The 23rd game of IPL 2018 is set to witness a crucial encounter for both the teams who are desperate for a win for their own reasons. The unlucky Mumbai Indians side badly need some luck in their favor following four last-over losses while Sunrisers Hyderabad need to quickly return to winning ways after facing two consecutive defeats, having made a bright start to the tournament.
Three matches have been played at Wankhede this season with the average first innings score, being 191.
Krunal Pandya has picked up 5 wickets in 7 overs so far at Wankhede in this edition.
Three of the top-six highest individual scores in this season have come up at this venue.
Rohit Sharma(Worthy risk)
Rohit Sharma’s scores in this season- 15,11,18,94,0 show his inconsistency and his practice of scoring one big innings in a span of games. However, this may be Rohit’s day with the bat as he could capitalize on Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s absence and confidence-hit Rashid Khan who has been thrashed for two consecutive games.
