Dream11 IPL 2020, Match 56: SRH vs MI – Preview
Sharjah Cricket Stadium will host the final league-stage game of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 when Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in Match 56 on Tuesday.
For the David Warner-led SRH, they will need nothing but a win to stake a claim in the top four. On the other hand, MI have already sealed a top spot and are certain to play the Qualifier 1.
While MI will be looking to add one more win to their account, SRH will be eager to come out all guns blazing and here are the players who could play a decisive role in the outcome of the match.
Wriddhiman Saha was brought into the team to replace Jonny Bairstow and the wicketkeeper-batsman has delivered for SRH, scoring 126 runs during SRH’s two successive wins against DC and RCB. While Saha will be looking to contribute to the team’s cause for the third time in as many matches, SRH will be banking on their skipper David Warner in a tie against MI. The swashbuckling left-hander has thus far scored 444 runs this season and he will be looking to add a few more to power his side to a win.
Ishan Kishan was promoted at the top following Rohit Sharma’s injury. While those are big shoes to fill, Kishan has done a remarkable job for his side at the top of the order. The left-hander has scored two fifties in the last four games, including an unbeaten 72 in MI’s last game against DC. Coming to Quinton de Kock, the wicketkeeper-batsman is MI’s leading run-getter this season with 418 runs and four half-centuries to his name. The left-hander will be looking to have another fine outing with the bat before MI play the Qualifier 1.
He picked two wickets and then scored a brisk 26* off 10 balls in SRH’s win over RCB in their last game. The West Indian has 8 wickets to his name from 4 matches and if he continues his good bowling form and chips in with some important runs SRH will be in with a chance to win against MI.
Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have been on fire with the ball and so far, have 43 wickets between them after 13 games. The two will be coming into this game on the back of their three-wicket hauls against Delhi Capitals. While MI have already sealed a place in the Qualifier 1, they will want their two premier bowlers to continue in the same vein.
He has been miserly with the ball in hand and Rashid Khan, who has 18 wickets to his name from 13 games, will be someone that SRH will bank on when they are seeking a much-needed win. If the leg-spinner enjoys another fine outing with the ball, it will boost SRH’s chances to reach the top four.
