IPL 2014: Hyderabad Sunrisers set for Mumbai Indians showdown
Dubai International Cricket stadium would stand host as Hyderabad Sunrisers and Mumbai Indians clash later today. Both teams are placed in the bottom half of the standings table, where Hyderabad have won one and Mumbai have not won a single game in their four matches played so far.

Many are surprised to note Mumbai's poor run of form in the ongoing edition, as they have a good squad, capable of challenging for the IPL title. With batsmen such as Rohit Sharma, Pollard, Mike Hussey, Anderson, they look strong, but have not been able to deliver the goods.

Apart from their batting, they also have some high-profiled bowlers, including Lasith Malinga, who is considered to be the best T20 bowler in world cricket. And in Ojha, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Mumbai Indians look a well balanced side as well, but their results does not reflect their strength. Can the Mumbai Indians batsmen and bowlers stand up against Hyderabad and register their first win in the competition?

It is not going to be an easy outing against Hyderabad, who are also eager to climb up the points table. They have only managed to win against Delhi and have faltered against other teams in the competition.

Like Mumbai Indians, they have a well balanced unit, but have failed. Their top order resembling Shikhar Dhawan, Aaron Finch and David Warner is comparable to any teams' top order in the IPL. Sunrisers to a certain extent depend on these batsmen to perform and score maximum runs, which is not justifiable.

Compared to the batsmen, it is their bowlers, which looks strong. Dale Steyn, Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra and B Kumar have enough experience in international cricket as top class bowlers to help Hyderabad succeed in the competition.
