Time is running out for SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), who have managed just one win in the first half of the Indian Premier League. They face Mumbai Indians (MI) here at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday.
After seven matches, they have two points and are placed at the bottom of the points table.
While nothing seems to be going right for the Hyderabad franchise, MI seem to have overcome inconsistency in the initial phase of the tournament they played in Chennai and taken to the Ferozeshah Kotla pitch as duck to water.
Their batsmen, especially power-hitters like Kieron Pollard, are back among big runs. Their openers Quinton de Kock and skipper Rohit Sharma too are looking fluent.
They start favourites against SRH who are facing problems on more than one front.
SRH witnessed a change in captaincy ahead of the sixth game on Sunday. More surprisingly their regular skipper and opener David Warner wasn't just stripped of the leadership role but also dropped from the playing eleven.
