Hyderabad’s batting failed against Bengaluru
In the last match against Bengaluru, SRH needed 35 runs in the last 4 overs. But the team could only score 28 runs and lost 7 wickets during this period.

In such a situation, with the victory in this match, this team would like to return to the tournament.

In response, the Kolkata team needed 31 runs in the last 5 overs to win. At that time, Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell were present at the crease, but could not win the team. Bowling in Mumbai’s death over was fantastic. In such a situation, the team would like to retain the momentum of victory.
MI will come down to improve the success rate against SRH
Rohit would not like to change to playing-11. In batting, he and Suryakumar Yadav are in excellent form. Whereas, in the previous match, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya also played small, important innings of 15-15 runs in the lower order. In such a situation, the 5-time champions Mumbai team would like to improve their success rate against Hyderabad by winning this match.
