MI vs SRH Match Preview, Predication XI. A clash of two batting heavy teams, Hyderabad and Mumbai will take place in the batting paradise, Sharjah.
MUMBAI – SPIN COMES INTO THE GAME
Mumbai looks a very settled unit with every aspect of the game being covered well. The spin department, which looked like the only diffused weapon in their armoury, fired in their last game. Both Krunal and Chahar took crucial wickets and bowled at an economy of under 7 RPO.
MASTERS AT WORK IN THE DEATH
With the bat, they have Pollard and Hardik to wreak havoc, irrespective of hoe the start has been. In their last 2 matches, MI has scored 89 runs twice in the last 5 overs. With the ball, they have Bumrah. Though he’s been on and off thus far in the tournament but he’s getting into the groove of things. Pattinson handled the other end well in the death in the last game. Nathan Coulter-Nile can get a game should he be declared fit.
HYDERABAD – BHUVI’S INJURY SCARE
Bhuvaneshwar didn’t bowl the last over in their last game just a night ago against CSK. With this game being less than 48 hours apart from the previous one, it looks unlikely that Bhuvi will play. It will be a big hole for SRH to fill. Sandeep Sharma or Siddarth Kaul looks the most likely replacement.
EXPERIENCE AT THE TOP AND YOUTH FOLLOWS
SRH has a good mix of experienced international players and young players. Priyam Garg scored a quick-fire 51 in the last game and Abhishek Sharma complimented him well. The short boundaries at Sharjah will make life easier for the young batsmen. One might argue that Mumbai has the more explosive batting but in Sharjah, you don’t need the muscle power, just the touch of timing is enough to take the ball for a maximum.
