Series: Indian Premier League 2023

Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, 69th Match 21st May 3.30 PM IST

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Mumbai Indians must win this game to stay alive in the race to playoffs. A win here would not guarantee a place in the top 4 since RCB also have the same points with one match to go.
Along with a win, MI also need a boost to their NRR to overtake RCB and strengthen their chances. The recent games have seen MI bowlers deliver early breakthroughs in the powerplay.
And this is a great sign going into this match. The opposition has some brilliant in-form batters such as Rossouw, Harry Brook, and Glenn Phillips. All of these are known for their destructive power.
SRH failed to finish on a high in their last match against RCB. But here, on a good batting surface against MI, they will back themselves to put on a great show at the death.
MI have great depth in their batting and will be opting to bowl first if they win the toss. They can capitalize on Hyderabad’s bowling struggles especially after their recent loss against RCB.

Mumbai Indians Preview
MI need to bounce back from their recent loss where they failed to get 11 off the final over with Cameron Green and Tim David on the crease. The two managed to score just 5 runs in that over from Mohsin Khan,
a 24-year old uncapped bowler with just 12 IPL games.
The key middle-order batters Suryakumar Yadav and Nehal Wadhera failed to get going and it hampered MI’s run-chase. While Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma’s form at the top is good news, MI need their finishers to deliver.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview
Sunrisers Hyderabad were pretty much on top of the game against RCB at home in their last match. Klaasen’s hundred helped them post 186-run total batting first but it was nowhere near enough when Kohli and
Faf got going in the second half of the match.
It was a good batting pitch in Hyderabad and it will be even better when they come to the Wankhede in Mumbai. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan need to be on their best day if SRH are to stand any chance
of gaining the upper hand against MI.

Pitch Report
Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host MI’s last home game of the season. It is a day game and the weather forecast is cloudy, so no dew is expected. There can be some movement for the new-ball bowlers early on.
Teams can have a better chance of defending a total in the day game at this venue than the night ones. A 190+ score would be a competitive total for team batting first.

key players MI : Ishan Kishan , Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Jason BehrendorfF

key players SRH : Aiden Markram , Heinrich Klaasen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Abdul Samad
