In the last league match of IPL 2020 on Tuesday, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on Mumbai Indians (MI). Although MI is relaxed at the top of the table and will remain there, SRH will be battling for a playoff spot.
Not only is this encounter relevant for SRH, but also the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). As the outcome of this game could knock them out of the competition, the loser of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) versus the Delhi Capitals (DC) clash tonight will also be watching closely.
SRH has a decent net run rate, meaning they can go through if they win, but the Hyderabad-based franchise will remain at 12 points if they lose, meaning they can’t make it to the playoffs.
For SRH, it’s a must-win game, while MI will only look to finish the league stage on a high before the playoffs start.
The weather condition is suitable for cricket, there is only a very minimal chance of rain, and the temperature will be in the range of 28 to 30 degrees Celsius.
The Sharjah pitch began as a 200 + wicket, but it has slowed down significantly. During the second innings, there was dew in the last game, so chasing would be the way to go. At this venue, a score about 170-180 will be a strong one to defend.
