19:20 hrs IST

Player battle - Pandey vs Pandya

Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey looks like a shadow of his previous self this season as he hasn’t been able to recreate the magic of the past. Pandey will have to deal with Mumbai all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who enjoys a stellar record against the SRH batsman. Not only has Pandya dismissed the right-hander twice previously, the MI star has also kept Pandey quiet by giving away just 13 runs off 11 deliveries.

19:11 hrs IST

Player battle - Bairstow vs Bumrah

Like Warner, SRH opener Jonny Bairstow is also going through a purple patch that has seen him being placed just below the Australian in the orange cap list. But things aren’t going to be as easy against Mumbai as he will have to come up against Jasprit Bumrah, who has been the pick of the bowlers for the three-time champions. The two haven’t faced each other in the league previously and it will be interesting to see how the two superstars will look to cancel out each other’s influence in the match.

19:06 hrs IST

Player battle - Warner vs McClenaghan

With two fifties and one century in four innings, David Warner has been setting the league alight with some magnificent hitting. Against Mumbai, Warner will have to come up against left-arm pacer Mitchell McClenaghan against whom, the southpaw hasn’t been as productive as he would have liked. Warner has been dismissed couple of times by McClenaghan in the past but one good thing for the Australian is that his strike-rate goes up to 157.5 against the Kiwi in IPL.

18:57 hrs IST

Player battle - Rohit vs Sandeep

The contest between two Sharma’s will definitely be one of the top battles within this big war. MI skipper Rohit Sharma has been in good form as he has had starts in matches but the right-hander hasn’t managed to convert it into a big score yet. Things won’t get easier against Hyderabad as he will have to come up against medium-pacer Sandeep Sharma, who has caused problems for him in the past. Rohit has scored just 21 runs off 28 deliveries against him and has lost his wicket twice.

18:48 hrs IST

MI’s predicted XI

The form of Hardik Pandya is a huge shot in the arm for Mumbai, he has been firing on all cylinders with the bat and ball. Three cameos in as many games - 32(14), 31(19) and 25(8). He was superb with the ball against CSK too as he picked up three wickets for 20 runs in his 4 overs - Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jason Behrendorff, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah

18:40 hrs IST

SRH’s predicted XI

Kane Williamson is not yet fit and the side does not even need him, such has been the way they have played in the competition. Mohammed Nabi, who has been his replacement, has been brilliant with the ball and calm with the bat - Jonny Bairstow, David Warner, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul

18:32 hrs IST

Nabi’s riser

Mohammad Nabi has been powering Hyderabad since he was included in the playing XI as he took four wickets in his first match and continued with his form in his second match as well. Nabi took 2 wickets and gave away just 21 runs in his four overs and helped his side defeat Delhi Capitals at home on Thursday.

18:24 hrs IST

Will Malinga return?

Suryakumar Yadav dropped a hint that Lasith Malinga will return to Mumbai Indians soon, as the Sri Lankan bowler flew back to his country to play in the Super Provincial One Day tournament. “I do not think we are missing him for [the] whole season, not to our notice. He has done well and whenever we get him back, he will again start his service,” Yadav told media-persons on the eve of the match.

18:16 hrs IST

MI’s strategy

Against Sunrisers, the Mumbai batsmen will be hoping to go out all guns blazing, while the bowling unit would rely heavily on Bumrah to bail them out against the duo of Warner and Bairstow. The duo have been in sublime form and will once again look to take the attack to any bowling unit that crosses their path.

18:08 hrs IST

MI’s batting conundrum

Although Mumbai have a deep batting line-up, they are yet to play to their full potential. But having toppled a strong CSK side in their last game, they are expected to get the good work going. Against CSK, Suryakumar (59) and Krunal (42) enabled the team to reach 170 and then managed to contain them to 133 for eight.

18:00 hrs IST

Afghan spin duo

Among the bowlers,spinner Mohammed Nabi and Rashid Khan will be keen to fire in unison to counter the likes of Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Suryakumar Yadav, Quinton de Kock, Kieron Pollard and Pandya brothers (Krunal and Hardik).

17:52 hrs IST

SRH’s in-form openers

The marauding pair of Warner and Bairstow have been in scintillating form this season, having shared three century-plus opening stands in four matches. After a 118-run opening stand against KKR in a losing cause, Warner and Bairstow continued their dominance up the order with 110-run and 185-run partnerships against Rajasthan and Bangalore, respectively.

17:46 hrs IST

No Williamson again?

The Sunrisers were without the services of captain Kane Williamson during Thursday’s match against Delhi because of an injury and he is likely to be out again today. Bhuvneshwar Kumar led from the front as the seamer, along with Mohammad Nabi and Siddarth Kaul, chipped in with two wickets each to restrict Delhi to 129 for eight. And with opener Bairstow (48) once again shinning with the bat, the Sunrisers had a cakewalk, cruising to a five-wicket win.

17:38 hrs IST

Coming into this match

Mumbai defeated defending champions Chennai Super Kings, their first loss in four games, in their last match while the Sunrisers, after losing their opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders, went on the win against Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals.
