Mumbai vs Hyderabad, 17th Match – Live Cricket Score
James Pattinson has seamlessly replaced the injured Nathan Coulter-Nile, who would’ve been the first-choice pacer if not for his niggle. Mumbai Indians are unlikely to make any change to their line-up.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
Concerns remain over the availability of the injured duo – Vijay Shankar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. SRH can dig into their Indian fast bowling reserves and pick one of Sandeep Sharma or Siddarth Kaul to replace Bhuvneshwar but the bigger dilemma is to whether stick to the winning combination or make a bigger tweak to accomodate a fifth bowling option – which could be handy in smaller boundaries in Sharjah.
Probable XI: David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson/Jason Holder, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Sandeep Sharma/Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan

What they said:
“They [Sunrisers Hyderabad] have got a few good bowlers. I know it’s a small stadium, but at the same time, if we don’t get loose balls, we have to respect those balls. And if the tempo is on our side, we just have to keep going. It is just about selecting the balls that you can hit.” – MI batsman Ishan Kishan is wary of taking the bang-bang approach in Sharjah.
