Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Betting Tips

Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Mumbai Indians in match 55 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

For the home team in this fixture, the game is of hardly any significance as they are certain to finish on the last spot of the league table after managing to gather just six points after 13 matches played.

However, the management will be hoping that the players will turn up and produce a kind of display that would help the Sunrisers in finishing the competition on a high.

On the other hand, for the defending champions, the match will be a do-or-die one if they want to stay alive in the race for the playoffs. As things stand, they have 12 points after 13 matches.

Therefore, the management will be hoping to see the players produce their best performance when it will matter the most.

In the match between the teams earlier in the competition, it was Mumbai who came out on top with a 13-run margin.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form and Team news:

After securing a rare win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the previous outing, Sunrisers Hyderabad are unlikely to make any changes in the playing XI for their last match in the competition.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of captain Kane Williamson, hard-hitting opener Jason Roy, wicketkeeper-batter Wriddhiman Saha and all-rounder Jason Holder to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Umran Malik, Jason Holder along the star leg-spinner Rashid Khan to claim timely wickets and restrict the opposition to a manageable total.

Mumbai Indians Form and Team News:

After registering a thumping eight-wicket win against the Rajasthan Royals in their previous fixture, Mumbai Indians will enter the contest against the Sunrisers Hyderabad with a lot of confidence.

However, after a near-perfect performance in the previous match, the chances of any significant changes in the playing XI remain slim.

The management will be keen to remind the players that they will have to play out of their skins and ensure that the team will register a big win in their final outing—because of their inferior net run-rate compared to Kolkata Knight Riders—if they are to have a significant chance of securing a spot in the playoffs.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of captain Rohit Sharma, wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary along with hard-hitting all-rounders Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, James Neesham and Nathan Coulter-Nile to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Coulter-Nile, Neesham, Pollard along with the left-arm spin of Krunal Pandya to dismantle the opposition’s batting unit.
