Chasing 179, Dwayne Smith hit a couple of streaky boundaries off Dale Steyn in third over. Ishant Sharma drew first blood for SRH in the fourth over uprooting Smith's (21) middle stump. MI made 39 from the Power Play as Dinesh Karthik and Sachin Tendulkar went about consolidating the innings. At the halfway stage, MI were 73 for one, still requiring 106 runs.

Tendulkar (38*) stepped out and smashed Karan Sharma for a boundary and a six in the 12th over before he left the field retired hurt. Dinesh Karthik (30) was sent back the next ball caught by Cameron White off Karan Sharma. The leg-spinner then had Ambati Rayudu (2) stumped to leave MI three down in the 14th over. 

Rohit Sharma hit Ishant Sharma into the crowd before Kieron Pollard smashed a boundary to leave MI needing 66 from 30 balls. In the 17th over, Thisara Perera was taken apart for 29 runs as Rohit Sharma (20*) slammed a six before Pollard hit a boundary and three successive sixes. The carnage continued as Pollard deposited Amit Mishra for three massive sixes to bring up his fifty in just 20 deliveries – the third fastest effort in the IPL to get to the 50-run mark. With seven runs needed from the last over, Pollard smashed two sixes to see MI home with three balls remaining.

Earlier SRH won the toss and elected to bat. SRH got off to a rollicking start with Parthiv Patel smashing four boundaries off Mitchell Johnson’s first over. Shikhar Dhawan continued the assault with a six off Dhawal Kulkarni. Patel (26) who was dropped by Kulkarni on 25 was pouched in the deep a few balls later.

Dhawan slammed consecutive boundaries off Malinga to bring up his fifty. Johnson had Dhawan (59) caught behind in the 13th over to give MI their second wicket. Captain White hit consecutive boundaries off Kulkarni in the 14th, before smashing Pragyan Ojha for a six the next over. White, put down by Rayudu on 27, deposited Johnson into the crowd as SRH piled on the runs. Hanuma Vihari (41) was caught by Johnson off Malinga. White (43*) smashed the final delivery off Kulkarni for a six as SRH posted 178 for three.

Presentation

Cameron White: "For once, we posted a very good score. We were in the driver's seat and Kieron turned it on is head. Kieron saw Steyn off and took on the other bowlers, he's not an easy person to bowl to. Malinga bowled well at the death. It's a beautiful batting surface, we didn't take enough wickets up front. We need to win two from two to put some pressure on RCB."

Rohit Sharma: "It was an important game for us, hats off to Pollard. You don't need to tell him anything, he plays his natural game. Wankhede wicket has been brilliant throughout. We know the table is very tight, we pulled through. We don't want be complacent. We have to check what's happening with Tendulkar [his arm], I didn't get a chance to talk to him."

Pollard is Man of the Match: "I didn't have any breakfast today, I woke up 1am. It was an important game for us, I backed myself, it's just a matter of chasing the right bowler, Perera was the unlucky one. I haven't fired only in the last couple of games. Dwayne Bravo is one of my best friends, he is always backing me. My fingers have been battered, I have to tape all of them but the right hand is my bowling hand, so I can't do that. I am a power hitter but I love to bat as well. You have to take the good times, and the bad times."
