Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost their last five games.
Mumbai Indians take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in game 65 of IPL 2022 on Tuesday. It will be the penultimate game for both teams. MI, already racing out of the playoffs, will aim to end their campaign with a win in the remaining games. MI defeated Chennai Super Kings in the final game by 5 wickets after bundling the defending champions for just 97 runs, chasing this total in 14.5 overs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won 5 out of 12 matches and need to win the remaining 2 matches to qualify for the play-offs. SRH has lost his last five games and it would be difficult to make a comeback at this stage of the competition. Four of these five losses came in as second batter and SRH hoped for a better performance from the batters.

MI vs SRH, Match 65 Pitch Report:
The bowlers have found the code to perform exceptionally well on the Wankhede in the last few matches and the same can happen in this game too. Batters would have to take some risks to score points and they won’t have any free offers. The team that wins the toss may appear to bat and put a decent total on the board.
