While talking about the standings of these two teams in the ongoing edition of the tournament, the Sunrisers Hyderabad are languishing at the bottom of the points table while Mumbai Indians are placed at the sixth position.
Both these teams have not been in the best of forms in the ongoing edition of the tournament. The Sunrisers Hyderabad have had a really disappointing IPL 2021 campaign as they have managed to win just three matches this season and have suffered a total of 10 losses. On the other hand, things have not worked in the ideal manner for the Mumbai Indians as well having won 6 out of their 13 matches. The Sunrisers Hyderabad have already been knocked out of the tournament while the Mumbai Indians need to win by a minimum of 171 runs today in order to qualify for the playoffs.
In the 17 matches played between these two teams in the history of the Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians are ahead in this stiff head -to-head rivalry with a total of 9 wins while Sunrisers Hyderabad have emerged victorious on 8 occasions. Earlier in the IPL 2021 season, the Mumbai Indians registered an impressive 13-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai.

Pitch Report: As seen in the previous games at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, there was some extra assistance for the pacers and spinners. The pitch has surely been challenging for the batters but things are expected to improve for the batters to a great extent in this game. However, bowling first will be a safe decision after winning the toss on this surface. The average first innings total will once again remain around the 150-160 mark.
Toss Update: Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bat first.
It will be really important from the fantasy cricket point of view to pick a mixed combination of the players from either of the sides in your dream teams. Things will be favourable for the bowlers in this venue as seen in the tournament so far and thus include as many pacers and spinners to increase the chances of winning big contests. The likes of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Rashid Khan and Manish Pandey will be the must picks in this contest.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Ishan Kishan, Wriddhiman Saha
BATSMEN: Rohit Sharma, Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya
ALL-ROUNDERS: Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder
BOWLERS: Jasprit Bumrah, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rashid Khan
The Mumbai Indians will definitely start as the overwhelming favourites to win this match due to their better performance in this entire tournament so far as compared to the opposition. Mumbai Indians will also hope to win by a big margin in order to stand a chance for qualification. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad would also want to finish their IPL 2021 campaign on a winning note.
It has been a disastrous Indian Premier League 2021 campaign for the Sunrisers Hyderabad as they have won only two matches and suffered 11 convincing losses. Most importantly, it has been their batsmen who have been struggling with bad form on consistent and it is surely high time that the likes of Kane Williamson, Wriddhiman Saha and Jason Roy step up to take some sort of responsibility in the batting department. On the other hand, Jason Holder, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan will hold the key with the ball.
Sunrisers Hyderabad premier leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been in a stunning form this season picking wickets at regular intervals for his team. He has taken a total of 16 wickets at an impressive economy rate. Also, the Afghan leg-spinner has stood up for his team in the difficult situations.
For the Sunrisers Hyderabad, all-rounder Jason Holder delivered a superb performance both with the bat and ball in the last game against Punjab Kings. Holder first picked up the prized scalps of KL Rahul, Deepak Hooda and Mayank Aggarwal with the ball giving away just 19 runs in his quota of four overs. He then clobbered an amazing unbeaten cameo of 47 runs off just 29 balls that included a total of 5 sixes. He will be eyeing to continue his all-round work.

For the Mumbai Indians, both their batters and bowlers will be aiming to come up with an improved effort both in the batting and bowling department. The likes of Trent Boult, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jasprit Bumrah and Jayant Yadav were excellent with the ball in the previous game. Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Ishan Kishan will have to take some more responsibility in the batting department.
For the Mumbai Indians, captain Rohit Sharma has surely been their best batsman in the ongoing edition of the tournament. Alongside his opening partner Quinton de Kock, the senior Indian batsman has provided his IPL franchise with some consistent starts at the top this season. Also, he has a brilliant track record against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL history. Rohit Sharma has scored more than 300 runs this year at a fine strike-rate as well.
Mumbai Indians’ pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has been in an absolutely stunning form in this ongoing IPL 2021 Phase 2 and the good news for the Indian team as well is that he is picking wickets at regular basis. Bumrah picked up three wickets each in back-to-back matches against Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore. He also finished with two crucial scalps in the last win against Punjab. He will surely be an important clog if Mumbai Indians have to qualify for the playoffs.
