Hyderabad: In a short span of two games, Mumbai Indians' Lendl Simmons has made an impression and the opening batsman says he wants to hit a fifty in every outing to enhance his team's chances of reaching the IPL play-offs. Simmons (68) along with Ambati Rayudu (68) put on 130 runs for the second wicket as Mumbai chased down a 158-run target comfortably against Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Monday.

"As a team, we would want to win all the games and qualify for the playoffs. I want to do my part for the team by giving a good start and scoring with a good strike-rate. I want to score a half-century in every game and get my team off to a flier at the top of the innings," said Simmons. (Match Report | Scorecard | Highlights)
