It will be 8th versus 9th when Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Mumbai Indians at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Tuesday. Both teams beat KKR in their previous games and will be coming into this contest looking to make it three consecutive wins. Lwanele Poswayo has prepared his betting tips for Match 25 of IPL 2023.
Harry Brokk’s move to the top of the order has proved to be a masterstroke by Brian Lara and captain Aiden Markram. The Englishman was brilliant against KKR, scoring 100* off 55 deliveries. Aiden Markram has continued his impressive form this year and will be a key player for SRH in the middle order along with Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klaasen.
Rahul Tripathi will be another key player for SRH on home soil. He scored a match-winning 74* off 48 balls when he last played at this venue against Punjab. He has an impressive record against Mumbai as his last two matches against them yielded scores of 74* and 76. He’s at 4.00 to score 50+ runs and I’m backing him to do so.
For Mumbai Indians, their key players are hitting form with Suryakumar Yadav scoring 43 off 25 balls in their previous game. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan have both been amongst the runs of late with the latter scoring a match-winning 58 against KKR.
From a bowling point of view, Mayank Markande has been a revelation for SRH with 6 wickets in the two games he has played so far and looks good value to be SRH’s top bowler at 5.00.
Only Rashid Khan (5.75rpo) has a better economy rate than Bhuvneshwar Kumar (6.43) against Mumbai Indians, while only Darren Bravo (18.22) had a better average than Bhuvi (18.63).
Marco Jansen has four powerplay wickets in IPL 2023, conceding runs at 5.00rpo during this period.
A wrist spinner returned as Sunrisers’ best bowling figures in their last three matches.
Ishan Kishan strikes at 11.64rpo against Umran Malik in the IPL, scoring 33 runs off 17 balls (4×4 2×6) in two matches, but has been dismissed in both games.
Rohit and Ishan Kishan are the second-quickest opening combination (minimum two partnerships) in this IPL.
Mumbai lost nine of their last 11 matches when starting as the favourites.
