Mumbai Beat by Sunrises Hyderabad

Kieron Pollard remorseless hitting inflicted a crush injury upon the clueless Sunrises Hyderabad on Sunday, as Mumbai Indians set an almost-assured foot in the last-4 of this season IPL fight following an improbable 7-wicket wins.
Kieron Pollard bludgeoned 8 sixes in a surreal, unbeaten 27-ball 66 to pull his team out of the pits in the nick of time. Mumbai looked out for the count when they needed 62 off the last 4 overs, and that when the killing began. Thisara Perera went for 29, including 4 sixes, in the 17th, and then Amit Mishra was pasted for 21, with 3 more sailing over the ropes.
The end came unexpectedly on the back of 2 more maximums off Perera, as Mumbai romped home with 3 balls to spare and kept their winning home record whole. They also soared to the top of the points table with this win, and gave Kolkata Knight Riders another numerical possibility to hang their hopes on.
