Mumbai Indians have been eliminated from IPL 2022. They will play for pride, and also to ruin Sunrisers Hyderabad’s playoffs chances, when the two sides meet at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday.
SRH are on a five-match losing streak. They are placed on the eighth rung of the IPL 2022 points table with five wins and seven losses. Kane Williamson and co will have to win all their remaining games to make it to the playoffs.
The Orange Army come to this game on the back of a 54-run defeat against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Washington Sundar and T Natarajan were back for the team but the team gave away 177 runs in the first innings. Batting second, they were contained to 123 for 8 in 20 overs.
If SRH manage to win their remaining games, the team will reach 14 points and will have an outside chance of making the play-offs. One of their primary concerns is skipper Williamson’s form. The Kiwi has collected just 208 runs from 12 games at an average of 18.92. His fellow opener Abhishek Sharma, on the other hand, is having a decent run.
Mumbai Indians on the other hand would want to score their fourth win of the season. Rohit Sharma and co come to the game riding on a five-wicket win over the Chennai Super Kings, whom they bundled out for 97.
