MI has always been a force to reckon with in the IPL and they had shown the same in their previous match against KKR. The reigning champions were in a knot but their bowlers didn’t throw in the towel and made a roaring comeback into the contest to register their maiden win of the season.
SRH dominated the game against RCB for the first 33 overs but lost their way in the final seven to gift away the match. The Orange Army’s middle order has been brittle and they may add New Zealand captain Kane Williamson to bolster their batting.
