Bolstered by the thrilling last over win over the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Mumbai Indians will aim to deny a hattrick of wins to defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), when the two sides clash in an Indian Premier League 2017 match at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.

It is still early days in the tournament, with Mumbai having lost one and winning one while the Hyderabad side seems to have carried on from where they left last season, winning both their matches handsomely.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad edged home favourites Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 runs in a thrilling final to be crowned the 2016 Indian Premier League Champions. In what was a terrific advertisement for the game, more than 400 runs were scored and 14 wickets fell as an entertaining contest went down to the final over with Bhuvneshwar Kumar holding his nerve, not for the first time this season, to defend the 18 runs his teammates had left him with to bowl his side to a deserving win.

Hyderabad won the toss and surprised everyone by opting to bat first. The visitors got off to a solid start with David Warner in excellent form, smashing 69 off 38 balls. The Sunrisers' skipper shared a 69 run stand for the opening wicket with Shikhar Dhawan, who chipped in with 28.

A fantastic all round display by the Sunrisers Hyderabad, playing as a unit, helped them beat the Kolkata Knight Riders by 22 runs in the Eliminator at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Wednesday night.

Having been put in to bat, the Sunrisers Hyderabad stuttered to 162-8 in their 20 overs with Yuvraj Singh top scoring with 44. Each of the Sunrisers' top 5 got into double figures, but no one went on to make a big score. David Warner made a run a ball 28, while his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan struck a couple of boundaries before Morne Morkel made a mess of his furniture.

The Kolkata Knight Riders have beaten the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 22 runs at the Eden Garderns in the 4pm start on Sunday to book their place in the play-offs for Season 9 of the IPL. The match itself was an entertaining affair with KKR making full use of a poor decision from the Sunrisers Hyderabad to send them in on a pitch that would offer grip and turn as the match wore on to post a winning total of 171-6 on the board. The Sunrisers in response could manage only 149-8 in their 20 overs with Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav taking 5 wickets to ensure victory for the home side.

Robin Uthappa once again gave the Knight Riders an electric start, gliding the ball through the offside with unerring precision to post 25 before he fell to Barinder Sran. Colin Munro, picked ahead of Eoin Morgan today, failed to make the most of the opportunity afforded to him as he contributed just 10 and KKR looked in a spot of bother at 57-3 when Gautam Gambhir fell too after getting off to a start for 16.

A fantastic innings of 96 from Man of the Match Hashim Amla went in vain as the Kings XI Punjab suffered another defeat, their 8th of the season, going down to the table topping Gujarat Lions by 7 wickets in a thrilling contest which went down to the final over and was settled by some late big hitting from veteran Indian left-hander Yuvraj Singh.

Yuvraj came out to bat with the Sunrisers Hyderabad at 97-2 in the 13th over after David Warner (52) had become the latest victim of the Sunrisers' hit-wicket curse, funnily enough falling in Yuvi's footsteps. He shared a handy 42 run partnership with young Deepak Hooda, who smashed 34 off 22 balls, before taking the Sunrisers home in the company of Ben Cutting, who also hit 2 sixes, chipping in with an unbeaten 18 off 11 balls.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have taken over the lead of the Indian Premier League standings on net run rate for a few hours at the very least, routing the Mumbai Indians by 85 runs at Visakhapatnam.

Having been put in to bat on losing the toss, the Sunrisers Hyderabad posted an impressive total of 177-3 in their 20 overs with Shikhar Dhawan once again batting through the innings, top scoring with an unbeaten 82 off 57 balls. The Indian opener struggled to get his timing going initially, but started to find the middle of the bat more often as his innings progressed, and ended up hitting 10 boundaries and a six.

The Mumbai Indians completed a fairytale turnaround to their season by booking their place in the play-off game against the Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday with a thumping 9 wicket win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who appeared to still be reeling from their devastating late loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore earlier this week.

The Sunrisers won the toss and elected to make first use of the pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. It proved to be a disastrous decision as they soon found themselves reeling at 7-2 with both openers Shikhar Dhawan (1) and David Warner (6) back in the pavilion. Dhawan was cleaned up by a quick yorker from Lasith Malinga while his Australian counterpart fell to a short delivery from Man of the Match Mitchell McClenaghan.
