“We are ready for the exciting challenge in taking on Mumbai Indians, which is a great team having the won trophy quite a few times,” Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram said on the eve of the match here on Monday.
“They have a very good batting line-up and it will be a challenge for our bowling,” he said.
Markram said he was really pleased with the form of his batters, including himself, in the last game.
“It is always good for a team. [Harry] Brook played a great knock, it was fantastic to watch. Great timing for us,” he said. “A player will always be in a positive frame of mind after a good knock or a good haul of wickets,” the captain said.
“We are not worried about the indifferent form of Mayank Agarwal. He is such a good player and it is a question of only a few minutes when he goes out there and plays a big knock. We know how good a player he is,” Markram said.
“I am not sure which is a better option at this venue — chasing or setting a target. We will take a call after looking at the wicket,” he said.
“There is scope for improvement always, especially in fielding having dropped quite a few catches in the previous game,” Markram said.
“We have got great players who can make optimum use of PowerPlays. We have trust in them,” he said.
