Mumbai Indians will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the league match of IPL 2021, aka Indian Premier League, which will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Mumbai Indians earned a brilliant win in the last game, and they would want to continue their momentum. Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav are looking in brilliant batting form, whereas Rahul Chahar will again be handy on this spinning pitch. The lower middle-order needs to fire, whereas Quinton de Kock would want to regain his form.
Sunrisers Hyderabad boasts a wonderful squad, and they need to bounce back after two successive defeats. David Warner fired in the last game, whereas Manish is scoring runs, but he needs to focus on his strike rate.
