It is down to the final match of the season as Sunrisers Hyderabad take on the Mumbai Indians at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. The qualification scenario is simple for Sunrisers Hyderabad, win the match and qualify on the basis of a greater run rate than KKR as both sides would end up on 14 if SRH manages to avenge the dominant Mumbai Indians.
Let’s not expect many changes to any of the sides as Mumbai Indians would also want to get another win under their belt and remain the number one side in the tournament. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad might just want to make a couple of changes to the side’s composition in the middle. Obviously ever since Wriddhiman Saha has started opening for the SRH it has completely changed the complexion of the side.
Also with Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar scoring runs in the middle order, all looks perfectly sorted for the ‘Deccan’ based franchise. Which is why let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for when Mumbai Indians take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at Sharjah.
Let’s take a look at the five key players to watch out for when Mumbai Indians lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad at Sharjah Cricket Stadium:
1. Jasprit Bumrah
The leader of the pace bowling attack of Mumbai Indians had a patchy start to the 2020 IPL season. But ever since he started opening the bowling for Mumbai Indians in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Sharjah, Bumrah has looked in good mojo and expected to continue the same form going ahead in the season.
As of now, the speedster is the holder of the Purple cap ahead of Kagiso Rabada. It’s quite remarkable that Bumrah has managed to reach this mark after he started off this season in rough fashion.
