If any of the two teams are closest to qualify for the playoffs in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), then they are the Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Both the teams will lock horns at the Wankhede stadium on Thursday and the visitors will be keen to pull one back on Mumbai. MI had comfortably defended 136 against SRH in Hyderabad. A victory for the hosts will ensure their playoffs qualification.
The Orange Army will definitely miss their most consistent player David Warner who has left the team midway to join the national training camp ahead of the World Cup. Martin Guptill is the perfect replacement for him and he will open their charge with Wriddhiman Saha. For Mumbai, they might offer another chance to Evin Lewis and Barinder Sran before bringing pondering over including an extra overseas bowling option in Mitchell McClenaghan.
The 51st game of the IPL between MI and SRH will be hosted by the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
The match starts at 08:00 PM local time (14:30 GMT).
The game will be live on Star Sports in India. (Live streaming on Hotstar).
There is no rain in the forecast. But humidity will be at its peak during the match hours in Mumbai. Dew, as usual, will also play its role during the game and it will be tough for the bowlers to grip the ball especially in the second innings.

The pitch is expected to be flat at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. Though it tends to turn a bit, excessive dew might just negate that threat. The team winning the toss will definitely opt to field first.
