Sunrisers Hyderabad who is riding on the shoulders of Warner and Bairstow will collide with the Mumbai Indians who are coming from a great win against Chennai Super Kings. Both the teams will be confident as they lock horns this Saturday night.
As Mumbai Indians will miss the services of Malinga who has gone to play domestic cricket, Ben Cutting might finally get an opportunity here and probably, Yuvraj Singh who failed to contribute in the last two matches will be under the scanner as well.
The team will majorly rely on the opening partnership and will hope that the captain Rohit Sharma comes good today. With Hardik Pandya at the end, Mumbai Indians will be confident of a good performance.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is too good that they couldn’t find a place for their captain Williamson. With both the openers doing well and the middle order somehow clicking, Sunrisers is in a happy place. Yes, there are some troubles when it comes to their bowling and hopefully, that will settle soon.
For Mumbai Indians, a lot depends on Behrendorff and Bumrah. If selected, Ben Cutting will be darkhorse for the team. Also, it will be interesting to see if Pollard can clear the boundaries like he did the other night. Mumbai for sure will look to change their losing jinx to Hyderabad.
