New Delhi: Welcome to our LIVE score updates of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017, Match 48 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. (LIVE Scorecard | Full Coverage)
David Warner will be banking on his home form while going head-to-head against Rohit Sharma’s table toppers, having won five out of the six matches they have played so far at home.
A victory against Mumbai also becomes crucial for Hyderabad considering they have won only once in away matches so far and hence, before traveling to Kanpur to face Gujarat Lions, they will like to add 2 more points to their total.
Today’s hosts have 13 points from 12 matches and are fourth in the points table. One more win will likely take them through to the play-offs and they surely wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity, considering 5th placed Kings XI Punjab are already knocking the playoffs door.
Mumbai, who already have registered their place in the play offs, once again showed their mettle by securing a huge 146-run triumph over Delhi Daredevils. The Rohit Sharma-led squad will look to be ruthless again in their push for the top two spots at the end of the league phase and the cushion that they offer.
