The biggest news today is that the leading run-scorer of the tournament, David Warner will not open the batting for Hyderabad. He has bid adieu to the IPL to join the national camp for World Cup preparations. The void will be hard to fill, however, the team has the services of Martin Guptill who is a like-for-like replacement. However, they will be tempted to field Billy Stanlake looking at the Mumbai pitch and his sheer pace.
Evin Lewis is an impact player and he will be a good choice tonight for Mumbai as he can strike the ball big and change the momentum of the game single-handedly. It remains to be seen whether Malinga keeps his place or gets replaced by either Jason Behrendorff or Mitchell McClenaghan.
