The Rohit Sharma-led side needs a solitary win to book their place in the next round.
Meanwhile, SRH are also in a must-win scenario.
Here is the detailed match preview.
These two teams have faced each other 13 times in the past. SRH have won seven games, while MI pocketed a total of six wins. Earlier this season, MI won the encounter by 40 runs.
Mumbai will look up to the services of Hardik Pandya, who has enjoyed a brilliant campaign with the bat.
The all-rounder has been lethal with his shot-making to help MI score those extra runs at the death.
The top order will be challenged and one would want to see the likes of Rohit Sharma & Co. come hard at SRH.
MI will hope to ring in some changes in the bowling. Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga are expected to lead the line. Rahul Chahar has been terrific as well for MI. There is depth and quality in the ranks and the conditions will suit them.
David Warner batted like a champion this season and amassed a commendable 692 runs.
Unfortunately, he won't feature anymore in the IPL after having to report for international duty.
That will see martin Guptill make his debut for SRH.
He has been patiently waiting for his chance.
Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey need to contribute for a side, whose middle order has looked flat.
SRH will be looking to have a say with their bowling and the likes of Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar need to keep up with the consistency level. Having said that, SRH's bowling looks strong and balanced. It promises to be a good contest.
The pitch at the Wankhede will support batting.
Anything in excess of 180 will be a decent total.
The bowlers will need to stick to their plans and try to extract the maximum.
The match is scheduled for 8:00 PM start IST.
One can watch the match live on the Star Sports Network and can stream the same on Hotstar app.
