Designed by Srushti Takale

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 56th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Sunday. It’s like a knock-out contest with both teams needing a win to make it to the play-offs

Skipper David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have done a great job at the top of the order. Moises Henriques’s inclusion has changed the team’s fortunes and he continues to impress. Eoin Morgan, KL Rahul have made decent contributions to the team and will look in continuing that. The middle-order looked wobbly in the start of the tournament but it has changed now.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar continues to spearhead the bowling attack but couldn’t pull it off in the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Dale Steyn and Trent Boult have been in and out of the side and their performances in these crucial games matter a lot. Karn Sharma has done a fine job whereas Henriques comes as a handy all-rounder.

MI are coming in this game with a lot of confidence. They overpowered the defending champions and have clicked as a unit in the latter stages of the tournament. Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel have stabilised the innings at the top of the order. They have a strong middle-order with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Ambati Rayudu and new sensation Hardik Pandya.

Despite of losing his lethal sting, Lasith Malinga has continued to perform for MI when it matters. Harbhajan Singh and Jagdeesha Suchith are reliable spinners in this team. Pollard is known for his variations and can shoulder the responsibility of death bowling.

It is tough to predict the winner as both the teams are evenly matched. It is high time for both the teams to pull up their socks and go for the kill from the very first ball.
