Written by Abhishek Lohia

Hyderabad Sunrisers will face Mumbai Indians after losing their previous two matches in IPL. Obviously, Hyderabad will not want to put a hat-trick of defeat in any condition. Although the condition of defending champions Mumbai Indians is also not doing well in this season. The beginning of Mumbai has been started with the defeat. He got defeat in three previous consecutive matches. There are nine matches left before the playoff round. If Mumbai wants to strengthen their chances, then they need to win at least seven out of them. On Tuesday against Sunrise Hyderabad, a victory for them has become more imperative. On the other hand, Sunrisers has slipped to the bottom in the first place after reaching the top. After three wins, he has been getting consistently defeated. Hyderabad is also desperate to return to victory.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai’s batting is dependent on Suryakumar Yadav, who are consistently doing well on the opening and so far he has been just 4 runs away from 200. Skipping the innings of 94 runs against RCB, Captain Rohit Sharma has not been able to contribute much. Kieron Pollard has also managed to score only 54 runs in five games While Ewin Lewis has not been also able to do much better and Pandya brothers have not been able to shine with the bat.

Fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah showed against Rajasthan that he is close to doing his best. Mustafizur is doing good. McClenaghan has taken wickets but he has also spent the runs. The Pandya brothers have been successful in satisfying the ball. Mayank Markande is the only spinner who praised everyone till yet.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Captain Kane Williamson is in excellent form. He has scored 230 runs in five matches so far, but he is not getting any support from his fellow batsmen from the other end. Especially, Wriddhimaan Saha has been disappointed and has made 62 runs so far. Against Rajasthan, Yusuf Pathan has scored 45 runs in 27 balls but has not been as successful as expected.

Apart from this, we can’t forget Shakib Al Hasan. He is not only a great bowler but if he goes out in the batting, then Williamson will be very useful. The bowling of this team is fantastic. Only Punjab, and especially Gayle, could dominate him. Bhuwaneswar Kumar and Rashid Khan are in excellent form. Apart from this, Siddharth Kaul and Mohammed Nabi are also would be proved great for Hyderabad. Kaul performed the best spell against Mumbai in the previous game.

Mumbai Indians Probable XI: Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Probable XI Alex Hales, Shreevats Goswami, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Wriddhiman Saha, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul, Billy Stanlake, Sandeep Sharma.
