New Delhi: Defending champions Mumbai Indians take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal today.
Compared to last year, Rohit Sharma and his boys have had a decent start this year where they have won one of the three matches so far.
After losing the opening encounter to Rising Pune Supergiants, Mumbai were back to winning ways when they chased down a formidable 187-run total against Kolkata Knight Riders. Their last match against Gujarat Lions proved to be a last-ball thriller, where Aaron Finch played a match-winning unbeaten 67-run knock.
Kieron Pollard is a destructive T20 player and after scores of 1, 1* and 1 respectively this season so far, Mumbai need the West Indian to bounce back with a big knock against Warner & Co.
On the other hand, SRH lost their previous two matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Moises Henriques was a consistent performer for Hyderabad last year and the Aussie will have to crank his performance up by several notches against Mumbai.
Here are the possible playing XIs of both the teams:
Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), Jos Buttler, Kieron Pollard, Ambati Rayudu, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Krunal Pandya, Tim Southee, Mitchell McClenaghan
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Eoin Morgan, Naman Ojha (wk), Deepak Hooda, Naman Ojha, Karn Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mustafizur Rehman, Brainder Sran
