IPL 2023: MI vs SRH – Mayank Agarwal and Vivrant Sharma put on a strong opening partnership of 140 runs as Sunrisers Hyderabad looked to finish strong against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede on Sunday. However, Akash Madhwal got rid of Vivrant for 69(47) and Mayank scored 83(46) before getting out to Madhwal. Mumbai Indians made a few changes in their XIs as Kumar Kartikeya replaced Hrithik Shokeen, and Tilak Varma was named in the MI substitutes. SRH fielded Umran Malik in the XI, while Kartik Tyagi found his name in the subs. Mumbai will look for a win to strengthen their chance in the three-way play-off battle for the fourth and final spot. Hyderabad, on the other hand, will look to end things with a bang, which if they manage will keep Rajasthan alive in the competition.
SRH’s Heinrich Klaasen and MI’s Rohit Sharma to hold the key
Heinrich Klaasen will hold the key for SRH, having scored a superb century in the previous encounter. Klassen is SRH’s leading run-scorer and has amassed 430 runs from 10 innings. He averages 53.45 and has a strike-rate of 179.16. Rohit Sharma started the season on a slow note and was dismissed for five single-digit scores including two ducks. However, he has showed signs of bouncing back to form, having scored 18-ball 29 and a 25-ball 37 in his last two outings. With MI finding themselves in a tough spot, the team will hope that their captain fires big.
MI’s biggest concern has been their bowling at their home ground
MI’s biggest concern has been their bowling at their home ground. The team has conceded four 200-plus scores on the trot, while RCB piled 199/6 in 20 overs. Mumbai Indians have enjoyed a good record at home and have secured four wins, while enduring two defeats. Mumbai Indians will hope for another positive outcome at the home venue and will also look to improve their Net Run Rate (NRR). If both Mumbai and Bangalore lose then it remains a three-way race and the final play-off contender will be decided as per the NRR. Rajasthan, too, have a superior NRR than Mumbai but not as good as Bangalore.
In conclusion, the match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad was a crucial one for both teams. While Mumbai Indians were looking to strengthen their chances in the three-way play-off battle for the fourth and final spot, Sunrisers Hyderabad were looking to end things with a bang, which if they managed would keep Rajasthan alive in the competition. The opening partnership of Mayank Agarwal and Vivrant Sharma put on a strong show for SRH, but Akash Madhwal got rid of Vivrant for 69(47) and Mayank scored 83(46) before getting out to Madhwal.
