- Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost two matches in a row.
- SRH are on 13 points and they will have to win this match against MI to stay in the race.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 is nearing its business end and every game from now onwards will be crucial. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Gujarat Lions (GL) and Delhi Daredevils (DD) are out of contention. Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are all in the race for that playoff spot.
SRH will take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in a crucial game on Monday. This is a must-win game for them to stay afloat in the race for IPL playoffs. David Warner and co. have lost two games in a row and are in some sort of a fix.
They were the only team who remained unbeaten at their home ground until their last game against RPS. It will be interesting to see if they can regain heir status of maintaining their fortress against the mighty Mumbai Indians on Monday.
The last time these two sides met at the Wankhede Stadium in this ongoing IPL season, Nitish Rana and Krunal Pandya powered Mumbai Indians to a four-wicket win. Mumbai Indians are unlikely to make any changes to their playing XI. Meanwhile, SRH will have to make one forced change as Ashish Nehra is injured and Mohammad Siraj will take his place in the playing XI.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha (wk), Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Siraj, Siddarth Kaul.
Mumbai Indians: Parthiv Patel (wk), Lendl Simmons, Nitish Rana, Rohit Sharma (c), Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Karn Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga.
