Sunrisers Hyderabad almost face do or die situation for securing playoff berth in the ongoing VIVO10 IPL. And in the all important match they take on the tournament toppers Mumbai Indians at Rajiv Gndhi International stadium tonight.
With couple of straight defeats they suddenly came under pressure and now need to win the two matches left out for them. It is certainly not going to be easy to defeat Mumbai as they have shown wonderful consistency after losing the opener at Pune. The West Indians Keiron Pollard and Simmons who got a chance to play in the last encounter are in terrific form, while all-rounder Hardik Pandya who got selected for the Champions trophy is also really in superb form.
Today Warner should be at his best and if he makes a big score that has huge difference. Shikar is giving good starts but a big score from his bat is still due. Apart from these two Youvaj should make the most of it today. Strangely the Uppal wicket has played slowly in the last two matches and hope it will be a big scoring track today.
In yesterday’s matches Gujarat Lion’s beating Kings XI Punjab has given a bit of relief to SRH. But Punjab are still in the race with three matches to go. In the other match Kolkotta Knight Riders crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore to move to the second spot in the points table.
