The recent form guide of the two teams, however, suggests that SRH has had the upper hand. In the previous five encounters, the “Orange Army” has won three matches, while the Mumbai-based side has only won two.
Lack of home advantage has been one of the features of the Indian Premier League’s 13th edition since the pandemic has forced it to be played in the United Arab Emirates.
On that note, Sunday’s day game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad will surely be a clash of equals since both the teams will be in action at Sharjah for the first time this season.
