(IPL)

IPL 2020: Sunrisers Hyderabad opted to field first against Royal Challengers after Mumbai Indians, who have already qualified for the playoffs, defeated Delhi Capitals by nine wickets on Saturday.

Jasprit Bumrah (3/17 in four overs) and Trent Boult (3/21 in four overs) choked DC to 110/9 at the end of 20 overs in the first innings. Ishan Kishan’s unbeaten 72-run knock helped MI chase the target of 111.

Meanwhile, RCB can’t afford to lose both their last two games as it will affect their NRR, resulting in their elimination if other teams on 14 points have higher run rates. Sitting on the sixth spot with 10 points from 12 games, SRH need to win their remaining two matches — against RCB and MI — to reach 14 points to stay in the reckoning.

Do-or-die situation for Warner and his men

Coming into the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, RCB have seven wins to their name while SRH have five victories. RCB, though, are coming into this game following a defeat against Mumbai Indians (MI), but SRH won their last match against Delhi Capitals (DC).

16:20 (IST)31 Oct 2020
Playoff qualification chances for SRH

The equation is pretty straightforward for them. They need to beat both RCB and Mumbai Indians in their last two games. If they do so, then net run rate shouldn’t be a problem as they are in a much better position in that regard than all the teams who are still trying to get into the playoffs.

Here's what both skippers have to say

Shreyas Iyer - We wanted to bat first as well. Previous results tell it's better to bat first. Batting hasn't been up to the mark, hopefully, it will do well today. Three changes for us - Praveen Dubey makes his IPL debut. Prithvi Shaw and Harshal Patel are back. We are motivated to do well as a team, want to finish on a good note.

Kieron Pollard - We will field first. Not sure what this pitch will do, it's better to chase down the target. Two changes for us - Hardik is resting today and Pattinson misses out. They have been replaced by Jayant Yadav and Nathan Coulter-Nile. We have been playing well with everyone chipping in, hopefully, it will continue. We need to go hard till the end, not want to get complacent.

15:06 (IST)31 Oct 2020
Delhi Capitals (Playing XI)

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Dubey, Anrich Nortje

Mumbai Indians won the toss, to bowl first

Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard(c), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

14:33 (IST)31 Oct 2020
Mumbai's batting fireworks

Quinton de Kock is the highest run-scorer for MI while Ishan Kishan has produced some fine performances with the bat this season. Suryakumar Yadav who gained the spotlight for his knock against RCB will look to maintain the fluency with the bat. Saurabh Tiwary would want to get going after departing early last match. The finishing trio of Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya make MI a tough proposition in the death overs.

SRH need two wins

The equation is pretty straightforward for them. They need to beat both RCB and Mumbai Indians in their last two games. If they do so, then net run rate shouldn’t be a problem as they are in a much better position in that regard than all the teams who are still trying to get into the playoffs.

Will KKR show some spark?

They have had an up-and-down campaign and need to beat RR in their final league game to stay relevant. They would ideally like to do so in convincing fashion as their net run rate is the lowest among three teams at 12 points at the moment.

RR have a must-win game vs KKR

Wins in their last two games have rejuvenated their campaign. Now they face KKR in a must-win game with the winners staying in reckoning and the losers bowing out.
