2016 IPL champion vs 2017 IPL champion — it's a clash between two quality teams, both of whom have displayed their wares well in the current campaign. Mumbai Indians was all over Chennai Super Kings in the tourney opener before a bolt from the blue in the form of Dwayne Bravo poured water over its hopes of a rare bright start to the IPL. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, effected a thrashing on Rajasthan Royals, beating it by nine wickets with more than four overs to spare.

But it's an unpredictable league, and it's a clean slate so far.

Can the batting-heavy Mumbai Indians trump the quality bowling attack of Sunrisers?
