Mumbai Indians have more games to test bench
- Will Arjun Tendulkar get a game?
- Sunrisers Hyderabad ponder Kane Williamson’s form
Skipper Kane Williamson’s form has been questionable in IPL 2022 with the SRH opener striking at a rate of under 100. SRH have only 10 points with two matches to go, and are still in contention to be in the playoffs, but a lot of it will depend on other results going their way. They have odds of 2.01 to win the match.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have won two of their last three matches and are chopping and changing to give their bench more matches, now that they are out of contention. They have odds of 1.78 to win this match.
How the season has gone…
Sunrisers Hyderabad won five games on the trot, but then went downhill pretty quickly afterwards, losing five matches together to go from the top four into the bottom three. A loss here could potentially see him finish in the bottom two as well. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, had a dreadful start to the season and never really recovered from it.

A crucial factor in this game would be Jasprit Bumrah returning to form and Sunrisers Hyderabad struggling with their batting. With Daniel Sams and Riley Meredith also stepping up, Mumbai will be banking on the pace unit to win them the game.
Keep an eye on…
Jasprit Bumrah: The Mumbai quick struggled through the season before spectacularly turning it around with a breathtaking 5/10, the best figures by an Indian in the IPL. He will be key in silencing the SRH middle-order.
Aiden Markram: Against a pace-heavy side, expect Aiden Markram to come to the party, especially if he is asked to open the batting, a possibility with Kane Williamson struggling in the position this year.
TIP: Daniel Sams has been among the wickets and has odds of 3.76 to be the top bowler for MI.
