Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Mumbai Indians in the 56th match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sharjah Cricket Ground and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.
So we’re into the final league game of the Indian Premier League and still, even after 55 games we are yet to find all the 4 times for the playoffs. That’s the competitiveness we’ve seen in this year’s IPL. The situation for Sunrisers Hyderabad is pretty simple. If they win, they’re through to the playoffs on account of a better run rate but they’re up against the best team of the tournament, Mumbai Indians, so a win will require some exceptional performances. Sunrisers Hyderabad have some momentum on their side going into this match as they’re coming back from two massive wins over Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The problem for Sunrisers still will be their batting that has not been that consistent. Yes, they got 219 against Delhi Capitals the other day but they lack depth in their batting. Wridhhiman Saha at the top has been exceptional in two games he’s played while David Warner too has been among the runs. However, the likes of Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson have been very disappointing. Sunrisers will need them to deliver in this knockout game. Credit must go to the Hyderabad bowler for standing up tall even without the services of their main bowler, Bhuvenshwar Kumar.
Mumbai Indians will be there to give Hyderabad a run for their money. Looking at Mumbai Indians squad, they look a team that’s very hard to defeat. Not that they can’t lose but you need to put together an exceptional performance to get over them. As a team, they’ve a brutal batting line up while Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and Nathan Coulter-Nile form a lethal pace attack. The only weak link in the Mumbai Indian seem to be their lower middle order in Krunal Pandya, Jayant Yadav and Keiron Pollard that hasn’t had enough chances to bat. Hardik Pandya was rested for the last game and Mumbai, having already qualified for the playoffs might not want to stress his ace finisher against SRH.

SRH vs MI Toss Prediction
Toss will be crucial as batting second can be comparatively easy because of the dew.
The weather in Sharjah will be challenging with temperatures in the high thirties.
The pitch at Sharjah looks slow and batting won’t be the easiest task here. However, dew will aid the team batting second by slightly nullifying the slowness of the wicket
