Pat Cummins is already out due to a back injury. Rohit Sharma's team will still persist with their four pacers on a seam-friendly wicket in Hyderabad. Hardik Pandya is also suffering an ankle injury that he sustained in the last game against Chennai Super Kings. If he isn't fit to play, Saurabh Tiwary can replace him in MI probable 11 against SRH. Mumbai Indians are in need of quick turnaround. If they want to win the game, one of their openers Rohit Sharma or Evin Lewis will have to play true to their potential. Other than this, Kurnal Pandya and Ishan Kishan will need to give some solidity in the middle. Keiron Polard, the proven match winner, will be the man to watch out for in SRH vs MI today match, IPL 2018.
