Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bat first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Sharjah in the first of two IPL 2020 encounters on Sunday. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings would be desperate to find answers to their predicament when they take on Kings XI Punjab in the second match of the day.

MI, having humbled a strong Kings XI Punjab in their last game, didn’t make any changes to the winning combination. SRH opted for two changes, as they brought in Sandeep Sharma and Siddarth Kaul in places of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed.

RCB vs RR, DC vs KKR: The stoic bowler, the tired bowler and a punch pleased pacer

On a day when batsmen like Virat Kohli, Devdutt Paddikal, Shreyas Iyer, and Eoin Morgan made their mark, three bowlers stole some of the limelight too — Navdeep Saini, Tom Curran, and Anrich Nortje.

Priyam Garg: A calculative cricketer who knows his multiplication table

“Did you see how he hit a six with a sweep shot and next ball, he chose to play it late to third man. That showed how match-aware and calculative he is,” says the coach Sanjay Rastogi, a day after his student Priyam Garg scored a match-winning 51 from 26 balls that pulled Hyderabad Sunriers out of the hole against Chennai Super Kings.

But nothing about Garg’s knock surprises Rastogi. The unflustered temperament that soaked up the pressure that must have escalated after Kane Williamson’s annoying cry of ‘C’mon boy!’ at a mix-up, the impeccable shot-selection or the awareness to manoeuvre the field.

Boasting an explosive batting line-up that complements their affective death bowling, Mumbai Indians will have their nose ahead in the IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday. In the event the experienced seamer Bhuvneshwar misses out, table-toppers Mumbai will fancy their chances more at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, whose boundaries are much shorter than Dubai and Abu Dhabi and have been a paradise for power-hitters.

Skipper Rohit Sharma is in sublime form and he can pummel any attack into submission on his day. Rohit has scored 170 runs from four games this season. While the poor form of Quinton De Kock is worrisome, the prolific Suryakumar Yadav would be more than keen to convert his starts. The biggest positive for the defending champions is that their middle-order has finally delivered with Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard launching into opposition attacks with their big-hitting prowess.
