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!
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.
FIFTY for Warner!
A responsible innings from the captain. He's paced his innings really well. Five fours and one six in his innings so far.
After 12 overs, Hyderabad 83/2 ( David Warner 49 , Eoin Morgan 8)
Just when it seemed Mumbai were getting back into the match, Warner and Morgan shifted back the momenum SRH's way. Warner lofted one over extra cover for four but then Southee bowled a brilliant over where he scalped the wicket of Henriques. He nearly had Morgan first ball with an inswinging yorker but it was drifting down leg. Warner and Morgan then got a four each off Harbhajan as Warner cut one through point and then Morgan reverse swept one through backward point. 27/1 in the last 3 overs.
OUT! Southee brought back and he strikes first ball. MC Henriques c Patel b Southee 20 (22b 1x4 1x6)
It's a full delivery outside off, an outswinger. Henriques stays in his crease and looks to drive without any feet movement, gets an outside edge to the keeper. A much needed breakthrough for MI.
Eoin Morgan is the new batsman.
After 9 overs, Hyderabad 56/1 ( David Warner 31 , Moises Henriques 19)
The 50 comes up for SRH. The 50-stand too between Warner and Henriques. They are starting to up the ante now. Bumrah bowls a decent over but then, Henriques takes on Harbhajan as he clobbers him for a six over deep mid-wicket and then late cuts him for four wide of short third man to make it 12 runs from the over. Warner then hammered Hardik Pandya over mid-wicket for four in the next over before a huge appeal for a caught behind was turned down against Henriques two balls later. 23/0 in the last three overs.
After 6 overs, Hyderabad 33/1 ( David Warner 23 , Moises Henriques 6)
Mumbai Indians have pulled it back. McClenaghan bounced back well after being hit for 10 runs in his first over. He gave away just 3 in his second. Bumrah started off with his yorker spree and gave away just 4. Warner then got a lifeline as Parthiv missed a stumping off Harbhajan. The off spinner drifted it down leg, Warner looked to flick on the walk but missed. Parthiv fumbled and that allowed Warner to get back in. A tough one but these chances need to be grabbed at this level. Just 11 runs off the last three overs.
Things which last longer than Shikhar Dhawan lasts on crease:

After 3 overs, Hyderabad 22/1 ( David Warner 18 , Moises Henriques 1)
Mumbai have got Dhawan early but Warner is looking dangerous out in the middle. The Australian, however, got a lifeline in first three overs. Southee bowled a brilliant first over where he gave away just four runs and got the wicket of Dhawan. Warner then lay into McClenaghan in the second over where he hit him for a six first ball, over extra cover and then a four through the same region one ball later. He the upper cut Southee over third man four four but Southee nearly had him as he foxed him with a slower one. Warner chipped it wide of mid off and Rohit couldn't manage to hold on after diving full length.

OUT! Southee strikes early! S Dhawan b Southee 2 (4b 0x4 0x6)
Earlier, Southee had nearly got through the defenses of Dhawan with an inswinging yorker, Dhawan was down on the ground trying to flick and then three balls later, Southee bowls a similar delivery, Dhawan misses his flick and it hits his pads and hits the middle stump.
Moises Henriques is the new batsman.
Back for the chase. Warner and Dhawan are the openers. Southee will start off.
Mumbai Indians have posted 142/6
A see-saw game. SRH on top earlier then Mumbai fought back with the crucial 63-run partnership between Rayudu and Krunal. And then brilliant death bowling from the pacers. Just 12 runs off the last 2 overs. 31/2 in the last five overs. Krunal remains not out on 49. He missed to dig the last ball which was a yorker and missed his fifty.
OUT! Hardik's struggle ends. H Pandya b Mustafizur Rahman 2 (5b 0x4 0x6)
A stinging yorker from Mustafizur. He's slowly mastering this art. Quicker on middle. Hardik looks to whip but it dips on him and hits the base of middle, Hardik was undone by the extra pace.
SRH have pulled it back. But Krunal is fighting it out in the middle. Bhuvneshwar gives away just 7 runs and then Mustafizur bowls a really tight over giving away just 5. Sran then gets Rayudu and completes a brilliant over with pace variations which foxes Hardik who misses his wild swings. 19 runs and a wicket in the last 3 overs.
