After 12 games, Mumbai Indians sit on third spot in the table with seven victories - one more than fourth-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH scored 212 for 6 as they defeated Kings XI Punjab by 45 runs in the last game, but they will be without this season's leading run-scorer David Warner, who has left the league to join the Australian camp ahead of the World Cup.
MI on the other hand faced a huge loss to KKR in their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders, who scored 232 runs in their 20 overs. This game is of immense importance in the points table as well. If MI win, they will seal their play-offs berth, while SRH will go to 14 points and will need to win their last match to enter the top-four.
Pitch Conditions: The pitch here at Wankhede will be a run-feast, which should mean a paradise for the batters. However, SRH are sans David Warner and with Bairstow already gone, the loss of the two is sure to hit them. SRH have struggled in the batting department with players like Williamson and Shankar yet to come to the party. MI are more balanced with a lot more experience, and they walk into this match as favourites.
Wicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock (9.5 credits)
De Kock came into the IPL with form behind him, and he has carried that forward into the edition as well. He is MI's highest run-scorer with 393 runs in
