THE PREDICTION

All the pressure is on Sunrisers Hyderabad coming into this final match of the IPL 2020 group stage as they need a win to reach the final four which will eliminate Kolkata Knight Riders on net run rate. They have some good momentum coming into this game having beaten Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last two games to get into this position but now they need to beat arguably the best team in the tournament so far. It will be interesting to see whether Mumbai Indians rotate and rest any of their key men as there is a chance that Quinton de Kock and Jasprit Bumrah could both be held out which would certainly hand the initiative to the Sunrisers. They will still field an extremely strong line-up however as the likes of Chris Lynn could be given a game and he will be eager to impress if he does get the chance. The Sunrisers will have to adapt to Sharjah once again and their bowlers especially who have been in good form. They have restricted opponents to 131 or less in their last three games and they will have to be at their best here. With the pressure off the Indians, that may make them even more dangerous than usual and with all the pressure on the Sunrisers, that could be decisive. The feeling here is that they fall short and Mumbai get the win.