First time in the history of #IPL two brothers (Krunal and Hardik Pandya) are batting together in the same innings!#SRHvMI
A bit of a mixed period for Mumbai. But they have definitely upped the ante. Rayudu had a heart in mouth moment when there was a miscommunication and he survived a run out and then Krunal mistimed his loft which fell in between the mid off and the long off fielder. Rayudu then hammered one over the head of Bipul for a six before Krunal went berserk with three sixes in a row, two over deep mid-wicket and one over long off. 26 runs came off Bipul's last over. A couple of misfields in the next over allowed a couple of fours more as Rayudu raced on to 49 and Krunal on 29. 44 runs off the last 3 overs.
Unless Corey is still carrying a niggle..It's a stupidity to not play him especially when you don't have a left hand bat in the middle order
Another three over period where a wicket falls. Mumbai have kept doing this throughout the tournament so far, losing regular wickets. 13 runs and a wicket off the last 3 overs. Bipul Sharma has bowled with good discipline so far and conceded just 14 runs off three overs.
OUT! Mumbai in some trouble now. JC Buttler c Ojha b Sran 11 (11b 1x4 0x6)
Buttler walks back to the hut. It's a short delivery down the leg side, an innocuous one. Buttler looks to pull but gets an edge to the keeper who makes no mistake.
Well, another surprise. Krunal Pandya walks out to the middle, ahead of his brother Hardik.
After 9 overs, Mumbai 54/3 ( Ambati Rayudu 26 , Jos Buttler 8)
Just when Mumbai were gaining the momentum, SRH have bounced back. Henriques bowls a tight over conceding just 3 runs in the 7th over and that builds the pressure and then MI lose Rohit off the first ball of the next over from Bipul Sharma. Buttler then released some pressure as he flicked one through square leg for four. However Henriques conceded just 7 in that over. Bipul then bowled another frugal over giving away just four runs. MI are stuck in inertia. 14 runs and a wicket off the over.
Rohit keeps getting involved in run outs. Most in IPL - 26. Was involved with Parthiv against KKR. Earlier with Kohli for India. #SRHvMI
OUT! Rohit is run out. He keeps getting involved in run outs! RG Sharma run out 5 (8b 0x4 0x6)
Rohit drives one to covers and straightaway sets off, Rayudu takes a couple of steps forward but sends him back. The fielder responds with a flat throw to Ojha who whips the bails off in a flash. Rohit dives but is found short on replays. This is a huge wicket for SRH.
Mumbai have done well to keep the scoreboard ticking despite Parthiv's wicket. He was getting into the groove as he hit a couple of fours off Sran, one a thumping pull and then a loft over mid off. He however departed in the same over. Rayudu then got into the act smashing Henriques over deep mid-wicket for a six and then flicking one through short fine leg for four. 28 runs and a wicket off the last three overs.
Rohit batting where MSD should bat. MSD batting where Pandya should bat. Pandya batting (earlier @ No.3) where Rohit should bat #IPL2016
This is a good start by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bhuvneshwar got some swing going in the first over and earned the wicket of Guptill. Rayudu, playing in his 100th IPL match, then got off the mark with a spanking cut through point for four. Sran, too got some swing and he bounced back well to concede just three runs off the next four balls in the second over. Bhuvneshwar bowled a bit wide in his next over but Parthiv slashed a couple straight to point. Mumbai 12/1 after 3 overs.
With Guptill in the side, Rohit at number 3 will be able to hold the vulnerable looking Mumbai batting better
OUT! Guptill has a forgettable debut! M Guptill c Ojha b Kumar 2 (4b 0x4 0x6)
He got off the mark with a couple through point. But then, Bhuvneshwar bowled a lovely outswinger, Guptill looked to defend off the front foot but was done in by the away movement. He ended up edging it to the keeper.
Well, well, No Rohit still. Ambati Rayudu strides out to the middle.
So no Rohit Sharma opening - Martin Guptill and Parthiv Patel stride out to the middle. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will start off proceedings.
Sunrisers Hyderabad win the toss and elect to field first!
One change for both teams — Bipul Sharma in place of Karn Sharma for Sunrisers and Martin Guptill in place of Kieron Pollard for Mumbai.
Hello and welcome to Firstpost's live coverage of the 12th match of the ongoing ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday. Stay tuned for over-by-over updates!
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
