SRH vs MI IPL: Even after taking the hardest decision of the season on dropping a senior player like David Warner from the captaincy role and playing XI, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) suffered a poor 55-run defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals in their last match. The Sunrisers Hyderabad have now lost six out of their seven matches so far in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Sunrisers Hyderabad will be desperately eyeing some sort of revival as they take on the Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on May 4.
After dropping David Warner from the playing XI, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team management took a pretty strange decision of including all-rounder Mohammad Nabi in the side. Nabi bowled just a single over conceding 21 runs and scored 17 runs off 5 balls. SRH are very much likely to retain the same playing XI for this important game against MI. However, with Manish Pandey not a regular opener, Jason Roy might come in place of Nabi.
