1. Team News – Mumbai Indians
Mumbai’s biggest worry is their batting which has not been fired yet. They have some huge names in their ranks like Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Quinton de Kock, Hardik Pandya etc but a collective firing has not happened yet. But MI can explode without any warning and it can hurt any team in the fray. Mumbai bowling looked sharp under Jasprit Bumrah and spinner Rahul Chahar and they will hope that the bowling unit will continue to churn out polished efforts.
2. Team News – Sunrisers Hyderabad
The SRH has all the right ingredients to snap the run of any team but they have not been able to produce a cohesive effort in IPL 2021 so far. But the Warner-led team can overturn the lean run anytime and pose serious threat to opponents and the match against Mumbai Indians is as good an opportunity as any other.
