IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad predicted playing XI to take on Mumbai Indians

Earlier, the Sunrisers bowlers bowled with discipline to limit the Royals total to 125 for nine.

Kane Willliamson: We will have a bowl.

The seventh encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 is between the defending champions Mumbai Indians and the 2016 champions Sunrisers Hyderabad. Yusuf Pathan and Hales spent a lot of time in the nets, so their chances of being in the playing XI are very high.

Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma has expressed confidence on Jasprit Bumrah's strong comeback after a disappointing first game, but all eyes will be on the young Mayank Markande who wrecked CSK's batting line-up last Saturday with his stunning three-wicket spell. The battle of the Australian vice-captain and captain but instead this will now be the battle of the two stylish and orthodox batsman who have made a career of breaking stereotypes.

He is the flawless fit for your fantasy team! It is going to be a long season but it is going to be an exciting one. You can create your StarPick teamhere. On Monday, Wriddhiman Saha was sent up to open, but fell in an attempt to loft over the infield. It is also the 50th IPL game at this venue.

Kane Williamson was lauded for his captaincy tactics in the first match and people feel that he is the flawless replacement for David Warner. To me Rajasthan look better suited to chasing because of the power-hitters in their middle order but I'm still happy to take the pre-toss price of 2.02 about the Royals.

Batting was not to perfection.

Million-dollar paceman Pat Cummins, coming off the four-Test series in South Africa, and Brisbane Heat star Ben Cutting were absent for the Indians. It won't be in the death either, as they have two late-overs specialists in Jaydev Unadkat and Jofra Archer. The spinning department, led by Afghanistan's highly-rated leg-spinner Rashid Khan, also has the likes of Shakib Al Hasan with his orthodox left-arm spin. He will play a key role for his side this year and will look to contribute equally with the bat and the ball. The innings ended in as familiar way though; he was run out for the umpteenth time in his IPL career. He is one of the contenders for the Purple Cap this year. Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the line with his swing bowling while Billy Stanlake has raw pace and Siddarth Kaul can hit the deck hard. He conceded 30 runs in the first match and will hope to improve on this aspect in the next game. Given his excellent show in the first game against RR, Australia quick Billy Stanlake too will not be dropped.

Experienced all-rounder Christian claimed 1-12 in the Delhi Daredevils' loss to Kings XI Punjab, for whom paceman Tye returned figures of 0-38 off his four overs.
