TOSS: Rohit Sharma spins the coin, and David Warner calls it heads, and it's tails. Sharma said, it's an obvious choice to bat second. Mumbai bat first.
And here is one fact which will keep captains in a spot, that existential to be or not to be...

To start with, here are five players to watch out for today. The list sure includes both the skippers and one rock-star.
Leaders Sunrisers Hyderabad travel west to take on Mumbai Indians, who will be confident on the back of a thrilling victory against Kolkata Knight Riders, when Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya produced fireworks in the end to give the team their first victory of the campaign.
The two-times IPL champions, led by Rohit Sharma, will be put to test facing David Warner's table-toppers, who haven't put a foot wrong in the campaign so far.
Batting first, SRH handed RCB a 35-run defeat in the season opener after posting 207 runs on the board. While in their second match, they restricted a batting-heavy Gujarat Lions line-up to mere 135-7 and subsequently, cruised to a 9-wicket win, chasing down the total in just 15 overs.
Bangladesh star Mustafizur Rahman has joined the squad and is likely to be selected straight in the playing eleven, considering his limited availability to IPL this season.
Here's everything you need to know about Match 10 of IPL 2017:-
Likely XIs for today's match:-
Mumbai Indians: Jos Buttler, Parthiv Patel (wk), Rohit Sharma (captian), Nitish Rana, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga
