Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) will meet the Kane Williamson-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in match 55 of the IPL 2021 edition, on Friday evening (October 8). This will be the penultimate clash of the league stage as the competition heads to the playoffs.
Talking about the playoffs, Delhi Capitals (DC), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are set to enter the last four whereas Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are firm favourites to secure the fourth spot. They have very much qualified, after a whopping 86-run win over Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Thursday (October 7), but MI still have an improbable task ahead to topple KKR and take the fourth spot in the SRH face-off.
It all seems done and dusted but MI still have a chance. They need to beat SRH by a whopping 170-run margin, or more, to move past KKR in NRR whereas they will be eliminated if they bat second. Ahead of the clash, here's the stats, trivia and squad details for SRH vs MI clash:
