Hyderabad have tails up against Mumbai

Hyderabad, April 11: Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to bank on their good-looking bowling attack to unsettle Mumbai Indians when the two teams meet in an Indian Premier League (IPL) game here on Thursday.
Hyderabad, led by Kane Williamson in the absence of David Warner who is serving a one-year ban due to a ball tampering incident, hardly broke sweat during their emphatic nine-wicket victory over Rajasthan Royals in their opening match.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, lost a closely fought match against Cheni Super Kings in the tourment opener.
Hyderabad showed in their first game that they have the most diverse bowling attack in the competition. India’s celebrated pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the line with his swing bowling while Billy Stanlake has raw pace and Siddarth Kaul can hit the deck. 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.
Shikhar Dhawan’s form is a boon on the batting front for SRH though their batting depth was not tested during the first match.
Coming to the visitors, Mumbai Indians has a star-studded team with skipper Rohit Sharma leading the list.
Mumbai could see all-rounder Hardik Pandya not play due to an ankle injury he picked up in the last game. (IANS)
