==============================================================

TOSS: Shikhar Dhawan won the toss and decided to bat first.

Sunrisers are playing with the same squad while Pragyan Ojha replaces Praveen Kumar in the Mumbai squad.

==============================================================

It has been a forgettable series for Mumbai Indians. They lost five matches in a row and their winning streak at the Wankhede Stadium was ended by Chennai Super Kings. Their batsmen haven`t performed on a consistent basis and even the bowlers haven`t managed to defend paltry totals.

It will be a challenge for the Mumbai batting line up to score a big total against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who boast of a quality bowling line-up. None of the batsmen have performed on a consistent basis and there is a lot of pressure on skipper Rohit Sharma, to do the majority of run scoring for the team. Mumbai need to make better utilisation of Corey Anderson and Kieron Pollard, who are currently two of the most destructive batsmen in world cricket.

Sunrisers Hyderabad on the other hand are slowly getting back in their groove. The team management would want the two Australians – David Warner and Aaron Smith – who did a good job in the UAE leg, to play some crucial knocks in India tournament as well. A big knock is due from Shikhar Dhawan and while the Indian skipper continues to find his rhythm, the onus is on the veteran Australians to take their side to a big total.

In the bowling department, the Sunrisers are a balanced side as they have Dale Steyn, who spearheads the pace bowling attack, while Karn Sharma and Amit Mishra have begun to trouble the batsmen on Indian pitches. SRH have a big advantage in Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been more successful that Dale Steyn.
