After losing the first game to RCB, Mumbai Indians were in trouble against KKR after getting bowled out for 152. However, they justified their title of the defending champions and successfully defended the total. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, are yet to open their account after two close losses. The batting from both teams have been pretty ordinary and both would like to fix their issues in the upcoming game. However, run scoring won’t be easy considering the quality in the bowling department of both teams. Here are some of the numbers you need to know before the match.
Head to Head – It’s a very close tussle between the two teams in IPL with both SRH and MI winning 8 games apiece. Since 2018, it’s again neck and neck with both teams winning 3 games each.
5 – David Warner has smashed 518 boundaries and 195 maximums in the tournament. He needs another 5 sixes to complete 200 maximums and join the elite league of Chris Gayle (351) and AB de Villiers (237) in the list of most sixes by an overseas player in the IPL.
48 – Krunal Pandya has taken 48 wickets in the IPL and needs another 2 wickets to complete the half-century of wickets in IPL.
198 – Kieron Pollard has hit 198 sixes in the tournament and needs 2 more sixes to hit a double century of sixes in the Indian T20 extravaganza
Kieron Pollard can decimate the best bowlers while Bhuvneshwar Kumar is looking in fine rhythm. The battle between the two will be a treat to watch. The Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer has been very dominant over the West Indian and has dismissed him 3 times in 22 balls. The MI batsman has managed to score just 30 runs at an average of 10.
Another contest that is worth a watch is Rashid Khan vs Hardik Pandya. Pandya is very aggressive against the spinners while Rashid is a master spinner. The leg spinner has got the better of Pandya on 2 occasions in 33 balls. The MI batsman averages 9 against Rashid and has scored just 18 runs.
