Sunrisers Hyderabad will welcome Mumbai Indians in the match 12 of the Indian Premier League 2016. The latest Sunrisers Hyderabad v Mumbai Indians betting tips for this IPL encounter can be checked below.
Sunrisers Hyderabad failed once again to open their points tally in the IPL, as they lost to Kolkata Knight Riders by eight wickets most recently. Being the home side and having chosen to bat first, the best their batsmen could do was a 142 runs in 20 overs.
Eoin Morgan was the only one to have shown some kind of stature, scoring 51 runs off 42 deliveries. Knight Riders chased this target down by the 19th over, losing only two wickets.
With their remaining batsmen failing on the Hyderabad pitch miserably, one can only anticipate how they will solve this problem against Mumbai Indians. The shaky form of the opening batsmen such as Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner is only made worse by the absence of Yuvraj Singh from the squad.
They dealt a severe blow in the bowling as well, with the injury of Ashish Nehra.
However, even the visitors aren’t too far ahead, considering that they just lost their second match of the season. Sitting at the sixth place, they just lost to Gujarat Lions by three wickets. Following the same trend as that of their opponents, their batsmen too failed to get some momentum in the match.
Carrying some of the biggest names in the T20 cricket such as Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard, they failed to perform against the Lions, scoring just seven and one respectively. However, Mitchell McClenaghan showed some kind of hope for the side, as he took four wickets, giving just 21 runs.
This particular fixture is going to be intriguing for many reasons, one of which is the form of the two sides. Being in the same rout, both the teams have definitely got an equal chance here. However, a slightly strong looking bowling attack from the Mumbai Indians may give them the edge here.
