IPL Match 9
Time : 7:30 PM IST
Date : 17 April 2021
Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
In the 9th match of IPL 2021 on Saturday Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad is scheduled to broadcast at 7:30 PM IST. Mumbai Indians have won one match and lost one out of their two matches so far while Sunrisers Hyderabad have made a hash for themselves by losing both the matches that they could have won. In both matches SRH could not chase down the target, especially in their last match against RCB that they lost from a position of dominance.
Even as SRH’s bowling looked decent, it’s their batting that remains an area of concern. David Warner and his men were well within a chance of achieving the targets in both matches. But a sudden collapse in both matches meant they fell agonizingly close to the target. Another loss could dent their confidence and they are in dire need to change something to find a win.
Rohit Sharma’s men would be high on confidence after securing a victory over the Knight Riders following a stupendous bowling performance while defending a low score. After losing the first match to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), this team made a strong comeback by defeating Kolkata Knight Riders, defending a low total of 142 runs, credits to the stunning bowling performance from their leg-spinner Rahul Chahar.

The pitch at the Chepauk hasn’t been an easy one for batting by any means. It has gotten slower and batting second becomes even tougher. Targets above the 160-run mark can be tricky to chase down. Batting first should be the way forward.
Possible Playing XI
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Marco Jansen, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult.
