MUM vs HYD, Indian T20 League 2022 Match 65, MPL Prediction and Top Picks

Match: Mumbai vs Hyderabad (MUM vs HYD, Match #65)

Date: May 17, 2022 – 7:30 PM IST

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Mumbai, which became the first side to be knocked out of the race to the playoffs, will play against Hyderabad, a team that can still make the playoffs if they win this game and if the results of other teams go their way. If Delhi beat Mumbai in their next game, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Punjab and Kolkata will be eliminated from the race irrespective of their personal results.

Hyderabad come into this game on the back of a five-match losing streak. They last won a game more than three weeks ago, when they bundled out Bangalore for just 68 runs and chased down the target in eight overs.

Mumbai, meanwhile, have nothing to lose but pride to gain. This has been one of their worst seasons in the history of the tournament – the Rohit Sharma-led side is right at the bottom of the points table with just three wins in 12 games. The lack of contribution from the likes of Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard played a big role in Mumbai’s long list of games lost. To make matters worse, one of their better performers, Suryakumar Yadav, was ruled out of the remainder of the tournament last week after suffering a minor injury.

Ahead of Indian T20 league match 65, let’s look at the head to head total of both teams, the pitch report, weather update, MPL top picks and more.

MUM vs HYD: Top Picks for Indian T20 League 2022, Match 65 (Five players to watch out for)

Top Fantasy Picks for MUM vs HYD

Rohit Sharma – batsman, Mumbai

This season is one to forget for Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma. But his batting stats at the Wankhede Stadium warrant him a place in your fantasy team. He is the highest run-scorer at this venue in T20s, and has two half-centuries in his last seven outings. With only two more games left for Mumbai, the opener will be looking to find his form and make at least one big score this season.

Daniel Sams – all-rounder, Mumbai

The Australian all-rounder has impressed in the last few games and is currently Mumbai’s highest wicket-taker this season with 11 wickets in nine games. He put up a brilliant performance in Mumbai’s previous game against Chennai, picking up three wickets for just 16 runs. With the bat, however, he has not done much work.

Abhishek Sharma – batsman, Hyderabad

The Hyderabad opener is his side’s top run-scorer with 374 runs in 12 games. He comes into this game on the back of an impressive knock against Kolkata three nights ago and will be looking to maintain his good form.

T Natarajan – bowler, Hyderabad

T Natarajan has been absolutely brilliant this season. Despite missing a few matches due to an injury, he is currently the fifth-highest wicket-taker this season with 18 scalps in 10 games. The pacer, along with Umran Malik, played a big role in Hyderabad’s four-match winning streak last month.

Tilak Varma – batsman, Mumbai

Tilak Varma has been Mumbai’s batting mainstay in the middle order in his very first Indian T20 League season. The youngster is Mumbai’s leading run-scorer with 368 runs in 12 games at an average of 40.88. The 19-year-old will be looking to wrap up the season with two more impressive knocks.

Note: The players recommended here need not be a part of the Playing 11 on game day. Users are advised to do their own research also and follow official sources and create their teams.
