The 65th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 will have Mumbai take on Hyderabad at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The most successful team in the history of the league, Mumbai are already knocked out of the race for the playoffs.

They are languishing at the bottom of the points table. Mumbai have 3 wins in 12 matches and have only 2 games remaining this season. With nothing to lose, they would be looking to experiment by giving chances to young talents.

On the other hand, Hyderabad’s hopes of making a top-four finish too have ended. With 5 wins in 12 matches, Kane Williamson and Co. are no longer in contention. Nevertheless, they would be looking to end their campaign on a positive note.

Team News:

Mumbai:

Rohit Sharma’s poor form with the bat has been the biggest reason behind Mumbai’s failure. Mumbai’s haven’t got the starts that they were looking for. However, they will take some positives out of this season. The likes of Tilak Varma, Tim David and Daniel Sams are likely to be seen next year as well. For now, they will be focusing on winning their remaining two matches.

Players to watch out for:

  1. Daniel Sams

Daniel Sams has proved to be a great asset to the team. He has consistently dished out impressive performances. In the last match, he made impressive returns of 3 for 16 in 4 overs and will be the guy to watch out for on Tuesday.

  1. Rohit Sharma
