Both Sunrsiers and Kings XI have garnered six points after three wins from five games but the Hyderabad outfit is placed second in the eight-team standings on account of a better run rate.
Hyderabad were all out for 96 in 17.4 overs.
The fact that the absence of captain Kane Williamson, who is resting an injured shoulder, is not being felt at the top is a tribute to the consistency of the explosive opening duo of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Pandya was dismissed by Kaul for 6 runs.
He made his Test debut in 2016 and took 10 wickets in the West Indies´ recent home 2-1 series triumph against England, was named man of the match. "You get the information from the first ball so you know what variations you need to use", the 22-year-old said. "It was my first game, I wanted to get out there on the park and get bowling and get the wickets", he said. Deepak Hooda fought the lone battle but was out for 20 runs.
The burly Pollard hit two fours and four sixes, smashing the ball to all parts of the ground as Mumbai managed 39 runs off the last two overs. "Just put my whole effort into the team".
Joseph joined Mumbai on 28 March after New Zealand's Adam Milne was ruled out of the competition because of a heel injury and was only playing in place of absent Sri Lanka paceman Lasith Malinga.
Neighboring country implicated in the kidnap of American tourist
Police were combing a wildlife park in Uganda on Thursday as they searched for an American tourist who was kidnapped at gunpoint . An American woman was kidnapped Tuesday evening in Uganda and is now being held for a $500,000 ransom.
After being put in to bat, Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma put on 21 before the latter was caught in the deep off Mohammad Nabi.
"It's a dream start, can't get better than this".
"The last wicket because that gave us the win".
Stroke play was proving to be hard on a slow surface and the situation became worse for the visitors when the in-form opener Quinton de Kock (19) departed while trying to increase the scoring rate.
After Nabi completed his full quota of overs, his Afghanistan teammate Rashid Khan made life tough for the opposition batsmen. Siddarth Kaul took two wickets, while Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuveneshwar Kumar and Sandeep Sharma took one wicket each.
For so much of the innings, it seemed as if Mumbai would not post a competitive score. Bhuvneshwar Kumar won the toss and opted to bowl. Poor fielding let Hyderabad down towards the end of the innings.
