With a 55-ball 100 against Kolkata, the 24-year-old Brook finally made his arrival official. Over the years, Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad have had many interesting battles, and they will continue that rivalry on Tuesday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, the latter’s home field.
Because they have won three of their last four games, Mumbai has a slight head-to-head advantage, having won 10 of their previous 19 games.
However, Hyderabad prevailed by three runs in the most recent encounter between the two teams, which took place in May at the Wankhede Stadium. Both teams are currently occupying the less-than-comfortable eighth and ninth positions on the ten-team standings of the Indian Premier League.
Just Delhi Capital is beneath them without any successes from five trips.
Five important batsmen who could have an impact on Tuesday are as follows:
When in full flow, Mumbai’s talismanic skipper, Rohit Sharma, is one of the most aggressive batsmen and difficult to contain. He bowls with style and fluency, and the way he chooses the gaps in the field can frustrate his opponents.
Sharma was supposed to miss the last match because of a stomach bug yet made an unexpected entry in the final part of the game as an ‘Effect Substitute’, where he scored a fast fire 20 runs.
He needs to stay at the crease for longer and help Ishan Kishan build a solid foundation for the innings.
