Warner and Dhawan perished when well set. But, more importantly, no wicket fell, something which allowed them take advantage later in the innings. Led by Parthiv Patel's assault at the top of the order, they mustered 61 runs. Mustafizur alongside Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan and Ashish Nehra is possibly the strongest bowling attack anyone can field at batting-friendly Wankhede.

The tenth edition of the Indian Premier League is unfolding some brilliant performances. It is highly unlikely that their views would be any better after this match. Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya will then be seen in action. Lot of credit goes to the bowlers and the fielders.

Though Sunrisers will be happy with Warner's display.

And going by television replays, Jasprit Bumrah got away at least once with a no-ball as the umpire failed to spot his overstepping left foot. Both his games though have been played on a large outfield in Uppal. The Afghani young bowler has done some outstanding bowling in the matches so far and you can expect that he will continue with the good work in the matches to come.
