Mumbai Indians (MI) will square off against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium as we head into the second double-header day in the Dream11 IPL.
MI started their campaign with a loss against Chennai Super Kings. But bounced back in style, beating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their second game. While they came tantalisingly close to sealing a stunning win in their third game, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) beat MI in a Super Over. MI, though, registered a comprehensive win against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to return to winning ways.
Meanwhile, SRH come into this game on the back of two successive wins and will be keen to complete a hat-trick of wins. While SRH lost their first two games – against RCB and KKR, they defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) and CSK on the bounce to add four points to their account.
With both the teams looking to register their third win of the season and the game is to be played in Sharjah – which has turned out to be a batsman’s paradise – we are in for an entertaining contest.
