Defending Indian Premier League champions Sunrisers Hyderabad must win on Monday to stay in the playoff hunt when they face table-topping Mumbai Indians in a match that will live stream from Hyderabad as the world’s leading T20 franchise cricket competition moves into the home stretch of the 2017 group stage.
Without a victory, Sunrisers, captained by Australia star batsman David Warner, will need to win both of their final two games to ensure that fifth-place Kings XI Punjab cannot overtake them in the standings. Currently sitting on 10, King XI could finish with a maximum of 16, putting them past Hyderabad if Sunrisers suffer even one loss in their last two — unless they can defeat Mumbai at home on Monday.
