Hyderabad and Mumbai will face each other in the 65th game of the tournament. These two teams will play each other for the first time in the 2022 season. While both teams find themselves at the bottom half of the points table, only Hyderabad is still alive in the playoff contention. Entering this game, Hyderabad lost their previous five matches while Mumbai have won three of their last four fixtures.
Mumbai would like to end their disappointing season with wins in their last two matches. In a below-par tournament, several players from the team have displayed a lot of promise. Tilak Varma has been one of the best young batters in the tournament as he has scored 368 at an average of 40.9. In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah has been Mumbai’s best bowler but his best form has come after the team was knocked out of the final four race. Similarly, Riley Meredith has also put up some incredible performances in the previous few games.
Hyderabad, meanwhile, did register a few wins together at one point but are entering this fixture after losing five straight games. Their batting lineup with Rahul Tripathi, Nicolas Pooran and Aiden Markram has put up some incredible performances. But their captain Kane Williamson hasn’t got going at all. Similarly, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan and Umran Malik have been an incredible bowling attack as they have picked a bunch of wickets. Abhishek Sharma has also emerged as the team’s premier all-rounder with contributions with both bat and ball.
