Put to bat first, Mumbai Indians got off to a disastrous start, losing out on both of their openers for a duck.
Captain Rohit, who has been struggling for form, offered a catch to Mitchell Santner while trying to hit an in-swinging delivery through mid-on and got dismissed for a duck off the bowling of Choudhary.
In a span of two balls, Ishan Kishan was castled for a duck. The bowler was Choudhary, again. In the final delivery of the third over, Choudhary struck for the third time in the match to dismiss Dewald Brevis.
Suryakumar Yadav could provide some resistance, scoring 32 off 21 balls. But his stay was cut short by Santner. Mumbai Indians were reduced to 47 for 4 in 8 overs.
Mumbai Indians are currently occupying the 10th spot on the points table with six defeats in six matches.
