Mumbai Indians have wasted no time in sending their title-winning intent to the rest of the pack, winning two of their first four games. SRH have also been in inspired form, winning two matches so far, to sit fifth on the standings.
Their shocking resurgence can be attributed to the brilliance of Kieran Pollard. Partnering with Ishan Kishan, Pollard pushed MI so close to a win, before being upstaged in the super-over against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
In his last two games, he helped his side with over 80 runs in the last five overs, as he proved to be the game-changer in both clashes. Last time out against KXIP, he combined really well with Hardik Pandya, smashing 30 off 11 deliveries.
Building their game around the team’s youngsters, the Orange Army have hit a purple patch. With the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey and David Warner faltering, the duo of Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg have been introduced to the frat to register more runs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are known for their magnificent bowling attack – one that has helped them to two wins on the bounce. With so much talent to choose from in this unit, David Warner has never looked perturbed rotating his squad. He has full trust in all his players, and quite rightly so.
Even though they will be full of confidence heading here, it will probably be too much of an ask to upset Mumbai here. Expect them to give MI a hard-time, while still losing out narrowly.
