IPL Update: SRH Desperately Need A Win Against MI
Sunrisers Hyderabad will desperately need a win against Mumbai Indians on Saturday. They have lost two previous encounters against Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Hyderabad are currently at the bottom of the league table and they are the only side not to register a win yet in this tournament. So, they will try to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
Mumbai Indians have lost their first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, they have won their second match against Kolkata Knight Riders from a losing position. So, that win will certainly act as a confidence booster for Mumbai Indians. The failure of the batting unit at the back end of the innings has been an issue for them in this season. The team management will try to address it very quickly in the early stage of the tournament.
Status Of The Teams:
Mumbai Indians team management do not like to change much in their starting XI. They will play with the same set of players in this match. However, the slowish nature of the wicket doesn't suit the batsmen of Mumbai. That's why they are struggling to post a big total on the board. Surya Kumar Yadav has been playing really well for them so far in this season. The team management might want to have one more spinner in this kind of track.
Probable Starting XI:
Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Marco Jansen, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
Kane Williamson might come in the starting XI for Sunrisers Hyderabad in this match
. Kane Williamson is a perfect batsman for these tracks. However, his fitness is still an issue and the management will certainly look after that. Rashid Khan has been superb for them with the bowl. The other bowlers need to support him a bit more. On the other hand, Manish Pandey should take more responsibility as a senior Indian batsman.
Probable Starting XI:
David Warner (C), Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Manish Pandey, Jonny Bairstow, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shahbaz Nadeem, T Natarajan.
