The Mumbai Indians batters came out with a mission to dismantle the Sunrisers Hyderabad attack. In a must-win game, MI needed 201 to keep their playoff hopes alive, and they started the chase on an aggressive note.

The MI openers, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma gave a blazing start, before Cameron Green took the centre stage and slammed a 20-ball fifty to keep MI in the quest for yet another 200 plus run-chase.

Green was amply supported by Rohit Sharma, who started on a sluggish note, but put the peddle on the accelerator and smacked his second fifty of the tournament. Rohit and Green added 128 for the second wicket and it needed a special moment to break the partnership.

The moment arrived when Nitish Reddy grabbed a n un-imaginable catch that shocked the entire Wankhede Stadium.

At the time of writing, MI cruising at 192 for 2. They only need 9 runs off 19 deliveries to seal the win.
