Tanmay Agarwal scored a brilliant half-century (59), but T Ravi Teja, an all-round player, carried on his excellent run with the ball, taking four wickets (4/32) and contributing significantly to the win. Hyderabad now stands second in the points table with 30 points, one point ahead of Mumbai, who have also won five of their last six games.
Tanmay Agarwal, a former captain of Hyderabad, batted first and produced a methodical innings. With the help of three boundaries and as many sixes, he smashed 59 in 46 balls.

Ravi Teja removed Jaiwal in the opening over despite giving up 17 runs in the first three deliveries. Mumbai was reduced to 69/3 in 8.1 overs when he removed Shivam Dube in the ninth over and Mumbai captain Rahane in the seventh over.
