Toss Mumbai Indians chose to bat v Sunrisers Hyderabad
Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma went against the trend and decided to bat against Sunrisers Hyderabad in a bid to seal a playoff berth. Rohit wanted to take a chance on a fresh Wankhede pitch, despite having the dew factor in mind. The hosts were unchanged compared to two made by Sunrisers.
The visitors picked Martin Guptill to replace David Warner while Basil Thampi came in for Sandeep Sharma. Mumbai need to win one of their remaining two games to make the playoffs whereas a win for Sunrisers on Thursday will pretty much seal their playoff berth because of their superior net run rate.
