Electing to bowl, Mumbai Indians restricted Sunrisers Hyderabad to 158 for eight in an Indian Premier League match, here today. The chasing team has won each of the last five IPL games at the venue.
Sharma's form at the top of the order is very crucial for the entire team's batting performance, especially during when the openers fail to fire.
Whatever be the combination, it will have to confront a superb striker like Yuvraj Singh.
The SunRisers Hyderabad posted a video on Twitter of the two duelling in out in darts during a rained out training session.
With Sunrisers Hyderabad boasting of Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mumbai Indians having Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah, it was a contest between the two best death bowling attacks.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, made a decision to go with an unchanged side after Sunday's thrilling win against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Mumbai Playing 11 vs SRH: JC Buttler, PA Patel†, RG Sharma*, N Rana, KH Pandya, KA Pollard, HH Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, MJ McClenaghan, SL Malinga, JJ Bumrah.

5 Out of Rashid Khan's six wickets in IPL2017 have been either bowled or lbw.
Mustafizur played 16 games in Sunrisers' title-winning campaign of 2016, but broke down soon after with a shoulder injury while representing Sussex in the English County Championship, forcing him to undergo surgery in August.
Sources close to the development confirmed that both Shakib and Mustafizur would, in all likelihood, skip the national team's 10-day training camp in Sussex, which is slated to begin in the last week of April. We know how Warner plays upfront as well as Shikhar.
MI banked on a partisan support and some late batting heroics to see them to their first win of the new Indian Premier League season, and that home support and the-away-side-shall-not-win-at-this-ground feeling will be needed when they host SRH. They will be happy to keep rolling on their good performances.
The early momentum paved way for a smooth chase for the Mumbai Indians.
