Riding high on momentum, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be eyeing for their fifth straight playoffs, when they take on the might Mumbai Indians in the last match of the IPL league competitions on Tuesday. SRH only need a win to qualify, thanks to their healthy run-rate. However, it will not be an easy task given their opponent is MI.
The Mumbai-based franchise, despite not having their captain Rohit Sharma available, have continued their dominance under interim skipper Kieron Pollard.
SRH too seems to have solved their middle-order woes by the inclusion West Indies skipper Jason Holder and Wriddhiman Saha.

Saha has made an instant impact as David Warner’s opening partner and the inclusion of Holder has given them an all-round option.
Pacers Holder and Sandeep Sharma were extremely impressive, both upfront and at the death, in the last game Royal Challengers Bangalore. Add left-arm pacer T Natarajan and trump card Rashid Khan to their bowling attack, it makes up for a well-rounded attack.
Sunrisers are not just riding high on momentum, they are also a team, full of confidence, having outplayed Delhi Capitals and RCB in their previous two outings.
In their last encounter at Sharjah, MI won by 34 runs, courtesy of Trent Boult’s bowling display.
