Commentry

So that's it from us! With this Hyderabad win, Delhi have been knocked out of the tournament. They have no chance of qualifying for the playoffs anymore. Punjab are the only team left with a chance now but if they lose any of their remaining three matches, they'll be out of the running as well. They have a big home game coming up tomorrow against Kolkata at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Do join us for it. Cheers!

Man of the Match, Shikhar Dhawan says he's quite happy to be included in the Champions Trophy squad. Adds when David Warner got out early, he knew he had to stick around and build a partnership which he did with Moises Henriques, who was superb as well. Mentions he worked hard on a lot of things, like consistency and his technique, so is happy that it's working out as he put all his love and heart into it.

Hyderabad captain, David Warner credits his bowlers for restricting the opposition to such a small total which was easy for his batsmen to chase. Appreciates Kaul, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar for bowling really well. Adds that he told his top four batsmen that one has to stay till the end and Dhawan did that for them. Reckons Nabi was called in to counter Simmons who has been batting well and they had a long boundary on one side to support that. Mentions that every win is important for them as they and they are treating every match as a knockout.

Mumbai captain, Rohit Sharma says the batting was the problem as they didn't have enough runs on the board. Admits 138 was nowhere close to what they should have been getting. Mentions that Hyderabad stuck to their plans and they (Mumbai) kept losing wickets which wasn't ideal. Adds they wanted to try something different as they haven't batted much and it didn't pay off. Further adds they have to regroup as they have another game in two days and will try to turn it around. Once again states 138 was too less and understands that if you don't keep taking wickets at regular intervals, it'll always be too hard. Ends by saying it's an eye opener as to what they need to do when batting first, lessons to be learned from this as they can be asked to bat first in the coming matches.

Dhawan and Henriques stabilized the ship really well and stitched an important partnership of 91 runs to take the game away from the visitors. The former registered another fifty to his name and saw his team through to accumulate two important points under their belt. Earlier in the evening, Mumbai posted a total around 140 on the back of a stunning Rohit Sharma fifty, but eventually that proved to be insufficient.

Hyderabad were exceptional today and they have gathered a victory against the table toppers. They started off beautifully with the ball where they restricted the tourists to a total under 140. Such a total would have never been enough against a side who posses a batting line-up such as the home side. The away side sniffed some respite when they sent back Warner early but you can say that was the only cherry for their bowling attack.

Jasprit Bumrah to Vijay Shankar

FOUR! That should do it, Vijay Shankar finishes it off in style. It's on a fuller length around off, Shankar gives it the full swing of the bat and lofts it over wide mid on. Falls just inside the rope and goes across on a bounce for a boundary. HYDERABAD WIN BY 7 WICKETS AND 10 BALLS TO SPARE! A comfortable win in the end.

Lasith Malinga to Shikhar Dhawan

IN THE AIR... BUT IT'S SAFE! Malinga takes the pace off this and bowls a slower length ball on middle and leg, Dhawan gives the charge and is early into the shot as he lofts it over mid on. Pollard there runs behind and with the ball coming over him, dives forward to take it but it's too far away from him. Hard chance. Two runs are taken.
