Indian T20 League 2023

HYD vs MUM, 25th Match



The 25th game of the Indian T20 League will see the face-off between HYD and MUM on Tuesday, 18th April 2023, at 07:30 PM IST. The game will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Their record has been relatively equal regarding head-to-head matches between the two teams. The MUM and HYD have each won 10 of the 19 games they have played.

The HYD has finally gained momentum after a tentative start to the season, as they have won back-to-back games.

In their most recent encounter against the KOL, Harry Brook, who the HYD auctioned for a record 13.5 crores for this season, has finally lived up to his price tag by blasting the season's first century and leading HYD to a victory total of 228.

The team's captain, Aiden Markram, made a half-century in that game, while Heinrich Klaasen and Abhishek Sharma also scored runs, which should instill confidence in them. However, to relieve the load on the other batters, Mayank Agarwal must quickly rebound from a long, lean period.

HYD has several high-caliber pacers in the shape of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, T Natarajan, and Umran Malik. Hence their bowling may be characterized as being pace-heavy. However, Mayank Markande has taken 6 wickets in only two games and has been the show's star. Overall, it seems like the HYD has discovered a decent mix of talent. 

The five-time champions, who have won their last two games, have now fully realized their potential. Consequently, they have gradually climbed the points list and are currently ranked eighth.

In the previous two games, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan gave the squad a strong start; they will want to do the same in this one. Tilak Varma has consistently performed well at number 3.

In the last game against the KOL, Surya Kumar Yadav, who had a tranquil season thus far, finally managed to score some runs and would have gained some confidence.

Tim David, Cameron Green, and Nehal Wadhera are among the Mumbai Indians' more potential batters lower in the order, but they haven't been reliable enough. The bowlers have also improved over the last few games, much like the hitters.

Jason Behrendorff and Piyush Chawla collected 3-wicket hauls in the last game, and they'll be aiming for a similar effort tonight. Both Riley Meredith and Hrithik Shokeen have taken wickets, albeit cheaply. We can anticipate the Mumbai Indians to put up a spirited fight in this match since the squad is now functioning properly as a unit.

Match Prediction

MUM's hitters are back in form and appear threatening. Although HYD has also taken some significant hits, their campaign will depend on how they react when foreign hitters are dismissed for low runs. Both teams' present condition is similar. Mumbai begins as our preferred team because of their experience, batting variety, and big-hitting skills, which will give them a minor advantage in this match. Mumbai Indians will triumph, in our opinion.


Top Fantasy Picks

Harry Brook, an English right-handed opener, scored an unbroken 100 off only 55 balls on Friday, hitting an astonishing 12 fours and three sixes. He finally gets his form and could score in this game too.

Aiden Markram, the team's captain, has improved the team's results despite missing the first game. He has 50 runs over his previous two innings and 37 batted in. He provides a balance of hitting and an anchor role as well.

Suryakumar Yadav - The top-order batsman scored four fours and three sixes against KOL in Indian T20 League 2023, breaking a lousy scoring streak that spanned a long time. It’s looking like he got the touch from the last innings against KOL and might score in this game.

Tim David is one of T20 cricket's top "finishers," according to the Australian international. He has completed the past two innings without being out, so he will feel confident going into this match.


Risky Captaincy Choice

Ishan Kishan: Ishan Kishan was looking good in touch against KOL and had some excellent hits. Although he’s trying to find his form, once he gets that, he could turn around any game with his performance. Along with that, he can give you points with his keeping too.
