Sunrisers Hyderabad’s IPL campaign has gained momentum with two back to back victories while Mumbai Indians after doubtful UAE leg found some form on home turf winning first two games before going down against Chennai Super Kings. Both teams will be aware of the fact that at this stage of tournament defeat will nearly knock them out. As SRH is all set to play first game in front of home crowd against MI we take a look at five players who with their performance can change the fortunes of their respective sides in match number 36.

1. Harbhajan Singh (Mumbai Indians)

Harbhajan Singh is a match winner any day and all his experience comes to play when he is bowling. He has a habit of picking wickets at the time most needed and keeps throwing surprises at batsmen. The off-spinner is making his way back in to the form and bowled in his rhythm in last match against Chennai Super Kings. With wicket expected to be spin friendly Harbhajan will surely be a threat for home team.

2. Corey Anderson (Mumbai Indians)

Few months back Corey Anderson was hot property in world cricket and Mumbai Indians going by that reputation signed him. As IPL is halfway through Anderson has not done any wonders so far. An opportunity for him to prove his mettle before it gets too late. He has floated across batting order and seems he fits in at number six with sole purpose of acquiring quick runs for his team.

3. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

We already know how talented Bhuvneshwar Kumar is and in IPL he has gone an extra-mile to show us his class. He is swinging it both ways and best thing is he is getting wickets. 15 wickets at an economy of 5.49 tart up his stats. The purple cap holder is certainly in purple patch.

4. Aaron Finch (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

There is no doubt regarding how destructive opener Aaron Finch is, but he too just like his Captain Shikhar Dhawan has spilled quite a chances to make it big. Known for his aggressive intent at the top order he has managed just one half-century so far. Finch is one of the lifeblood of SRH batting and lot depends on him and the kind of start he provides to his team. It is time for him to stand and deliver, maybe he will tonight.

5. Dark Horse: Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians)

Consistency is one area where Rohit Sharma has been poor. Only Rohit knows it how not to make most out of his talent. Now with Mumbai Indians at a do or die situation Captain has to come up with match winning performances regularly. He has in eight innings scored 201 runs with two half-centuries, time to better his numbers.
