England opener Jason Roy hit a brisk 31 but could not prevent Gujarat Lions sliding to a second straight defeat in the Indian Premier League.

Roy gave his side a good base, hitting five of his 21 deliveries to the boundary before being undone by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, but a total of 135 for seven proved far too modest to contain hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Australia pair David Warner and Moises Henriques put on an unbeaten 108-run stand to seal a nine-wicket win with 27 balls to spare.

England vice-captain Jos Buttler contributed 28 runs as Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knight Riders in a last-over thriller.

Buttler’s team-mate Hardik Pandya hit a four from the penultimate ball to secure a four-wicket win at the Wankhede Stadium.

England’s Chris Woakes removed Kieron Pollard for his first IPL wicket but contributed just nine runs with the bat for the Knight Riders.

Kolkata’s Manish Pandey top-scored with an unbeaten 81 from 47 balls in his team’s total of 178 for seven.
