MI vs SRH: Match Preview
Mumbai Indians will come on the field to save the prestige
Mumbai Indians have won the IPL title 5 times, but this season this team could not play according to its name. Explaining the reason for this, veteran players like Shane Watson says, at the time of the auction itself, the management made a mistake in selecting the players. After the start of the season, the continuous failure of MI’s opening pair weighed heavily on the team.
If Trent Boult had been with Bumrah in fast bowling, then the performance of the team could have been better. Considering Kieron Pollard’s poor form, MI is now trying new players. That trend may continue in this match as well.
Victory is essential for Sunrisers Hyderabad
Sunrisers Hyderabad stunned everyone with a strong comeback after winning five consecutive matches. Everyone thought that MI would easily reach the playoffs. After that, the team’s losing streak started, which is not taking its name to stop. While playing speed star-like Umran Malik with a straight bat, opposition batsmen are scoring runs on him.
Kane Williamson has been seen increasing the problems of the team by flopping in the batting. His captaincy is also under question. Putting a spinner in the last over in front of an aggressive batsman like Andre Russell was not the right decision in any respect. Due to the lapse of his captaincy, the team got to chase a big target against Kolkata, which SRH could not achieve.
MI Probable XI: Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma, Tilak Varma, Ramandeep Singh, Tristan Stubbs, Tim David, Hrithik Shokeen, Daniel Sams, Kumar Kartikeya, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith
SRH Probable XI: Kane Williamson, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
