Mumbai Indians (MI) face SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in match 65 of the current Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season, Tuesday at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. MI is currently at the bottom of the IPL 2022 points table and is already out of the playoffs. In 12 games, they have racked up six points, including three wins and nine losses. All eyes will be on Daniel Sams, who took three wickets to help Mumbai defeat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by five wickets in their previous match.
Here’s how MI might position itself towards SRH:
Ishan Kishan: With two games to go for MI, Ishan Kishan is aiming for a high score. The wicketkeeper batter failed to justify his price tag and was sent off cheaply against CSK after registering just six runs from five balls.
Rohit Sharma: The MI captain has had a good start to the season but failed to convert them into big scores.
Daniel Sams: In MI’s previous game, Daniel Sams was promoted higher in the ranking, but he could only collect one run of six balls. Despite his bad knock, Sams’ heroism with the ball MI won the game.
Tilak Varma: Tilak Varma was again crucial for MI, playing an unbeaten KO of 34 runs off 32 balls as his side successfully chased a 98-run goal in 14.5 overs.
Tristan Stubbs: Tristan Stubbs failed to impress vs CSK and was fired for a two-ball duck. If he gets another chance, he hopes to make his mark.
Hrithik Shokeen: Hrithik Shokeen adds more depth to this MI squad and will try to contribute more with both bat and ball.
Tim David: Tim David has finally started to justify his role as a finisher. He will build on his achievements.
Ramandeep Singh: Ramandeep Singh was good with the ball against CSK and took over a wicket in one, giving up five runs.
Jasprit Bumrah: The pacer was again clinical for Mumbai in their previous match. He will try to build on his momentum leading up to the upcoming T20 World Cup.
Riley Meredith: Riley Meredith was in good form against CSK, taking two wickets in three overs, giving up just 27 runs.
Kumar Kartikeya: The spinner was on top form against CSK and caused the dismissal of Dwayne Bravo and Simarjeet Singh.
