The 56th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (2:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
After 55 matches of thrilling contest, we have come down to the last game and finally, the teams for playoffs will also be finalised. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have a great chance to make it to the top four with a win over the table-toppers, however, for that to happen, they will have to play some top-class cricket. Not that they haven’t played so far. They are coming off stunning victories over RCB and DC in their last two matches.
MI, on the other hand, are sitting pretty and have distanced themselves from all the drama in the rest of the points table. It also remains to be seen if their regular skipper Rohit Sharma is fit and available for them ahead of the crucial playoffs week. Having said that, their current combination is doing perfectly well and they might look to rest their top players in this match.
