Aussie big hits fail

SYDNEY - Big-hitting efforts from Aaron Finch and David Warner weren't enough to save Sunrisers Hydrabad in their IPL clash with the Mumbai Indians, who secured a resounding seven-wicket win with eight balls to spare.

The Australians together notched up 123 of the Sunrisers' 157 total, but the side was unable to contain the defending champions, who cruised to victory in 18.4 overs in Hydrabad.

After Hydrabad won the toss, opener Finch settled in for a long stay, watching two wickets fall before being joined by Warner at number four.

The pair added 63 runs in 54 balls, before Finch was caught out for 68 after his 62-ball spell.

Warner went on to smash 55 not out off 31 balls.

Hydrabad looked set to defend their total as they took an early wicket from Mumbai, but the partnership of Lendl Simmons and Ambati Rayudu put paid to that.
