The 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is in full flow with the crowd witnessing some close games.
Mostly the start of IPL has been injury hit with high profile players like Kagiso Rabada, Mitchell Starc, Kedhar Jadhav and others.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will face defending champions Mumbai Indians on Thursday.
The Hyderabad franchise nearly had a perfect start but to maintain the momentum the top players need to be on form, especially the likes of Dhawans and Williamsons. The Kiwi has set the ground running with a classy run out, a great catch and an unbeaten match-winning knock.
Mumbai on the other side of the coin, didn’t have a good start with both the openers Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis struggling, but the middle order stood up for the team and made a statement. But Mumbai will be sweating in for the fitness of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, after he suffered a twisted ankle in the last game.
HEAD TO HEAD: 5-5, Both teams are equal when it comes to head-to-head statistics so far in the competition, but it is at Hyderabad that the hosts lead Mumbai 3-2.
