TOSS UPDATE:  Rohit Sharma wins toss and Mumbai Indians will bat first

Playing XIs

◘ About 10 minutes to go for the toss and both teams are in a huddle. Remember, Mumbai Indians, which has 14 points from 12 fixtures, can become the third team to qualify for the IPL 2019 playoffs with a win, while Sunrisers Hyderabad, with 12 points from 12 matches, will move a step closer as well if it wins tonight. Its net run rate of +0.70 is comfortably above every team in the league. An SRH win will also knock Rajasthan Royals, which can achieve a maximum of 13 points, out of the competition.

◘ Sunrisers Hyderabad team management has an important selection call to make. It must choose whether Martin Guptill or Billy Stanlake replaces David Warner, who has joined Australia's World Cup preparatory camp in Brisbane. His replacement has big boots to fill and it could have a bearing on tonight's match.

◘ Put yourself in Kane Williamson and Tom Moody's shoes and tell us what you'd do.

 

◘ Mumbai Indians' Kieron Pollard was effusive in praising Hardik Pandya when he addressed the media on the eve of the match: "He (Hardik Pandya) is a small guy but hits the ball a long way. And once he continues to practice well and continues to evolve as a cricketer, you can see him doing great things not only for Mumbai Indians but (also for) Indian cricket.”

◘ The Sunrisers Hyderabad players have reached the Wankhede Stadium, where they beat Mumbai Indians in the corresponding fixture last season.

 

◘ As the Wankhede Stadium is in all readiness to host a humdinger, here's the preview of the match, by Shayan Acharya.

MI vs SRH PREVIEW

It’s a do-or-die battle for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Kane Williamson-led side, which reached the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) last year, stands in a tricky situation this time around, with 12 points from as many games.

And it desperately requires a win against Mumbai Indians on Thursday to stay in contention for a playoff berth.

With Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals having already reached the playoffs, the contest for the next two slots have spiced up. Mumbai Indians has 14 points and a win here will help the side become the third team to reach the last-four stage, while Sunrisers too needs a victory to keep its hopes alive.

But coming into the fixture, Sunrisers is without its star opener, David Warner, who has flown back to Australia to join the camp for the World Cup. Warner had a terrific outing -- amassing 692 runs from 12 matches -- and his absence could impact the team’s chances. However, with a strong batting line-up starring captain Williamson, Manish Pandey, all-rounder Vijay Shankar, the visiting team look quite strong, at least on paper. And to add to it, Wriddhiman Saha returning to form is another boost.

With a perfect mix of pace and spin, bowling department has always been an area of strength for Sunrisers. Even as its spinner, Rashid Khan, is in red hot form, but on Thursday, a lot would depend on how its pacers -- Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed fare.

Mumbai Indians hasn’t had a remarkable outing at home. It has won three of its five outings at the Wankhede and it will be a challenge for the side to tackle Sunrisers.

The home team looks well settled with South African Quinton de Kock -- 393 from 12 matches -- and captain Rohit Sharma -- 307 runs from 11 games -- at the top.

The middle-order is taken care of by hard hitters Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard, who have been in good touch. But for the home team, it is important that Surya Kumar Yadav and Krunal Pandya convert the starts into bigger scores.

In the bowling department, Mumbai will miss left-arm Australian pacer Jason Behrendroff, who has also headed home to join the World Cup camp. But with Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga and Hardik around, the pace department looks formidable.

Both the teams hope to play some smart cricket, but they are aware that one slip-up here could dash their dreams!
