRH bowling has been poor so far, suffering a hammering at the hands of Bangalore's Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in their first match and were blown away by Kolkata skipper Gautam Gambhir in their second game.
The batting has not been exceptional either. Shikhar Dhawan has carried his long run of poor form into the IPL which has put his opening partner David Warner under extra pressure.
In the middle-order, Moises Henriques and Deepak Hooda have struggled to get going. Apart from Warner, Eoin Morgan is the only other SRH batsman who is in good form, although Naman Ojha has shown some promise lower down the order.
Mumbai have also struggled to get going, losing two of their three matches. Their batting has been below par. Hardik Pandya has been a flop show in the number three slot while Rohit Sharma and Parthiv Patel have been promising but inconsistent.
Much was expected of Kieron Pollard, but the West Indies all-rounder has not been promising with the bat.
New Zealand pacer Mitchell McClenaghan has been the stand out performer among the Mumbai bowlers. The left-arm pacer has been extremely incisive and economical so far and could be among the highest wicket-takers this season if he continues his current form.
Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has not been at his best recently, but has more than enough experience to bounce back. With more bowling options in Tim Southee, Corey Anderson and Pollard, the SRH batsmen can expect a difficult time on Monday.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (C), Ashish Reddy, Ricky Bhui, Bipul Sharma, Trent Boult, Ben Cutting, Shikar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Deepak Hooda, Siddarth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Abhimanyu Midtun, Eoin Morgan, Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Mehra, Naman Ojha, Vijay Shanker, Karn Sharma, Barinder Sran, T Suman, Aditya Tare, Kane Williamson and Yuvraj Singh
Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Harbhajan Singh, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Jos Buttler, Kieron Pollard, Corey Anderson, Lasith Malinga, Martin Guptill, Mitchell McClenaghan, Marchant de Lange, Tim Southee, Unmukt Chand, Vinay Kumar, Parthiv Patel, Shreyas Gopal, Nathu Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Ambati Rayudu, Akshay Wakhare, Deepak Punia, Jitesh Sharma, Kishore Kamath, Krunal Pandya, Nitish Rana, Siddhesh Lad.
