Match 8: HYD vs MUM


Ind T20 League 2024 has got off to a spectacular start, and we have had last over finishes in the last few games. Hyderabad and Mumbai will hunt for their maiden win as they face one another in match number 8 of the tournament. Hyderabad lost their opening fixture against Kolkata, while Mumbai lost their season opener against Gujarat. 

Mumbai enjoy an exceptional record against the men in orange and have emerged victorious in the last four out of the five meetings. They have a formidable batting lineup and will fancy their chances against the former champions. Hyderabad bowled appallingly in their most recent clash, and it will be riveting to see if they can come up with a strong display in front of their home crowd. 

Pat Cummins, Hyderabad's newly appointed skipper failed to get his team over the line in their first game. It was a heart wrenching loss for the side as they suffered a 4 run loss in a high scoring thriller. They will now face a stern test against Pandya and co, and skipper Cummins expects a lively performance from his players. 

Mayank Agarwal and Abhishek Sharma were the top performers for them with bat in hand in the last game and the team will once again count on the pair to give them a flying start. Rahul Tripathi must come good at No.3 and anchor the innings along the dangerous Heinrich Klassen and former skipper Aiden Markram. Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed and Marco Jansen will look to contribute in lower middle order. 

Their bowlers struggled in the last game, and the team will need crucial spells from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen. T Natrajan bowled well, and the team will expect a good show from him and Cummins in the middle overs. Mayank Markande and Shahbaz are the two spinners in this attack. 

Change in skipper didn’t change Mumbai’s trend of losing their season’s inaugural game for the 12th consecutive edition of the Indian T20 League. In a nail biting encounter that went right down the wire, the five time champions failed to hold their nerves and eventually lost the match by 6 runs against Gujarat. Mumbai would like to shrug off the disappointing loss and open their account for the season. They have a decent record against Hyderabad and Pandya would like his players to take inspiration from this. 

Ishan Kishan missed out against Gujarat, and he will eye a strong start in this game with former skipper Rohit Sharma, who did well. The middle order comprises the likes of Naman Dhir, Dewald Brevis and Tilak Varma. Tim David and Hardik Pandya are fierce strikers of the cricket ball and complete a formidable batting lineup for this side. 

Skipper Pandya and Luke Wood looked jaded in the last game, and the team will be hoping for a good show from the duo in the early overs. Jasprit Bumrah lived up to his name and put on a commanding performance in the opening fixture. Shams Mulani, Piyush Chawal and Gerald Coetzee must play the supporting role to perfection, as Hyderabad have clean strikers in their team.

Pitch and Weather Report

Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium has traditionally been kind to batters. The surface here allows batters to play their strokes on the up without much discomfort. Fast bowlers would have a tough time bowling at this deck and the margin of error for them is very little. Spin bowlers will play a pivotal role in these playing conditions. 

Clear skies are predicted for the day.

Match Prediction

Hyderabad had a disappointing time with ball in hand in their last game against Kolkata. They will face a potent batting lineup in this game, and the side needs a clinical show from its bowling attack to induce a favourable outcome . Mumbai has historically enjoyed success against Hyderabad and they will take inspiration from their head to head record against them. 

We are backing Mumbai to win this game.
