With the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) defending the lowest total of the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) against the Delhi Daredevils (DD), the playoffs doors seems to be nothing but closed for DD. However, the 23rd game of the 11th edition of the team will be played between the teams who are in dying need of a win, Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Out of their first 5 games, MI has won just one match against Royals Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at their home and that will be their only advantage against SRH.
Despite the fact that both MI and SRH have lost their respective last games, they have some proven match-winners in their squad and let us have a look at five such players of both the teams.
1. Rohit Sharma (MI)
Although he got out on a golden duck in the last games against RR, in the game against RCB, Rohit Sharma scored his first fifty of this season. With Evin Lewis dominating in the powerplay, Sharma was contented with giving the strike to the West Indian opener. When the onus was solely on him, Sharma brought out his top game. He smashed individual sixes off Umesh Yadav and Mohammad Siraj in the slog overs. He eventually got out in the last over, scoring 94 (52) with the help of 10 fours and five sixes. However, after scoring badly in the first four games, Rohit has got his form back and he would be looking to continuing the same as well.
