Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians, Indian Premier League 2021, 55th Match Match Details, Schedule, Summary |


Watch Daniel Vettori and Gautam Gambhir in our live show

Rajeev: “I’d have loved to see Chris Lynn for NCN in MI today. He could take off in a second and become another Corey Anderson” — And even performed the magic and the miracle perhaps?

Sumanthraviprol: “From captain to not playing in the eleven (Warner) and from not being in the eleven to being the captain (Manish Pandey) SRH has tried everything in this edition without much success”

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1 Jason Roy, 2 Abhishek Sharma, 3 Manish Pandey (capt), 4 Priyam Garg, 5 Abdul Samad, 6 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 7 Jason Holder, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Mohammad Nabi, 10 Siddarth Kaul, 11 Umran Malik

Mumbai Indians: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Ishan Kishan (wk), 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Kieron Pollard, 5 Hardik Pandya, 6 James Neesham, 7 Krunal Pandya, 8 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9 Piyush Chawla, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Trent Boult

5.30pm So the news is that Mumbai win the toss and bat first. Rohit calls the numbers “scary”, and hopes his side can just enjoy the game. He points out to their batting that has let them down in the UAE. Two changes: Krunal and Piyush Chawla in for Tiwary and Jayant Yadav. Meanwhile, Pandey says Williamson had an elbow injury last moment, and so both him and Bhuvneshwar are out, who also has a finger injury.

But look, Manish Pandey comes out for the toss for Sunrisers.

Looks like the toss here has been delayed.

Akrsh: “Hey Himanshu! How is the experience of covering two matches starting at the same time?!?” — It’s like no other, as simple as that!

Shyam: “As an SRH captain, if you win the toss, would you bat first and kill the contest or bowl first and spice it up?” — More than spicing things up, I would go as per the pitch and the conditions. So my decision on batting or bowling first would depend on what is more suitable, because to end the season with a consolation win is much better than leaving it with grim faces.

5.15pm With the toss just 15 minutes away, why don’t you quickly finalise your fantasy sides? We are expecting Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah to deliver.

Thalz: “Mumbai scored 190 if I’m correct in 14.3 overs. If they had continued the same rate they would have finished 250ish which is exactly required to have a go today.” — And also bowl Sunrisers out for less than 80?

Abhi: “Will MI not qualify if they chase?” — Unfortunately, they can’t. They must bat first and win by over 170 runs to sneak in.

As Vishal Dikshit’s preview states, it is miracle or bust for Mumbai as they take on Sunrisers. With Kolkata Knight Riders zooming up the NRR chart, the defending champions have been left with almost no chance of making the playoffs.

Jeyarama Balan: “I think Mumbai will score IPL’s first 300 and win by 180 runs” — This is exactly the kind of optimism they need.

5pm Hello everyone. This is a first in that there are concurrent games being held this evening. Not being far from being a dead rubber – Sunrisers Hyderabad are already eliminated while Mumbai Indians need more than a miracle to survive – means we could see some new faces – a la Umran Malik – at least from Sunrisers. This is Himanshu Agrawal bringing you the action from Abu Dhabi, with Sreshth Shah and Karthik Krishnaswamy set to join in later.
