Ishan Kishan will be key for Mumbai.

It is the last day of the league stage of the Indian T20 League. For the first time, concurrent double-headers are being played in the league. But only Hyderabad vs Mumbai game is of any significance at the moment with the Rohit Sharma-led side playing to make it to the top four in the points table. If Kolkata manage to win against Rajasthan, then Mumbai will need to win by a certain margin.
Hyderabad, on the other hand, are already knocked out and can drag Mumbai out along with them if they win this. They defeated Bangalore to spoil their top two spot in the table the other day and it remains to be seen if they can play the role of party poopers for Mumbai as well.

The Hyderabad skipper looked in good touch with the bat in the previous game. He scored 33 runs before getting out but was instrumental on the field helping his side beat Bangalore. Williamson is a fighter and he would be keen on signing off on a high before joining New Zealand team for the World Cup.
Ishan Kishan slammed an unbeaten 50 off 24 balls against Rajasthan as Mumbai cantered to victory in just 8.2 overs. He has returned to form opening the innings and Mumbai will need him to continue batting in the same vein in order to score quick runs irrespective of when they are batting.
