SunRisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians will lock horns in Sharjah and what would be the final league match of IPL 2020. At the same time, Mumbai Indians are not only the table-toppers and guaranteed a top-two spot but also are the only team to reach the playoffs of IPL 2020. Hence, SunRisers Hyderabad will have their task cut out against the defending champions.
SunRisers Hyderabad seemed to have worked out their top-order, which remained inconsistent when Jonny Bairstow and David Warner opened. Instead, David Warner and Saha are currently the opening batsmen while Bairstow made way for Kane Williamson to provide some stability in the middle-order. Hyderabad’s bowling attack, in particular, is exceptional as all the bowlers have played their part in the last two games.
Mumbai Indians, who have beat SunRisers Hyderabad, will begin as favourites despite Rohit Sharma’s uncertainty concerning his availability. They have all their bases covered not only to emerge victorious against the SunRisers but also to clinch their fifth IPL title and second consecutive. The defending champions could still rest Hardik Pandya, considering that he might have a vital role to play in the playoffs.
