Mumbai Indians Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: What to watch out for in IPL 2022
Mumbai Indians are not just the most successful team in IPL but also the most balanced side. The other four semi-finalists were primarily batting or bowling teams. Mumbai's success is partly due to their balance; they have strong bowling and batting lineups. They also have two of the best players in the tournament (Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah).
T20 cricket is a game that rewards balance, so we should expect to see more of this in IPL 2022. But will it be enough? Watching out for these things will make fantasy cricket more fun to play.
This can mean several things: balanced batting lineup, balanced bowling lineup, and skillful team management in general.
Strong opening pair:
This matters because it sets the tone for the rest of the innings.
This is often overlooked as a factor, but it shouldn't be. It can be a misleading factor if you're looking at it in isolation, but it is not irrelevant when you look at it along with other factors, such as wickets lost and overs remaining.
This means how much variety there is in the bowling lineup.

Past IPL performance of MI vs SRH
In this incredible Indian T20 Premier League fixture, Mumbai Indians will face Hyderabad, boasting several top stars, including Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, and others. As there are many international stars on both teams, the list continues. The Mumbai Indians have had a fantastic record in the Indian T20 Premier League with five titles. Still, they failed to qualify for the playoffs in the IPL 2021. However, Hyderabad has only won the title once during their fourth season of IPL 2016 and thus has been one of the most renowned teams in the tournament.
There is no question that Mumbai is a hard-hitting and top-performing team. Their batting is very aggressive, and they have a top-notch team that includes Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard. Meanwhile, Hyderabad has one of the best bowling lineups in the tournament. Both ball-striking and fielding are solid suits for them. Mumbai has a slight edge over Hyderabad in past championships and games won, but Hyderabad's determination cannot be underestimated. It will be interesting to see what happens in the Indian T20 Premier League clash.

Top retained batters and their performance
For us, the new addition of two teams will be fun to watch if they get their act right. The past season was arguably the best so far, and it will be tough for the upcoming seasons to match up to it. More teams in a shorter span of time may cause some issues with regards to scheduling, especially when you closely analyze international fixtures and how they could potentially clash with IPL matches. Having said that, make no mistake: IPL is here to stay, and it is an event young people would surely want to be a part of!
