Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be aiming for two crucial points and boost their chances of making it to the playoffs when they take on Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium today.

MI vs SRH: SRH aim to move up in points table against MI

As of now, Sunrisers are placed at the fourth spot with 12 points, just below Mumbai who have 14 points from 12 games. In their last match against Kings XI Punjab, SRH had secured a comfortable 45-run win at home riding on the heroics of David Warner.

However, with Warner gone, the Kane Williamson-led side will have to reassess their strategy, especially in the batting department. Martin Guptill, in all likelihood, will come into the playing XI and Williamson will be hoping that he scores big just like Warner and gives them a solid start.

On the other hand, Mumbai lost their last encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders by 34 runs, and thus would be desperate for a win to confirm their berth in the playoffs. With their bowlers going for plenty against KKR, skipper Rohit Sharma will be hoping for a better performance from his bowling unit which comprises of Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga.

The pitch at the Wankhede, like always, has been batting friendly and betters will again have a good time in the middle.

MI vs SRH: Dream 11 Top 6 Picks

The Mumbai team has some well performing players in their squad. For the match, Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock and Hardik Pandya are must picks. De Kock has dazzled us with his skill and is due for a big game. Since he plays well against fast bowlers, he could be used as a wild card which, if successful will give you unique points in the league. Apart from that, Pandya is in supreme touch and picking an all rounder would be best on a pitch like Mumbai’s. The skipper, Rohit Sharma is perhaps one of the most underwhelming players this season, but today, he could shine and show his true potential.

From the Hyderabadi team, picking Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey would be a wise decision. Guptill would be looking to put his best foot forward as he will have to fill the big boots of David Warner. Manish Pandey on the other hand has struck a purple patch and has become a very vital part of the team. One can not afford to not pick him. Apart from them, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a consistent fast bowler you've got to pick because of the pitch at Wankhede.
