The match 51 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 will be going to take place between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Thursday, May 2.
Sunrisers are placed at the fourth spot with 12 points, just below Mumbai who have 14 points from 12 games.
However, with Warner gone, the Kane Williamson-led side will have to reassess their strategy, especially in the batting department. Martin Guptil, in all likelihood, will come into the playing XI and Williamson will be hoping that he scores big just like Warner and gives them a solid start.
On the other hand, Mumbai lost their last encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders by 34 runs, and thus would be desperate for a win to confirm their berth in the playoffs.
