Mumbai's disastrous defence of their Indian Premier League title continued as they slipped to their fifth successive defeat to start the season.
In the 20th and final game of the tournament to be played in the United Arab Emirates, the Indians went down by 15 runs to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Hyderabad, powered by a 110-run third-wicket partnership between David Warner and Lokesh Rahul, made 172-5 in their 20 overs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Mumbai could only manage 157-7 in their reply, despite a whirlwind 78 from Kieron Pollard.
Hyderabad were 44-2 at the end of the Powerplay after seeing potentially destructive openers Shikhar Dhawan and Aaron Finch dismissed by veteran seamer Zaheer Khan.
However, Australian Warner struck four sixes in his 51-ball 65 as he made his second half-century in three games before departing with 10 balls of the innings left.

Young Rahul, batting at four, worked the ball around in making 46 off 40 before he was removed in the final over.

In their reply, Mumbai slumped to 8-2 in the third over with captain Rohit Sharma and powerful New Zealander Corey Anderson both making just one.
Ben Dunk, the top scorer in the 2014 Big Bash League, replaced Michael Hussey at the top of the order but departed for 20 with just 32 on the board at the end of the Powerplay.
However, a partnership of 77 between Ambati Rayudu and Pollard gave Mumbai hope. The Indian was caught in the deep by Warner from Irfan Pathan's second ball for 35, but Trinidadian Pollard reached his first half-century of this year's tournament.

He then smashed 26 off the 17th over of the innings bowled by Amit Mishra. However, he faced just four balls in the next two overs and 20 was needed off Pathan's final over.
Pollard played on to the first delivery and went after hitting six maximums from 47 balls. With him went Mumbai's chances as Hyderabad moved to four points after their second win.
