The 12th season of the Indian Premier League will have a game being played SunRisers Hyderabad host Mumbai Indians in the regular season on Saturday.
SunRisers Hyderabad are joint leaders of the IPL this season and have won three games out of four this season. With a net run rate of +1.78, that is a spectacular stat. The team has been thoroughly dominant in the last two games, blowing oppositions out. If the win against RCB was a stellar show of batting performance, the one against DC showcased their ability of how easily they can suffocate people if given the right pitch to bowl on. They don’t have a clear weakness, and that is one of the biggest assets a team can have who have aspirations of becoming the champions of the IPL.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians are a three-time IPL champion and have an even record so far. They seem to have found their groove and are looking like the menacing side that was predicted out of them. The franchise has got a lot of glamour behind them, and the players have more often than not performed to live up to the expectations. From this point forth, consistency has to be the key or else they might get into a scrap for a spot in the playoffs when the season is about to be over.
