To add to SRH's worry, doubts remain over lead seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar's participation in the match. He picked up an injury on Friday night and was unable to complete his final over in the game against Chennai Super Kings.
Mumbai Indians are unlikely to make any changes to the winning combination as skipper Rohit Sharma
is back in business and now the middle order -- Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard is firing too.
SRH will also take a lot of confidence from their seven-run win over CSK, where all their youngsters delivered after the big guns failed to fire.
SRH Would expect skipper David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey to deliver at Sharjah where defending a decent total, which SRH specialises in, may not be an option as the ground has only seen big scoring matches so far.
IPL 2020, Match 17: MI vs SRH Pitch report
Sharjah has small boundaries so we may expect a high-scoring match between MI and SRH. The flat wicket would favour batsmen and doesn't have much to offers to bowlers. The top order of both Mumbai Indians and SunRisers Hyderabad
would look to make the most of powerplay restrictions.
