Sunrisers Hyderabad will travel to defending champions Mumbai Indians’ den for the 23rd match of the season.
The Orange Army had lost their last match against CSK and thus would like to make a comeback in this game.
Kane Williamson-led team will be without the services of their talismanic bowler, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The fast bowler hasn’t traveled with the team due to an injury.
However, the 2016 edition champions are hopeful to get back the duties of their opener Shikhar Dhawan. The southpaw had missed their last match due to a forearm injury.
Hyderabad franchise has won three matches while they have lost two. They are currently sitting in the middle of the points table.
Here is a look at the Predicted Playing XI of the Sunrisers Hyderabad
Shikhar Dhawan had missed the last match of the franchise against CSK. The southpaw is expected to return to the final XI. Thus, it is going to be a big boost for the team.
Wriddhiman Saha was pushed down the order in the previous game. The wicket-keeper batsman is expected to return to his opening position. Saha would like to capitalize on his starts.
Kane Williamson played a majestic knock of 84 off just 51 balls in the last match. Unfortunately, Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper wasn’t able to take his team over the line.
It has been a disappointing season for Manish Pandey with the bat. The right-hander has been superb in the field but has let the team down with his batting.
Deepak Hooda has had a see-saw season so far. The right-hander had played a match-defining knock against Mumbai Indians in their previous encounter.
Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib Al Hasan has had a good couple of starts but the all-rounder has failed to provide the finishing touches. Thus, the think tank will hope for a better performance from Bangladesh’s all-rounder.
Yusuf Pathan played a good knock of 45 off just 27 balls in the last match. However, he was not able to take the match deep. Pathan will aim to give a better performance to his team.
Surprisingly, Rashid Khan has been on the expensive side in the last two matches. The Afghanistan player was able to give a ray of hope to SRH when he struck a quickfire 17 off just four balls against CSK.
Sandeep Sharma is expected to fill in the big shoes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Sharma has played one match thus far in the season and had an impressive game.
The lanky fast bowler from Australia, Billy Stanlake has continued to impress with his brisk pace. However, he was on the expensive side in the last match.
Siddarth Kaul has a good run-up. Thus, he is able to generate good pace and bounce from the pitch. The right-hander has impressed with his variations.
