Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders have been eliminated on basis of NRR with this result. MI managed 149/8 in 20 overs. In reply, SRH sailed past the target. Here are the records broken.
Mumbai Indians, who had Rohit Sharma back, didn't get the impetus. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals. For SRH, Sandeep Sharma and Jason Holder were terrific with the ball and restricted MI to just 149. Kieron Pollard (41) was the top run-scorer. In reply, SRH got off to a dream start and they got things under control.

Sandeep Sharma (3/34), who raced to 13 scalps this season, has seen his overall wickets tally rise to 108. Sandeep has now taken 53 IPL wickets in the powerplay overs. That's the most by any bowler.
Kieron Pollard became just the 17th player to surpass 3,000 career IPL runs (3,014). He went past Brendon McCullum's tally in terms of career IPL runs (2,880). He has raced to 198 career IPL sixes as well.
David Warner surpassed the 500-run mark in IPL 2020. He became the third player to do so. The SRH captain slammed his 48th career IPL fifty. Warner also got past 600 runs against MI. Wriddhiman Saha slammed his eighth career IPL fifty and a second this season. Their century-plus stand is SRH's highest stand for any wicket against MI in the competition.
