Kieron Pollard's blazing 66 off 27 balls lifted Mumbai Indians to a seven-wicket victory, with three balls to spare, over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL match at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Monday.

The West Indies ace single-handedly won the match for Mumbai. 

After Hyderabad put up 178 for 3, his 27-ball 66, inclusive of two boundaries and eight huge sixes, and his 85-run stand for the fourth-wicket with Rohit Sharma (20 not out) off just 37 balls, guided the home team out of a difficult situation. 
 

Mumbai finished with 184-3 in 19.3 overs and kept their unbeaten home record intact and moved to the top of the table.

Earlier, Parthiv Patel gave Sunrisers Hyderabad a flying start as he slammed Mitchell Johnson for four boundaries in the first over of the innings.

Patel started the match with a boundary through midwicket before hitting the last three balls of the opening overs for boundaries as the visitors scored 19 runs from the first over.

Shikhar Dhawan got off the mark with a six as he got a thick outside edge off Dhawal Kulkarni trying to hit it over the off-side and Patel hit another four in that over.
