The Mumbai Indians will face the Sun-Racers Hyderabad in their next match at Wankhede Stadium. The team led by Rohit Sharma secured a comfortable victory despite a setback in their pursuit in their previous match against Chennai Super Kings. With only three wins from 12 matches, the Mumbai Indians did not rejoice and wanted to start the season with a win.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad fell after making a good start and losing their last five matches in a row. The team led by Ken Williamson also has a negative running rate, so they will need to win the remaining two games by a large margin, and other results are expected to follow their path.

Probable Top Performers
Possibly the best hitter of the match
Tilak Verma has played some high-quality tournament entries in his first season and he is undoubtedly one of the most exciting prospects for Indians in Mumbai. The left-hander has scored 368 points in 12 games so far this season and played 34 unbeaten shots versus 32 from a decisive position in the previous match against CSK.
He might be the best player in the game
Jasprit Bumrah was excellent at the new ball for the Mumbai Indians in the previous match and finished on 1/12 of his three with his first match. The right arm rhythm created good momentum and he was ready to move the ball in both directions. He has definitely found the rhythm and will also be a key figure in the next match.
