If any of the two teams are close to qualifying for the playoffs in this ongoing IPL 2019 contest, then they are Mumbai and SRH (Sunrisers Hyderabad). Separated by just two points with SRH at 12 points and MI at 14 points, both the teams will square off in Mumbai tonight in the 51st match of the IPL. Both the teams have every chance in the world to end up in the top two positions as they have better NRR when compared to the other teams’ loss for SRH would be detrimental to their prospects of qualifying for the playoffs.
SRH – missing links
SRH will find it tough without their openers David Warner and Johnny Bairstow to get a start. The Aussie-English pair has been prolific throughout this season and they have played a great role in all their wins. In their absence, SRH would be trying to rope in Martin Guptill in the team in place of Warner and with Wriddhiman Saha joining the ranks already, they would expect Guptill and Saha to deliver.
Kane Williamson’s form is a cause for worry, he would like to return to the thick of the action with a big score tonight. Manish Pandey returning to form after a series of inconsistent performances is a positive sign for SRH. Kane Williamson led side would like to compensate for their batting woes with their bowling department which has been consistent. SRH’s bowlers have been outstanding throughout the tournament. The Afghani duo (Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi), Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, and Khaleel Ahmed were brilliant this season.
Mumbai – one stop to final
Team Mumbai is coming into the match after a 3-day break from their previous match where they were mauled relentlessly by Andre Russell’s brutal assault. Despite Hardik Pandya’s heroics, the 233 target was too daunting. Rohit Sharma has enough time to ponder over the team combination after 4 away matches where their success rate has been 50%. Mumbai might consider including Mitchell McClenaghan to bolster their bowling line up.
Despite scoring in excess of 300 runs each, neither of Quinton De Kock or Rohit Sharma has hit the straps. With World Cup approaching in a few days, both the batsmen who are opening the innings for their respective countries have to return to form. Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga will have to keep things tight. A win for the Rohit Sharma led franchise would bolster their chances to top the league.
Predict & Win double
In the 13 matches both the teams have played between themselves, SRH has a slight upper hand with 7 wins. The 51st game is at Wankhede Stadium tonight at 8 PM. Who do you think would prevail in this crucial encounter? Would it be the uber-calm Kane Williamson or cool and calculative Rohit Sharma?
