Ishant's double strikes lifts Hyderabad
Twin strikes in one over from Ishant jolted the Mumbai Indians camp as he followed the wicket of Tendulkar with the scalp of in-form Dinesh Karthik for a duck.
Karthik was caught at point by Karan Sharma trying to play an uppish drive.
Ishant registered wonderful figures of two for 15 in four overs, including a maiden over.

Mishra continues good form
Leg-spinner Amit Mishra continued his good form with the ball as he took for two in four overs.
Mishra removed both Rohit Sharma (22) and Dwayne Smith (38) in the same over as Hyderabad's bowlers never allowed the Mumbai batters to flourish.
Mishra is currently the joint highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 16 wickets in 10 games, the same tally as James Faulkner (7 games) and Dwayne Bravo (10 games).
