The Mumbai Indians (MI) are ahead by a 5-2 winning margin over the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the MI vs SRH clash at the Wankhede Stadium. The hosts, who could go to win at most the six games in the IPL 2024, have almost been knocked out of the tournament.

Sunrisers, on the other hand, have a great chance of making a statement and patrolling their position among the top four teams. However, they continue to struggle in the middle phase of the game with the ball in hand.

Sunrisers have the third worst economy of 9.67 in this period of the IPL 2024 before the MI vs SRH face-off, while picking up the third most wickets in this period. For the Mumbai Indians, they have struggled so much in the middle overs with the ball. They have taken the joint second-least wickets (22) in this phase, and have the second-worst economy of 9.82 after Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s 9.85.

The five-time champions have also conceded 54 sixes in the nine-over period between 7-15 overs, with the highest bowling strike of 27, which means for one wicket, it takes them almost 4.3 overs in this IPL 2024.

Among those who have bowled at least 20 overs in the middle phase of the innings during the IPL 2024, Mumbai’s Piyush Chawla is at number nine among the 12 bowlers, all of whom are spinners. Chawla has gone for an economy of 9.27, while he has picked up five wickets in eight innings, before the MI vs SRH encounter.

It’s hard to believe but none of the Hyderabad bowlers is on the list, which talks about how bad their spin attack has been in this season. If Mumbai want to finish the season on a high, they need to improve in this department as a team.
