Mumbai are 6th in the standings with 14 points but still have a chance to move up the table. A win would take them into the top-four and then they can hope for Royal Challengers Bangalore to lose later in the day. Another way is for either Chennai or Lucknow to lose their matches on Saturday. There’s no scope of progression with a defeat.

I am backing Mumbai to make a strong case for a win with a big start. Mumbai Indians are set to post the highest powerplay score.

  • Mumbai Indians have posted the highest powerplay score in 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad have conceded the highest first 6 overs score in 6 of their last 9 matches (IPL)
  • Heinrich Klaasen has been Sunrisers Hyderabad’s top-scorer in their last 3 matches (IPL)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost 7 of their last 9 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have won 4 of their last 5 matches at this venue (IPL)

Head to Head


Mumbai Indians have played Sunrisers Hyderabad in 20 matches in this competition so far. Of these, there have been 11 wins for Mumbai and nine wins for Hyderabad.

When the sides met earlier in Hyderabad, Mumbai won by 14 runs. Cameron Green (64) was their best batter while three bowlers including Piyush Chawla took two wickets each.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai could be keeping a keen eye on Saturday’s matches as Chennai or Lucknow or both could go to 17 points and book their spots. In that case, only one qualifying place will be left for Sunday.

Rohit Sharma’s team is coming off a five-run loss to Lucknow Super Giants, but have won four of the previous five. Also, they have won their last three matches at this venue.

The loss to Lucknow came after Mumbai failed to make their opening partnership count failing to get past Lucknow’s slog over bowling.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Thilak Varma remains uncertain but if he’s available, Nehal Wadhera could be the one to be replaced. Chris Jordan’s poor bowling form may see Riley Meredith come into the game.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


Sunrisers Hyderabad are already eliminated and can only dream of avoiding the last place. That would be out of question if Delhi win on Saturday.

If Delhi loses, Hyderabad could make a jump off the bottom with a victory. Hyderabad are coming off an eight-wicket loss to Bangalore which was their third in a row.

There’s nothing to lose or gain for Hyderabad, but the challenge is to find the right spirit to fight for pride. The Sunrisers have struggled to give adequate support to Heinrich Klaasen who has been their lone warrior in their last three matches.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


There aren’t any injuries for Hyderabad but with a number of spots up for grabs, there could be changes in the playing XI.
