On Thursday, Mumbai Indians (MI) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be locking horns with each other for the second time in the 51st game of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While MI has won 7 games out of 12, SRH has registered 6 wins in out of the 12 games they have played so far.
In their respective last games, MI registered a win against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Even SRH managed to win another game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). On Thursday, MI and SRH will be looking forward to registering a win as it will ensure that they will be reaching the playoffs stage.
Let us, try and churn out the top-5 players to watch out in the game:
#5 Rahul Chahar
He went wicket-less in Mumbai’s match against Chennai but finished with figures of 0-19 in 4 overs while defending the target. He has been highly impressive. With 9 wickets in 9 matches, he has become skipper Rohit Sharma’s go-to man for a spin in the middle overs. His best of 3/29 came against the Royals in a losing cause. Given a place in place of last year’s star performer Mayank Markande, Chahar has done well in crucial stages for his team.
