Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will play against Mumbai Indians in the 31st match of IPL 2021 on Tuesday. Both teams have had a poor start in the tournament. SRH haven’t yet recovered and are languishing at the bottom of the table.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have managed to make a strong comeback after winning their last two games. With 4 wins in 7 matches, Mumbai Indians are sitting at fourth position on the points table.
Sunrisers Hyderabad took the field in the last game with a new skipper in Kane Williamson. David Warner was dropped from the playing XI, a decision which drew criticism from several quarters.
It also had a severe impact on the game as the team lacked a power-hitter in a big chase. Rajasthan Royals posted a massive 220-run total in the first innings. In reply, SRH could only manage to score 165 in the second innings. It remains to be which 4 overseas picks would Sunrisers Hyderabad go with.
Having won their last two games, Mumbai Indians have made a strong comeback in the tournament. They now have 4 wins to their name. Middle-order coming back into form is perhaps their biggest boost. Kieron Pollard scored a scintillating 87-run knock in the last game against CSK, while Hardik looked positive in his 16-run cameo.
Mumbai Indians would be confident of earning their third win and making their case stronger.
