Mumbai vs Hyderabad in Indian T20 League

Mumbai face their arch-nemesis Hyderabad in this battle of equals where both teams do not lose their guards for even one delivery. With both teams having tasted success in recent times, it would be interesting to see how they perform this time around. Mumbai is coming on the back of a title-winning season, whereas Hyderabad performed well to reach the Eliminator 2 last season.

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai has been the most successful team in Indian T20 Premier League with four title wins so he definitely knows how to win. Hyderabad, on the other hand, has now appointed David Warner as their captain, probably to add more bite to their attitude on the field. With both teams having supremely balanced teams before the auction, both did not spend too much during the auctions. Hyderabad did fill the void created by the ban of Shakib-al-Hasan by getting all-rounders like Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen, whereas Mumbai bough the batting superstar Chris Lynn to get an able opening partner for Rohit Sharma.

With both the home grounds of Mumbai and Bangalore being batting-friendly predominantly, we can expect a heavy flow of runs from both the matches. Here, quick bowlers will be in slightly more demand thanks to the extra bounce and pace. However, we can expect Yuzavendra Chahal and Krunal Pandya to get some purchase out of these wickets. All in all, it does sound to be a perfect contest with both bat and ball.
