Mumbai & Hyderabad to faceoff in curious IPL league juncture
Mumbai batsmen Ishan Kishan said the team will bounce back in the match against Hyderabad.

Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad are preparing for their next faceoff at a special juncture of the IPL league phase. Mumbai Indians nicked only a single match so far in the tournament and Hyderabad won some of the tough games. Still, in terms of run-rate, Mumbai is strong on IPL 2018 Charts. The win against Royal Challengers Bangalore helped them scale the point to better heights. The team is going through a phase where the senior players are still dormant with their strikes, but new entrants are showing up good forms. In previous matches, players like Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Mayank Markande played impressive innings.

Records of previous win or loss suggest Sunrisers have a better winning rate. In the last five matches, the latter won four. However, Wankhede have offers good games to Mumbai. Sunrisers’ record in the ground is not too colorful losing all three of three matches they played. Team captain Kane Williamson cautioned on being “to reactive”. He emphasized on focusing on their plans work to achieve them as they did earlier. On the other hand, Mumbai Player Ishan Kishan expects the upcoming match to be a “bounce-back” tournament for Mumbai. He said, the team will bounce back and they will play their best cricket.

Sunrisers Hyderabad won three IPL 2018 matches so far, in contrast to Mumbai’s one. But they lost the two matches they played at the latest. A woeful middle order batting is to blame for the slog. Bowling has been the prime strength of the squad along with a strong top order batting. In this match against Mumbai, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is dropped, bringing Sandeep Sharma on board as a replacement. Another bowler, Yusuf Pathan is expected to join along with Shikhar Dhawan, who almost had a fracture in the previous campaign. The team is also looking at Alex Hales as an option to replace Dhawan. The player has an impressive record of playing powerplay overs.
