Key Player

Hardik Pandya (MI)

Pandya has been the most in-form player for Mumbai Indians this season. His brilliant form with the bat has also started to rub on his bowling. He played a great knock against Kolkata but wasn’t able to get his team to the target score.

Martin Guptill (SRH)

In Warner’s absence, Guptill is likely to get his first game of this season. Guptill is not as destructive as Warner but he makes full use of the powerplay. The Kiwi also has a good record at Wankhede. His innings will be key for Sunrisers.
