Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad in match no. 65 of IPL 2022 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday. Mumbai are coming on the back of a five-wicket win over while Hyderabad were outplayed by 54 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders in their last encounter of the IPL 2022.
Mumbai Indians will be up against Sunrisers Hyderabad and they have nothing to lose as a result of already being out of contention to qualify for the playoffs. Sunrisers Hyderabad on the other hand, are in a tricky position and will need a win at any cost to keep alive their chances of making it to the playoffs.
At the business end of the tournament, Mumbai Indians seem to have regained their old form and are playing better than earlier. Their batting can still be a problem but the bowling unit has been far better in the last couple of games. Daniel Sams has picked wickets in the last couple of games and is providing breakthroughs for the team. Batting is still an area of concern for MI.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are on 10 points from 12 games and will need a win to be in the race to playoffs. Kane Willamson’s form and his strike rate are the main concerns for the SRH batting unit. Williamson seems to be completely out of touch this season and even when he scores runs the strike rate is very low. This has resulted in other batters having the pressure of increasing the run-rate and getting out in the attempt.
An exciting contest is on the cards as one team will play freely without having the pressure of losing anything while one will look to play out of their skin to qualify for playoffs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have been in poor form recently as they lost all their last five matches. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians have won three matches out of their last four.
Head to Head
Both the teams have played each other in 21 matches. SRH have won 11 matches while DC have won 10 fixtures.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
Best Betting Tip
Rahul Tripathi has been a consistent run-scorer for SRH this season. He has plundered 317 runs from 12 matches at 35.22 including two half-centuries.
Sunrisers Hyderabad batting looks strong against Mumbai Indians bowling attack and so SRH are the favourites to win the contest.
