Mumbai Indians v Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 06 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad; the match starts at 02:30 PM GMT. MI and SRH have played 12 games against each other in IPL so far, SRH won 7 and MI won 5 games.
Rashid Khan was named the ‘Man of the Match’ in both legs – home and away – against Mumbai Indians in 2018 for his figures of 4-0-13-1 & 4-1-11-2 respectively. While the star leg-spinner has taken three wickets in four matches this season at an economy rate under 6, his fellow countryman Mohammad Nabi has outshone Rashid in both the matches they’ve played together. Apart from the Afghan spin-twins, there’s another – perhaps more dangerous – duo that Mumbai will have to deal with.
In an Ashes year, it’s an Aussie-English pair that’s ruling the roost in the Indian Premier League.Four outings together, Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have stitched three century partnerships and one half-ton stand batting at the top of the order. They have amassed 510 runs, which turns out to be 68.5% of the team’s total runs. Add a couple of cameos from Vijay Shankar to it, and you are staring at a formidable top-three.
