Owing to a string of COVID-19 incidents, the VIVO IPL 2021 is staring at the possibility of cancellation. But the BCCI has said that there is no change in the schedule of today’s match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Mumbai Indians. The match tonight will be played at 7:30 PM IST in the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
Both the teams walk into the game on the back of contrasting results. Sunrisers, who are at the bottom of the points table, will need to turn things around quickly if they are to make the playoffs after six losses in seven games. Mumbai Indians on the other hand is 4th on the points table with impressive numbers to their names.
A win in the match against a team like MI will be the morale boost they actually needed. Manish Pandey had quite been impressive in the last game as he had scored 31 runs in 20 balls with a strike rate of 155. Mohammad Nabi had bowled only one over for 21 runs while scoring 17 runs off five.
Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai will join the game fresh off a four-wicket victory over the Chennai Super Kings, thanks to Kieron Pollard’s blitzkrieg. His unbeaten 87 runs off 34 runs might repeat again tonight. He also took 2 wickets alongside Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah who scalped 1 wicket each.
Now that the IPL action resumes, a battle so important seems perfect.
