A quickfire 73 not out from opener Shikhar Dhawan carried the Sunrisers Hyderabad to a comfortable seven-wicket triumph over the Mumbai Indians in Wednesday's Indian Premier League clash at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal.

Dhawan faced 55 balls, hitting nine fours and a six as the Sunrisers chased down a target of 130 with two overs to spare at the Rajiv Ghandi International Stadium.

Dhawan was well supported by Kumar Sangakkara (21) and Hanuma Vihari (25) during stands of 37 and 74 for the second and third wickets respectively.

The Indians had earlier struggled to 129-4 after opting to bat first.

Opener Dwayne Smith top scored with 38 off 40 deliveries and Ambati Rayudu injected some much-needed late momentum with 34 not out from 27 balls.

Ishant Sharma was the standout bowler for the Sunrisers with 2-15 from his four overs.

The result leaves both the Sunrisers and Indians among four teams on 12 points, four behind IPL leaders Chennai Super Kings.
