flat_wicket_bully posted a topic in ArchivesMumbai Indian vs SunRisers Hyderabad Match scheduled to begin at 20:00 local time (14:30 GMT) vs VS Preview Having overcome the Chris Lynn threat and an in-form Kolkata Knight Riders, the challenge only gets bigger for Mumbai Indians as they will be up against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday (April 12). Sunrisers are one of only two teams that is yet to taste defeat in IPL 2017. The defending champions have carried on from where they left off in the summit clash in 2016, starting in clinical fashion. Mumbai Indians will be keen to use their home advantage and try to emulate what Sunrisers have done so far, which wouldn't be such a simple task as they will face a quality side that is further boosted by the return of Mustafizur Rahman - their hero from last season.Mumbai Indians' two innings with the bat so far have been pretty similar - a good start, followed by a heap of wickets and then Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya coming to the team's rescue. Buttler, who has looked in ominous form, hasn't been able to make a sizeable contribution yet and has been at the wrong end of two bad umpiring decisions. He will be eager to make a big impact at the top, as would Rohit, who is yet to hit the straps, with poor umpiring denying him that opportunity in the last match. The likes of Parthiv Patel, Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya have flattered to deceive, and MI will be hoping that they come good soon.Another concern for Mumbai is that their pacers haven't been a major influence so far, and the cascading effect of that is runs being leaked both at the start and the death. Mitchell McClenaghan has been a shadow of his previous season's version - an economy rate of 10.87 is testimony to that. However, the Mumbai think-tank may not be hasty in taking a decision on the New Zealand left-arm seamer, who has played pivotal roles in the past. Meanwhile, MI will be pleased with the performance of the spinners in their last game and will hope that Krunal and Harbhajan Singh can continue in the same vein.Going by their performances so far, Sunrisers Hyderabad look a thoroughly professional unit whose single-minded focus is clinching a second title in as many years. The contributions have been evenly spread, which is a very good sign and speaks about the efficiency of the team. However, the immediate trial for SRH is to keep the show going in away matches as well, with the game against Mumbai being followed by a game in Kolkata.The middle-order concerns of last year seem to have vanished this season. The likes of Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh and Deepak Hooda have all been among the runs while both David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have been playing their usual roles at the top. Among the bowlers, Afghanistan's 18-year-old Rashid Khan has been grabbing all the headlines with his excellent performances, while the wily Bhuvneshwar Kumar has played his part despite flying under the radar. Ben Cutting, though, hasn't been as effective with the ball and he's likely to be the one to make way for Mustafizur. That change, however, would result in a slightly shorter batting order, but Warner and the team management will count on the top-order batsmen to negate it.History: Sunrisers have lost both their matches they've played at Wankhede. The overall head-to-head record between the two teams is even-stevens at 4-4, with two of those wins for Sunrisers coming last year.When: Wednesday, April 12 at 8:00 PM ISTWhere: Wankhede Stadium, MumbaiWhat to expect: The pitch is expected to be a batting paradise, as has been the norm in T20 matches at the Wankhede. A high of 33 degree Celsius is anticipated. Dew could play a big factor and chasing is usually the preferred option at this venue.Team News:Mumbai Indians: The hosts may not look at making any change, although McClenaghan's form is a worry. Should they decide to leave him out, Mitchell Johnson is a readily available option, as his pace and accuracy while bowling in the nets would not have gone unnoticed.Sunrisers Hyderabad: The return of Mustafizur means that SRH will have a change to their eleven for the first time in this edition of the IPL. The Bangladesh left-arm seamer is likely to be slotted in place of Cutting.What they said:"The batsmen have got to hit him first, don't they? For the size of the ground to come into contention. He, like any spinner, is going to be challenged on smaller grounds. But traditionally the surface here offers something for spin bowling. So he'll relish the conditions out in the middle." - Tom Moody feels Rashid Khan will be up for the challenge despite the short boundaries at Wankhede."It's just the start of the season. He hasn't played so much of cricket but I think he's bowling well in the nets. There's no concern (with his form). At the end of the day it's (only) the result that will matter" - Parthiv Patel isn't concerned about McClenaghan's two expensive outings.Did you know:- Sunrisers have lost both their matches at the Wankhede. The chasing sides have won all the five matches at the Wankh since IPL 2016.- Kieron Pollard needs 33 runs more to become the fifth batsman to score 7000 runs in T20s.- Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has taken 11 wickets against Mumbai in 10 matches at an economy rate of 5.48.- Rohit Sharma has scored only 98 runs in eight innings against Sunrisers. His scores against them read 22, 20*, 1, 14*, 24, 7*, 5 and 5.
