Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad:
This is super Sunday and we have 2 matches for today but the first match and all important match will be played between the defending champions Mumbai Indians and the former champions Sunrisers Hyderabad. Mumbai is at no 5 in Points table whereas Sunrisers Hyderabad is at no 4 so the match will surely be a great one to watch. The match will be played at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. Match will be a day match and will be live at 3:30 PM Pakistan Standard time. Last time when these 2 sides played against each other it was Hyderabad who beat Mumbai quite convincingly.
Starting from the Mumbai side who is finally getting some momentum and the way they have won their previous 2 matches is surely admiring. One of the reason for their brilliant display of the game is their captain leading from the front. He has scored runs for the side consistently and led his side by example. Kieron Pollard also has done his job brilliantly and the way he has finished the matches for his side that was quite delightful to watch. Coming towards their other batsmen which are still not consistent but they have helped their captain a lot and that is what Rohit Sharma wants from his batsmen. Overall they have not much issues with their batting but the problem they are still facing is their bowling where they are playing with 5 genuine bowlers but they are conceding a lot of runs and that is creating problems for the Mumbai and Mumbai Indians surely have to look upon this and need to change their strategy a bit so that they make their combination much stronger for the upcoming matches. Their match is against Sunrisers Hyderabad who is in red hot form and they have already lost against them so they surely need to work on it and need this win to make their place much stronger in the race of Knockout stages.
Coming towards the Orange Army who has stunned everyone in this tournament with the way they have played their matches so far. Their captain David Warner has done an excellent job with the bat. The way he has led his side and also scored runs is just admirable. Coming toward the other opener Shikhar Dhawan who wasn’t in good form at the start but now he is in blistering form. The way he has taken the responsibility and played sensibly in all the matches is delightful. Coming towards the other openers who also have played decently and scored runs at important time. Coming towards their bowling which is probably the best in the tournament so far and the way their pacers have destroyed the deadly batting line ups of the opposition and was just awesome so far in the tournament. As a whole they are in blistering form at the moment and if they continue to play like that they have a fair chance of going through next round.
The pitch for the match has never used as this is the first match so batsmen might find difficulty in playing here. There is no rain forecast for the match.
