Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner won the toss and decided to field first against Mumbai Indians.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to face an uphill task when they take on defending champions Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday.

Hyderabad suffered a terrible start to their campaign with big losses against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.

Mumbai have also struggled to get going, losing two of their three matches. Their batting has been below par. Hardik Pandya has been a flop show in the number three slot while Rohit Sharma and Parthiv Patel have been promising but inconsistent. Much was expected of Kieron Pollard, but the West Indies all-rounder has not been promising with the bat.

Sunrisers Hyderabad XI: D Warner, S Dhawan, M Henriques, D Hooda, E Morgan, N Ojha, AA Reddy, B Sharma, B Kumar, B Sran, Mustafizur Rahman

Mumbai Indians XI: Parthiv, Guptil, Rohit, Rayudu, Buttler, H Pandya, K Pandya, Harbhajan, McClenaghan, Southee, Bumrah.
