The last league match of IPL 2020 will take place between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday. The Orange Army need just two points to set up a clash against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the eliminator, and they will try to give their best performance to stay alive in the competition.
Mi, on the other hand, will aim to continue their winning streak and head into the playoffs in a positive frame of mind. They had defeated Warner & Co. at this venue earlier in this IPL. Thus, Pollard’s men would be optimistic about completing a double over the Orange Army.
Though Sharjah has a reputation of hosting high-scoring games given the dimensions of the ground, it hasn’t been too batting-friendly of late.
The pacers have made the ball move around early in the innings. The spinners have also managed to do well at this venue recently, although they could be undone by dew in the latter half of the match.
Wickets in hand will be key for both sides, with 175-180 being a competitive total on this ground.
