In reply, Mumbai had a horrid beginning as they lost three wickets for just 21 runs inside the first six overs.However, opener Suryakumar Yadav and Krunal Pandya stabilize the ship with a 40-run partnership for the fourth wicket.But once Pandya departed in the 12th over, the home side once again lost their way and were bowled out for just 87 in the 19th over of the match.
Yadav finished the innings with the top score of 34 off 38 balls with the help of four fours, whereas Pandya scored 24 off 20 balls with the help of four boundaries as well.Yadav and Pandya were the only two batsmen for the home side who managed to enter in double figures.
