Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will lock horns for the second this season on Tuesday. Despite having a strong roster, SRH is having a disastrous season this year and their chances of making the playoffs are almost over. On the other hand, after defeating CSK in their last fixture, MI is back in the business and currently holds the 4th spot in the points table.
This match will take place at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi. The pitch at this stadium is known for helping the batsmen put big scores in matches. So you should expect more of the same in the upcoming fixture between SRH and MI as well. Whichever team bats first need to score at least more than 175 runs to have a chance of winning the match.
Despite the entire SRH team struggling, Jonny Bairstow has carried himself out to the ground with a certain swagger. The English international has scored 248 runs so far with an average of 41.33 and a solid strike rate of 141.71. Moreover, he has crossed the 50-run mark twice as well.
From MI’s dugout, their skipper Rohit Sharma is having yet another good season. Sharma has produced 250 runs so far with an average of 35.71 and strike rate of 128.21. But he has scored just a single half-century so far, that is something he might want to improve in the upcoming games. You can invest in the combos on Khiladi Adda to increase your chances of winning huge rewards.
The next batsmen you can include in your fantasy team is current SRH skipper Kane Williamson. Williamson has played 4 matches so far and has scored 128 runs with an average of 128 because he remained not out in all of his innings until the last match. He has a strike rate of 126.73 and has scored one half-century too.
Rashid Khan is the leading wicket-taker for SRH this season with 10 wickets in his bag. He took those wickets at an average of 17.20 and a fabulous economy rate of 6.14. However, despite Rashid’s efforts, the other bowlers have faded into the background this season.
Kieron Pollard was the sole reason why MI were able to chase a monstrous total of 219 runs in their last encounter with CSK. Pollard scored an unbeaten 87 runs off 34 deliveries. For the season he has gathered 168 runs at a team-high average of 56.00 and a monstrous strike rate of 171.43. Pollard scored his sole fifty in the last match itself. Apart from batting Pollard has emerged effectively with the ball as well. He has 3 wickets in his bag with an average of 18.00 and an economy rate of 7.53.
Including the fixture earlier this year, MI and SRH have battled 17 times in IPL history. And Mumbai holds the lead with 9 victories to its names. For this upcoming match, MI should extend their lead to 10 wins as they currently have big momentum after defeating table-toppers CSK.
