Mumbai: A confident Mumbai Indians will lock horns with defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League encounter at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday. It will be a battle of youngsters with the likes of Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya on one side and Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan with his variations on the other.
Known for their sluggish starts in previous editions, Mumbai Indians have logged home full points in their very second match thanks to Rana's half-century and brilliant cameo from Hardik. This was after Hardik's elder brother Krunal put up an impressive performance with the ball grabbing three wickets.
However, the third game of the tournament will be the toughest one for Mumbai as they face an in-form Sunrisers squaring off after a couple of comprehensive victories in their previous encounters.
What must have pleased the Mumbai team management is the fact that the win against KKR was achieved with contribution from team's younger lot.
The one change Mumbai could make is to bring in Tim Southee for his New Zealand compatriot Mitchell McClenaghan, who leaked plenty of runs against KKR.
