Sunrisers Hyderabad is facing a setback as legspinner Wanindu Hasaranga remains absent from the squad due to ongoing consultations with doctors regarding chronic pain in his left heel. This absence is expected to extend for at least another week, raising questions about the team’s overseas bowling options, particularly regarding Marco Jansen’s performance against KKR.

In terms of strategic adjustments, Sunrisers Hyderabad replaced fast bowler T Natarajan with opener Abhishek Sharma after their match at Eden Gardens.

The probable XII for Sunrisers Hyderabad includes Mayank Agarwal, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, and a choice between Marco Jansen or Fazalhaq Farooqi, along with Pat Cummins, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, and T Natarajan.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians are still without Suryakumar Yadav, who is recovering from ankle surgery at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. His absence is expected to continue, making him unlikely to feature in Mumbai’s first home game on April 1.

Mumbai Indians made adjustments to their overseas player lineup, fielding only three overseas players in their XI against Titans. They brought in middle-order batter Dewald Brevis, replacing fast bowler Luke Wood for the chase.

The probable XII for Mumbai Indians comprises Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Naman Dhir, Dewald Brevis, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya, Tim David, Shams Mulani, Gerald Coetzee, Piyush Chala, Jasprit Bumrah, and Luke Wood.
