In the 19th match of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, Mumbai Indians (MI) will be travelling Hyderabad to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on April 6. The home team has been in rampant form in the last three games, and have won in all of them. On the other hand, MI has had a start-stop season so far, winning two and losing an equal number of matches. Will SRH win their fourth consecutive contest or will MI be able to stop their juggernaut in Hyderabad or not, will be an interesting watch for the fans. As SRH vs MI, 19th IPL match 2019 is only a few hours away, we at LatestLY bring you a list of five key players in the match who can swing the game their way on their day. Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians Live Cricket Score.
David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
After being banned for a year, the explosive Australian opener has begun his IPL stint on a positive note. The hunger to score runs seems to be pretty much visible on his face. Warner, along with Jonny Bairstow has provided SRH steady partnerships in the previous encounters. In order to thump Mumbai on their home turf, Warner will have to bring his A-game into the match.
Hardik Pandya (Mumbai Indians)
The dashing all-rounder has had a roller-coaster ride in the last 12 months. Being injured, and returning to the team, only to be suspended after the controversial ‘Koffee With Karan’ episode – Hardik Pandya has had a lot of flak to face, both on and off the field of late. However, he has held his ground well in the IPL and has delivered with trailblazing cameos for MI. To break SRH’s streak in the season, MI fans would surely want another ‘Pandya Waltz’, this time in Hyderabad.
Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
The wonder-spinner from Afghanistan continues to win hearts with every appearance he makes in an IPL match. It has been difficult for even the most aggressive batsman to take Rashid Khan head-on in any game. Known to break partnerships and stem the flow of runs, SRH would be relying on Rashid’s spin-theatrics to the trick against a strong MI team on Saturday.
Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians)
Jasprit Bumrah, one of the best fast bowlers in the world in the moment, hasn’t begun the IPL 12 season as he might have earlier thought. Bumrah hasn’t had picked a lot of wickets, and have rather leaked runs in this edition so far. For MI to win the contest against SRH today, and increase their prospects of qualifying in the playoffs’ this season, Mumbai would need their premier bowler up and firing, and soon.
Yuvraj Singh (Mumbai Indians)
Yuvraj Singh was a surprise pick in the IPL Auction earlier this year. So, when he was drafted in the first XI of the first Mumbai Indians’ match this season, it raised more eyebrows. However, he shut his critics with a swashbuckling half-century in the first match. The innings showed us glimpses of the vintage ‘Yuvraj’ everyone has been rooting for. However, in the next few games, he hasn’t been that effective. With three failures, and a young Ishan Kishan on the bench; come Saturday, the onus will be on the veteran to deliver.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are currently on the top of IPL 12 Points Table with 6 points from 4 matches they have played in the season. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians have only 4 points in games they have played and are on the 6th spot in the table. Stay tuned to us for all the latest updates about Indian Premier League 2019.
