In 2016 IPL, Hyderabad Sunrisers won both the matches against Mumbai Indians, but it was only a reply to the previous record of MI, winning both the games in 2015 season. The Sunrisers are definitely up to a big plan bringing in Mustafizur Rahman to add up its bowling arsenal. Ashish Nehra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been bowling strong and Rahman’s addition will bolster the attack. Mumbai Indians lost Ambati Rayadu, its top batsman in the Pune fixture. The player will not be on the tournament at least for 10 days being injured. Lasith Malinga already delivered the first victory to his team and will be on spot light in the upcoming fixture as well.
On the other side is Nitish Rana who made Mumbai’s batting front at fore. In the previous match, he scored 50 off 29. The Wankhede stadium has been friendly towards the chasing team since 2016. In IPL, Wankhede has been a victory stretch solely for the chasing team at least in the previous five venues. Hyderabad Sunrisers have more reason to chase as their captain David Warner has hammered seven fifties so far while chasing in nine innings since the last IPL season. In a match against Gujrat Lions, the batsman scored 76, which was also while chasing.
Shikhar Dhawan, another top batsman of the team has been a victim of Lasith Malinga, Zaheer Khan and James Faulker in IPL. The top bowlers for Hyderabad so far has been Mustafizur Rahman, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ashish Nehra, who took most of the wickets for the team. Rashid Khan has been a tough bowler in the team who has nicked five wickets in the season so far. The player bowled or trapped wickets with lbw, most of them in the first half of the inning. His inning has been loose in the beginning giving out 31 runs in the first five overs, which becomes economic latter. His spells against batsmen would spice up the tournament for sure.
