However, skipper Rohit Sharma made a solid comeback and gave a stunning performance by scoring 80 runs off 54 balls, smashing 3 fours and 6 sixes.
He also formed a formiddable partnership with Suryakumar Yadav, who was run-out by Sunil Narine after scoring 47 off 28 balls. He was followed by Saurabh Tiwary who scored 21 runs.
Mumbai Indians star all-rounder Hardik Pandya walked into bat at number 5. A lot was expected from the star all-rounder, who has been a mainstay for Mumbai Indians for quite a long time. However, hopes of Mumbai Indians were soon shattered as Pandya soon walked back to pavilion after getting dismissed in a bizzare manner.
