The encounter between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is likely to turn into a thriller as both the teams are looking to carry on with their winning momentum. Mumbai Indians pulled off a thriller against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their last game. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad thumped Gujarat Lions by nine wickets in their last match. 

 

The biggest news coming in so far is Bangladesh pace-sensation Mustafizur Rahman has joined the SRH squad and skipper David Warner will be itching to unleash the deadly duo of Rashid Khan and the left-arm seamer together. Ben Cutting in that case, will have to make way for the Bangladeshi seamer. 

 

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is unlikely to make any changes to his playing XI. The Pandya brothers were the stars of the show against KKR and they are likely to retain their places in the squad. Kieron Pollard is also likely to keep his place.
