Sunrisers Hyderabad will face the Mumbai Indians in the penultimate league match of the IPL 2021.

Brilliant spells from Jason Holder and Bhuvneshwar Kumar helped them to secure a win.
Mumbai Indians, five-time winners have had a difficult IPL so far as their playoffs hope still hang in balance. They will keep an eye on the Knight Riders game on Thursday so they can plan their strategies accordingly against the Sunrisers.
