Reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and a confident SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) will look to maintain their winning form when they clash at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
Both teams have four points from four games, but the Rohit Sharma-led MI are ahead in the points table, courtesy a better net run rate.
Both teams are coming after winning their previous games. While MI hammered Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), SRH came out victorious in the southern derby against three-times champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Friday night.
Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s injury gives Mumbai Indians edge over Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team will have to bring in Siddarth Kaul or Basil Thampi to replace their main bowler.
