Sunrisers Hyderabad almost chased down 209. They fell short by just four runs as they finished on 204. Heinrich Klaasen’s 63 off 29 balls almost won the game for SRH. The SRH bowlers went around the park conceding over 200 runs. Heading into their first home game, in Hyderabad which is also a high-scoring venue, the bowlers will have their work cut out. Speaking about their batting unit, Klaasen showed his form with the bat in the very first game and his form is key to SRH’s success for the rest of the season. 

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians failed to chase down 169 against Gujarat Titans in their first game. They needed 49 runs heading into the final five overs with almost six to seven wickets in hand. Hardik Pandya dropped himself to number seven in the batting order but he failed to take his team over the line. Pandya and his men would like to put this loss behind them and earn their first points for the season. They have a good record against the Sunrisers, and Pandya would like his players to take inspiration from those wins.   

Both SRH and MI are still looking for their first points in the tournament after losing their opening matches in the last over.
