Mumbai Indians beat SRH and came back to winning ways. They won after losing three games on the bounce with Suryakumar Yadav scoring an unbeaten century in a crucial run chase at home.

That was his second IPL ton that helped MI come back to winning ways. MI are almost out of the race to the playoffs. They will end with 12 points which will not be enough but they can certainly derail the campaign for the teams in their last two games.
