Hyderabad, May 7: Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad will be desperate to win their fil home match here on Monday against top-placed Mumbai Indians in order to seal their play-offs berth of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
Hyderabad have 13 points from 12 matches and are fourth in the points table. One more win will likely take them through to the play-offs and. due to their superb home record, they will be eager to bag two points at the Rajiv Gandhi Intertiol Stadium here.
Out of the six matches at home, the David Warner-led side has won five, while winning only once in away matches. Hence, before travelling to Kanpur to face Gujarat Lions, they will like to win at home. But Hyderabad, who are coming off with two consecutive losses against Delhi Daredevils and Rising Pune Supergiant, need to raise their game against two-time champions Mumbai, who have won nine of their 11 matches so far.
