Welcome Back Folks , We have a cracker of a match following today Where Mumbai Indians will take on Sunrisers Hyerabad at Sharjah cricket Ground . After getting off to a sorry start, Mumbai Indians got back to what they do the best - winning games. With two wins in four matches, they are currently sitting at the top of the table and will be looking to find some momentum and consistency as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad. Rohit Sharma was in form the other day and he will like to continue his form. They have an attacking and dangerous lower middle order with the likes of Keiron Pollard and Hardik Pandya .If Mumbai Indians do not look intimidating with the bat, their bowling will certainly make them look so. With Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, they have two of the world's best bowlers available to pick wickets, be it at the beginning or at the death. James Pattinson is another speedster who has been brilliant in the tournament so far.
Hyderabad has found the lost rhythm in the last two matches . Addition of Kane Williamson in the team has certainly helped the team binding the middle order together . Young Priyam Grag and Abhishek Shrma were impressive . they will certainly going to miss services of bhuvi as he will not be playing today . Unlike what was expected of Sunrisers Hyderabad, their win was built purely on the efforts of the youngsters. After David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, and Kane Williamson all perished with not many runs on the board, the pair of Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg brought them back into the match.
This is the first time the two teams will get a taste of Sharjah's surface and the batsmen are certainly going to relish it. This match is expected to be played on a fresh surface, but we don't think it is going to make any different. With short boundaries all across the ground, the six fest is once again on the cards. This is a day game and as seen in the RR - RCB match, the fitness levels will be tested, be it while batting or while bowling.
Toss hasn't played played a crucial factor in the tournament so far. If anything, more often than not, the team that has lost has ended up winning the match. This is a high scoring venue and runs on the defending team could put pressure on the chasing team provided there are enough runs to defend. With no dew to assist, the surface could get a tad slow towards the end, making hitting through the line difficult. Considering those factors, we expect the team winning the toss to bat first.
