IPL 2020: Top 3 Picks for Mumbai Indians against Sunrisers Hyderabad

Mumbai Indians

With Mumbai Indians breaking their tradition of losing the initial matches of the tournament and Hyderabad finally calibrating to Arab’s heat, are climbing up the ladder after suffering two straight losses coming into the tournament. These two giants will be facing each other on the 17th match on a doubleheader on Sunday. With heavy batting line ups from both, the teams coupled with Sharjah stadium is expected to be a high scoring game. Both the teams have won their previous games do not want to lose their momentum and are about to engage in a serious battle.

Mumbai Indians were at their best against Kings XI Punjab. Not only their batting clicked, but also their bowling too. Jasprit Bumrah seems to have regained his form after a super over against Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, the worry lies in Quinton de Kock. The player hasn’t hit the best form and Mumbai Indians might offer him one last chance as Ishan Kishan has grown leaps and bounds. Here are the top three picks from Mumbai Indians who could change the course of the game.

#1)Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma

Rohit has been consistent at the top of the order for Mumbai Indians over the years. Being the captain, he takes up the responsibility every time and is successful in leading the team to 4 IPL trophies. This Indian opener is seen in great touch in this year of IPL too by scoring two half-centuries and also earning a man of the match award until now.

Rohit Sharma joined the elite club of 5000 runs along with Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina in the match against Punjab. Sharma should be sure the top pick for this match.

#2) Keiron Pollard

Kieron Pollard IPL

This big West Indian is usually known for his big hits and cameos he plays at the end of the innings, but this time around the maturity he has shown is exceptional. The innings he played against Royal Challengers which helped Mumbai to be in the game and to take the game to super over was just mind-blowing. Polly is boosting with confidence since the win from Caribbean Premier League and has carried his form from the CPL to the UAE.

Kieron Pollard completed a milestone of becoming the only player to have played 150 matches for the Mumbai Indians. He will be one of the top three picks against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.

#3) Jasprit Bumrah

Although this top T-20 bowler is not amongst the top wicket-takers in this year’s IPL, he has not failed to put a lid on the runs scored. Speaking about the lack of wickets, his tight bowling has helped to open up the chances at the other end and is the chief reason to be on this list. IPL being a long tournament, there is every chance of his potential being unleashed in the coming matches
