(Mumbai Indians takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 20th match of IPL 2014 at Dubai on Wednesday. Catch Live Scores and Live Updates of the match here)
Mumbai Indians take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last game of the UAE leg of IPL 2014. Mumbai Indians are the defending champions but they have lost all games that they have played so far but they have a chance to start the Indian leg of the IPL 2014 on a winning momentum with a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Sunrisers Hyderabad have a win from 4 matches and they will also aim at making it to 2 wins rather than stay at the lower ranks of the points table.
Mumbai Indians has a good team but things just haven’t been going well for them right from the auctions when they decided to let go of Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Johnson and Dwayne Smith who are making the top news in the games when they play with the bat or ball and sometimes both. Mumbai needs to look to the future and forget the bad decisions to try and get the right momentum in this tournament to salvage the spiraling situation.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are in a slightly better position only because of the sole victory otherwise the team is in a bit of same stage as the Mumbai Indians with low totals set and inability to chase the targets set by their opponents. Dale Steyn leads the bowling department for the Sunrisers Hyderabad but despite that, the bowling as well as the batting has pretty much failed on most occasions which has led to the poor performance of the Hyderabad this tournament.
