Both teams have finally managed to get some answers to their worries and will look to continue their momentum the same way. While Sunrisers Hyderabad would be happy with the form of Harry Brook and Aiden Markram, along with their home advantage, Mumbai Indians will be happy with the form of their captain Rohit Sharma and young Tilak Verma.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Mumbai Indians Captain Rohit Sharma is back in the form he is known to be in. The Hitman is finally in the zone to help the Mumbai Indians get the two valuable points and the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s relatively weaker bowling attack, coupled with the batting-friendly pitch, will only help Rohit Sharma to be the best batter of the match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been an undisputed champion player for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was his bowling effort that helped the Sunrisers Hyderabad defend a 220+ total against the raging batting order of the Kolkata Knight Riders. This is why he may be the best bowler of the match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will be up against the Mumbai Indians in the 69th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on 21st May 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset.
The Wankhede Stadium is popular for its belter of a pitch and fast outfield. It is a day game and that is why the heat of Mumbai may test the side fielding first. The captain who wins the toss may want to field first regardless of the heat. Along with that, the shorter boundary on all sides may prove to be a crucial factor as well as the dew coming in the later half of the game in deciding the outcome of the match.
Today’s match prediction: Final Thoughts
While both teams would like to gain some momentum, it can be expected that it will be a thrilling contest between the two teams. Mumbai Indians, because of their in-form players and team combinations, may emerge victorious.
