Hyderabad, April 06, Saturday at 08:00 PM IST
In the second fixture of Saturday’s doubleheader, table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad will be seen squaring off against high on confidence Mumbai Indians at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in the night. The hosts registered 5 wickets win over Delhi Capitals in their last encounter while Mumbai Indians are coming after thumping high-flying Chennai Super Kings by 37 runs at their home ground- Wankhede Stadium.
After facing 6 wickets defeat against Kolkata in the opening fixture, Sunrisers Hyderabad has bounced back with three consecutive wins and has clinched the top spot from reigning champions Chennai Super Kings, owing to better run rate. The opening duo of J Bairstow and D Warner have proved out to be the most destructive opening pair of Vivo IPL 2019 and it will be interesting to watch how Jasprit Bumrah and Jason Behrendorff bowl to them.
The clash will also feature plenty of potential match winners in the likes of Hardik Pandya, V Shankar, Rashid Khan and Mohd Nabi. All the four have been instrumental in previous wins of their respective sides. While both the teams look completely balanced and in rhythm, a power-packed thriller is expected to take place tonight. The match will begin at 08:00 PM IST.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab in the first fixture of Saturday’s doubleheader at MA Chidambaram Stadium in the evening.
