The last time these two met at the ongoing edition of IPL, a certain Alzarri Joseph ran through Sunrisers Hyderabad batting line-up in a record-breaking spell as Mumbai Indians registered an emphatic win.

Cut to today. There’s no Alzarri whose season ended after an injury giving SRH some relief. But SRH are also without their two premier batsmen – openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow.

Facing MI at Wankhede is always a hard task and SRH know that. The contest is equally important for both the teams. A win here will further boost their playoff chances and neither would want their fate to be dependent upon late permutations and combinations.

Beating KXIP by 45 runs on Monday has boosted Sunrisers’ playoffs hopes. That victory has kept them in the top four. On the other hand, Mumbai lost their last encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders by 34 runs, and thus would be desperate for a win to confirm their berth
