Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on match 9 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 going on at the Mumbai Indians (MI) champions Chidambaram Stadium on Saturday. MI has played two matches this season. They lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the season opener, but followed it up with a win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). On the other hand, SRH has made a poor start to the season and is yet to win. The team led by David Warner lost to KKR and RCB. SRH is the only team in the tournament that has yet to score a point against their name.
Suryakumar Yadav (9.5 credits): – Suryakumar Yadav has made a strong debut in IPL 2021 and with another good IPL season, he will be arguing as India’s mainstay for the upcoming T20 World Cup. In the opening season of MI against RCB, India scored 31 runs in 23 balls with the help of 4 fours and a six. Although MI lost the match, Suryakumar was the second highest run-scorer in that match. He scored a brilliant half-century against KKR and led his team to victory by 10 runs. He scored 56 runs in 36 balls with the help of 7 fours and 2 sixes.
Jason Holder (9 credits): – West Indies all-rounder Jason Holder was acquired by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the end of last season, and promised to make his place in the playoffs with some decent returns. Holders have played only one match so far – against RCB on Wednesday. The 29-year-old took three wickets in four overs and conceded 30 runs. He was responsible for Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and Kyle Jamieson. Although it was a poor bat performance (4 runs off 5 balls), Holder’s all-round abilities earned him a good take on fantasy cricket and fetched a lot of points.
Trent Boult (9 credits): – New Zealand fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is the lead bowler for MI. Trent Boult has played both matches for Mumbai so far and took three wickets in eight overs and scored 63 runs. Bolt’s ability to take wickets in the opening round as well as at the time of death made him the center of star attraction for Saturday’s match.
