Mumbai’s score of 208 was the seventh consecutive above 200 score in the IPL at this ground in Sharjah but Hyderabad failed to cross the 200 mark and suffered a loss. Mumbai’s innings took 14 sixes while Hyderabad’s innings took only seven sixes. Sunrisers captain David Warner said his team failed to read the circumstances properly.
Warner, who scored 60 off 44 balls in the match, said that his figures tell the story. Both of them (Bolt and Jaspreet Bumrah) are the best bowlers of the last over. We could not put a boundary against them. Sharjah’s wicket is slow in the day and we thought of making ten runs per over but could not make partnerships.

Warner said that I think we did not assess the circumstances correctly. During the day the pitch was slow but when the ball was old it was more difficult to take shots. Warner said that he missed the injury of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He said that two new bowlers came into the team due to injury of Bhuvneshwar. We can work on these things during practice. We failed to put the yorker properly and threw seven-eight fulltos.
