Match 65 - MUM vs HYD Preview and Fantasy Prediction
Ind T20 League 2022
Match 65- MUM vs. HYD
A must win game for Kane Williamson and company as their hope for qualifying might end on Tuesday if they fail to beat Mumbai. Meanwhile, the 5-time champions will give their all to topple Chennai so that they don’t finish last in the league table. Thus, both the teams will eye for a win and thus expect it to be a fiery affair at Wankhede Stadium.
Mumbai will be coming to the game with a win over their fierce rival Chennai. The team has won three of their last four games and thus will be confident to get the result. Daniel Sams was all fire with the bowl in the last match while Tilak Verma, the newest superstar in the Mumbai camp gave all the fans a brand new song to sing. He is the most dependable player in the Mumbai camp right now and should be promoted up in the order as Suryakumar is not available because of his injury. The opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan needs to play some good cricket and be consistent as the franchise invested more than 30 crores in them. Dewald Brevis, the ‘Baby AB’ should get more chances as he has the talent to do well and be a game changer. Unless Mumbai back players, it won’t be possible for them to get the win. When it comes to the bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah’s return to form is a huge plus point. Overall all the bowlers were good in the last match. Can they keep up with the momentum? That is exactly what we need to see.
After five wins in a row, form took a U-turn and Hyderabad lost five in a row. They do have a slight chance to qualify for the playoffs but that’s very, very low. However, the team needs to try and do everything possible to keep the chances alive. Their problem has been their consistency. Bowlers were winning them matches and once they started performing poorly. Kane Williamson, the captain of the side should lead the team from the front but the Kiwi has scored just 202 runs in 12 matches. Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi are the only players who have done reasonably well. The team miss Natarajan in the middle but Bhuvneshwar’s form should inspire the bowlers to do well.

A very good batting wicket for sure but it was on the slower side in the last match. High scores are very much expected if they change the pitch. Batting second will be ideal on this surface.

Mumbai might get the result when they face Hyderabad at Wankhede. They got the form at the moment. Only the batters need to step up now.
Top Fantasy Picks
Tilak Verma has scored 368 runs in the tournament so far and has been brilliant in his inaugural season. He has been the best player for the franchise this season and is only 19-years old. The youngster definitely has a bright future if he manages to carry his form.
Umran Malik is having a stellar season so far. With a bit of consistency, he can be an asset to the Indian team in the near future. With Steyn by his side, he should only get better.
Jasprit Bumrah has got his mojo back. He can be a real threat to all the Hyderabad batters. He can wreak havoc on a weak batting line-up.
Abhishek Sharma has been Mr. Dependable for Hyderabad this season. The pressure will be on him once again to deliver.
Risky Captaincy Choice
Washington Sundar is our pick for this segment. His all-round skills have impressed one and all and he can create a real impact in this match. He’s a safe bet that you can take.
