The 17th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Mumbai and Hyderabad at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Dubai. We have got the best Mumbai vs Hyderabad team prediction for today’s match.
Mumbai vs Hyderabad Match 17 is scheduled to start at 03:30 PM IST (02:00 PM local time) (10:00 AM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
Defending champions Mumbai will be taking on Hyderabad in the second day game of the season on a double-header Sunday. Both the teams are coming off a victory with the David Warner-led side registering their second consecutive win against Chennai on Friday. Mumbai is looking the most balanced side this season, on paper and on the field as well.
They have four points with two wins against Kolkata and Punjab. It will be their first game at Sharjah and we can expect their hard hitting middle-order to put up a show again as they scored 89 runs in the last five overs in both of their last two games. However, they are expected to go with the same XI at Sharjah to make it six points in five games.
On the other side, Hyderabad are back on track after two losses in the first two games. They had a convincing win against Delhi in Abu Dhabi, followed by some match-winning contributions from their youngsters against Chennai in Dubai. After the collapse of the top four, it was Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma, who took the responsibility of taking the team to a defendable target.
Abdul Samad also had a good day with the ball, where he impressed everyone with his leg-spin against someone like Dhoni. They possess a lot more balance now in their XI but Bhuvneshwar’s injury may prove to be a very big loss for them. However, they have three wins in the last five games against Mumbai. A great contest between the bat and ball awaits in front of us.
